FLORIDA<br><br> "They're the most experienced, all five championship players are returning, they won it last year, they know what it's like, and they have a superb coach. And they all watch According to Jim' on Wednesday nights on ABC."

OHIO STATE<br><br>"I'm a Midwestern guy, and Ohio State is the one representing for us. Plus, Greg Oden is from Indianapolis, so I'm going to root for our homegrown talent."

UCLA<br><br>"I attended UCLA, so my heart is with the Bruins. Plus, I won a national championship in Atlanta, so I'm sending UCLA all of the positive energy that I took from there so that they can win a national championship there, too."

GEORGETOWN<br><br>"Georgetown came from 10 back and then literally kicked the wampum out of North Carolina. If they can create that kind of momentum, they will easily beat Ohio State, which could and should have lost three games on their road to the final cuatro. They'll probably play Florida, but it's the Hoyas at the finish. The father/son stuff is the juicy story."

FLORIDA<br><br>"Obviously, I'm picking my alma mater, the Florida Gators, in a romp. I know from experience in the Super Bowl that the team that has been there before and already has a ring on their finger is going to go in there with an advantage. The worst thing that can happen to them is that they've already been national champions. Florida is going to come out relaxed, they're going to play well, and they're going to win another championship."

UCLA<br><br>"If I had to pick a favorite, it would be UCLA. They have a great history and I really like their style of play and coach Ben Howland.

FLORIDA<br><br>"In a completely unbiased view, I pick Florida. Why? Coach Billy Donovan is a parrothead and that team didn't all come back for a year just so that they could hang out together at the Steak n Shake in Gainesville."

OHIO STATE<br><br>"Before the tournament, I picked Ohio State and Florida to make it to the Final Four, with the Buckeyes winning the championship. I'm not changing my prediction now."

FLORIDA<br><br>"I'm going with Florida over Ohio State. I've got to stick with the SEC as a Tennessee guy. I think Florida's experience will be too much for Ohio State's youth.

UCLA<br><br>"UCLA is gonna mop the floor with Florida, then let the floor gather dust for two days, and then mop it again with Ohio State. By the way, I went to UCLA."

GEORGETOWN<br><br>"It`s Georgetown all the way because in the end, they invited Mad Money to do the show there so the least I owe them is to be picked as winners. Oh yeah, they are hungrier and more in need of it than Florida. I lived in Tallahassee and have been a `Nole fan for life. So I would be doing a disservice to my friends by going with Gainesville for anything except changing a tire."

FLORIDA<br><br>"Experience is the key that will provide a second consecutive championship for the Gators. I had picked North Carolina to win it all before the tournament started."

UCLA<br><br>"Since John Thompson Sr. won a championship, it would be great to see his son win one as well. But I like UCLA, without a doubt...I do think they are the best team...not to mention I am from LA".
