I went to a school outside the Power 6 conferences (University of North Texas grad). More people have than haven't I would assume. Tomorrow Butler, once again, takes the banner for all of us into the Title game. Milan's famous Indiana High school champion (immortalized as Hickory in the classic Hoosiers) did not actually win on their first attempt. In 1953 they improbably made the state Final Four, before losing. The next year, shockingly they returned and won the whole dang thing.
As the famous quote in the movie goes "This is for all the little schools that never made it here." Indeed. I may be a Mean Green Eagle, but tomorrow I will cheer on the Bulldogs about as hard as I've ever rooted for any team in my life.
