Butler was crazy lucky that second year

They had to win the conference tournament on the road (they would not have been an at-large) and their win over Pitt in the second round was really questionable. Hell, ODU should have taken them into OT at least. They played VCU in the Final Four, who definitely should not have made the field to begin with.

I feel like I'm throwing rocks in glass houses a bit, but that team caught a lot of breaks, including one of the worst NCAA tournaments ever.
