All right, well, we think we can all agree that, as sports fans, we are owed an epic national title matchup tonight. This has been the least memorable NCAA Tournament of the last decade — except for those ones we can't remember — and the only thing that can salvage it is a Connecticut-Duke or Georgetown-North Carolina type game. It's the least they can give us.
So, as established earlier today, either we're gonna have a two-time champion for the first time in more than 15 years — and a school that has won three major national championships in the last 12 months — or Greg Oden is gonna get his Carmelo Anthony on.
We have our own rooting interests, but mostly, we just want a close game. This whole tourney is due.
Consider this the game thread ... we'll pop back in postgame with a "Congrats, Champions" type of deal. Enjoy!
