its about an hour before tip off and despite the fact that the NCAA took away many of the press seats, i am sitting in my reserved space in the press box exactly at midcourt. no its not courtside, but i condisder myself very lucky since most of the media will be watching from the press room ( as big as half a football field).

The anticipation is incredible. 70,000 fans wearing two shades of yellow, red, or my favorite color, Syracuse Orange. Most folks still think this is Louisville's championship to lose, but i just have hunch that the winner of the Syracuse-Michigan game will be crowned champ Monday night.

It was a beautiful Spring day in Atlanta today with the Cherry Blossems in bloom. Had pizza at what has been voted the number 1 pizza restuatant in America. cant say i disagree.But its time for basketball. Dont forget to read my column in tomorrow's paper.
