Congratulations to Florida. They were just better. I think the difference in the game was their 6-0 surge coming out of halftime, which really put the game out of reach. Also, the annoucers kept mentioning Mason's lack of made 3-pointers, but it seemed to me that the problem wasn't their not making three-pointers as it was their not taking them.

Yeah, it was a nice feel-good run for the Pats. I hate to see this, because I'm all about the underdog.

I hate to see this because so far these are the dullest pair of final four blowouts I can remember.

Well, at least now everyone knows who George Mason was. Don't they?

God, tieguy, I know. After so many exciting games, one of the most potentionally great Final Fours of all time, and... boring blowouts. And UCLAme is still in it. Hooray.

So now it's Florida and UCLA. My bucks (if I were a gambling man) would be on UCLA. If for no other reason then it'll mean big time partying here in L.A. and not at the expense of one of my Detriot teams.
