No April Fools' here: The podcast is ready for you, and we can't wait for you to listen to Jay Bilas go over the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight games that ... actually ... didn't offer up too much. If not for three factors -- Kevin Ware's injury, Wichita State making the Final Four and Michigan's big-time comeback against Kansas -- this would have been a really boring second weekend.

But there's still a lot to discuss, and we lead with the Ware injury before talking Louisville, Wichita State, Indiana, Syracuse, Marquette, Kansas, Florida and, of course, Michigan. We've got a five-day wait until the final games begin, so hopefully this helps with your hoops fix before the apex arrives.

Chatter:

  • From the beginning: Sort of a letdown of a second weekend, yes?
  • 2:40: The Ware injury. Here's the photo of his teammates that I was talking about.
  • 8:00: Louisville's dominance and why we think they'll stroll to a title. They're not as good as UK last year or those recent UNC teams, but this feels like it's been determined, right?
  • 12:00: Wichita State's run and why we should be more impressed. But probably not surprised, actually.
  • 18:00: Syracuse talk, including the way they shut down Indiana and why this team doesn't feel Final Four-good despite getting there.
  • 23:10: Michigan, of course, and we'll go over that Kansas comeback. Then look at why they're built for this bracket.
  • 30:10: Burke as the best player in the sport.
  • 31:30: Final Four picks.
