A mid-major in the championship game. Definitely NOT what the NCAA wanted. A big f-u to the BCS schools!!!

I think it's great. I hope they win it all. It would be even sweeter if they beat Duke in the championship game!

X-Greensboro Resident is right. Butler has had a great season and is on a roll. Good for them!

I want Butler to win it! Tired of the so called big name schools that are nothing but factories for the major league sports, enticing kids thousands of miles away from home, because they'd otherwise not get the exposure necessary for the next level, unless it was accidental. Let's have the kids that stay close to home, enjoying their home cooking, prove it's still a game NOT just the business, the NCAA has built it up to be!

Sorry, but I hate UK and will never respect them. The constantly, year in and out, dodge my favorite team; Murray State. A mid-major.

I'd rather cheer for UT before UK.

I think the NCAA is a little ok with a basketball mid-major going to the final. Definitely can use it as a selling point for tournament expansion. Just a feeling. Football on the other hand.....

The BCS has nothing to do with NCAA B-ball. (no thanks to Wiki)

I've always hated the term Mid-major.

Thanks Espn for marginalizing at least a dozen solid B-ball programs. (but no word on the Mid-major FB teams? Oh thats right its only for B-ball)

When UNLV was running it I never heard the term "Mid-major"

Just another reason to not tune in to Espn.
