    Since the season is going very well and better then many predicted, myself included.
    I am curious what everyone is thinking will be the end of year record for the team along with how they end up in big East regular season, big east tourney, and NCAA
    I got:

    22-9 regular season
    Tied for second in big East regular season
    Lose big East tourney championship (yes we finally make some progress in msg)
    4 seed earning tied for highest seed for a butler team
    Make it to elite eight

    If I’m wrong any of you that want to come to Missoula, Montana I will buy make sure you are set up with huge amount of Kettlehouse beer the whole time you are hear.
    Happy holidays everyone

    I think 11-7 BE record. I would like to think we split Purdue/Baylor. So that's 23-8 for me before the BET.

    Anyway you look at it we will be no worse than 20-11. My guess is 23-8.

    30-0. If we’re gonna make guesses, let’s go crazy!

    But seriously, I think 2 losses going in to BE play, 10-8 in conference (should be better, but will have one bad loss), 20-10 going in to BET. Then reach finals of tourn, and end up with a 5 seed. Make the elite 8.

    I’ll one up willis and go 12-6 BE. Although I m not impressed with conference foes, winning road games in BE is yet to be seen.
    I will predict we go 3-0 vs Prov.
    BE tournament tough. We beat Prov.
    Great thread.
    Thanks for asking.
    I’m in whitefish twice a year.
    Save your $.
    These Dawgs need to eat. KB HB & McD gonna show em how!!

    The season ends in April with the Dawgs hoisting the the NCAA Championship Trophy while the song "One Shining Moment" plays in the background. Three months later, LJ is offered the HC position for the LA Lakers. Nuff said. Zingy zingy!

    Say the team finishes 9-9 in conference and gets a 5 seed in the tourney
    Would you all consider the season successful with how we have started??

    It'd probably depend on what they did in the tourney.

    Are you referring to a 5 seed in the Big East tournament, or the NCAA tournament? Because if you're referring to NCAA's, I would be very surprised if they got a 5 going 9-9.

    Miss st was 12-1 against the 100th rated non conference schedule last year and then went 10-8 in the 4th rated conference and got a 5 seed.

    Butler went 12-1 against the 103rd rated non conference schedule this year and the Big East the third rated conference.

    So, a 5 at 9-9 isn’t crazy if they win a game or two in the BET, but a 6 or 7 would be more likely.

    March 14, I bet a buddy of mine the following. Butler would have a top 25 recruiting class, make and win 1 game in the NCAA tournament and finish in the top 3 of the BE. A few on the text chain asked why I was confident this year, here is what I wrote.
    "Nova is champs
    MU loses Howard, but adds good recruits. Wojo is nothing special
    Creighton is caught up in the rec/pay mess and it will cost them another asst coach or worse
    GU’s best player could go to NBA
    SJ’s is going to have a lot of turnover & Mullins is not great
    Who knows w/ Xavier. Good recruits, but Steele might be worse than Jordan
    SH - could be good again
    Prov - Diallo to NBA, team will be good next year.
    BU has so much to figure out, but if the current team returns, they return 76% of points, 78% of rebounding, 76% of ast. All will be the most of any team in BE next year. IF, IF, IF they improve their defensive efficiency & show some grit down low (Bruno & Nze), I’m banking on a three game improvement over last year, which would be sole possession of third this year."
    Much of what I wrote about other teams did not materialize, but my assumption that we returned too much not to make positive gains. My prediction of 10-8 might have been too conservative.
    Based on competitiveness of BE this year, thinking 13-5 or 12-6.

    Point taken. Would agree that at 9-9 it probably would take two wins in the BEast tournament to have a shot at that seed. 10-8 would most likely need 1. Not sure about 11-7, but I would take the point of view that if you can't win at least 1 game in the BET after going 11-7, you probably don't deserve a 5.
