The Rematch Arrives

One win away from a storybook season and a national title...again.

Only this time the Ohio State Buckeyes are the underdogs, and the Florida Gators the seemingly unstoppable favorites. After seeing in person the Gators' two wins in St. Louis, and watching them again tonight, I'm a believer. I suspect they'll have too much firepower for the Bucks to handle Monday. However, unlike in Glendale on January 8, the Buckeyes will show up.

UPDATE 4/1: Kyle Lamb at Scout.com analyzes the semi-final win over Georgetown.

UPDATE 4/1: It's good that the hype for the final game can only last for two days. Here's a good piece on Conley Jr., via a site I just discovered, BuckeyeFansOnly.com.
