I guess I don't have to check to see who won. :-) Congrats!

The game was amazing. Butler came really close. The lead changed like 10 times during the game.

I just got back from Duke campus, it was insane. A pile of wooden benches in the middle of the campus set on fire, thousands of people going crazy. Good times.

One of the best games I've seen in a long time, though somehow I felt the whole way that Duke would win. Butler hung around but never built a lead larger than 2 or so and seemed to constantly be one Duke 3 pointer from having it blown open.

I really thought that last shot might go...

Also, Matt Howard needs to learn to be more circumspect about fouling people, or something.

Steve: it was tense that's for sure. Butler's defense was amazing, kept them in the game to the end.

Congrats on the win and maybe next year Northern Iowa (hope hope) can play Duke in the title game! :)

You know everyone's talking about Butler now. Don't be too bitter.

LEP: yes good point. The difference is that in ten years they'll still be talking about Duke.

Indeed. Remember George Mason's run a few years back? A lot of people don't even remember their name, or call them "George Washington".

"A pile of wooden benches in the middle of the campus set on fire,..."

Strange that one enjoys a victory with vandalism. Wonder who is gonna clean it up and pay for new benches.

LOL chesstiger.

They actually build the benches for this, and have a permit to set them on fire in case Duke wins. It's all on the up-and-up.

It was soooo close, as a recent ESPN analysis of the final shot shows.

BTW: you may enjoy my series on the Smith-Morra....
