Thanks to Florida’s near choke job last night we lost the cover of a game that should have never gone to overtime. As a result we finished 4-5 in the Sweet 16. That runs our record in this year’s NCAA Tourney to 37-21-1.

The only way to rebound from a disappointing few games in the Sweet 16?

By going 4-0 in the Elite 8.

So here we go:

Kansas -6.5 vs. Oregon

This is the BLOOD. BANK. Guarantee. Kansas will win by double digits and this game won’t be close for the final ten minutes. Trust me. I’m big on the Jayhawks here.

Xavier +8.5 vs. Gonzaga

Florida -3 vs. South Carolina

UNC vs. Kentucky +2.5

Here we go, kids. We’re going 4-0. 

And if you missed my epic destruction of Awful Announcing, make sure you read it. Story went up on Friday afternoon and many of you had probably already left work for the day.
