POLL: Who Wins This Year’s Final Four?

The Final Four is set for 2012. Who do you think will be bringing home the trophy?

Louisville and Ohio State punched their tickets on Saturday night and Kentucky and Kansas joined them later in the weekend. All four teams will play in New Orleans on Saturday night with the National Championship set for Monday night.

The battle for the commonwealth of Kentucky is first up as the Wildcats and Cardinals will tip off at 6:09 p.m. on CBS. Vacated or not John Calipari and Rick Pitino are the only two coaches to ever take three different schools to the final four. Pitino did it with Providence, Kentucky and Louisville, while Calipari has done it with UMass, Memphis and Kentucky. Pitino won a national championship in 1996 while at Kentucky and Calapari has never won the big one, but has had his first two final fours at UMass and Memphis vacated.

Ohio State and Kansas will tip off at 8:49 p.m. on Bourbon Street on CBS. Both teams come in with 31 wins, and Kansas and Head Coach Bill Self are looking for their first title since 2008 when they beat Calapari’s Memphis team in overtime. Thad Matta is making his second trip to the final four with OSU and he is still looking for his first title.

Currently Kentucky and Ohio State are both the favorites coming into the action but we want to know: Who do you think has the best chance to cut down the nets in New Orleans?

Kentucky is too fast and athletic for any team to handle. As long as Davis can stay relatively healthy they should be able to win this.

I think UNC, with a healthy Marshall, is the only team that could've challenged Kentucky. The Wildcats could have as many as six players drafted to the NBA in the upcoming draft. That's amazing!

If Kentucky is at full strength then they are virtually unbeatable.
