Your Final Four is set: Bruins, Tigers, Gators, and Patriots. We've got three ferocious animals and a dead white guy who once did something historic that you'd know about if you paid attention in history class.

And if you had LSU, UCLA, George Mason, and Florida in your bracket, you either sold your soul to the devil, or you just filled it out a couple minutes ago. I refuse to believe otherwise.


Florida's big men had their way with Villanova, helping them punch their ticket to Indianapolis with a 75-62 win over the Wildcats. But I think the bigger factor was Villanova's poor shooting. They've beaten teams with good big men before. But they can't do it when they shoot under 25% from the floor, and 4-of-23 from behind the 3-point line. They didn't seem themselves today.

So we've got a little bit of everything in the Final Four, except, you know... anyone you expected to be here. We've got the media darlings in Glen Davis and Joakim Noah, the tradition and history of UCLA, and the biggest underdog story in college basketball history. Can't ask for much more than that. Not to go all Daily Quickie on you, but this has been the best tournament ever, and it can only get better.
