    I think Christian is our best cutter. We need that. He’s close. He’s really close. He’s just not *quite* there yet. I want him getting 25 mins against brown and Presbyterian.

    How exactly is MTSU a sub horizon league level team? They are down once Kermit left but calling them basically a low major is a wild take.

    There’s a certain satisfaction watching paint dry.... a sense of accomplishment. So it’s more exciting.

    I defend Fowler all the time, so I guess it's only fair I say that I thought he was one of the few who had a poor game today. It had nothing to do with his jump shots though, which I was in favor of him continuing to take. I just checked the +/- stats (since even when I think he plays poor he somehow seems to do well there) and he was +7, which is pretty awful given where everyone else was. Brunk was +24 in virtually the same number of minutes. Butler's scoring trio in this one were all +27 or +28.

    I think I started that by saying he averages 8 a game. That was asterisked as my immediate reaction following the Ole Miss game where he scored 3 points. Would love to be proven wrong, and he's shot the lights out so far in Atlantis. Still think he needs to be a more aggressive driver, because he's not bad at it, and not many players average double figures as a spot up shooter. But if he can hit contested looks consistently like he did tonight, he just may. There's just not much of a sample size of it so far in his career, and little more worried about BE defenses.

    I completely forgot to ask coach about it post game, but this is the first blowout since Hastings has been participating 100% in practice. His lack of playing time at the end seems a pretty strong indication that they aren’t ready to burn the redshirt option yet.

    I too wish he took it to the basket more and create. His jump shot form is perfect and he is fairly athletic. Because of what this kid went thru and how hard he had to work to get to this spot he is my fsvorite Dawg. So I’m partial.

    Since he made the trip can he still be redshirted?

    This game available anywhere to rewatch? I recorded the game on ESPN2 before leaving the house yesterday only to find it was actually on ESPNU.

    Is it possible to see both Hastings and Golden with a redshirt? We will be 10 deep without them this year once Tucker becomes eligible. I think that would be very exciting for next year. We loose Fowler and PJ but think about the incoming. Nze, a more experienced Hastings and Golden and a freshman (what's his name, Battle?) who should be ready to contribute right away.

    Just search ahead in the coming days. They often rebroadcast games.

    That's what I would do, assuming the coaching staff doesn't have buyer's remorse on either of them. I'm a huge fan of redshirts. I'd rather get a player at ages 20-23 than 19-22. In order to do that though you need depth, and Butler has that this year. Golden has been injured since May, so I doubt the staff really even knows what they have there yet. I'm sure they would like to actually see a few weeks of full out practice from him before they make a decision. Butler could use an actual PF on the roster, so if he's good enough to contribute right away I doubt they redshirt him. I'm not sure what Hastings is going to bring that isn't already on the roster unless he's simply better than guys like Baddley, and it's hard for me to believe he's that good already as a freshman.

    I found it on the WatchESPN but good lord that APP is garbage. Buffering every 15 seconds. I dont love Butler Basketball enough to sit through that kind of torture. I'll see if I can find is elsewhere.

    Unless a decision already had been made, do you think you would have gotten a meaningful answer?
