    If anyone is looking for a little bracket pool action, I've run my company's pool for over 20 years. $5 a bracket, 5 brackets for $20 special. Points are seed x round for each correct pick. Have a few Butler alums and all are welcome. You can ship payment via paypal to butlergoalie@gmail.com. Message me for more details. Entry link is here:

    I'm already so over the Middle Tennessee talk on all the sports shows.

    Can I just say Middle Tennessee State should've been ranked a lot higher than a 15 seed last year? :(

    And according to everyone on ESPN, they should have been a 3-seed this year.

    If they'd have needed an at-large bid, some of those same guys would have said they didn't have enough quality wins.

    And they would have been right both times.

    Quite a conundrum for them. Most of those guys knew that MTSU belonged in the tournament but it went against their whole mantra of getting "top 50 wins".

    Creighton and Louisville now go.e but Baylor, Wisco, Purdue, and Michigan remain. A lot of bad matchups remain for us. luckily wont play them until at least the final four!

    We've got UNC and the winner of UCLA-UK in our region and you're talking about tough matchups in the Final Four? Lolololol. Our region didn't blow up. Chalk City. That's a killer path to Phoenix

    You got to play them. In 2010 we went through the gauntlet. We can do it again.

    We also had a hall of fame caliber coach and two NBA players. But who knows, maybe we do again.

    Maybe maybe not on the HOF, yes on NBA players, but a bigger, better, more experienced and well balanced TEAM.
    Butler can beat you a myriad of ways. Kethan, Kelan, Kamar and Chrabs can get to the rack....Nate and Cat can get close looks too. TLew and Woodson knock down open j's. McD might give us a 3 or a steal when we really need one and Bads can do the same. All about matching up on the floor....matchups. Can you guard this guy? Can you score on this guy? Besides, what better way to win it all than taking down 3 consecutive blue bloods? Wishful thinking..probably. Positive thinking...certainly.

    Wasn't Murray State the only lower seed we played beyond the first round? Wisconsin was a 4, Florida was a 2, Pitt was a 1, Syracuse was a 1, and Kansas State was a 2.

    Honestly, Murray State played the best game out of any team we played in those runs, pre-Final Four.

    Honestly... I've always maintained Butler got a very lucky draw. They missed Vandy's 7'0 center Bc they were upset by Murray State. Then they got 1 Cuse who was down Onuwaku. The two days later they get a KState team that less than 48 hours earlier had to go to 2OT to beat X. For as tough as every bracket is, Butler got some breaks.

    Then in the FF they get a 5 Michigan State who was down Kalin Lucas, the top PG in the Big Ten. The first team at full strength they played was Duke.
