I'm just saying I don't think Butler can really complain about a 8 seed. The highest they might have deserved is a 7 and whats the real difference between that and an 8?
While it isn't Butler's fault they play in an overall weak conference, it is their fault they lost at home in their conference tournament. Davidson lost in a similar situation and didn't even make the tourney. I basically think you can view that BUtler vs. Davidson game as a play out game. The loser wouldn't have made the dance if they both didn't win their tourneys.
