Well, one fun fact I didn't know: I was amazed to see that the double T was the first technical in a final since all the way back to Chris Webber's infamous timeout! Wow. Speaking of, are the "Fab Four" in attendance together again like they were in 2013- without Webber?

Bridges doing his best to keep Michigan breathing. Awful shot selection, followed a few minutes later by an awful pass. But as quickly, DiVincenzo takes over again. Okay now I'm out. I can't take one more time of listening to that obnoxious song on that tiresome Samsung Galaxy S9 ad that's been played this whole tournament.

Jalen Rose has that new show with Greeny on ESPN called Get Up!, so I don't think he flew to San Antonio and would be back in time for the show tomorrow at 7AM. I was at that Final Four in 2013 in the Georgia Dome and they sat just below where I was. Weber was there (in a private suite), but didn't sit with the other 4.

I think a David vs Goliath matchup for the title would’ve pulled in WAY more casual fans...especially with the networks given a few days to hype the storylines. A once in a lifetime ordeal. As far as any possible matchup, Duke/UNC would obviously kill in ratings (or Kentucky/Duke).

If Villanova only played a wee bit better in '14, '15 and '17, I wonder how many more Final Fours and National Titles they could of had, to go with their 2 in 3 years!

So, does Jay Wright replace Coach K when he retires? Does he replace Roy Williams when he retires? Does he replace Calipari when he gets fired, I mean when he's forced out?

Congrats to Villanova. You could tell Michigan didn't want this bad enough, their body language said they gave up by the half. But I suppose that could be any team against one as powerful as Villanova.

An anticlimactic and boring ending to what was an amazing tourney run.

The women's game, on the other hand, was pretty amazing.

Nothing boring about excellence.

Props to Nova, big-time.
