Yesterday Hidden Remote went 4 for 4 in picking the Thursday night Sweet Sixteen games. Dayton, Wisconsin, Florida and Arizona all advanced to this weekend’s Elite Eight games. Tonight we get to watch the second half of the Sweet 16 games, and find out who will advance in the other side of the bracket towards the NCAA championship.
Last night’s late games started at 10:15 on the east coast. It made sense because UCLA, Arizona, and San Diego State are West coast teams. However for fans of the Florida Gators the game was a true test on fan’s age. I found myself yawning in respect for the Florida Gators more than applauding.
Fans of Kentucky and Louisville probably won’t need to stock up on coffee tonight because those two teams and fan bases hate each other. The game is not only for the heart and soul of Kentucky, but also another chance for former Kentucky coach Rick Pitino to once again exact a measure of revenge on his old team. If you see one game tonight make sure it is Kentucky vs Louisville.
