It's just like the actual Final Four, except instead of Tim Henderson hitting back-to-back threes, these guys are tools.

DIGGER PHELPS

HOW HE GOT HERE:

Defeated Munchie Legaux (1,695-145)

RAP SHEET:

--Making his fourth career Least Cool Person Tournament appearance, which puts him at No. 1 on the all-time list.

--Despite his numerous appearances, Phelps' career LCPT record is just 2-3.

--Picked against Louisville in every Big East Tournament and NCAA Tournament game right up until the Final Four.

--Got extremely defensive after Rick Pitino took a light-hearted (but completely deserved) shot at his ability to do his job.

--Was the lone member of the national media to predict that Louisville would lose before the Elite Eight.

VS.

MITCH BARNHART

HOW HE GOT HERE:

Defeated Kim Mulkey (1,032-823)

RAP SHEET:

--Kentucky athletic director.

--Third overall appearance in the Least Cool Person Tournament, where he was the champion in 2007-08.

--Repeatedly referred to Louisville's sports year as "nice," and implied that UK was the superior program because of the strength of its minor sports.

--Once famously claimed that "we will own this state."
