Butler-VCU (or VCU-Butler) Conversation

Butler is favored by 2.5

Amazed
 
I am from Richmond, went to grad shool at VCU, and did work for the Jeff Capel show.

Im still simply amazed that VCU is in the Final Four. It almost surreal to me. And I never thought, that at any point, my grad school would have a MUCH better basketball program than my undergrad.

Again, amazing.

Since my mom went to Butler back in the day. I am torn. Do I revert to the ways of my rebellious youth and go w/ VCU? Or do I look to the future and stay in "The Will" and root for Butler?
Decisions Decisions.

I'm assuming you went to Maryland. If not, please ignore the rest of this post.

Three weeks ago, Shaka Smart didn't gather his team to watch the selection show because he had no expectation that they'd even be invited.

VCU's run has been nothing short of amazing, and I would be thrilled if it lasted two more games. But do five wins in a row make them a "MUCH better basketball program" than Maryland? There's an extremely strong likelihood that the person coaching VCU next season is someone that even most passionate college hoops fans haven't heard of yet. I think that is a much more accurate measure of the difference between VCU's program and Maryland's program right now.

Didn't like Driscoll's block call on Butler from the C. Would have liked to see him defer to Luckie in the Lead.

grunewar Sat Apr 02, 2011 06:10pm

Lucky had the foul, but held it and deferred.

That's a good call for the C to make - Driscoll was a just bit behind the play, so don't think he had the best look.

To me, Luckie, in the Lead, had the better look.

A good pregame?
