David vs. Goliath!
The moment has arrived! The Final Four has become the Final Two.
It's the No. 1 Duke Blue Devils vs. the No. 5 Butler Bulldogs for all the marbles. I wonder how many people had this matchup in their brackets? My guess is, not too many.
As for Duke, they are no strangers to this world. This will be the Blue Devil's 10th finals appearance with 3 national championships (1991, 1992, 2001) under their belt. For Butler, it's been all surreal since making their first ever Elite 8 earlier in the tournament. Since then every step forward has been uncharted waters for them.
So who am I rooting for?
I'm going to have to say Butler-- simply because of my love for first-time champions. Duke has been there, done that. In other words, Butler could be the next New Orleans Saints. In sports, winning championships is a tough deal, so it's great when a team wins that elusive first championship.
But if Duke wins, more power to them. They earned it just as much. But after the Saints dramatic Super Bowl win, it would be great to see the trend of spreading the wealth continue in all sports.
And only Butler can make that happen. So, GO BUTLER!
