Those who found the beauty in Connecticut’s 53-41 win over Butler Monday night might not have any interest in nitpicking the game ugly outcome.
If that’s the case, you definitely don’t want any part of Gary Parrish’s column over at CBSSPorts.com. It rains on the Huskies’ moment in a big way.
The Huskies aren’t the best national champion ever, but they might be the most fitting.
At a time when criticism of the NCAA has reached an all-time high thanks to a quarterback at Auburn winning the Heisman and BCS trophies despite the fact his father shopped his services for cash, basketball’s national champion is coached by a man whose program was punished by the NCAA six weeks ago. In a season when analysts and fans consistently claimed parity reigned, basketball’s national champion is coached by a man whose team finished ninth in the Big East with a 9-9 record.
Connecticut won the title?
Of course Connecticut won the title.
The only thing more fitting would’ve been Bruce Pearl cutting nets.
Factual? Yes. Fair? Maybe.
But hey, what do you want? Watching a game like that will put anyone in a sour mood.
