If you’re like me and doing your best to pretend tonight’s national championship doesn’t exist, let’s look ahead to next year, shall we? The 2018 National Championship will be held in San Antonio, Texas, and according to oddsmakers at the Westgate in Las Vegas, your University of Kentucky Wildcats are the current favorites at 10/1…alongside Duke and Louisville.
Of course, this is entirely premature, and I don’t recommend putting money down on a team that will be made up of 90% freshmen…but, next year will be the 20-year anniversary of the 1998 national championship, which also took place in San Antonio; that’s gotta be a good omen, right? Or, at least an excuse for me to share “One Shining Moment” from that season:
Never gets old.
