The Final Four is one of the biggest sporting events of the year. It’s so big, in fact, that the NCAA mandates that it takes place at a stadium with a seating capacity of 70,000. Yes, that means that the Final Four can never be held at the Garden, which might be the greatest sports spectacle of all-time. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and keep dancing, Cinderella. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

What was the last facility to host the Final Four with a seating capacity less than 30,000? (and a hint: it was not the Nassau Mausoleum)

It’s March so let’s get ready for the Madness. In the 1993 NCAA Title Game, Michigan’s Chris Webber called a timeout with 11 seconds left and UNC up by 2. Of course, the Wolverines didn’t have any timeouts. Some players are clutch and some aren’t. Jeter is clutch, and Chris Webber wasn’t. He’s afraid from the second he gets the rebound. After the weird pass/travel that wasn’t called, he does not want to be ball in his hands AT ALL. He barely even looked to pass once he got trapped in the corner. And he may claim he didn’t know how many timeouts Michigan had left but I’m not buying it. It looks like he’s thinking about calling one from the start and once he actually does call it, the look on his face screams “fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.” If he didn’t make hundreds of millions of dollars in the NBA, I’d feel bad for him.
