    Its an off year for basketball.

    Watching this game is like watching a JV high school game....with 2 really bad JV teams.

    Have both teams ever lost in a game? Because that would be justice in this one.

    Is that why they call it March Madness?

    I've seen football games with less contact, and more grace.

    This is really awful.

    Looks like Butler will suck less than VCU.

    Monday night will be a snoozer.

    It doesn't have to be pretty. You just have to be the better team for 40 minutes at a time.

    They shot 38% between them. If they do that Monday night, they get beat by 40.

    Thank GOD that is over.

    I should have watched the Kids Choice Awards.

    Oh I agree, someone had to win.

    But how those two teams got there is beyond me. That is easily the worst basketball at the college level I've seen in a LONG time. It was truly hard to watch, and I'm still not sure who sucked more, but Butler got the win.

    I'll take "whoever they play next" and give the points (and I would take that against VCU had they won also).

    I've seen both Kansas AND Connecticutt play really ragged basketball. Neither had an undefeated season. So anything could happen. Because of where I placed my bets, I'm hoping Kansas wins today. And then I'll be rooting for Butler in the finals. And I don't CARE if it's pretty. :)
