I can't stand North Carolina. But there is no way they're going to lose tonight.

This championship game is kind of like the Super Bowl. Not many people had Michigan State getting to this point and nearly everybody picked UNC.

Ty Lawson has been the key to North Carolina's march through the tourney. And I don't think that will change tonight, even with the Spartans playing incredible ball.

Take a look at what happened earlier in the season. North Carolina played MSU in Detroit and won 98-63. A 35-point victory!

That's definitely not going to change tonight, even if the Spartans are on a roll.

North Carolina 88, Michigan State 69.
