Big news in sports this weekend: Formula 1 returned to action in Australia.
Oh, right, and it was Selection Sunday—kicking off a month of madness for college basketball players, fans and that one guy in your office who organizes the bracket pool every year (from whom you just received another email). Which means you need to get up to speed, quickly, which is where we come in.
And now, the thrilling conclusion to our March Madness bracket. (Which began here with the Sweet 16.)
(1) John Wooden’s Glasses vs. (3) Roy Williams’s Carolina Blue: It’s come down to this. Pete Carril, our Ivy League Cinderella, had an epic Final Four–achieving run, but his professorial dishevelment ultimately came up short against John Wooden’s prolific eyewear. Bob Knight’s red sweaters were running on fumes after the dogfight against Carnesecca’s Cosby sweaters in the Elite Eight, so Roy Williams’s pinstripes basically cruised into the finals. And now only one thing stands between our two title contenders: which one can cut down the net most stylishly. [Cue the confetti and streamers.]
We’ve been counting down to tomorrow’s official start of the Big Dance with our own March Madness bracket, wherein we’ve pitted the most iconic college basketball coaches against one another—in terms of their signature style items—in an attempt to finally nail down who’s the most stylish of them all.
And here we are. The Final Four.
This is when champions show their true grit. If you’re planning on watching any of the action this weekend, you’re going to hear one word thrown around a lot: résumé. It’s become the catch-all term for reviewing a team’s performance over the season, and it seems like the right term to use when reviewing the overall style career of these coaches. So now that we’ve made it to the semifinals, we’re going to scrutinize each coach’s personal style résumé even further.
Welcome back to Kempt’s March Madness bracket, wherein we pit the most iconic college basketball coaches against one another in an attempt to finally nail down who’s the most stylish of them all.
Yesterday we kicked things off with the Sweet 16 of all-time style greats. In case you missed it, we encourage you to read up on the matchups, but we’ll quickly remind you that this is a tournament of iconography—sure, there are plenty of coaches out there who know their way around a tailored suit, but this rarefied bunch has gone beyond that with a courtside style so legendary, you can name the exact items they’re famous for wearing.
But while you were celebrating the spring air, we were keeping tabs on the newly named Final Four, a missing $200 million and the first gubernatorial candidate to come out of a reality show. (It's not Trump.) Here's what you may have missed...
A lot happened over the weekend—and not just the near-fatal damage to your March Madness bracket. We’re thinking of St. Patrick’s Day chaos in Canada, a new German president and, perhaps most importantly, the world’s first official case of death by pinto bean.
