Hess-400x300_medium

HOW HE GOT HERE:

Defeated Jae Crowder 1,020-208 (84%-16%) in the first round

RAP SHEET:

--Continued to improve upon his reputation as being one of the worst officials in college basketball.

--Ego was on full display when he ejected NC State legends Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani during a game in February.

--Refused to work ACC Tournament because he was angry about the criticism he received after said ejection.

--Was the only official to whistle Rick Pitino for a technical foul this season and did so twice, the second time coming at a crucial point in the Elite Eight game against Florida. In both instances Pitino claimed he was yelling at one of his own players when he was hit with the T.

VS.

Joe Manchin

HOW HE GOT HERE:

Defeated Whistle Guy 980-513 (65%-35%) in the first round.

RAP SHEET:

--West Virginia senator.

--Engaged in a public war of words with Kentucky senator Mitch McConnell as Louisville and West Virginia battled for a spot in the Big 12.

--Stated: "Louisville doesn't have the record. They don't have the standings or the merit that West Virginia has. You know what, Louisville? Go back and toughen up a little bit. Get better. And maybe you'll be part of the Big 12 later on."

You have until Saturday morning at 11 to vote one of these tools into the Final Four.
