Prior to the Hutch game, I didn't really think that Hutch would be a serious threat to Butler, and I don't think I was alone. At least one poster called us out, asking why we believed that the result of the game was a foregone conclusion?
Well, the first game played itself out, and it was, as expected, another Butler beat down of Hutch. Frankly, the Hutch fan turnout for the game told me that most fans had written this game off, even if a few hardcore fans were still holding out hope for a win.
So, now I want to flip the question around for Hutch fans -- is there any expectation that Hutch can pull off an upset? Or is the result now a foregone conclusion?
To be honest, I get a little more nervous each week because we're so close to another national title shot. I am fretting a slip up. That being said, my more logical side says that this game will be much like the last. We may not win by 33, but I think Butler takes this game by multiple scores in the end.
