    A real coach who runs more than one offensive set would be a start. We probably would have to not finish in the bottom of the Big East, and probably winning games and going to the tourney would help.

    Didn’t, in this same thread, you advocate for Butler to hire Bryce Drew should LaVall leave?

    I understand things from Lavall's side. However, from a BU Alumnus and fan perspective, my appreciation for him would be greatly enhanced if he told the world he isn't going anywhere. He could use this as an opportunity to change the narrative about Butler and, potentially, leverage this from a recruiting perspective. Not doing so, even if he stays, will engender some disappointment within me as it will represent another lost opportunity to move the needle on where this program can be.

    If he leaves, I don't see how you overcome the perception, it would reinforce, any time soon.

    I mentioned it yesterday, all that comes to Brown, other than his procedure to remove the tools from his leg, has been dead silent. Like no new information anywhere or about any schools coming in and making offers. He was a flaming hot topic for a couple weeks leading into Atlanta Eybl then the Butler visit, crickets since.

    So yes, as i said the other day, in my opinion he's waiting for this to wrap up. If it does and LJ is still Butler's head coach, he's ours. In due time he will commit to Butler. If LJ goes to Michigan, he opens back up the recruitment and ends up in the ACC somewhere (prob clemson or GT).

    Maybe he wants LJ to take the job so that he can leave Boston and come back to Butler :)

    Which Fife, Barney or Dane? Personally, I don’t think Barney will leave Mayberry but I could be wrong.

    And why do you think Scooby and Eugene Brown are even considering Butler; I doubt that it has anything to do with the school as others have stated in previous posts.

    If Howard is offered a pro gig than that’s where he is going. Then my wish will come true and Lavall will be gone. It boggles my mind why Collier had given LJ an extension to begin with..... train wreck decision and I’m wondering if Collier has a conflict of interest. I never thought I would ever be rooting for Michigan for anything. GO Blue!!!!!!

    I never said that LJ couldn’t recognize talent or even recruit he just can never seal the deal. Ummm why wouldn’t be the school? Butler is fine institution,great amenities, and beautiful campus. With pessimism about the University it self I question if your a fan. LJ has every reason to be scrutinized but the Butler brand as a whole (University, campus, academics etc) I don’t believe there’s a comparison.

    If LJ would happen to leave, I would really like to hear who you would advocate to be the next head coach. You may have stated it in an earlier post and I just missed it but most of your posts are just saying that you want LJ gone.

    So you think another coaching change would be good for butler? Whether u think Lavall is good or bad the answer would be no

    I have been a season ticket holder for over 30 years, and watched many games prior to that when Theofanis and Sexton were coaching. I have cheered for the University regardless of who the coach is. Butler has always had a problem recruiting what people consider top tier recruits. Like many recruits throughout college basketball, my point was that these perceived top tier recruits come to play for a particular coach. Many on this board have expressed their opinion that if LJ goes, then Scooby and Eugene will look elsewhere and most likely Chuck Harris as well.

    He was pushing for Alford a while back, which tells you all you need to know.

    I'm curious as to whether you think LaVall is a bad coach, or you just don't like his style/system. He is much more like Beilein than Brad or Holtman. Beilein is more of a concepts coach whereas Brad and Chris were more set plays and actions.

    All 3 of them are widely regarded as good coaches. If you think Beilein is a good coach, go back and look at his first 4 years at Michigan. It clearly takes the right players to work in this system. The wrong ingredients make a mess whether you are Beilein or anyone else.
