The quality of tonight's championship game and the tournament as a whole goes without saying, so I'll just say this one thing. I'll say it once. Never again. It strikes me that Duke is the least respected champion in recent memory. They played a great tournament and won it all, but every announcer was talking about how great Butler was. I believe Gumbel or Nantz even said that they were champions, even if the points weren't in their favor. Butler was incredible and, if they had won, would have been maybe the biggest story in the history of the NCAA tournament. But Duke won and they deserve the credit.
