    Figured I'd start this thread. Please offer up any additions/corrections you may find.

    I believe I recall reading there are 18 home games (presumably including 2 exhibition games) next season in the season ticket renewal letter, so I'm running with that assumption below. There were 13 non-conference regular season games last season, 4 of which were part of a "Qualifying Regular-Season Multiple-Team Event" (including the non-bracketed home game), which only counts as 1 game towards the scheduling maximum (27 games + 1 MTE). So whether or not one of the home games is another non-bracketed game could alter the total number of games on the schedule. For now I'll assume a non-bracketed home game of some sort, which would mean 13 non-conference games again. I think that makes all the math work.

    Actually, the regular starting lineup had a normal sized backcourt. But, on senior night, they started a lineup with 6'8", 6'10", 6'10", 7'2", and "7'6" just for the fun of it.

    Hey thanks. I like your mascot, too.

    I am planning a road trip to Indy for the game. I have never been to Hinkle Fieldhouse and this is someplace I have wanted to visit for years. I am also a fan of Butler, going back to 2002 when Butler was snubbed from the NCAAT. UCI had 25 wins in 2001 and was snubbed, so I commiserated with Butler. In the early 2000's, with the explosion of cable sports channels, I was able to see some Butler games on TV. Then, when livestreaming started to take off, I watched Butler games on the Horizon Network. I was a fan of Lickliter's later teams and I followed the development of Brad Stevens's teams. I would tell people to watch out for Butler in the next couple years with the young group of players (Howard, Hayward, Mack, and Nored) and a great coach. Then, Butler went to the championship twice in two years, which I still think is the greatest accomplishment I have seen in college basketball. So, I am really looking forward to this game.

    I plan on it. I am bringing my elderly father along for the trip. Neither of us have ever been to Indy. We are driving up from Austin.

    That's not when I was expecting. I like that this game will come after the annual Christmas break tune-up games we always play after the Crossroads. Probably not ideal to head into BE play immediately coming off of such a tough road game though.

    Also just realized there's some chance we'll play Florida twice this year.

    The only reason I like it that late means 1) Their students won't be there and 2) Tucker will get another tournament level game before conference season starts to get acclimated

    I only like the Florida game after Christmas if the Big East cuts Butler a little slack and doesn't make em face two of Villanova/Xavier/Providence in the first three games, like they have the last few years.

    Would have been Caraher until he transferred in-conference. Now the Bulldogs get him twice a year.
