    Mark Few as coach of the year and Gonzaga in the Final Four? From a kid that owns a Derek Raivio jersey? Never would have guessed.

    Let’s just say I don’t buy Arizona State as much as you. James Harden can certainly carry that team, though.

    Mississippi State!

    And dude, just marry B.J. Mullens already.

    If Gonzaga made the Final Four Few would be coach of the year IMO, so that’s why I did that.

    And for the record, if Mullens popped the question, I’d consider…..
