The NCAA tournament brackets were revealed Sunday, and we're guessing your brain is probably mush after listening to roughly 60 consecutive hours of analysis on sleepers, upset picks and the case for why this is finally the year Gonzaga will make the Final Four.
Rather than giving you more analysis, we figured it might be time to do the opposite: provide a fun and different look at the tournament by listing every school's most famous alum.
Admittedly, we used the term "alum" pretty loosely - not everyone on this list actually graduated from the school with which they're listed. But they did attend.
Villanova: Bradley Cooper (actor)
"The Hangover" star briefly attended Villanova before transferring to Georgetown to finish his undergraduate degree. Two years later, he made his acting debut on an episode of "Sex and the City."
Mount Saint Mary's: Fred "Mad Dog" Carter (former NBA player)
While there aren't many prominent alums from Mount St. Mary's, the role that Carter played - an 10-year NBA vet - can't be understated.
New Orleans: Ellen DeGeneres (comic, actress, talk show host)
Ellen briefly attended New Orleans, where she majored in communications but dropped out after one semester.

Wisconsin: Dick Cheney (former Vice President of the United States)
Cheney attended University of Wyoming for undergrad before starting - but not finishing - a doctoral degree at Wisconsin. That didn't stop him from having a distinguished political career, which included serving as George W. Bush's right-hand man from 2001-2009.
Virginia Tech: Michael Vick (former NFL quarterback)
While Virginia Tech's alumni base is wide-ranging – spanning from Dell Curry (Steph's dad) to Roger Craig (one of the most successful Jeopardy champions of all-time) – the easy answer here is Vick. He led the Hokies' football team to its only national championship game appearance back in 1999 before making four Pro Bowls in the NFL.

Virginia: Tina Fey (actress)
Before she was the star of "Saturday Night Live," "30 Rock" and "Mean Girls," Fey attended UVA, where she graduated with a BA in drama in 1992.
UNC-Wilmington: John Calipari (Hall of Fame basketball coach)
Coach Cal has become an icon at Kentucky, but he got his start at UNC-Wilmington. He played two years for the Seahawks before transferring and finishing at Division II Clarion.
Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY SportsJamie Rhodes
Florida: Tim Tebow (former football player, baseball player)
Long before he was the most famous backup outfielder in minor-league history, Tebow attended the University of Florida where - I know this is going to sound crazy - he played on the school's football team. He helped the Gators win two national championships and took home the 2007 Heisman Trophy.

East Tennessee State: Kenny Chesney (country music star)
The country music icon studied advertising at ETSU while also performing music on the side. Some 25 years and 20 albums later, it seems like musc was the right choice.
However, the most famous alum is probably John Thompson, who strolled the sidelines for PC's Big East rival Georgetown from 1972 to 1999, capturing the 1984 national championship.
USC: Will Ferrell (actor)
Picking a most notable alumn of USC is a lot like picking your least favorite Duke player: There are almost too many good options.
So with all due respect to George Lucas, John Wayne (who also played football) and "The Big Unit" Randy Johnson, we'll go with Ferrell. He is a pop culture icon, the star of "Old School," "Anchorman" and "Wedding Crashers," and coined the phrases "Ma, the meatloaf!" and "The milk's gone bad!"
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportDerick E. Hingle
New Mexico State: Lou Henson (former basketball coach)
With all due respect to the fine folks in Las Cruces, New Mexico State's list of famous alumni is a bit short on fame.
So we'll roll with Henson, who played and coached at New Mexico State, leading the school to its only Final Four in 1970. He then moved onto Illinois, where he went to another Final Four in 1989.

Baylor: Robert Griffin III (NFL football player)
At one point, the choice probably would have been Olympic sprinter Michael Johnson, but it is now Robert Griffin II.
RGIII won the school's only Heisman Trophy in 2011 – the same year he led the Bears to their second 10-win season in school history.

South Carolina: Darius Rucker (singer)
Not only did Rucker attend South Carolina,he met all the Blowfish while in school in Columbia. Sometimes, truth really is stranger than fiction.
Marquette: Chris Farley (actor)
While the obvious choice here would have been Dwyane Wade, we'll give a nod to the late comedian, who starred in "Tommy Boy" and "Black Sheep." And unlike his iconic character Tommy Callahan, it didn't even take him seven years to graduate.
Duke: Richard Nixon (former United States President)
As with many schools on this list, there are a number of people who could have been selected. Current and former NBA stars Kyrie Irving or Grant Hill. Apple CEO Tim Cook.
But we went with the 37th President of the United States, who became one of the first students to enroll in Duke's law school when it opened in 1934.
Troy: DeMarcus Ware (retired NFL star)
Ware, who retired this week, was a Trojan long before he was a star with the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos. He was a two-time All-Sun Belt performer at Troy, taking home Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2004.
Gonzaga: John Stockton (Basketball Hall of Famer)
Stockton is both an NBA and Zags icon, as the man who led the Utah Jazz to two NBA Finals and made "short shorts" a widely-discussed fashion trend. The 1984 WCC Player of the Year and 10-time NBA All-Star, Stockton was voted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009.

