    Who are you rooting for? VCU or Butler?

    I have no idea who to root for, and I'm curious about other people's opinions.

    VCU.

    Butler isn't cute anymore. It's like a kitten that turned into a cat. Also see Gonzaga.

    Don't care. Can't wait for the game.

    Pert of me want to see Butler ger another shot. Other part wants to see VCU make it to be the first team to play 7 games in the tourney.

    Butler. I want all those people who said that Butler lost their only shot at ever winning a championship to eat those words.

    I really wish they could meet in the title game. Wouldn't that just be amazing to see? An 8 and 11 seed?

    Re: Who are you rooting for? VCU or Butler?

    VCU mostly because Butler was already in the title game last year.

    Tough call. VCU would be an incredible story if they won it, coming from an 11 seed. However, id love to see Butler get a second shot at a national title.

    Many people forget just how close Butler came to winning last year. Right down to the half-court shot that had a chance to go in.

    VCU. I want to see a whole bunch of talking heads who think they know everything about which teams should be in the tournament get a big helping of f-you from VCU.

    Butler.
    Hopefully they can use this success to start getting more top tier recruits from inside the state.

    But yet they were right. VCU did not deserve the spot, based on its regular season performance.

    They've taken the opportunity and ran with it (and good for them), but tournament performance doesnt justify placement into the tourney. What if Colorado had been in instead of them? Who's to say Colorado doesnt go on its own run?

    Re: Who are you rooting for? VCU or Butler?

    The only thing I hate about the VCU story is that they will use it to rationalize expanding the tournament field even further.. I don't want a 128 team tournament.. but thats a topic for another thread
