Indiana coach Tom Crean appeared at the Final Four on Saturday and was photographed trying to talk on his cell phone. As always, the Internet responded in kind.
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.
We're all going to feel really bad when we find out Tom Crean was sent back in time to save humanity in some kind of Terminator scenario.— Big Ten Geek (@bigtengeek) April 4, 2015
@jasonrmcintyre VCU, I can be there by Tuesday morning!— David Hughes (@DaveHughes14) April 5, 2015
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.
