Final Four is set

The 2010 NCAA Final Four in Indianapolis is all set. It will include Duke, West Virginia, Butler, and Michigan State. Butler will be playing in its home city six miles away from its campus. If they were to win they would be the first mid major to win a national title and it would change the college basketball landscape forever. Duke has returned to prominence as a usual national contender and they may even be the team to restore order to college basketball. Michigan State, although they are a low seed, always seems to make noise come March and them winning the title would not be a surprise and given how strong the Big East has been it would almost be be appropriate if they won.

Personally, for anyone to make the case there is parity in college basketball it would necessitate Butler winning. With all the excitement that March Madness brings one of the top contenders usually rises to the top but a mid major winning the title would change that.
