Si_cover ATLANTA- Junior forward Corey Brewer is on the cover of Sports Illustrated, on newsstands today. (Click image to enlarge.)

The Portland, Tenn., native was the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Final Four. The cover features Brewer as he leaps up at the rim on the way to completing one of his spectacular dunks. The headline reads: "REPEAT: Florida Pounds Ohio State To Win National Title."

The cover also features an inset of last year's cover featuring Joakim Noah (April 10, 2006) and of Chris Leak's cover (Jan. 15, 2007) after the Gators won the football national championship.

Here is a sample of what's in the article, written by SI's Grant Wahl:

"If last year's champions were the self-proclaimed Gator Boys, charming upstarts who rode a Banzai Pipeline wave to glory, then these titlists should go down as History Boys, a once-in-a-generation collective that achieved one of the rarest feats in modern American team sports. Only once in the past 33 years had Division I men's college basketball crowned a repeat champ - Duke in 1991 and '92 - and never had a reigning team overcome such an exhausting barrage of questions about its chances of winning back-to-back trophies.''
