    You should root for Michigan State and West Virginia, then Michigan State in the finals. Don't ask questions why, just know it would really help ol' Clonefan32 out....

    I am really confused why you would look for guidance on who to root for...

    Edit: By the way, enjoy the games. It is quite an experience even if you don't have a dog in the fight!

    for Butler, against MSU, sort of against Duke, don't care W Vig.

    so I guess I'm looking for a Butler / W Vig final with a Butler win.

    not that I'm too spun up on the remaining field except MSU is the devil.

    WVa cause it wins me a little money. At least WVa over Duke. Then Butler can win it all!


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Butler because I like the underdogs and West Virginia because I need WV in the final game to win my pool

    After our game with Duke, I called them winning it all this year. So I'll be routing for Duke

    I like West Virginia because of how tough that team is. They didn't have near the talent that Kentucky did but yet they were a lot smarter and tougher. I also like Butler just because they are the underdog

    Re: Who to root for at the Men's Final Four?

    I think the best outcome would be a school like Butler knocking off the Dukies in the finals, to me that would be the best upset of the final four. It may also win me the CF bracket challenge...

    This. Butler first and foremost. After that pretty much anybody but MSU.

    FYI.... calling Butler an underdog seems a bit of a stretch. They were a top 10 team going into this season. Many people seem to be forgetting that.

    Re: Who to root for at the Men's Final Four?

    I personally dislike three of the four finalist this year.
    I still hate Michigan State from the 2000 tourney, damn you Martin Cleves.
    Who on here seriously likes Duke. They always get all the glory and beside the last couple years always win. Duke= Yankees of MBB
    And finally Butler style of play just bores me. Slowed down defensive game.

    If I had to pick a winner between the Butler, Michigan State game I would have to say Butler even Michigan State might make the championship a little more exciting but I hate them way to much to cheer for them.
    Definately cheer for West Virginia because do we really want Duke to become dominate and hear for the next 6 months how good they are. Plus West Virginia has DeSean Butler, huge playmaker that is very exciting to watch.
    As for the championship cheer for West Virginia again. I don't really have a reason other than Butler being boring and I don't want to see a boring defensive team win the championship.

    Not sure how you can NOT root for Butler. That's a great story right there.

    I sort of fell in love with that one player when he announced that the kids at their camp demand watching Hoosiers every night and it gets pretty annoying.

    As long as Duke doesn't win I will be happy.
