Wow - what a bracket busting weekend. I lost half of my Elite Eight on one of my final 4 ('Nova). Glad to have a chance to reset here. I'll have to ponder this a bit.

That would be pretty exciting - they are almost the home team at Syracuse. I'm sure there is some winding road from Ithaca.

Here are the states represented in the Sweet Sixteen:

California
Indiana (2)
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Michigan
New York (2)
North Carolina
Ohio (2)
Tennessee
Texas
Washington
West Virginia

Butler would love to be the home town team at the Final Four, but there are plenty of teams that are a short drive away from the Circle City.

I think The Big Red will knock off Kentucky and s/u a Syracuse-Cornell championship game..CBS will hate it because it will not be a rating winner, but upstate new york will be in a frenzy...i would pay to see that game
