Saturday's first Final Four game between Michigan State and Duke brought college basketball fans yet another entry into one of March* Madness' greatest memes: Tom Crean Face.

The Internet, naturally, took a different angle.

Cold—Crean did land the Hoosiers a four-star center on Saturday in Huntington, W. Va., prospect Thomas Bryant. VCU, of course, is looking to replace head coach Shaka Smart, who turned down a reported $1 million raise from the Rams to instead coach Texas.

Oh, Duke won the actual basketball game, by the way.
