And Another Thing

Associated Press

And in other prognostication news ...

And, because the Blob is and always has been a mascot-friendly zone ...

Here are the schools that would be in the Final Four if the Final Four was decided by sheer epic-ness of mascot:

1. Western Kentucky.

The No. 1 seed. I mean, come on, just look at this. Now try to tell me what it is, exactly.

2. St. Louis.

Speaking of unidentified costumed objects ... check this out.

What is it? I don't know. It's a Billiken. What else do you need to know?

3. St. Mary's.

This one gets in for the name alone: Gael Force One.

As to what it is, well, it's either a really steroidal Bruce Jenner or a really steroidal Deadhead. Your pick.

4. Butler.

Blue II not making the Final Four? As if.
