    What a team. What a.coach. Putting Hopkins in for that five minute stretch was.the move of the tournament. It gave them so much energy

    Butler, what an inspiration. Thats a team who knows how to win, even when they put themselves in a bind.

    Wow, good thing I don't gamble. Betting against Butler making it back to the Final Four would have appeared to me to be the safest bet of all time. All I can say is WOW. Lightning just struck twice. This team is for real.
    That sort of thing happens time to time because of guys having been there before so they know what it takes to do it again. That's why everyone in the know stresses the impotence of making the playoffs.

    You can't bet against them; they just match up.

    Crud! I worked today until 5 CST and assumed (keep in mind, I live in Arkansas, all anyone is talking about is Mike Anderson being hired as head coach) that the game would start late like the Thursday game. I got a call while I was in KFC that the game had 50 seconds left. I missed the whole thing, no Tivo or anything to even go back and watch it.

    Butler has more maturity and heart for the game of basketball than the Pacers do.

    Brad Stevens always keeps his guys in line and wouldn't tolerate the sloppy play by the Pacers.

    I woke up from a nap in time to watch the last ten seconds.

    I'm not sure if I can muster up the energy to watch the pacers after that great Bulter effort.
    Give the ball to your best playmakers to win

    Call me a band wagon jumper. I love watching this team play. I am sorry for doubting them ever. I am a Hoosier fan for life. But the Bulldogs are soooo much fun to watch.

    Its easier to have a hold on players who aren't paid more than you are to respect you.

    D.Nored looks like B.Rush.

    IMO...
    B.Stephens leaves Butler for only 1 job: Duke!

    Duke? Really?

    If he's going to leave for a bigger school it will be IU since Bloomington is closer to Indianapolis and its a big enough program for him to make the commute not so bad.

    He's lived here his entire life I can't imagine him wanting to go beyond the Hoosier state.

    Unless his wife has something to say about it.

    If Crean can't win w/ his '12 class, I agree, but NO WAY IN HELL you turn down Duke!

    If I'm Brad, I would ONLY leave for a top 5 job, & Duke is a small school school, great rep, great conference, great traditon. Nothing else is worth leaving what he has & where he has it, IMO.

    I think he's gonna leave, but he could also stay and turn Butler into Duke.

    They were discussing Missouri making a run at Matt Painter yesterday on "The Ride." If Purdue is open I would expect they would make a serious run at Stevens (they would be foolish not to). On the other hand, as an IU fan, I hope he doesnt go there. It would really suck for me to have to live through 20 years of Purdue kicking IU's butt. The last few years have been intolerable. I couldnt imagine living through this for two decades!

    there's a logical fallacy...e.g. i lived most of my first 18 years in indiana, and couldn't wait to get out!
