Vote in the Columbus Madness Final Four

After two even matchups and two absolute clobberings, we're here with your Columbus Madness Final Four matchups.

The latest: The Columbus Dispatch's neon sign took down the Terminator effortlessly, so Arnold Schwarzenegger's statue will not be back in the finals.

  • But now the historic sign faces Ohio Stadium, a fan-favorite powerhouse that toppled the Union Station arch without trouble.

The other side: COSI versus the Ohio Statehouse.

  • Both edged out their competition — North Market and the Short North arches, respectively — by a much narrower margin, meaning this matchup could be anybody's game.
