Five years ago Brad Stevens led one of the most unbelievable runs in sports history

It's funny to look back on those back-to-back national title games for Butler University knowing what we do now about Brad Stevens.  Considering everything he's gotten out of a not particularly talented Boston Celtics ballclub the last two years (and in their history-breaking win last night, which I predicted a month ago), his unprecedented NCAA tournament success no longer seems quite so unfathomable.

From March 29, 2011: I think what Butler is doing might be the most amazing thing in the history of sports

And from April 3, 2011: Freaking Butler again!?! Not possible

While I'm on the subject, here's what I wrote about Stevens the day the Celtics hired him.  Also, from last week, Stevens sounds like he misses being a college coach sometimes.
