Butler and VCU Can Do It…Why Not TCU and Boise State?

Butler and VCU Can Do It…Why Not TCU and Boise State?

Hyped by on March 28, 2011 Website:

Who doesn’t love an underdog? I chose Kansas to win it all in my bracket, but I found myself pulling for eleven-seed VCU to pull off the upset, sending Kansas back to Lawrence and my bracket into further disarray. A day earlier, Butler upset two-seed Florida to earn its second consecutive trip to the Final Four where they'll take on VCU, guaranteeing that either Butler or VCU will play in the championship game. What does this all prove? It shows that every single team, regardless of conference affiliation or pedigree, deserves an equal shot at the national championship; and that any given team is capable of beating any given team when it's all on the line. It's what makes college sports so exciting, yet college football is yet to arrive at the postseason party.

  • This has been one the strangest tournaments I’ve ever seen. College football could never have this postseason excitement as long as the BCS exists. VCU’s win sets up a historic game with Butler, two unranked teams in Final Four game. This occurrence says a lot about college basketball today, anyone can win it all.
