The Final Four is set!

Next Saturday, April 5th, #1 Florida will take on #7 UConn at 5:09 pm eastern, and after that #2 Wisconsin will take on #8 Kentucky. What we're looking at is the potential for a Big Ten vs SEC final or a SEC vs SEC final (totally discounting UConn here). What fun would it be to watch a Big Ten team to compete for a national title against the dirty, nasty, ugly SEC!
