They don't call it March Madness for nothin'.

I still remember the day like it was yesterday. I was 12 years old, sitting alone at the kitchen table in my grandpa's house, watching the final seconds of the Duke/Kentucky game. Grant Hill heaved a cross-court pass to Christian Laettner, who, in the blink of an eye, turned and hit a jumper that would send Duke on to the Final Four and would remain burned in my memory until this very day.

As it turns out, things are just as mad now as they were then.

Today has to go down as one of the most exciting in the history of the NCAA Tournament. The Arizona/Illinois game, in particular, was one of the most exciting basketball games I have ever watched (and I've seen a few).

I'm already salivating at the thought of a Illinois/UNC title game, with the spoils going to, of course, the boys in Carolina blue.

I'm absolutely right with you, the games today were great and I can't wait for tomorrow's to see what the final match up is going to be. A Tarheel/Illini game would be great, but just as long as the Heels win it all!
