What a great story! Small school coming home to Indy to play in the Final Four. I don't doubt the rest of the country will tire of hearing of the "Hoosiers" comparison. Nevertheless, congrats to Butler!

I am truly happy for them and it's great to see that even the tiny schools get a chance to dream for 3 weeks in March! Granted they've been quite the basketball program for some time now but still not the powerhouses they have beaten. They have a great shot at beating either Tenn. or Michigan St. and then yeah it will be tough to beat any of those 4 remaining on the other side of the bracket.

I scared my children screaming for them! Wow. The refs wanted to hand it to K-State. And they had better start making those freaking free throws!

Way to go Bulldogs! They've earned the title, Cinderella.

Who would have thought that a small school like Butler could gun and shoot its way past giants to get into the Final Four? The final chapter of this story has not been written yet.

I love that they're doing it primarily on defense. Seeing halftime scores in the low 20's was fantastic. Kind of wish this could have happened while I was at Butler.

I don't think that Butler is gun and shoot. They play GOOD FUNDAMENTAL BASKETBALL! Did you see the last wide open opportunity that Butler had to slam it down? Did he slam it down? NO!!! He did a layup! How many teams to that anymore??? Now granted, he missed, but someone followed up, but they didn't slam it either! This is what's missing from college basketball and it makes my heart happy to see this team not lower themselves to the undisciplined style of play that permeates this most hallowed game.

Well he did try to dunk it, just couldn't quite get up there and realized it at the last minute! I'm just glad sleazeball Calipari lost last night although I can't handle Huggins either but I do love me some Duke basketball!
