Bulldogs vs. Blue Devils.

I'm watching — out of the corner of my eye — because I'm married... to a Hoosier.

I'd love to see the upset...my brain says "Duke", but my heart says "Butler"

Butler leads, 1-0!

Enjoy.

Ron said...

A WolverBadgerine should have no problems with any Hoosier....

Rialby said...

Go Butler!

victoria said...

Go Bulldogs!!!!

Duke is gonna win this by 20 but I'm rooting for Butler.

themightypuck said...

Trivia. Butler hasn't lost in 2010.

traditionalguy said...

Duke is resented among the ACC because of something in their attitude that says they are better because their name Duke. These Bulldogs are well able to beat them.

David said...

Butler so far:

Good defense.
Good rebounding.

Shooting--not so good.

Somebody get hot and Butler wins.

David said...

One point game--where Butler wants it.

Somebody gotta shoot better though.

Jukes!

Charlie Martin said...

Hoosier daddy?

Indiana has a lock on sports movies with Hoosiers and Breaking Away.

traditionalguy said...

My favorite Indiana movie is still A History of Violence. We will see if Butler can put a violent defense on these Devils like Indiana guys once did to Tecumpseh's team.

themightypuck said...

Duke will win and most will be sad but we can enjoy those fleeting moments of optimism and afterwards be optimistic about something else.

traditionalguy said...

It ain't over until the fat referee sings out another bad call against Butler.

Michael Hasenstab said...

Fook Duke.

David said...

13.6 to go ......

Meade said...

So close.

David said...

Tough night for Gordon Heyward. Too bad.

avwh said...

Bummer. That charging call on Heyward (when Scheyer slid into his path AFTER Heyward left his feet) was the difference.

Great game, though.

Meade said...

Yeah, it really was a great game. Butler can hold heads high.

avwh said...

Oh - and there may never be an NCAA championship game with more white guys on the court at once than there was tonight (NTTAWWT).

David said...

Duke tactics: Foul Heyward--see if they get called.

It worked.

XWL said...

After watching the game, and seeing Matt Howard's unfortunate grooming choices, I nominate this as "Tweet of the Day"

from SportsPickle:

Matt Howard is a two-time Academic All-American, yet not smart enough to shave off that mustache. Sad.

Truer words have never been tweeted.

Great effort by Butler, so-so effort by Duke, congrats to both teams for making the Finals, and congrats to the Blue Devils for holding on for the title.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Good game although I was half asleep through most of it. I went to Butler for a year so it was nice to see them give it a go.

Duke University - the best school that tobacco money could buy. Though the folks at Wake Forest would dispute that!

MadisonMan said...

Duke never had to play a #1 seed!

AJ Lynch said...

Damn, I was all set to scream ......Butler did it Butler did it!

k*thy said...

Great game. Fun to watch. My dad's a Hoosier, too. He grew up just a couple miles from the Butler campus and talked my ear off about Butler and 1950's Indiana basketball, on Sunday. Good times.

Paul said...

But the important Final (Frozen) Four starts Thursday for Badger fans.

bagoh20 said...

what, what happened? Why didn't you guys wake me up? Can I still bet on Butler?

Ritmo Brasileiro said...

Ahhh.... Indiana. A state where the by-products of its principle industries, agriculture and unregulated chemicals, comfortably co-exist in the bodies of its mutated inhabitants.

Home healing from a horseback riding accident, so have the time to mess around on the computer. Saw Prof. Althouse first on bloggingheads.tv and then found her blog. I agree with most of her views, and even if I didn't I wouldn't complain. What a beautiful lady and what a great smile. We didn't have law professors like her in my day (early 60s). Indeed, I had only one female teacher -- nice lady but definitely not a dish. Plus, Amy roots for Butler. I'm smitten.
