combined shooting of 23% yikes. I hope the endings good.

it' a shame because this was a great tourney up until this

I blame the NCAA for hosting the final 4 in football stadiums. I've heard the depth perception behind the baskets really f-up the players' shots.

interesting theory, got a link to the article?

true,true. I think Butler has a great tournament coach, but I would hate to develop a rep for getting to the final four, then showing you aren't big and athletic enough to take on top divisional teams.

Great tournament over all. I said at the beginning, this year it was wide open, and VCU, Arizona, Butler, FSU, Marquette, UNC, UK, and others all showed that was true.

I love knowing it went from 64 (or 68) down to 2, and that every team in the whole tournament except for 1, ended the season with a loss. I will always love that part of the format.

I could look it up. They mentioned it on TV during the Saturday games. It makes sense too. VCU was on fire from 3 point range during the whole tournament, then don't shoot as well in the simi-final. I'm starting to become a believer.
nevermind, that 2nd half was awful to watch

It's been mentioned for a long time. I remember when NBA visiting teams used to visit the old San Antonio Dome they used to complain about this.

Here are a few articles on the debate. Most point out that the numbers don't change, but show the debate:

congrats teeohh
^ interesting stuff. I personally don't like basketball games being played in football stadiums. I just find the TV camera angle to be too awkward.

true,true. I think Butler has a great tournament coach, but I would hate to develop a rep for getting to the final four, then showing you aren't big and athletic enough to take on top divisional teams.

What's a top divisional team? I don't even know what that means. Sure Butler lost to Duke and UCONN, but they can beat top clubs. Just ask Pitt, Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Syracuse and Kansas State.

Can't help but think of the Buffalo Bills when I think of Butler. The Bills lost that first Super Bowl on the final second field goal then got trashed the next year. It's a shame as I would love to see a mid-major win a major national college championship. It would completely validate the argument for a playoff in college football.

No it wouldn't.
