    Since my son and my money both go to Butler, I've just got to say how excited we are that the Bulldogs are going to play for the national championship tomorrow night. In honor of the game, I've changed my avatar for the duration.

    GO BULLDOGS!!!!!

    Best of luck! I don't follow basketball, but we did take the kids to see the globetrotters last night.

    Im so excited for them Brian! I like it when teams that are kind of unknown get into the big dance. Hey if UCONN didnt make it Id like a team like Butler to win it.

    Since Purdue's not in it & hubby's an Indiana boy, we're cheering for Butler. Go Bulldogs!

    Based on my username, you can see how conflicted I am on this! Root for the ACC - even though this means swallowing hard and rooting for Duke - or root for the team playing Duke? :cool: What's a Terp fan to do?!

    Same problem here, we're UCONN fans, and needless to say, we are NOT Duke supporters at all. However, that darn ACC allegiance throws a wrench into things:mad:

    We are, for once, putting our allegiance to the ACC aside and root, root, root for Butler. We so want them to whip Duke's butt!

    I went to Michigan State and was so sad to see them lose to Butler! But I have to say I am rooting for Butler tonight, I love their story and love how well their coach has done being so young! Go Bulldogs!

    <<sniff, sniff>> WHAT A GAME!!!

    My son was in the crowd of students and we spotted him twice!

    One of the best NCAA championship games ever! And Butler only had 2 seniors!

    Outstanding game! What a shame that either team had to lose. Congrats to Duke for their championship and to Butler for an outstanding season.

    What a game!! It was such a gripping game from the tip-off to the sounding buzzer. I have to admit, I am a Blue Devils fan; but what a story Butler has written. I am sure we will see more of this team in future NCAA championships. (We will see more of the Blue Devils as well :) )

    Coming from a person whose nephew plays on Butler's team...she is saying that there is some hints that Hayward may look to go NBA next year. :rolleyes: I wish the boy would finish his education!

    Been out of town and away from a pc during spring break and was forced to watch the game on a 13 inch tv, surrounded by people who wouldn't be quiet (mostly my four kids).

    Next time I'm getting my own room and tv!

    All I have to say about that game is :D
