There was a lot of this against Xavier on Friday.  Baylor's task will be much tougher today against #1 overall seed Kentucky.

The road to New Orleans is almost there. Two more teams will earn Final Four berths today after the final two Elite Eight games are said and done. The two matchups today are almost as chalky as you can get.

South Regional Final - Atlanta, GA

(3) Baylor (30-7) vs. (1) Kentucky (35-2)

11:20 am PDT, CBS

Midwest Regional Final - St. Louis, MO

(2) Kansas (30-6) vs. (1) North Carolina (32-5)

2:05 pm PDT, CBS

These are two good games with some nice story lines. Baylor was a program in the doldrums just a few years ago: can they knock of the Goliath of all Goliaths in college basketball? And how about KU-UNC -- it's the battle of Roy Williams' coaching stops! I think of Ol' Roy as a Jayhawk about as much I think of him as a Tar Heel. But I digress.

Enjoy the games!
