Prior to the NCAA tournament, conventional wisdom held that Memphis and Kansas were the two #1 seeds least likely to make the Finals: the Tigers had attained its gaudy regular-season record via a weak schedule, and Jayhawks coach Bill Self had famously never reached the Final Four. After embarrassing the more-heralded #1 seeds in the Final Four, the two teams will play for the national title tonight on CBS (9:21 Eastern time).

I won't pretend to know enough about the teams to predict an outcome to the game, but if comparing attractive women from the Miss USA pageant is any indicator, it looks like tonight will be all Memphis — Miss Tennessee Rachel Smith went on to win the crown, while Miss Kansas Cara Gorges (real name) had to settle for looking hot in a bikini and being from Kansas.