South Dakota State: Adam Vinatieri (NFL kicker, four-time Super Bowl champion)
As much as I wanted to plug in noted NASA test pilot Roger Zwieg here, the answer is Vinatieri. Prior to winning four Super Bowls with the Patriots and Colts, he was a South Dakota State Jackrabbit, leaving as the school's all-time leader in total points with 185.

Northwestern: Julia Louis-Dreyfus
The most notable Northwestern alum slot was highly contested with both Stephen Colbert and David Schwimmer (who were actually classmates) battling for the honor. Ultimately, we went with Louis-Dreyfus, who not only attended the school, but has a son on this year's team.
Vanderbilt: Al Gore (former Vice President of the United States)
Although he didn't invent the internet (despite popular belief), Gore did attend Vanderbilt law school before serving as U.S. Vice President from 1993-2001.
Notre Dame: Regis Philbin (TV personality)
The former "Live with Regis and Kelly" host is not only a Notre Dame grad, but an admitted homer for the school's athletic teams. He graduated from the school in 1953 with a degree in sociology.
Princeton: Michelle Obama (former First Lady of the United States)
As you can imagine, the list of notable Princeton alums is distinguised with everyone from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to David Duchovny (who didn't love "The X Files"?) attending the school.
However, the obvious answer here is Obama, who graduated in 1985 before going to Harvard to get her law degree.

West Virginia: Jerry West (Basketball Hall of Famer)
"Zeke from Cabin Creek" isn't just the most notable alum of West Virginia, but arguably the most notable citizen in the state's history. In addition to one NBA title as a player and seven more as an executive, West led the Mountaineers to the 1959 Final Four.
Bucknell: Jay Wright (Villanova basketball coach)
Every fiber of my being wanted to list Greg Schiano here (if only for the MRSA reference), but I had to go with Wright. Long before he led Villanova to the 2016 national championship, he was a player at Bucknell.
Maryland: Larry David (actor)
The logical choice here would be Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank, but have you seen "Curb Your Enthusiasm"? It's a slice of Americana and it'd be a crime to leave David – who graduated from the school with a B.A. in History – off this list.
Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY SportAnthony Gruppuso
Xavier: Frank Robinson (MLB Hall of Famer)
Maybe my favorite random story on this list is Robinson, who actually attended Xavier while playing Major League Baseball for the cross-city Cincinnati Reds.
Florida State: Burt Reynolds (actor)
Not only did Reynolds attend Florida State, but actually played for the football team. One of his closest friends? Current "College Gameday" host Lee Corso.
Florida Gulf Coast: Chris Sale (MLB All-Star pitcher)
One of the joys of Florida Gulf's 2013 Sweet 16 run was that the school had such little history – it opened in 1991 – that it's most famous alum was a female monster truck driver. As time has passed, Courtney Jolly's name has been erased from the history books. Five-time MLB All-Star Chris Sale is now FGCU's most famous alum after attending the school from 2008 to 2010.
Jasen VinloveJasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports
Saint Mary's: Matthew Dellavedova (NBA basketball player)
The surge by Saint Mary's into college basketball's upper tier over the past decade has not only produced a lot of wins, but also arguably its two most famous alums. In addition to the Spurs' Patty Mills, there is Dellavedova, who won a title with LeBron James in Cleveland last year before signing a big contract with Milwaukee in the offseason.
VCU: Hunter "Patch" Adams (famed doctor)
This is filed in the "stuff that's too crazy to be made up" category. The famed doctor's life's work was made into a 1998 movie starring Robin Williams.
Arizona: Kourtney Kardashian (famous for ??)
I consider myself a bit of a Kardashian connoisseur, but I had no idea about this one.
But Kourtney Kardashian is representing Wildcat nation loud and proud. She majored in theatre arts at the school and minored in Spanish, while becoming close friends with Nicole Richie.
North Dakota: Phil Jackson (11-time NBA champion coach, current Knicks executive)
The Zen Master's zen-like ways began in Bismarck, where he led North Dakota to the DII Final Four twice. The team they lost to? Southern Illinois, led by his future Knicks' teammate Walt "Clyde" Frazier.

