March Madness 2011 Final Four: Odds Out The Window?

We told you all that March Madness 2011 was going to be the year of the upset, the thing is even we didn't see this coming with no 1 or 2 seeds in the Final Four and in there place teams like Butler and VCU. Of course we weren't like most with all number 1 seeds in the Final Four but even we thought Duke and Ohio State would meet there. Our logic for calling this the year of the upset was there weren't any truly great teams we could find this season, so we felt like everyone outside of Ohio State was very vulnerable and Duke we thought had the coaching to pull them through. When we looked at the Brackets we knew Uconn could make a run, Kentucky we called as a dark hoarse, Butler we didn't respect, and we had no clue like everyone else on VCU.

So the question is do you throw the NCAA Basketball Odds out the window again for the Final Four? First we want to say it sucks that VCU and Butler will be playing in the semis as we would much rather have seen if each of these two teams have one more upset in them, the good news is of course that everybody wants to see an underdog in the final game and it is now guaranteed. If you look at the stats and the tape on VCU you have to go with VCU pulling one last mini upset, but this game is really a pick em especially with Butler's prior Final Four Experience. In the other semi game we are going with UCONN as absent of a great team a great player on a mission is the next best thing.
