Doug Gottlieb: The Least Cool Person Of 2011-12

Nantz voice on

There's nothing Funny about this Doug. Gottlieb is the least cool person in the world for 2012.

And for John Calipari, a feeling he knows all too well...HEARTBREAK...for a third straight year.

Nantz voice off

Despite what appeared to be some significant vote tampering to get John Calipari over the hump in his third straight championship round appearance, ESPN's Doug Gottlieb has been named Card Chronicle's 2011-12 least cool person in the world by the slimmest of margins. The final tally was 840-838, making it not only the tightest title match of all-time, but the slimmest margin of victory for any tournament tilt.

Thanks to all who participated in this most sacred of summer traditions.
