It will be nice to get back to basketball for a bit

The Final Four cannot start soon enough.

After a week of talking about coaching abuse, failed drug tests, cheating and bounties in the world of college sports, I am ready for some Peyton Siva, Trey Burke, zone defense and the Shockers!

When Louisville and Wichita State tip off Saturday we can finally, even for a few brief hours, turn our attention away from the negatives of college sports and focus on what we really care about most -- the games.

We can all debate whether Ed Rush should have been fired, Auburn should be stripped of its National Championship or if the coach, athletic director and president at Rutgers should all be gone. And to a certain extent, we do care about those topics and yes, we enjoy controversy. But we can't watch those issues outside of a minute video of Mike Rice throwing basketballs at his players.

So let the games begin so we can allow sports to do what they are supposed to do, entertain us
