    Huge loss for SH. He was their second best player and only other dependable offensive threat.

    And they did not look like a team that should be ranked the rest of that game, after he went out early.

    I have to admit: It took me some time to get used to kids being in bars after moving to a state where that's allowed, and I never take my own with me. But I also don't get upset about anyone else doing it.

    Some of my fondest memories of growing up in Ohio are of going to the Inbetween Tavern before Reds and Bengals games.

    Montana kids are allowed in bars and breweries of course breweries close at 8 and kids aren’t allowed in bars past ten or so

    Works for me since I manage one and have a 15 month old

    Montana’s culture has always been this
    Recreate outdoors in the mountains and enjoy it afterwards with your family anywhere you please

    Delaware just gave Nova all they could handle. Delaware looks really good.

    But they said something that scares me: Nova has ZERO scholarship seniors. They have no one signed to come in next year, because everyone will be back. WOW. I didn't realize they were that loaded.

    Seton Hall gets smoked, Xavier gets cut down, Nova struggles...Gtown looked good. I mean, we have a real shot to do big things come conference time. Words I never thought I'd utter. Let's get this ish done.

    Seton without Sandro M. (won't attempt his last name) for two months will struggle - even if Powell is fine - so by then they will be out of the championship derby. We are the highest ranked BE team on both TeamRankings (#16) and Kenpom (#12) closest BE team to us is Nova - and they are not that close - although they will still be the guy to beat to get to the top slot. As an aside, we are behind Purdue in both measuring systems - I expect we will be a 2.5 point underdog come next Saturday. If we can pull that one out it will be a magnificent preseason - let's do it...

    What I worry about with Nova is that is simply a bad match up IMO. Only because we allow some pretty good looks from 3 and have faced teams that have shot meh to this point, but we all know they will not. They're always strong from deep and are again this season. So really, they are the one concerning team as far as match ups go. Which duh, but any of the others have the flaws and have struggled. Things can change in a hurry but we should be a top 3 team come closing time.

    This is going to be one fascinating BE season. If the Dawgs can improve finishing around the basket they could win the BE. The talent, depth, experience and defense is there. No other BE team has all these qualities.

    Butler is the best team in the Big East right now. And it’s barely arguable. Hall is clearly not better. Xavier isn’t close (right now). Nova may become better, and I agree they may be a match up problem,but right now they’re not good enough defensively to win the league. Call me nuts, but Marquette scares me more than anyone else.

    Beating Purdue would solidify Butler’s status as Big East favorites going into the new year.

    Purdue will definitely be a tough test. Losing would not diminish BU's resume that much. Marquette is no more scary than anyone else in the BE IMO, but you could be correct?

    Not so much, if Howard isn’t hitting. Of course, he always seems to have strong games against us. It’s bad enough when he’s draining shots from 22 feet away, but it really bugs me when the refs constantly reward him for propelling himself into the defender on drives to the basket.

    Nova has Kansas next weekend in Philly. We're going to find out if they're for real or not. Last year's game was a blast to watch.
