MCM Final Four Open Thread

The NCAA Final Four is set to tip-off here in a few minutes.  My bracket died last weekend as soon as VCU knocked off Kansas.  I am really never very good at filling out brackets, but this is the first time that I can remember not getting a single final four team right.  Of course that will happen when you just pick all of the #1 seeds to make the final four and none of them actually do.  

With all of that being said, here are my predictions for tonight:

I think Butler wins the first game.  VCU has been an incredible story, and there is part of me that thinks they have enough magic left to win this game, but I am going with Butler because of their experience from last season.  They have seen this stage before and will be more composed in a close game.

I have no idea what to think about the second game, but I sure hope UCONN wins because Kentucky basketball fans are the worst fans of any sport anywhere.  I know as an SEC guy I am supposed to cheer for the SEC, but I just can't do it when it comes to Kentucky basketball.  So obviously I am going to pick UK to win the game hoping that jinxes them.
