To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Oregon wasn't supposed to be here and few are giving them a shot against the overall number-one ranked Louisville Cardinals, but they have to play the game, right?

I personally felt good about the Ducks' chances in the first two games, sensing the team gelled during the Pac-12 tournament.

But Louisville is a different breed than OSU and St. Louis.  Louisville is one of the few programs that rounds up all the thoroughbreds out of the gate every year, particularly since Rick Pitino became head coach.

It isn't so much that Oregon's low seeding has finally cursed them, but rather being thrown into the toughest bracket in the tourney--the Midwest--inconveniently put them up against this traditional power too early.

I think Louisville beats Oregon, Michigan State beats Duke, and the winner of the Michigan State/Louisville elite eight game goes on to the championship game and the title.

That's the way I see it, and I haven't been wrong very often recently...
