* The craziness of March Madness has Butler in position to reach the Final Four again. It will not be easy though, as they will have to get through the Florida Gators.
* Butler’s strong defense threw Wisconsin off their game. If the Bulldogs defend that well against Florida, they will probably advance to next weekend in Houston.

As for those other four teams and Florida, I don't think any of them can beat KU because they all would have the Jayhawks' full and undivided attention.

No, I think our last, best hope lies in another killer B: The Butler Bulldogs. There's an outside chance that the Beakers might take the Boy Wonder and his Cinderella kids lightly, even in the Final Four, and Butler is equipped for the upset.
