  1. Hey, thanks for putting Butler as a four seed. I'm curious to know why you think they're deserving of a four. You and somebody else put them there, and that's the highest out of all of the brackets in the bracket matrix. So yeah, what do you see there? Personally I think they're much better than a 7 seed, and they'll get either a 6 or 5 if they win tonight. But hey, a four would be great!