Kansas: Wilt Chamberlain (Basketball Hall of Famer)
KU gave us no shortage of good options, including actor Paul Rudd, NFL star Aqib Talib, the Clippers' Paul Pierce and broadcaster Kevin Harlan.
However, the pick here is Chamberlain, the man of 100 points and 20,000 girlfriends. Wilt played at the school from 1956-58 and led the Jayhawks to the 1957 title game.
North Carolina Central: Herman Boone (famed high school football coach)
Long before Denzel Washington portrayed Boone in "Remember the Titans," the real Boone attended NC Central and graduated in 1958. He began his coaching career three years later abd took over the T.C. Williams job in 1971. He still lives in Alexandria, Va.
UC-Davis: Chris Petersen (Washington head football coach)
This was a battle to the end between Petersen and UFC fighter Urijah Faber, but we gave the edge to the former Boise State and current Washington head coach. Petersen played at UC-Davis during the 1985 and '86 seasons before beginning his coaching career there the following fall.

Miami (FL): Dwayne Johnson (actor/wrestler/football player/motivation speaker)
Long before he was "The Rock," Johnson was a football player at the University of Miami.
He was part of the school's national title team in 1991 before an injury forced him to the sideline and he was replaced by Warren Sapp. Johnson never regained his starting spot, but it seems he's recovered nicey.
Michigan State: Earvin "Magic" Johnson
This one feels like a no-braine, as Johnson attended the school for two years and led the Spartans to the 1979 national championship. He went on to win five NBA titles and three MVP Awards as a member of the Lakers.
Iowa State: Dan Gable (legendary wrestler, wrestling coach)
Kaepernick played at Nevada from 2007-2010, leaving as not only the most decorated football player in school history, but one of the most decorated QBs in NCAA history. When he graduated, Kapernick was the only quarterback in FBS history to throw for over 10,000 yards and rush for 4,000 in his career.
Neville E. GuardNeville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports
Purdue: Neil Armstrong (astronaut)
There were plenty of worthy candidates here (John Wooden, Drew Brees), but when you have a chance to put the first man to walk on the moon on a list like this, you do it. Every time.
Vermont: Ben Affleck (actor)
Affleck followed a girlfriend to Vermont and briefly attended classes there – but never earned any college credits. Instead, he left and moved to Los Angeles, where he co-wrote and starred in "Good Will Hunting" with childhood friend Matt Damon.
Creighton: Bob Gibson (Baseball Hall of Famer)
Gibson played both basketball and baseball at Creighton and was offered a contract with the Harlem Globetrotters upon graduation. He stuck with baseball and it seems like the right decision; he was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1981.

Rhode Island: Lamar Odom (former NBA star)
Odom helped the Lakers to back-to-back NBA titles in 2009 and 2010, but in Rhode Island is best known for what he did a decade earlier.
Odom spent two years at the school, but played only during the 1998-99 season. He led the Rams to the NCAA Tournament, the Rams' most recent appearance prior to this season.

Oregon: Phil Knight (founder of Nike)
Knight was a member of the Oregon (then known as the "Webfoots") track team, before graduating and eventually co-founding Nike with his former coach Bill Bowerman. Since then, Knight has become a cultural icon and a confidant for some of the biggest names in sports, and he has a reported net worth of over $26 billion.
Iona: Don McLean (singer/songwriter)
Admittedly, it was pretty slim pickings at Iona, where our other best options included noted fiddler Eileen Ivers and former New York senator John Bonacic. Instead we'll go with McLean, the man who wrote and sang the song "American Pie."
Michigan: Tom Brady (Five-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback)
The future Hall of Famer – and editor of the "Tom Brady Times" – once struggled to see the field in Ann Arbor, backing up uber-recruit Drew Henson. However, he eventually won the job and then did the same in New England.
Oklahoma State: Garth Brooks (country music singer)
Brooks never played basketball at Oklahoma State but was a respected athlete, arriving at the school on a track scholarship. He graduated from OSU in 1984 and began his musical career just one year later.
Louisville: Diane Sawyer (news anchor)
Sawyer was born in Glasgow, Kentucky, and raised in Louisville, but actually did her undergrad at Wellesley College in Massachusetts. She attended Louisville for law school before dropping out to pursue a career in journalism.
Jacksonville State: Danny Willett (pro golfer, 2016 Masters champion)
The first team to clinch an NCAA Tourney bid also has one of the most surprising most prominent alums. Willett was born in England, learned the game in a sheep pasture and attended JSU for two years before turning pro.

