So, regardless of any pools you might be in, who's your team in the Final Four?

My brackets call for another UCLA championship, but I think of the four teams, I'd rather see the Hoyas win it all.

BTW--today's trivia: when was the last time the FF featured teams who've all won championships?

answer coming soon....

My two favorites are Gonzaga & Minnesota, so obviously those aren't options, but Florida is 3rd on my college basketball cheering list, so I have to go for them. I'd like Georgetown in the GU-OSU match-up.

trivia: I'm not sure if this was the last time all final four teams were former champs, but UNC, Kansas, Michigan and Kentucky were in it in '93 (the Webber timeout year- absolutely loaded season with the Fab 5, Kidd, Hill, Penny, Mashburn, JR Rider, Glen Robinson etc). Did Maryland win a championship before 2002? Because if so, 2001 had Duke, AZ, Maryland and I think Michigan St, who all won it before

Maryland did not win a championship before 2002. The Terps' first-ever Final Four appearance was in 2001 ... but Duke, Arizona and Michigan State had won previous NCAA championships, so that's 2 out of 3.

As long as we're feeling like trivia, what are the schools besides Oklahoma that have more Final Four appearances but have NEVER won the National Championship?

Yup, 1993.
