What will the final four look like? Some brave and loyal guesses.

WILL CAIN

New Mexico: The school that annually provides the Longhorns with an automatic non-conference football win deserves a happy moment. Plus, I have Wisconsin taking out Gonzaga and Iowa State taking out Ohio State . . . creating a clear path for the Lobos. Plus, plus . . . they’re called the Lobos, which is awesome.

Louisville: Went with the wisdom of the crowd on this one.

Kansas: Come on, it’s Kansas. VCU? Otto Porter? Come on.

Indiana: The Hoosiers cut down nets in March (after a loss!) when they won a share of the Big 10 title. You would think these kinds of low expectations would bode poorly for cutting down nets in April. But I’m feeling contrarian. Indiana is having fun. Fun is good.

Predictions: Louisville over New Mexico. Indiana over Kansas. Indiana over Louisville: Fun beats defense.
