How long would it take to convince you the more surprising team in this national championship game isConnecticut, not Butler?
Believe it or not, that is the case. Forget the names stitched on the front of the mesh. Disregard the eight-seed next to Butler's name and the three next to Connecticut's. Butler has altered our mindset and has the potential to alter how we view mid-majors entirely, should it win Monday night here in the Space City.
Despite how amazing this feat is for the Bulldogs, one of these teams was ranked in the preseason, and it wasn't the Huskies. Butler was tabbed 18th; UConn did not receive a vote.
