    Butler has had many more postseason appearances than WSU has had. They're not exactly an unknown.

    I am not convinced of that. I would think if they made it more people would pay attention to see if the underdog could kick it all the way to glory. Didn't watch, so not sure what happened. But I saw a stinking pile too and it was my team.

    Shockers were going to "play angry". Apparently some can "lose angry" too. They played a great game- no shame in the loss. Try to look forward to next year. That's what U of L did last year after the Final Four loss to UK and now they are back and better.

    And UK didn't even get an invite this year...

    Of course, UK is no longer a college ball team... just a prep school for the NBA... and more schools will be headed this way.

    That would be nice, for a non-football school.

    U of L Women in the Final Four Championship game too! Improbable comeback win in the semi-finals over Cal. 64 to 57.

    Let me lay it out. University of Louisville this year.

    2013 Football BCS Sugar Bowl Champs. Lou. beats Fla.-Amazing! Charlie Strong signs to continue head coach job.

    Big East splits up- U of L joins ACC. next year. This is a big step.

    Men's and Women's basketball teams in the finals. IF they both pull it off, it will be a first.

    First time it has been done since 2004. When it did not count, since they are a non-football school.

    Had Martin lived long enough, the stories of Rellford, Da' Judge etc would have come out.
