    I don't think Dayton is very useful, but someone like Illinois makes sense for a lot of reasons not the least being budgetary. Lots of teams are going to be trying to find ways to fill schedules with bus-able nonconference games after the covid revenue plunge

    This would make a lot of sense. Power conference opponent less than 2 hours away in a state where a W gives you a bit of recruiting ammo to use. Butler recruited Illinois’ best player last year. Would have been nice to have him.

    Crossroads Classic is a blast and nothing sweeter than walking out of BLF with a W. I know the IU fan base doesn’t see the need to participate, but not sure why Purdue or ND would want to pull out.

    20 Conference games, schools would much rather have a winnable home game instead of a neutral floor game you could lose.

    Dayton, Cincinnati, Louisville and Illinois all are in that ~ 2 hour bus ride.

    Go an extra hour or so and you adding Columbus, Lexington, Chicago, and Ann Arbor. Some quality competition.

    In some non-Covid or race relations news, it looks like we'll open our season against St. Francis (PA).

    The only question is "why isn't Hinkle no. 1 on your list?".

    Hey, on the bright side, a first round game means Butler could get another BET win.

    Do a couple big east tourney wins get is Into the NIT?

    Of course we just win the whole damn thing finally and it’s not even a concern

    With the NIT only having 16 teams this year, I don't know if Butler makes that field. If the NIT were held in Indiana, Butler could have an appeal that it is "local" and could get to a site quickly.

    Norlander did a good article about the NIT and some crazy scenarios a few days ago:

    I wonder if any teams would decline their NIT invite?

    Having no game this week with the taste of the last two...that sucks. Twiddle thumbs and watch some other action.
