Okay, major men's college hoops kicks off this week, so of course it's time to start predicting the Final Four. Here are my picks: - Illinois I'm an alumni, and dammit this is the year. Too much talent, and I think Augustine's going to have a breakout year in the middle. - Duke Why? Because they're always there, almost. They've lost some key players, but as always have a good recruiting class coming in, so they'll be strong. Coach K know how to get them there. - Kentucky They're all ticked in bluegrass country about last year's second round loss to UAB. I think this year they'll pull together in the end. - Kansas As much as I hate Bill Self for ditching Illinois, he's done a great job so far at Kansas and will have them ready for another title run. I'd like to make the sentimental pick for Illinois to take home the crown, but I'm not sure it will happen. If they can avoid injuries this year, they'll be tough to beat, and they've got an fairly tough early schedule before getting into Big Ten action, which should prepare them for the tournament. What about the rest of you - any picks? Will your team go all the way this year?