North Carolina: Michael Jordan (Basketball Hall of Famer)
He's the GOAT and the man who created the iconic term "The Ceiling is the Roof." Nothing else needs to be said here. This list wouldn't be complete without M.J.
Getty ImagesRonald Martinez
Texas Southern: Michael Strahan (former NFL star, TV broadcaster)
The "Good Morning America" and "FOX NFL Sunday" star has a pretty crazy story, as he was living overseas on a military base before his father sent him to Houston for his senior year of high school. Once there, he caught the attention of Texas Southern's staff and ended up as an All-SWAC performer at the school.
Seton Hall: Dick Vitale (legendary college basketball broadcaster)
Every ounce of me wanted to put Mo Vaughn in here (sorry, not famous enough), and New Jersey governor Chris Christie is another candidate.
However, we'll go with the broadcasting icon Vitale, who graduated from the school with a B.S. in Business Administration.
Arkansas: Jerry Jones (Dallas Cowboys owner, Pro Football Hall of Famer)
Long before he was the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jones was a football player at the University of Arkansas. He was actually a key member and co-captain of the Hogs' 1964 national championship team.
Butler: Gordon Hayward (NBA basketball player)
Not a ton to work with here, so we'll go with Hayward. The first big star of the modern era for Butler, he nearly led the Bulldogs to the 2010 NCAA title before becoming an NBA All-Star with the Utah Jazz.
Winthrop: Andie MacDowell (actress)
MacDowell attended Winthrop for two years before she was discovered by a modeling agency. Since then she has gone on to both a succesful modeling and acting career, which included a co-starring role in "Groundhog Day."
Minnesota: Bob Dylan (singer)
Dylan actually began his singing career at Minnesota, performing in a small coffee house on campus. He dropped out a short time later and decided to pursue music, where he's since won 11 Grammy Awards.
Middle Tennessee State: Kelly Holcomb (former NFL quarterback)
Our best bet is Holcomb, who threw for 39 touchdowns during a career that included stops with the Browns, Bills, Colts and Vikings.
Cincinnati: Sandy Koufax (Baseball Hall of Famer)
Cincinnati has a deceptively good athletic history, ranging from Oscar Robertson (who was a three-time consensus All-American at the school) and Urban Meyer, who actually played baseball (not football) as a Bearcat.
We'll go with Koufax, who actually arrived at Cincinnati as a basketball player before turning his full attention to baseball. Once he did, he became a legend, eventually winning three Cy Young Awards and an MVP Award while helping the Dodgers capture four World Series titles.
Kansas State: Eric Stonestreet (actor)
It was a toss-up here between Kirstie Alley (who didn't love "Veronica's Closet"?) and Stonestreet. Considering that I'm not sure if Allie has acted in the past decade, I went with Stonestreet, a co-star on "Modern Family."
Wake Forest: Arnold Palmer (Hall of Fame golfer)
The obvious contemporary choices here would be Tim Duncan or Chris Paul, but how many drinks have been named after those guys? Instead, we'll go with Palmer, the legendary golfer – and drink inventor – who passed away late last year.
UCLA: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (Basketball Hall of Famer)
Every ounce of me wanted to slide Ben Stiller (founder of The Derek Zoolander School for Kids Who Can't Read Good) here, but the only appropriate name is Abdul-Jabbar.
Known as Lew Alcindor when he attended UCLA, he led the Bruins to three national championships (remember, freshmen were ineligible then) before leading the Bucks and Lakers to a combined six NBA titles.
FilmMagicJames Lemke Jr
Kent State: Nick Saban (Alabama football coach)
OK, so the choice could be Drew Carey, who actually was expelled from the school in the late 1970s.
However, I'm going with Saban – if only because I'm terrified he'll give me an (expletive)-chewing if I don't.
Dayton: Jon Gruden (Super Bowl-winning coach, TV personality)
"Big Show" (known as Paul Wight at the time) not only attended Wichita State, but actually played on the Shockers' basketball team for two seasons. He then left, changed his name and broke into wrestling, where he has gone on to become a seven-time world champion.
Marc PfitzenreuterGetty Images
Northern Kentucky: George Clooney (actor)
Long before Clooney was a dreamy Hollywood star, he attended Northern Kentucky for two years, where he studied broadcast journalism. He then transferred to Cincinnati before starting an award-winning movie career.
Despite all of his big-screen success, Clooney will always be a Norse to those who know him best.
Kentucky: Ashley Judd (actress)
Not only is Judd UK's most famous fan, she's also its most famous alum. Judd attended the school, where she majored in French and minored in anthropology, art history, theatre and and women’s studies.
