Thanks to Mid-Majority for celebrating college basketball at the purest level with optimal coverage.

This unique experience will be dearly missed. - Afi Ahmadi
Players come and go. Rules change. Coaches retire. But Our game remains the constant. Its blemishes never diminish its beguiling, beautiful moments, which is why it can be glorious and heart-wrenching from one instant to the next. Perfect? No. But that?s why I love it so. - Mike Miller
From the simple idea that we learn more, share more, care more about that which is real, The Mid-Majority crafted a community. This site may go dark like a lost star, but its spirit shines on among us. Let's go places - together. - Travis Mason-Bushman
You've heard the old story before. A bunch of crazy college kids record a silly rap on someone's laptop, one of them just so happens to be a star player for a NCAA Tournament-bound mid-major team, and they upload it to YouTube. Then, some fans find it. Then it goes national, yadda yadda yadda, and the kids freak out and take it down.
This, my friends, is the story of former MMBOW Gordon "Spankmaster" Hayward of Butler, who went under alter ego "G-Time" for this studio session (hey, Kool Keith has about 10 names), and laid down some SMAC RAP about what's going to happen over the next three weeks.
But to remove this masterpiece from the internet, to deny that something like "Too Big Yo" ever existed, is like dropping a triple-double in a game and trying to convince the world that it never happened. And science has proven that there is nothing more funny than white guys from Indiana rapping, right? So here, then, thanks to the magic of intertron technology, is the surviving audio. Ladies and gentlemen, it doesn't matter if you are a Butler fan or not, this is our anthem for the 2010 Big Dance. (Spank comes in at the 1:50 mark.)
"Too big" ups to TMM hero Mike Miller, who tipped us off to this in the first place.
