The 2011 NCAA Championship game is finally here and it's time to make last minute predictions and analysis.

By now you know the No. 8 seeded Butler Bulldogs have reached the title game for the second-year in a row.

Head coach Brad Stevens has made it look easy as the Bulldogs continue to grind-out wins. The five wins in the tournament have come by a combined 21 points.

The cardiac dogs will face off against another sort of dog—a Huskie.

The three-seeded UConn Huskies have ripped off win after win since the postseason began. They won five games in a row to win the Big East Tournament and have now ripped off another five "Ws" to reach the championship.

So who has the edge?

Does the experience of UConn coach Jim Calhoun matter? The guy is double the age of Stevens for Pete's sake.

Or does Butler's championship experience of last year carry over to tonight?

We'll have full breakdowns of both sides in addition to who to keep an eye on while your watching.

And of course, I'll have my championship pick.

It's "One Shining Moment" time baaaaby!
