    Nothing like getting the least interesting team in the entire Big 12!

    The Battle 4 Atlantis is going to be fun to watch. Facing the National Champions, Bates vs. NC State, Eric Hunter Jr. vs Rudi Williams could be just a few of the headlines for Butler.

    Some of these matchups are hilariously one sided - I mean Georgetown/Texas Tech (!!)...can't wait to watch the Hoyas score 35 points in a game.

    If I had my druthers, I would have gone: Baylor - Creighton, Kansas - Villanova, Texas Tech - UConn, Texas - Xavier, Providence - TCU (stays the same), Butler - Iowa State, SH - OSU, Marquette - OU, St. John's - WVU, KSU - Georgetown.

    I think if you are trying to match like teams talent-wise, Iowa State or OSU would have been much better for Butler.

    A win is a win and if it’s against a team in a conference which is considered the best it’s all good. I know it’s not the big resume game but to throttle K State I think will pay off just as much as a close game with Iowa St. I’m just excited too watch this team. Side note …. Half way thru a bottle of Woodford on the beach in Santa Rosa, FL. 82 degrees with not a cloud in the sky. Go Dawgs

    Oh I don’t care from a resume standpoint. We don’t need it and this is actually probably best from a scheduling standpoint for us. Our schedule is too hard at this point with the Atlantis tourney and 21 conference games, minimum. Strategically, I’m a proponent of going mostly cupcake-city in the non-con, honestly.

    I’m just saying that as a fan looking for interesting games, this is as bad as it could’ve gone.

    Curiosity Question. I recall that the Gavitt line-up is typically announced ~mid/late June. Since BU is in the Battle for Atlantis, will BU get a Gavitt game or be excluded? To Hinkle's point, given the known schedule to date, BU's non-con schedule is NOT a cakewalk. If BU adds a Gavitt ROAD game, you are beginning to see a very challenging non-con schedule even with the Coaching/Player upgrades. I would concur with Hinkle that resume building in non-con for BU would have a very limited return come NCAA selection time.

    Most years it's been announced somewhere between late April to mid-May. The last two years the announcement came out later given the uncertainty created by Covid. I think we'll probably hear something soon.

    I have no inside information, but I expect Butler to play this year. Part of the original deal with the Big Ten was that each Big East team would play at least six games over the eight years of the agreement. Butler's only had four games, with one being scheduled but cancelled, going into the last year of the agreement.

    Creighton and DePaul are the only two Big East teams with six games already. Georgetown, Villanova and Xavier join Butler with only having four, so I expect those four to each get a game. St. John's, Seton Hall, Marquette and Providence each have had five games and Connecticut has had none. I think the other four Big East entries will come from that group.

    Also three of Butler's four Gavitt Games have been at home. I figure the Gavitt Game will likely be a road game.

    Since I was already looking at it, more on the Gavitt Games.

    Each Big Ten team was expected to play a minimum of four games in the series when the original agreement was made and this is the last year. Michigan State has only played twice (and was scheduled to in the cancelled 2020 games), so they're almost certainly one of the Big Ten entries. Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, Northwestern, Penn State and Purdue have all played three games so far. My guess is those six are also the Big Ten's entries this year and then the last entry comes from the rest of the Big Ten teams, which have all played four games.

    Indiana's already had three home games and OSU has had two, so we probably don't get a Butler at OSU or Butler at Indiana game like I think many of us here might like.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we get Butler at Northwestern or Butler at Penn State.

    Butler has played Northwestern 5 times since the 2008-09 season. Butler and Penn State haven't met since the 1991-92 season, when they actually played each other twice.

    Butler will still have room on the schedule for about 6 "cupcakes", if that's what they want to do.

    Atlantis, as per usual, is stacked.

    I'm hoping for many cupcakes in the non con.

    If it’s Butler AT Penn State when I used to sit courtside and now have moved away from anywhere near State College, I’m going to be so pissed.

    Go to Northwestern. It’s a 3.5 hour bus ride and can be counted as the return game from whatever year Kamar beat them with that elbow J

    Gah—You just know we’ll get sent to Bloomington when IU is on the upswing or maybe OSU for the Holtmann/Thad angle.
