Big Easy's history of Final Four thrillers has CBS broadcast crew anticipating a memorable weekend | -- Jim Nantz on New Orleans: "This is one of the better all-time, quartets we have ever had. In 1993 in New Orleans we had Michigan and North Carolina, Kentucky and Kansas, and it was similar to the same kind of vibe I'm feeling right now. And I'll say this: Everybody wants to say this is going to be a coronation of Kentucky. The odds are it will be. "But I've been around enough championship games ... we were saying the same thing before North Carolina State and Houston [in 1983], the same thing before Villanova and Georgetown [in 1985]. We were saying the same thing before, you name it, Arizona and Kentucky in 1997. There is no foregone conclusion until Monday night. "We've been here four times, and all four times have come down to some kind of memorable, last-second highlight. Hopefully we'll have that again."
