Two games today, but I'm going to miss both thanks to a marathon of manly movies. (Reviews up tomorrow.)
Since sports pundits require the short term memory of Lenonard in Memento, here are today's guaranteed predictions, forgetting the past and forging boldly into the future.
Georgetown v. Ohio State
Ohio State might outmatch the Hoyas in sheer athleticism, talent, strategy, endurance, media savvy, fan base, mascot accessibility, pep squad buoyancy, and waterboy efficiency, but after the UNC collapse late in regulation and overtime, is there any doubt that Georgetown is divinely favored?
Georgetown 70, OSU 66
Florida v. UCLA
Re-match. Re-match. Re-match. Re-match.
UCLA takes it. This is just not Florida's year, and this is a much better UCLA squad. The Bruins aren't just gunning for revenge, but respect, for themselves and for the Pac 10.
Re-spect. Re-spect. Re-spect. Re-spect.
UCLA 74, Florida 71
