    Barlow yes if only for his coaching experience. Folks generally under estimate what contributes to effective coaching. It’s more than playing for most. Former players who have training in teaching & coaching + experience include Hahn, Wideman, Marshall, Norad, Stigall, and I’m probably leaving others out.

    I've been writing about this morning, but lemme tell ya....I am thrilled about this hire. By all accounts (and I know a lot of Mountain West guys), he is an outstanding dude and a great coach. Love the hire.

    Worth noting: I try to never post an article until it is officially published by either the person (Ragland in this case) or the program.

    Seems like a strong assistant hire and a logical fit with Utah State having a new coaching staff and Butler with the opening.

    Knows the Midwest.

    I am hoping to talk with Ragland later today and update this piece with quotes :). I try to mostly stick with facts, but I am a firm believer that this is one helluva hire that Butler fans should be thrilled about. Rags is awesome.

    But when is Butler going to start acting like a REAL program?

    From the photo he kind of looks like LJ. I could be way off

    Shhh...don't tell people they are running out of things to complain about! Now, if we could only spend 5 or 6 million more and get the same ROI as Marquette, Georgetown, etc. Oh, wait.

    I mean, this goes a long way in doing that, IMO. This is the type of hire Holtmann made, going outside of the Butler family (or even outside of past colleagues) like he did with Pedon and Schrage.

    Sweet! Glad to get a good one on the bench! Especially if we can get more flow/rhythm on offense. And someone with Midwestern ties for recruiting.
