    This is Butler Basketball. I care more about rooting for players who embody my values, and the values I love about Butler more than I love winning.

    I have total freedom to root for one of or even all of Duke or Kansas or Kentucky. They do a lot more winning than Butler does so if all I care about is that, I’d have to be an idiot to root for Butler because it’s not best fulfilling my purpose.

    The name of this site is ButlerHoops.Com. We’re here to talk about Butler Basketball. Butler Basketball is more about what happens off the court that’s on.

    If you don’t care about what kind of kids these are, you’re an idiot too.

    I don't think these points need to be mutually exclusive. I think Butler can compete for Big East championships and have the goal of final fours and still have a classy program. There's nothing unclassy about having players who have an edge to them or who play physical, or even taking a chance on a couple of non-choir boys along the way, as long as the players understand they represent not just the Butler basketball team, but the entire Butler community and what it stands for as well.

    Totally agree. But I’m not willing to see the team sacrifice the program values to win more games.

    I think we all want them to win as many games as possible, but the people who get it want them to win it while maintaining the integrity of what we stand for.

    Michael Jordan said you always miss 100% is the shots you don’t take. The NCAA can’t vacate a title unless you win one first. The moral of this story is cheat your brains out and hope you don’t get caught hosting a BBQ like Bruce Pearl.

    But Jordan said, "Today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth," right?

    To be fair, though, it is possible that Michael Jordan has said those words too. So I should have added the parenthetical (internal quotation omitted).

    The larger point, though, is that the concept of “Program Principles” only works if your program does suck donkey. Youngstown State might be a bastion of virtue, but we would never know or give a crap because they are terrible at basketball.

    Might have been thinking about this MJ quote:

    I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. Michael Jordan

    Micheal Scott was the boss in The Office who once said what many on this board seem to do typing:
    Sometimes I'll start a sentence and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way. Micheal Scott :p
