ATLANTA -- The chant began in the rafters of the Georgia Dome late Saturday night. It was loud and constant and making its way to the bars from downtown to Buckhead and all points in between.

So see, Florida fans were already rubbing it in.
Meanwhile, Ohio State fans got exactly what they wanted.
Or, more accurately, exactly what they least wanted at all.
"Go UCLA! Come on!"
That's what a large portion of the Buckeyes' contingent shouted when the Bruins took the court Saturday before Florida promptly ran them straight off it. So OSU fans clearly don't believe in the scientifically-lacking yet optimism-promoting theory that the third time is indeed a charm.
The third time is actually undesirable.
"We already lost to them in football and in basketball once," said Ohio State freshman Daequan Cook. "But hopefully, this time, the result will be different."
The hottest story going at this Final Four is whether Billy Donovan is one game away from signing a huge contract with Florida or one game away from signing a huge contract with Kentucky. In an attempt to find the answer, a Jack-and-Coke induced poll has been conducted from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. each of the past three nights, and six out of every 10 college coaches asked with an I'm-not-going-to-quote-you promise have told CBS SportsLine.com they believe Donovan will be named Kentucky's coach later this week.
So take that for what it's worth.
