So, it is now the Round of Four in the NCAA Men’s Tournament, 2013. I now have exactly one team of my Final Four selections even in the Final Four. I picked Louisville, Gonzaga, Maimi and Florida. Only Louisville made the Big Dance.
Remember I picked Louisville because of their superior guard play. Now, they have lost their best guard to a gruesome injury. The Cards had enough to steamroll Duke, regardless, but I did not have much regard for Duke, anyway.
So, can Louisville make it happen with their best guard in blue jeans?
I don’t know. As we get closer to the Big Game(s), I will announce my pick(s) but, for today, let me announce Rick’s Recommendations for Future Tournaments.
- Never pay any attention, not one scintilla of attention, to any of Rick’s Rules or Recommendations. You may as well pick your favorite mascot.
- When in doubt, refer to Recommendation 1 above.
- Go with guard play.
- Big men do not matter anymore.
- The three point shot changes all things.
