    See the big picture. NCAA is totally corrupt. They follow the money. Hodges likely not approved since no bribe was offered.

    Nembhard's is the one that really ticks me off, because he had the same plan of transferring and sitting a year before the extra eligibility was announced.

    Montverde is a private prep school in Orlando. Nembhard is from Canada...

    Unless you're a citizen, getting in and out of the country is kinda hard during a pandemic

    Maybe, maybe not - but Tucker will be ready, you can take that to the bank...

    Crossroads against IU announced for 11:30 am. That's an early buzz and early brunch.

    You made those two things sound mutually exclusive...

    I was curious about this so looked it up. There are 48 D-1 teams who have yet to play a game this season (not including Ivy League). Teams of note are: DePaul, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Temple, UMass, Vermont, St. Bonaventure, New Mexico, Colorado St, Hawaii, Indiana St, Missouri St, Milwaukee, & IUPUI. There are 21 D-1 teams besides Butler who have played just one game. Teams of note are: Florida St, Utah, Vanderbilt, Loyola-Chicago, & Fresno St.

    I just now looked at our upcoming schedule. In a matter of 6 days, Butler will play St. John's, Nova, and IU. That's a pretty rough schedule to return to action to.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see some of these teams bubble-up together if they need to get to a minimum number of games to make the tournament - Temple, UMass, St. Bonaventure, Vermont - could do a round robin bubble up in the NE somewhere.

    Gotta bank some wins—ending with Nova and Creighton is brutal and a road game at Xavier before that.

    With this team, every game other than maybe DePaul will be a tough go. We're just not very good. Looking at that schedule just reminds me, especially with no Bo and no Scoob...just reminds me to allow this to be a growing season. Don't pay too much attention to Ws and Ls, because there will not be many Ws, but look at the development of Harris, Tate and Coles.

    I agree but I also think that outside of Nova/Creighton the Big East is a crapshoot. Sure, we could finish 10/11 but we could also finish 3/4. We could easily not win a game outside of Hinkle. But...

    Before reality sets in, can we at least hold out hope that we emerge toward the top of the second tier in the BE and make the tourney? I mean, the Browns are making the playoffs this year, right?

    Ew...just realized IF we play, we have IU this weekend...about two hours before the Ole Miss-LSU kickoff. There aren't two programs out there I despise worse than IU hoops and LSU football. That's gonna be a rough afternoon...emotional roller coaster. Liquid shall be flowing at casa de willis.

    Can’t believe we play Nova and IU this week and I haven’t thought about either game for more than 10 seconds.

    This year sucks.

    Well, that also comes at the same time as the Big Ten Championship game. Two big events in downtown Indy.
