It’s the Final Four but I focus on UK football.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Midwest Regional Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Big Blue Nation!

Try not to be too bummed today. It’s Final Four time and the Kentucky Wildcats aren’t playing. Oh well. Life goes on. Instead of being sad, maybe choose a team to cheer for today and hopefully Monday.

I’m cheering for the Auburn Tigers. They’re SEC compadres and they are riding one of the hottest waves in the country right now. I can’t stand anything ACC, so I need the Virginia Cavaliers to lose today.

If not, the deification of of Tony Bennett and the “right way” will continue. My stomach can’t handle it, folks.

So here’s to Bryce Brown hitting 10 threes and Jared Harper driving past Ty Jerome like he’s not even there.
