    Injuries stink, but are much preferred over suspensions...

    A lot of teams deal with some injuries early in the year Butler is no different than many other programs.

    No, the last 3 or so years have not been normal.

    But really, think about our better players over the last 15 years:

    Did Graves, Green, Campbell, Howard, Shelvin, Gordon, Kelan, Kamar, Kellen, Kam, Marshall, Smith, Chrab, Sean, etc even miss a game? Collectively, maybe a few?

    Rot missed like 3 games.

    Rose missed a season but didn’t miss a game outside of the other four.

    We had such good injury luck for such a long time. It’s swung back hard the other direction.

    He played 87% of our minutes and was efficient at very high usage. Gonna say it wasn’t much of an issue.

    So what's the timeline for everyone (Ali, Thomas and Wilmoth)? Just trying to wrap my head around all these injuries until the next major/random one.

    Don't want to overreact to all this key injuries, but it's going to be much more difficult to be a tourney threat if these guys are going to be out for an extended period of time.

    I have no idea on Thomas. I don’t think anyone knows for sure yet.

    I follow several schools. Multiple schools have fan bases that say the same thing. It’s really not that abnormal.

    As a thought coming from my economist/statistician perspective, if not a Butler phenomenon, but a broader trend, has something changed about NCAA basketball physicality or training to be a catalyst of more (or more extensive) injuries for all teams? Or this all fan perception? Or perhaps just more general misinformation based on perception?

    I think it’s a variety of things including perception.

    That means nothing. You’re probably used to seeing complaints on this because you’re usually on the IU boards, where they complain about everything and search for any explanation possible as to why IU has been an average big ten program for 30 years.

    This board hasn’t complained about injuries in the past and acknowledges Butler had great injury luck the decade prior to the last few years.

    Butler lost 76 player games to injury in 2020-2021. They lost a ton last year as well (don’t have the numbers) due to injuries to Bo, Tate, Thompson, Nze,and others.

    These were objectively abnormal injury years.

    Those years were. The injuries to this point haven’t proven to be that. The injuries to this point are similar to other places around the country. I also follow more than just IU so I have a greater grasp of college basketball than just that.

    We’ll see how this year turns out. If Ali returns in the next few weeks and Thomas in Dec, then perhaps it can be an average injury year, even if Wilmoth is out a while. But as a whole, the last few years have been abnormal and this year is trending that direction considering we have two significant contributors who won’t play at least the first few weeks, and another who may have been material contributor who will be out a while.

    McDermott missed a handful along the way once he started playing.
