Final Four 2012 Predictions: SB Nation Bloggers Make Their Picks

SB Nation bloggers like Kentucky and freshman star Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to be the stars of this weekend's Final Four action in New Orleans.

With the final weekend of March Madness rapidly approaching, we asked SB Nation's elite group of college hoops bloggers for some expert predictions on what they think will take place at the Final Four in New Orleans.

Like the rest of the world, most believe Kentucky is going to be crowned national champion five days from now. All but six members of the panel took the Cats to cut down the nets on the first Monday in April. Three like Ohio State, two took Kansas, and just one brave soul - Sean Keeley of Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician - pegged the Louisville Cardinals to win it all.

Somewhat surprisingly, more SB Nation bloggers like Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (9) than potential national Player of the Year Anthony Davis (6) to bring home Final Four MVP honors.
