Final Foray

Just wanted to put down some quick thoughts before the Final Four begins. Who I'd like to see win, in descending order.

Notre Dame. Despite the fact that they are a thorn in my side vis-a-vis the whole expansion mess, I'll concede that their national profile, in conjunction with their location outside of the hotbeds, makes them an attractive choice for the growth of the sport.

Cornell. A hotbed team, but they haven't won in a while, breaking the stronghold of the Big Four of the past nearly two decades.

Virginia-Duke. Virginia's part of the old guard, and Duke is Duke. I'd rather not see any of them hoist the trophy.
