It's time to start filling out some 2012 NCAA Tournament brackets, and I'll pretty much just copy down Bill Connelly's Final Four predictions, since he's really smart at sports. From the South Region, Bill C. has the Kentucky Wildcats taking down the Baylor Bears in Atlanta, with the Duke Blue Devils and Wichita St. Shockers reaching the Elite Eight.

The last time UK came to the Georgia Dome was for the 2011 SEC Tournament, which they won. The Cats have always fared well in Atlanta thanks in part to being able to produce thousands of Kentucky sports fans out of nowhere. Kentucky's six SEC titles here in its history.
