    I don't take it that way. There's a model that's been built by the NBA and it would make sense for the BE to at least research it to understand if it could work. Basketball still drives the recruiting bus for the entire university.

    "The Butler Bulldogs compete in the NCAA Division I and are well known for their successful men's basketball teams."

    Brennan has an interesting article in The Athletic today. He mentions an example of the BE having a "mini-bubble" in Chicago and BU, Creighton, DePaul & Marquette could play. Each team plays against each other once (3 games total per session & team).

    If Val Ackerman could figure out how to do that safely for 8-12 long weekends, the BE could schedule conference play from January-March 2021. No, it's not ideal - but it could be doable & keep the conference on national TV.

    rematch of the 2010 Regional Final to go to the Final Four!

    (Fun Fact - that 2010 Regional Final was the only time Butler and Kansas State have played)
