No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks vs. No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes
The Skinny: The Buckeyes were the best team in the Big Ten this season, while the Jayhawks were technically the best team in the Big 12. No, they were the best team. Screw you, Mizzou. This should be a great game, as both teams have talented stars and balanced offenses, but I don’t think it will be nearly as good as the first game, which is why I’ll probably watch it at the Spearmint Rhino with Jason Whitlock. I just assume he’s always there.
What you need to know about Kansas: Thomas Robinson and Tyshawn Taylor are studs. And that’s coming from a person who hates the word “stud.” Seriously, listening to Jim Rome use it in every sentence makes me want to buy him a Dude Thesaurus.
What you need to know about Ohio State: Jared Sullinger. Seriously, that’s all you need to know. Watch him. Fixate on him.
Who should win: Kansas. I just think they’re more balanced, whatever that means.
Who will win: Ohio State. I feel like this will be the first buzzer beater game of the tournament. We’re being neglected. It will happen in the closing seconds of the last game before the NCAA Championship.
