    Great Butler defense on those last two KState possessions. That's three games in a row that have been decided by strong defensive plays for Butler. Nice work.

    I couldn't be happier for the Butler Bulldogs. Great to see a mid major in the Final Four, and one from Indiana at that!

    Butler vs. Michigan St. should be fun. Butler has a chance to play for the national championship at home, similar to how Michigan St. got to play in Detroit last year.

    Should be a really good game. And MSU winning without Kalin Lucas is even more remarkable. Tom Izzo is one hell of a coach

    He's creeping up into legendary territory. Seriously. Six Final Four appearances in 12 years, with a National Championship thrown in there in '00, is just ridiculous.

    Yeah, Izzo has to be considered an all-time great coach at this point, no question. It's gotten to the point where one can claim MSU will win because of Izzo and people will accept it as fact.

    Wonder if that works for anything else.

    Why did you hit your brother? Izzo thought it would improve my conditioning program if I added some boxing.

    Why were you speeding? Izzo is having a conference that starts in ten minutes!

    Why did you invade Iraq? Izzo said there were top basketball prospects!

    MSU started out trying to run and push the tempo. That's what every team tries to do against Butler. Now, Butler has them slowing it down. No team, no matter who they are or want style they play is able to play their game against Butler. Butler always gets them out of their comfort zone.

    Butler's defense has held every team in the NCAA tournament under 60 points and are on pace to do it again.

    I wouldn't advocate going 10+ minutes without a field goal against Duke or West Virginia. Otherwise top shelf effort from Butler, especially on the defensive end.

    I never thought I would see Butler make it to the National Title game. Great to see this and it takes away some of the sting of the Colts Super Bowl loss for me.

    Colts were in the SuperBowl? Lol Just kidding.

    I'm hoping that Butler's success and most likely another season of the Fever doing well will help this city return to being a basketball town again, Colts and HS football have dominated the scene for too long now, and people just don't seem to have the same passion for basketball on any level until recently of course.
