Can Wichita State continue their Cinderella run against an inspired Cards team? [Final Four Live Thread]

Many people have slated Louisville as the winner of this tournament, but did anyone expect Wichita State to have come this far? It almost makes Gonzaga's loss to them easier to take. Almost. We all have our favorites, for whatever reason; whether it be gambling purposes, touching back-stories, university loyalty - any number of things. What's yours?

Everybody loves a Cinderella run, but Wichita State lost what darling status they had when Cardinals guard Kevin Ware suffered one of the most brutal injuries the sports world has ever seen, and was more worried about his team than he was about himself. Louisville was already the better team in this matchup, but unfortunately for Wichita State (and Kevin Ware's leg), now they're also playing inspired. 

My Pick: Cards

Does what they say in the NFL about defense winning championships apply here? If so, Syracuse has reason to be confident. Although, Michigan's style of play matches up nicely against a defense like the Orange. We should be in for an exciting game. 

My Pick: Wolverines

It always ends in a loss in Mid Majority nation. Sigh.

Just wow.  The Shockers should really be proud of their run.  They played hard today.

Cards look slow and full of themselves... maybe too much Letterman and Addidas...

0-4 from the field, 2 turnovers and 4 missed free throws before the first media timeout.  I didn't expect Louisville to be the tight and rattled team

Look for Louisville fans to honor Ware at 6:33 in the first half, the time his injury occurred.
