Is it crazy ifI think Butler wins the national championship?
They have beat good team after good team, and now they have HOME COURT ADVANTAGE in the final 4.. plus Kentucky is out on the other side,
I think Butler plays Baylor and wins..
I think Butler matches up well with Michigan State, West Virginia, and Duke because of their (Butler's) perimeter defense. However, I think they would have a tough time with Tennessee and Baylor because of those teams' interior skill and depth. The home town advantage could be the X factor, but a lot of it will depend on their match up(s) next weekend.
Most people look at the homecourt advantage factor as a positive, but it can also be looked at as a negative. More pressure and distractions.
i hope they win it all..im rooting for them or wv to win it all since i was enrolled there for a couple months before getting in trouble..lol
I hope Butler wins it all. If Butler wins it all it will be the greatest thing to ever happen in the tournament for a mid-major, bigger than George Mason. Winning a Championship supersedes a final four appearance. If Butler wins it all the only thing that we'll be waiting for is a 16 seed over a 1 seed.
^^^lol..you are so set on them being a bigger shocker then mason..lol..even if they win there odds of winning it are 3 times as better as masons was when both were in the final four
Quincey, that's all vegas odds that's irrelevant. My point is that if it does happen it will be bigger than Mason. NO ONE experts especially, and most regular joes did not have Butler winning it all. Now in the final four only 2 more games.
that wasnt just vegas odds. i looked up peoples opinions as well on google. the point is it will be a bigger upset to you but to the majority of peopel it wont be
the 3 times as much wasnt even vegas odds. it was espn ,usa today, and cnnsi polls when asked the chances of mason winning it all compared to butler this year
to be honest the vegas odds was something like 6times as much
To me a mid-major team winning a national championship is a bigger deal than a final four appearance. I am not downplaying what George Mason did by any means, but Butler has the opportunity to accomplish something more extraordinary. The Horizon league w/o Butler is garbage, the CAA w/o George Mason 2006 was a very good league that year, and the CAA is a more reputable conference than the Horizon league. Also, whatever these people's opinions are is right now irrelevant even mine because Butler has to win the games first. If they don't then George Mason's run is still king. The biggest reason why people aren't as shocked on Butler is because they have seen this happen with George Mason, if Butler wins it all or is even in the National Championship game people will be just as shocked. I know George Mason fans that would consider Butler going deeper a bigger accomplishment.
wouldnt shock me, they already beat a #1 and a #2 seed
I hope Butler wins and you all can see what a real Indiana riot is like.....lets just say I wouldn't park my car in downtown indy next monday!!!!!!!!!!!!
thats why i said to you knicksfan.. but not to most people
