    Nope. Motor mouth Quinn Buckner. Worst color guy I've ever heard.

    I stand corrected. Second round game. The point remains that the run to the finals greatly enhanced Mack's draft stock.

    I don't know if I would say "greatly enhanced." It definitely helped, but remember Shelvin and Gordon played on the USA under 19 team that won the gold at the FIBA world championships in New Zealand in 2009. Also, the summer before his last season at Butler he was working out with Chauncey Billups and was picked to be on the college select team to help prepare team USA for the World Championships. He was playing against Rondo, Drose, and some other big time talent. I remember specifically reading an article where Billups gave him pretty high praise.

    Do you happen to have a link to anything written by anybody in early February or before that said he was going to the NBA?

    Mack had a rough season (compared to expectations of being preseason POY) and was only named to the All Horizon Second Team for the season. Most of the hype around him was tied to that U19 team and Team USA prep. Looking back at the old Yuku board, the HL conference season was full of hot takes.

    Also, I'm glad to see that things never change as a Butler Fan.

    Thank you! Your last 2 posts should be eye opening to the posters in this thread that claim people said Mack or Brad were headed for the NBA early in 2011.

    Edit: my point is, as OP alluded, you never know what will happen with college basketball. Get a big W on saturday and head into the BET with some momentum... who knows!

    I have never seen Sean so emphatic about a dunk. He threw it down harder than Hankens barber.

    He is not to be called poopyball anymore. He is to be referred to as my son. If you want to have his naming rights you can buy them from me for 3 cigarettes.

    I think you are looking for the X board. That's where the degenerate and poorly educated hang out.

    Actually, that is the IU board. The X folks are educated.

    I accept your modification. Point was more about vitriol from the X board.
