And then there were four. 

Michigan and Louisville secured massive wins on Sunday, joining Syracuse and Wichita State as the four representatives in college basketball's promised land.

It's a been a truly unpredictable season, and the surprising Final Four group is perfectly fitting. 

It may surprise you, but those on Twitter have had some opinions regarding the foursome heading to the Georgia Dome next week. 

 

Twitter Reaction

Let's start with Syracuse and Michigan. As CBS Sports' Gary Parrish pointed out, these weren't likely candidates for Atlanta a month ago:

But some of us (like USA Today's Nicole Auerbach) are certainly happy they made the successful turnaround:

As ESPN's Chad Ford noted, the guard matchup also serves as an enticing matchup:

If it comes down to the head coaches, Michigan might be in trouble. Boeheim has had quite the upper hand against the Wolverines head coach (via The Desert Sun's Andrew L. John):

No matter who wins, though, we're going to have a chance to witness something we haven't seen in 16 years (via ESPN Stats & Info):

(That was 16 years ago?!)

On the other side of the bracket, Wichita State is clearly the unanticipated Cinderella. ESPN Stats & Info puts on a number on how unanticipated the Shockers' run really was:

I'd be interested to know how many of those aren't alumni or didn't pick based on the awesomeness of each team's mascot.

But the Shockers get Louisville in the Final Four, and with the Cardinals tearing through the entire country right now, that could spell trouble for Gregg Marshall and company. Grantland's Shane Ryan broke down the matchup:

CBS Sports' Seth Davis agrees with Louisville being (very, very, very) far ahead of the pack right now:

Meanwhile, Yahoo! Sports' Andy Glockner is simply looking forward to a potential Big East swan song in the championship:

ESPN's J.A. Adande isn't nearly as excited:

That makes one of us. Is it Saturday yet?
