After months of behind-the-scenes bickering over how they would continue one of the best series in college basketball, Kentucky and Indiana have called it quits.

As you can probably imagine, growing up and living in North Dakota has its disadvantages. Things are a bit isolated up here. I could spend 10,000 words telling you about all the things we aren’t privy to yet (I have a friend who still doesn’t have text messaging).
But instead of you wondering if North Dakota is actually a real place, we are going to talk about college basketball.
I’m rooting for Kansas in tonight’s National Championship Game for a number of reasons that actually have to do with Kansas:
With both Final Four games now complete, the 2012 National Championship Game is set.

Here is a quick rundown of the viewing information for the title game.
Every year, some dummy makes the comment: “This great college team could beat this terrible NBA squad.”
Of course, I walk away from the conversation because clearly this person doesn’t know much about basketball. I don’t care how good a college team is, the level of play in the NBA is so superior that usually the idea is just laughable.
But this year, for the first time ever, when Charles Barkley wondered out loud if Kentucky could beat the Wizards, I stopped to think about it.
