The Butler Did It!

So far, so good on my Final Four predictions. I was off on the score a little bit, but getting the winners is the end game.

I’m sticking by my pick of Butler by one point. In total transparency, I will reveal that I do have Butler in the Vic Ulsh Oddity Lottery pool and having picked them with the 13th pick will look like the ultimate genius with a win.

Odds and Ends on Championship Day:

  • Is it just me or does Butler coach Brad Stevens look like he should be playing for the team, not coaching it? He looks like he’s 21 for goodness sakes! He’s actually 33 and probably the hottest coaching commodity in the country.
  • A recent ESPN poll shows that 82% of the country thinks that expanding the tournament to 96 teams stinks. The 18% must be NCAA committee members and their families.
  • It’s “madness” to think the expanded tournament is a good idea. It’s the one (and I mean the only one) thing that the NCAA actually does perfectly. That’s probably why they want to ruin it.

  1. Dan – Like most people, I am against expanding the NCAA Basketball Tournament. By expanding the tournament, the NCAA would be impacting the student athlete by taking them out of the classroom even longer than they do now. That is one of the arguments they keep using for not having a playoff to determine the football champion. They are contradicting themselves in that case. We already have other tournaments like the NIT and CBI for those teams that do not make it into the NCAA tournament. Would expanding force those tournaments to not exist?
