All's Calm at Kansas and Memphis

Michigan State's annual Cedar Fest turned into a riot. :: AP
As Kansas and Memphis prepare for tonight's finale, we were somewhat surprised and impressed by the good behavior shown by both schools. At Kansas, the only wrongdoing appeared to be some students streaking while at Memphis, there was nary a peep. In fact, the worst we can say for Saturday night is that Derrick Rose ought to watch his language during postgame press conferences.
Not So at Michigan State
Neither Memphis nor Kansas fans rioted after Saturday's games, but students at Michigan State picked up the slack during its annual Cedar Fest held at the Cedar Village apartments. The State News has the full report with pics, video and first-hand accounts of the madness.
A Disturbing Matt Leinart Picture
The initial set of pics involving Matt Leinart, four girls and a beer funnel may have led to much more controversy than necessary, but we demand Mr. Leinart come forward and explain this puzzling shot of him and three dudes. Seriously. It's the most embarrassing athlete picture since this shot of Brady Quinn channeling The Village People.
Even the NBA Picks on Duke
How do you wake up a dead NBA crowd? Show images of Coach K and other Duke players while the opposing team is shooting free throws, of course.
SIOC's One Wish: A Competitive Title Game

We don't really have a preference as to who wins tonight's finale, but we're just hoping for a good game. Why? Because the last seven title games have ... to put it mildly ... sucked.
One Shining Moment Alternatives
Sometime around midnight tonight, after a national champion is crowned, CBS will show its annual tournament montage set to One Shining Moment. We're not suggesting they change the song, as it's a classic, but if they did, here are some alternatives.
