Everything comes down to this. It's the championship of chotch and all the quad-colored tank tops and tribal tattoos are on the line.

Let's do this, four letter network fools.

DIGGER PHELPS

HOW HE GOT HERE:

Defeated Munchie Legaux (1,695-145)
Defeated Mitch Barnhart (1,358-370)

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 heading into this year was just 1-3.

--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.

KIRK HERBSTREIT

HOW HE GOT HERE:

Defeated the Card Chronicle Basketball GIF of the Year Tournament (1,938-101)
Defeated Gordon Gee (1,526-622)

RAP SHEET:

--ESPN college football commentator

--Debut appearance in the LCPT.

--Spent the entire offseason talking about how Louisville needed to get into a "real conference" in order to be taken seriously (as if they hadn't been trying).

--Stated, among other things, before the Sugar Bowl: "Teddy Bridgewater, Joe Montana, Johnny Unitas, whoever you want to put back there, has no shot at beating Florida."

--Still refused to give Louisville any credit in the hours, days, weeks and months after the game, instead choosing to attribute the surprising result to Florida's indifference.

A new chumpion will be crowned on Friday at 11 a.m.
