Best Sweet 16 matchups

This is the calm before the storm, a chance to unpack and repack, pay some bills and reintroduce myself to my wife. But before I leave for St. Louis tomorrow night, I'm looking at which team fits the profile of last year's Florida squad. When you consider the course of the season, the similarities between 2006 Gators and one team this year is just uncanny. I'll save that for tomorrow's paper. We won't have another George Mason this year, but we might have another Florida.

Here are the round of 16 games I'm most looking forward to, in rank order:

Kansas-Southern Illinois
Florida-Butler
Pitt-UCLA
Texas A&M-Memphis
North Carolina-USC
OSU-Tennessee
Georgetown-Vanderbilt
UNLV-Oregon

Here is my ranking of the final 16 teams:
Kansas
Florida
UCLA
Georgetown
Texas A&M
North Carolina
Ohio State
Pittsburgh
Southern Illinois
Oregon
USC
Memphis
Tennessee
Vanderbilt
UNLV
Butler
