Move over Tobacco Road, you have some company when it comes to the best rivalry in college basketball. For years there has been little doubt that the best rivalry in college basketball was Duke-North Carolina. They always meet twice a year and each game gets national attention and hype thanks to ESPN. For the most part the games have lived up to the hype.

It was a crazy year in college basketball. There should be little doubt that the Final Four will be any different. If you picked this final four, I hope you played the lottery, went to the tracks, or made it to Las Vegas to cash in on your luck.

Mike Rice is one foul-mouthed fall guy. When I watched the ESPN video showing Rice, Rutgers' rather unsuccessful head basketball coach, hitting, shoving and berating players, calling them names and pushing them around the court, I knew he was toast.

There's no doubt in my mind, the 2013 Louisville Cardinals resemble a former Champion from 11 years ago… the 2002 Maryland Terrapins. There are two different categories I wanted to break this done into 3 different comparisons: player personal and tournament history.

North Carolina is more beloved across the nation, despite being the alma mater of more SOB stars than any other place on basketball's earth. Why?

In the NCAA tournament this year, the East was about as close to chalk as you could get. The biggest upset in this region was 12th seeded California defeating fifth seed UNLV. The other lone upset was ninth seed Temple beating the eight seed NC State – if you consider a nine over eight seed an "upset."

They don't call it the "Wild West" for nothing. The only regional without the top overall seed going into the Sweet 16, the West has been the craziest bracket this year. How crazy? The remaining seeds are a 2, 6, 9, &13 seed.

If you watched the first weekend of the NCAA tournament, then you have no doubt seen the highlights of Florida Gulf Coast. You have seen them throwing lobs during crucial points of the game and cheering out of amazement. Well, you probably didn't cheer if you were a Georgetown or San Diego State fan.
