College Football Name of the Year, The Final Four: 3 Cougars and a Lion King

Equanimeous St. Brown falls to Squally Canada, Lion King and Chaz Ah You continue to dominate, and Handsome Tanielu continues to win for some ridiculous reason

NCAA Football: Brigham Young at Hawaii Marco Garcia-USA TODAY Sports

The College Football Name of the Year Tournament (CFNoTYT) is down to its Final 4!

After a tumultuous and way-too-drawn-out tournament, we’ve reached the semi-finals, where the champions of the Barkevious Mingo, Yourhighness Morgan, D’Brickashaw Ferguson, and Immaculate Perfection Harris regions will collide to determine who gets to face off for FBS nomenclature glory.

Here is an updated bracket if you want to take a look back at how we got to where we are. Otherwise, let’s dive into the Final Four voting matchups — voting for the Final Four will close at 12 AM ET on 12/2!

Barkevious Mingo Region Champion vs. Yourhighness Morgan Region Champion

Overall 1-seed Lion King from Eastern Michigan defeated 6-seeded Bull Barge in a blowout in the quarterfinals, as expected.

Meanwhile, BYU’s Chaz Ah You, a 3-seed, was even more dominant over 5th-seeded Thunder Keck of Stanford.

Will the PRIDE of the Eastern Michigan program have the claws to take down BYU’s sneeze-name, or will the Cougars DB be responding to the question of who will win with “Chaz Ah Me, baby!”?

D’Brickashaw Ferguson Region Champion vs. Immaculate Perfection Harris Region Champion

On the other side of the bracket, we have been graced with an all-BYU matchup, making it 3 of 4 names remaining hailing from Provo, Utah.

1-seed Squally Canada used his experience in the frozen tundra to take down Notre Dame’s Equanimeous St. Brown, while Cinderella name Handsome Tanielu continues to defeat superior names to advance in the bracket, absolutely crushing your favorite HP printer spokesman, Jet Toner.*

Does Handsome still have the beautiful look of a winner, or will he have to cover up his good looks due to the snow squalls being wrought upon him from the north?

*This name didn’t deserve to make it past the first round. I am begging you all to get this right and not have Handsome Tanielu beat a juggernaut like Squally Canada. PLEASE DON’T DISAPPOINT ME.
