Dolphins like Rebels to reach Final Four

If you thought placing a giant bet on UNLV to make it to the Final Four was smart, you were right. There’s proof.

Earlier this week, dolphins from Atlanta’s Georgia Aquarium predicted the Rebels would reach the hallowed semifinals of college basketball’s biggest tournament. Flipper would be proud.

It could happen, right? In recent memory, unranked underdogs such as Butler (twice) and George Mason have reached the Final Four.

College basketball commentator Dick Vitale will go head to head in a bracket contest against the dolphins as part of the Allstate March Mayhem Challenge in Atlanta.

A loss for Vitale would mean a day as the dolphins' personal assistant, with duties that would include feeding them and cleaning their tanks.
