    Butler now 0-6 ATS in the first half. Hop on the train people. Don't care if we're playing a DII team.

    With the way the algorithm works (incorporating preseason expectations) six games into the year, it’s fair to say that one would expect Gtown to a be point or two better given where both teams started.

    Yeah a lot of people do, especially in their 20s and 30s, it's a huge "reunion" type night plus hardly anyone has to work the next day and for some reason, enjoy soaking up their intense hangovers with dry turkey.

    I'm typically with the family and we tend to just go have a nice dinner. Not to say we won't get silly but it's different sipping on wine than seeing how many fb shots you can down in an hour.

    A lot of single people do it too...see if that can get that crack at that chick they never had a chance with back in the day but now they have some coin and she'll be wasted and may find him cute. It's a big time chase night. Not quite to the level of New Year's but...not too far off for the youngins.

    I am glad those days are behind me. Albeit some wild times...usually they ended pretty poorly and the itch was never worth the scratch.

    I don't drink, but I may have to start if Butler finds a way to lose tonight . . .

    Taking a glass-half-full approach, you could argue this game is a win-win regardless of the outcome.

    If we win, perhaps the players gain some confidence, maybe the coaching staff discovers an offensive set, we carry that momentum into future performances and resurrect our season.

    If we lose, LaVall is done, whether it's at the end of the season or before he gets back to Indy. There's no scenario where he survives a four-game skid of the worst displays of basketball culminating in a loss to a DII team. We go through a season or two of rebuilding, but our new, competent coach at least has us played Butler Basketball again.

    We can dream.

    Second time in 24 hours you’ve made me lol. (First was the post about rats feasting on your carcass in the gutter.) A dispirited, desolate, demoralized Willis is as funny as heck. Only thing on here that lifts my spirits—tip of the hat Willis!

    88 has to be the highest a butler team has been in kenpom 6 games into the season in awhile.

    We usually win some crucial games to start the year, but I may be wrong. Either way 88 is a long way from ncaa tournament

    Not sure why we are featuring a player who has played 5 minutes this week. I don’t care if the love doesn’t get spread around—feature your best player from the last game.

    Didn’t we lose our exhibition that year?

    Hi. I’m in Iowa. That’s central time. The Game is at 8 for me. I used that time since it illustrates my other point - it’s after dinner and when everyone will be out at the bars.

    If we’re being technical, I should have said 6, because that’s when the game takes place in Las Vegas where it is being played.

    Yeah but exhibition games don’t get factored in and I think non d1 games do not either

    I bet the bars tonight are bros and wanna-be bros with few women.
