    Butler coming off an UGLY outing at Providence will take on Seton Hall who dominated X on Wednesday.

    At least both of these teams have lost to Providence...if there is ANY silver lining to this game.

    And as true as cold in winter, Aaron Thompson is "questionable" for tomorrow's game. As many have said, temper the expectations for W's this season and focus on improvements.

    But hey, at least it's Nate Fowler's birthday today, so that should get this board lively!

    Happy New Year to all of you and I hope you had a great and safe NYE and that 2021 is better than 2020

    I am looking for growth and improvement from the freshmen. Everything else is gravy.

    It should be a determined group on Saturday. It will be interesting to see how they respond. It's also their first of many games being exposed to tremendous size underneath. With the way the Bryces have been struggling to finish, I hope we have something planned for how to deal with this.

    Has anyone seen a line on this game yet? I’m guessing BU +10.5?

    Until the upper classmen who are playing take ownership of this team, expect more inconsistent play. Leadership and accountability come from within, whether by example or vocally. This is essential and even with any of LJ's shortcomings, it's not on him.

    This just ruined New Year's Day for a big chunk of the board, lol.

    Really just want to see better, more consistent play from everyone. Not worried about winning the game.

    I'm not worried about winning the game either. Pirates should win by 26-28, maybe more.

    I hate to bet against Butler. Maybe, I exaggerated a little ... would you take Butler at -16?:)

    Yes 17 is a lot in the Big East. (16 would be a push)

    I'd probably lay 13-14 and that's about it. We will get killed inside so unlike Wednesday, we need have shots falling from deep. There were some good looks in the second half the other night...need more of that because they'll dominate the paint.

    You’re not a real butler fan if you didn’t wear a party hat all day.

    Hall by 10 seems like easy money.

    But I thought Clemson would stomp OSU tonight, and instead Clemson acted like they were allergic to defense.

    Dude...I was on Ohio St alllll day. Then my board dropped it to -4 out of nowhere and I fell for it. Jumped on Clemson. Big mistake.

    I'm surprised this isn't higher but Vegas doesn't overreact in most cases....still if people do fade Butler, it's a good time to fade IMO.
