BracketRacket: Steve Kerr, Superman and Wheatlanta
SUPERMAN’S A SUPER FAN
So when it comes to the NCAA tournament, it’s no surprise the man who’s best known for playing Superman is a super fan.
“I’ll go into a pool with anyone, literally. Anything I can do,” Cain told AP Entertainment Producer Nicole Evatt. “I wanted to go to Vegas with my buddies. I couldn’t go, they went. … (looking into the camera) I’m not going to forgive you guys. They all went and had a great time.”
As for Cain’s picks, he’s from Michigan and is pulling for the Wolverines, but he lost out on getting two Final Four teams when Louisville beat Duke.
He’s also a big fan of the little guys.
“I love watching the underdogs,” Cain said. “I love watching teams match up that have never matched up before.”
This year’s Final Four has some familiar teams in it with former national champions Louisville, Michigan and Syracuse all getting through to Atlanta.
There will be something missing, too.
For the first time since 1985, the Final Four will be missing the six teams with the most national championships: UCLA, Kentucky, Indiana, North Carolina, Duke and Kansas.
The six power schools, which have combined for 36 national championships, have been regulars in the national semifinals, with three of the teams making it in the same year three times and two schools getting in eight other times in the past 28 years, including Kentucky and Kansas last season.
The 1985 Final Four _ the last without the six power schools _ included Villanova, Georgetown, Memphis State and St. John’s.
