Come on man, you and Bryce are killing Butler in the bracket matrix with your 8 seeds. There's no way they're going to be seeded that low.

I can't speak for CJ, but the reason that I don't see Butler going high is that they have neither a pile of good wins nor one stellar win (Ohio State won't count, because Evan Turner was hurt). Moreover, they have two losses to teams that aren't in the bracket: UAB and Minnesota. The 18-0, minimal losses, and the Ohio St and Xavier wins are what is keeping them as high as a 7 in the consensus.
