Kentucky is my pick to win Final Four

Picking the Final Four is difficult to say the least.

In the past several years, parity has ruled in the tournament.

Just think, Butler finished as the national runner-up FOR THE SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR, while Virginia Commonwealth University made an improbable run to the Final Four as well.

This year should lend more of the same.

I like Kentucky as the only No. 1 seed to advance to the Final Four.


The Wildcats have at least three NBA lottery picks and are loaded.

In the West region, Michigan State is solid, but not enough to hold off Missouri.

North Carolina has a lot of talent, but I like Kansas a little more to make the Final Four.

The East is where I see a surprise. Florida State is very good and is hot going into the tournament with wins over North Carolina and Duke. Syracuse is deep, but has been shaky as of late, and Ohio State is way too inconsistent to make a deep run.

In the Final Four, I see Kentucky knocking off Florida State in the title game.

GOOD MOVE FOR RG3 – The NFL is a quarterbacks league and the Washington Redskins don’t have anything.

The team’s two-headed “monster” last year of Rex Grossman and John Beck was mediocre to say the least.

Giving up three first-round picks and a second-round choice to move up four picks is steep, but the team’s likely choice of Robert Griffin III gives them a much better chance of winning.

TEBOW TO BROWNS? – I’m surprised, but it’s quite possible that Peyton Manning could sign with the Denver Broncos.

What would happen with Tim Tebow?

If he’s traded the Cleveland Browns should go after him. The team doesn’t have a significant wide receiver threat and could utilize the same scheme Denver had last year.

It’s worth a thought.
