Hats off to Butler, you have convinced myself a ton of people that you are for real!

And to Duke, you have convinced me and a bunch of people that you are not the best team in the NCAA!

On that play he went for the ball. The announcers were pretty accurate commenting on the calls, and even they said it wasn't flagrant.

Butler had a great run and were fun to watch. They also ruined countless brackets across the nation.

Duke had a great run and won the title. They had a lot of recent disappointing exits from the tournament in recent years, so they needed this win bigtime.

Congrats to Butler and Duke for an amazing game to end March Madness.
