The Georgia Dome will host four rounds of NCAA Tournament basketball over the next two seasons. Here's a ncaa tournament host cities for the next two years of March Madness. Having the 2012 Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight and the 2013 Final Four and championship in the A sounds great and all, but let's just hope that title game doesn't turn out like the first half of last night's last night's Butler-UConn scrum, am I right?

Georgia Tech will be the host university for both events. Bring your own Xbox controller, America.

That will be the Dome's third Final Four and Atlanta's fourth. The city provided college basketball's final stage in 1977, 2002, and 2007. The champs those years: the Marquette Golden Eagles, Maryland Terrapins, and Florida Gators. Atlanta also hosted the Sweet Sixteen regional in 2004, 2006, and probably some other times that are not so easy to find.

Elsewhere around the Southeast, the 2012 Final Four is set for New Orleans, and Greensboro, Nashville, Lexington, and Louisville get regionals.
