And Another Thing


Never. Mind.

Well, it's official now. This is where you come to find out who not to pick in Da Tournament.

With the demise of the Ohio State Buckeyes last night, my confidently predicted Final Four is now food for worms. All four of the teams I envisioned being in Houston -- OSU, Pitt, Duke and Louisville -- are history. Louisville's been gone so long Charles Barkley's had time to wrack up triple-digit head shots on Rick Pitino in the CBS studio.

(And what's up with that, anyway? His team wasn't even cold before Pitino showed up on the set to endure Barkley's nonstop barrage of smack about the Big Least. God love Sir Cumference. Once again he proves he's the most entertaining analyst in sports. He's kind of what Ricky Gervais would be like if Ricky knew anything about pro and college buckets).

Anyway ... I'm done. Butler's clearly going to win it all now.

You heard it here first.
