Default Who are you pulling for in the NCAA title game?

Duke vs. Butler. I don't think I have ever been as intrigued and excited about an upcoming NCAA championship game.

I'll be rooting for Butler because they are the underdog, but Duke winning would not bother me all that much either.

That said, I think Duke will probably win.

Butler. I used to live in Indianapolis. Only for that reason
I think Duke looks too strong. They're going to win it all...

I do think Duke is going to win.. 5-10 points. I just don't think Butler can rebound the ball against the Duke bigs. When you play inside out (like virtually no one in college basketball can these days), it's really hard for schools like Butler to overcome.

Butler, always love the underdog. But then again, it could be any team and I'd be rooting for them against Duke, even if Duke were the underdog.

Butler doesn't have a shot but 99% of the country will be pulling for them.

Duke has a mamouth inside game compared to Butler. I just don't see how the Bulldogs are going to counter that size advanatage, but I assume they have faced that same issue throughout the season. I hope it will be a close game, and I also hope Butler can pull it out and win.

You'd have to post something like:

"Who gives a ****? Basketball isn't a sport..."

And for all you know, he neg repped the 6 people pulling for Duke

I'm waiting for a KC fan to come in so I can side with him and watch him explode.

I'm always curious about this. Why all the hate for Duke....Butler is a cool story so I get why you'd root for them. Hell I would expect almost everyone to.

Still, why do we hate a school that just does everything the right way? They recruit good kids. They play hard. They play fundamentally sound ball. They're smart. They graduate from a tremendously difficult school. Coach-K is a west-point graduate who was hugely responsible for restoring respectability to United States basketball.

Why the hate?

I get the feeling that people prefer the renegade teams like the 1989-1990 UNLV Runnin' Rebels and the Fab Five Michigan Wolverines over a clean cut program like Duke. For instance, out of all the ESPN 30 in 30 documentaries, "The U" was far and away the most popular and talked about. The Canes had little regard for sportsmanship and conformity, the media romanticized it and people ate it up.

Plus, Duke is a prestigious Ivy League-caliber school and it has an elitist stigma attached to it. Maybe some people feel the students at Duke are already winners in society, on the fast track to six-figure salaries and they don't deserve to have it all in their charmed lives.
