The Peril of the NCAA Tournament

It is down to the final four teams for the national collegiate men's basketball tournament.

Sixty-one teams have already gone home disappointed. Three more will experience that fate. You can call it a high risk, high reward kind of tournament.

That is the beautiful of the tournament. Teams do lose on last-second shots. Teams do lose by one meager point. Top seeds do have a bad game and go home. Underdogs do stage upsets, but then in the next round go home too.

The losers are quickly forgotten. The focus is on the winners. However, come Monday night that focus will center on only one team--the national champion.

March is to weed out the participants. April is for those still standing. They are the heavyweights of the 2009-10 season.

But who will the lone heavyweight be come Monday night. Are you picking Butler, Michigan State, Duke or West Virginia?

Let the fights begin.
