Postcards from New Orleans - The Sites & Sounds of the 2012 Final Four

Friday, March 30 - 2:55 PM ET

Greetings from the BIG EAST in the Big Easy!  We just got done watching Louisville at its open practice.  Now Coach Pitino and select players are getting ready to speak to the media.  We'll be tweeting live now and all weekend long.  Join us for a behind-the-scenes look in New Orleans.

The masses are filing into the Mercedes Benz Superdome, and the early unofficial account is that Cats and Cards fans are the largest and loudest.  Early reports from brief visit from a BIG EAST staffer on Bourbon Street this afternoon indicate that tensions are highest among the fans from the Bluegrass State.  We've just gotten settled back in the media work room.  We're loving the warm weather, but also loving that it's air conditioned in here after the walk in.  Stay tuned to for live accounts behind the scenes and notes along the way.  Go Cards and go BIG EAST!

Louisville played a valiant game to say the least, but in the end it was too much of Anthony Davis and an extraordinarily talented Kentucky team that did in the Cardinals.  The post game press conferences are about to begin, and we're about to sign off.  All of us at the BIG EAST are proud of Louisville's effort here tonight.  G'night y'all.
