    Well, I'll be on the road tomorrow to DC for the game Saturday... GT is playing better of late, but hope that a week of rest vs two games since we last played has us sharp and them dragging a little. Need this one or St John's games to have a real chance moving forward... Both would set us up for needing to only beat who we should the rest of the way. Not a given for sure this year!

    5-3 and a win in the BE tourney we're in this year. 6-2 we're set. After the next two we'll know what to root for; improvement in play for next year, or still a chance at the tourney. I expect to split them and keep us in limbo as to whether we can steal a win elsewhere and then hope we catch fire in the BE Tourney.

    I'll be the guy in Butler gear 4 rows up behind our bench, I'm not a little man, so ya should see me ... ;) Say howdy if you're there.

    IU loses again, it is always good when they lose.

    Except during seasons in which we lose to them. *ducks*

    Agreed. I get that IU fans are delusional on IU's place in the basketball world and most here are unhappy about how IU gets so much more media attention than they "deserve," but I don't see how it is good for the Dawgs (as far as getting into the Tournament, which is, very arguably, the most important criteria) if IU implodes and the wheels fall off.

    Well if they keep losing, there's another spot available in the tournament for us regardless of losing to them they could lose the remaining games and they probably still wont fall out of the top 125 rankings and a neutral court loss by 3 still wouldn't be the loss to keep us out of the tournament. I say let them keep free falling out to open spots!

    Lol. I hadn't thought of it in that regard. There's some merit there, but it's still going to depend way more on how well we play. We will need to win some games to leapfrog over teams. All our competition isn't going to sink lower.

    Plus, it's just one loss. Even if IU collapses and misses the tournament, a neutral court loss at the buzzer to IU isn't going to be looked at as a bad loss.

    Crazy that even after the trainwreck that was January, the PAC 12 and mid-majors are so bad a whole this year that Butler still completely controls its destiny. Play well in February, and March can still be fun.

    An IU loss is almost as good as a Butler win any day. Ditto for Xavier.

    On the good side if they can sneak into the last 4 in, they would probably get quite a bit of support with Dayton being so close. Here's to hoping.

    I wouldn’t be opposed to that - I’d go to that game.

    I'm on there all the time; how does that work for a replay? I've only ever seen live streams and I'm not about to get up at 3am to watch

    So you are saying it is a good year.

    Hulu Live offers 7-day free trials. There is DVR capabilities with it. So you could try that.

    I actually have canceled Directv for Hulu Live a couple of months ago and have really enjoyed it.

    They won't be a .500 team by the end of the season.

    Interesting. I would try that but I don't think Hulu Live gets the regional Fox Sports Network channels. Am I missing something?

    I cancelled Uverse this year for Hulu and stream everything. I get all sports and networks. Pretty much the same as I had with Uverse. Saves me $120 month.
    You need a high speed internet connection, which I have. Have not had any issue to date with picture quality and access. FYI
