I actually like Butler, since they are one of the few decent colleges in Indiana, so in no way is this post meant to bash Butler.
- Butler has lost 3 games in the HORIZON LEAGUE. If it was Big 11, that would be okay. But the Horizon League. Seriously...
- They only have 2 top 50 wins, against Xavier and UAB. Penn State, another bubble team, has four Top 50 wins.
- An SOS of 99 isn't that tough
While I am hoping they get into the tournament, their current play makes me think they won't. Unless they crush Davidson, I don't see them making the tournament if they don't win the Horizon. And if they do, it will be by the grace of God. They are a young team, so I'll be expecting a lot of them in the future. This year though, it will be close.
