You should root for Michigan State and West Virginia, then Michigan State in the finals. Don't ask questions why, just know it would really help ol' Clonefan32 out....
this would help me out too......
There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams
Butler without question. Michigan State and West Virginia are "bangers" and its disgusting to think that these teams that just drive and bang are going to win over and over. I really like watching Gordon Howard of Butler. Skilled player with excellent ability for his size. Plus I think 10 of the 13 players for Butler are on the Dean's List, 2 of them are Academic All-Americans. Their graduation rate is 3rd in the nation.
I'd like to see Duke vs. Butler in a National Championship game as it might actually look like basketball and not Football without pads.
Who should we be rooting for when we are at the Final Four this weekend and why?
Since all my brackets are shot, I have no personal glory in rooting for anyone.
I could find a reason to root *against* any of the four.
As for what will most likely transpire, rooting or not:
1. MSU will beat Butler —*tight game most of the way, but Izzo will out-Butler Butler.
2. Duke will beat WVa — tight game most of the way, but Duke will counter-Huggins Huggins.
3. Duke-MSU in the championship. If the combined score is under 150, MSU wins.
If both (1) and (2) are incorrect, it will cap off the most insane tournament since the field expanded to 64 teams.
I'm rooting for anyone but WVa. If they lose, I win 1st and 3rd places in my pool. If they win it all, I go to 3rd and 4th. I guess I'd really like to see Butler do it. Has a mid-major ever won the championship?
