Butler dashed Syracuse's national title hopes last night. It was a wonderful sight to see another No. 1 seed fall in the NCAA tourney. It's the beauty of March Madness.
People call the Butler win an upset. But was it? These Bulldogs haven't last a game a game in a long, long time (undefeated this season). Plus, Butler has a history of success in the NCAA tourney.
This veteran club is like other mid-majors in the tournament. The Bulldogs are veteran team with a hard shell. They won't back down, they won't give in to the opposition.
Butler coach Brad Stevens looks calm on the sidelines. His team displays that calm. Even when the Orange look like they were going in win at the 5-7-minute mark, the Bulldogs didn't panic.
So now its on to the Elite Eight against Kansas State. Despite being a Big 12 Conference fan, here's my vote for Butler.
Wouldn't that be something if the Bulldogs could win Saturday and return to their hometown of Indianapolis for the Final Four?
