W. Virginia KOs No. 1 Kentucky, heads to Indy: Country roads, take me home. Or better yet, Indianapolis. It's almost heaven, West Virginia. Da'Sean Butler and the Mountaineers are off to the Final Four for the first time since 1959.

Looks like it's going to be one of those years. We're one Baylor win from a oneless Final Four.

Since my bracket was trashed last week, I'm all for the oneless Final Four.

Go Bears!

I hope Baylor beats Duke, despite having Duke make it to the final four in both of the bracket competitions I'm in.

Here is the Mountaineers official sports site, MSNSportsNet.

Give Huggins loads of credit for the W, he really read Kentucky well - deny Wall the middle and make him give up the ball.

Calipari proved again he has no clue how to adjust in a game situation and can get beat holding 5 aces. Can you imagine how good WV, Duke, Michigan State or a pile of other teams would be with just 1 of Kentucky's top 7?

Wall and Cousins are lottery picks, Patterson's stock will suffer because he played in Calipari's system, but is still a first rounder. Calipari will again get a top recruiting class because he's devised "methods" for the 1 and dones.

In 2011 Kentucky can expect another top 5 ranking, and a similar ending.

(** Words from someone who had Kansas beating WV in his pool, Duke out in the 3rd round)
