    Always good times in Oxford. One of the better post-game party vibes I remember from college. Save for that time in Wisconsin where we almost died at a biker bar at 2AM. Fun times.

    I would be cool if we could hire Miami's former HC, Jack Owens, as an assistant coach. But that would require the obvious

    I work about 15 miles from Oxford, drive there at least once a week for lunch. Pretty awesome little town.

    My wife is from Trenton, another small town close to Oxford. I love it over there in southwest Ohio.

    Trenton? Small world. I’m from Fairfield and now practicing in my home town. Lot of family in Trenton. Fun fact: when they opened the Miller Coors brewery there you could get 30 racks of high life for 7.99.

    Haha, that's awesome. We drive through Fairfield whenever we take I-74 to/from Indy. I always find it interesting that 70 and 74 are basically identically timed routes to get to Trenton from Indy, at least from the west side. Love me some Jungle Jim's, too!

    All I remember is that it was a liquor store and my friends told me it was really popular and I'd be fine. Once I made the purchase a dude approached me, said he was a cop, showed me his badge, asked for my ID and when I gave it, he started laughing at me. Then yucked it up with the LQ worker and they took it, pinned it behind the counter where I saw plenty of other Michigan IDs. He then wrote me a ticket and told me to get the F on before he hauls me to jail for a public intoxication.

    19 years under Izzo. Now, decides to leave. He's had tons of job offers throughout the years. I wonder what finally made him change his mind

    From a Butler perspective, sucks for LaVall. He would have made a good coach up there. Wish he didn't have to wait until April 1st to do anything

    I order a whole bunch of plants from a place in Fairfield!

    My Oxford remembrances were clouded by legendary 3/2 beer. Early 70's I was finishing up a degree from Ball State. The boys and I....not being of age yet...loaded up my '69 Roadrunner and headed for Oxford....2 hours away...every Friday night. If you were 18 you could guzzle 3/2 beer. The Purity and Boars Head bars were right across the street from each other near campus. For the un-initiated...3/2 beer was little more than water with a slight smell of hops. You could drink all night....and we did....and the only thing we did was flood the privy. Good times though. Ohio axed the 3/2 brew shortly after our graduation. The Purity and Boars Head were absolutely legendary in the day!

    Spent many weekends doing KC turnarounds in the early 70s. Morons would fork out 20 bucks a case for Coors back then. At a cost of $3.59 a case, it was always a profitable trip. I had VW bug and could fit 18-21 cases in the little gem. Liquor stores finally got wise to that venture. I remember a frat guy once requesting a case of Olympia so bumped up the cost to $25...LOL

    F074F328-804D-4658-8B86-8E4DF666631B.jpeg Not surprising, but unfortunate for them, it was essentially a Butler staff. Makes me truly appreciate what we have now.

    Evansville just hired a new AD, so it makes sense. Lickliter was brutal there.

    Very late in firing season. Feel for Thomas Jackson and Brandon Crone.

    Lickliter likely will call it quits, but the other two I’m sure want to continue in the coaching ranks!!!
    Don’t remember if other Butler guys are down there or not.

    So What about the players and the May 1 deadline to transfer and play next year? Hopefully if they decide to transfer now they can get a waiver from the NCAA

    The guy hasn't been good since his Marquette days and even then it was questionable
