Five quick thoughts from New Orleans

Here are five quick thoughts on my time and/or experiences in New Orleans for the Final Four so far:
1. Man it's hot! I'm talking high 80-degree temperatures. I know it's been unseasonably warm back at home, but this is even worse.
2. Best T-shirt I've seen on Bourbon Street: "Free Sean Payton."
3. Tough loss last night for Louisville, but with the Cards returning core I wouldn't be surprised to see them in Atlanta next year.
4. Wow did Ohio State blow its game against Kansas! And Aaron Craft's lane violation in the final seconds, what was he thinking?!
5. Finals prediction: Kentucky 75, Kansas 72.
