In case you're wondering, yes I had trouble getting to sleep last night.
The day has arrived. In 11 hours, our boys will be on the court, fighting for the National Championship. And they get to try and win it against Florida....hell, yes, I'm excited.
I wanted Florida in this one. On Selection Sunday, I quickly scanned the bracket and checked to see where Florida was and whether or not we could face them for the championship....and was thrilled to see it was possible.
Some will say "be careful what you wish for", but I say if I'm not willing to face and defeat the big nemesis, then what the hell am I doing here to begin with?
On a different note, how many times do I have to see stories about how incredible and unbeatable this Florida team is? Pat Forde yesterday had an article so ridiculous that I think he was wiping his chin off for at least an hour after.
One of Forde's points was Florida's record over the past two years...they are 67-11. Guess what, Pat? If Ohio State wins tonight, both the Buckeyes and Gators will own a Championship over the past two seasons, but the Buckeyes will be 62-9. Yes, you read that right....NINE losses instead of 11. Will we see a glowing Forde article claiming Ohio State to have the "infallible team"?
So again, I ask....what the hell does a #1 ranked team have to do to earn respect? We've been wondering that for six weeks now, the day we were first ranked at #1. I suppose there's only one thing left to do to get that respect.
Go win the National Championship.
