Joe Posnanski: Butler's story rivals that of Hoosiers -- minus the 'miracle' part

INDIANAPOLIS -- The one thing that is important to get straight, right off the top: Butler is not that great a story. That's not a knock -- it's the opposite of a knock. Butler is a very good basketball team. They're not some perplexing phenomenon. Oh sure, it's fun to have a new name at the Final Four, but let's not go crazy. This is not really some crazy Hoosiers-type saga, you know, with Gene Hackman teaching kids how to dribble around chairs and Jimmy Chitwood joining the team to save the coach's job and Ollie making underhand free throws to win a game at the end.
