    I had a blast talking with Coach Ragland and I hope this article comes out in a way that displays how genuine he appears to be. As far as the podcast idea goes, we did not plan the phone call as a podcast and thus it doesn't really flow in that way nor is the audio quality to standard to post in that medium.

    Great stuff. Ragland really seems like a salt of the earth kind of guy.

    Fantastic article Lukas! I don’t know how long we will be able to hold on to coach Ragland, but he absolutely fits the Butler Way!

    The fact that Ronnie is a big proponent should speak volumes to us.

    We lost absolutely nothing from last year, fortified the staff, picked up a 5th year transfer, added 3 new comers and, knock on wood, get Scoob and JaKobe back along with healthy versions of AT, Bo, Nze and Golden

    I'm just glad we now have another coach on staff that knows what/where to look for on the court when our offense starts getting too predictable for defenses to adjust to, or when we need to try something new especially on plays coming out of timeouts. It certainly sounds like Ragland has experience making an offense that runs efficiently.

    No actual news to report at this time, but the Wisconsin side of things has indicated that Coach O is among the candidates for their open assistant spot. This isn't a very new development as the candidacy rumor has been floating for a week or two. We'll see what happens - I've also heard Sharif Chambliss and Steve Robinson as a couple of their other targets.

    Wait, I thought our assistants stunk? Why would someone want to hire them away?

    I think a lot of people recognize Lowry is a solid assistant while also maintaining our assistants as a group were bad last year. Both are true.

    Do you have knowledge of what the assistants are doing on a day-to-day basis? I'd love to hear what evidence you have to support your claim that EK and Vergollo suck.

    It doesn’t matter what they do on a day to day. They could be doing exactly what they should be doing and just not be good at it.

    I have no clue if they are good or not, but WHAT they are doing has zero to do with HOW GOOD they are at doing it.

    I think his point was none of have a good idea if they’re doing a good job or not. A pretty impossible thing to measure without insider knowledge.

    If Omar doesn't get lured a way before the season, a bench of he and Ragland is pretty damn strong.

    As much as I think it would suck to lose coach O. It’s a good thing for the program to lose coaches to head coaching jobs. Just like when players go to the nba within the program the same thing for coaches moving up and on. IMO it Shows the program is in a good place. Just another selling point when it comes to recruiting.

    I agree that assistant coaches getting head coaching jobs is good. I don't think an assistant coach going to another school as an assistant is a good thing, however.

    Wisconsin hired Sharif Chambliss for the position that Omar Lowery was rumored to be up for.
