Lunardi's Logic

The Titans haven't been to the NCAAs since the heyday of Dickie V in Motown. Well, it's not quite that long, it just seems that way for Detroit fans whose luck may be changing (Prince Fielder, anyone?). Expect the Titans and the McCallum father-son combo to hang with Kansas for more than a half before fading.
