Think twice before choosing Butler, Oakland

Last night two of this year’s better mid-majors clinched automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament. Butler, a household name based on all the fun they had last season, and Oakland, the gritty Summit League winners led by dominating big-man Keith Benson, are two teams the casual fan may eagerly pencil for a trip to the second round or Sweet 16.

But please, refrain from being impulsive. Promote an atmosphere for self-clarity!

While the Bulldogs know how to spark magic, and the Grizzlies, on the surface, have the make-up to upset a higher seeded opponent, neither truly should be considered as legitimate bracketbusters.
