freaking butler again?!? not possible.

ok, this is totally redundant cause i just wrote about it a few days ago.  but i feel like i have to say it again.  small schools from non-major conferences do NOT make it to the championship.  pretty much ever.  here's the previous 10 title game matchups:

north carolina vs michigan st
kansas vs memphis
florida vs ohio st
florida vs ucla
north carolina vs illinois
uconn vs georgia tech
syracuse vs kansas
maryland vs indiana
duke vs arizona
michigan st vs florida

all big schools from major conferences.  in fact, you have to go all the way back to 1979 to find anything even remotely like butler in the title game.  indiana st made it that year, but they had a guy named larry bird.  the chances of any "cinderella" small school ever getting to the final are extremely rare.  the odds against something like that happening in consecutive years are astronomical.  but the odds of it happening twice in a row to the SAME TEAM?  i literally don't even think you can calculate it.
