    I can’t believe Butler is considered the worst team in the field. And by 20 ranks at that. 4 of these teams are quad 1. 3 of these teams are quad 2.

    I think as Hinkle implied earlier, our betting lines (and their movement) implies we are in the 50-60 range. A real great test. Would be awesome to get 2/3.

    Would imagine we’ll be priced as a 60th-ish team by the opening book lines and as a 45-50th-ish team by the closing line against TN. If that’s right, the line will open at around TN -8.5 and close at around TN -7.5.

    Maybe not a bad thing to be considered the worst team in the field: nothing to lose & our guys should be plenty motivated.

    I'd consider 1-2 a success.

    If the TN line is under 10 I'm throwing my coin at TN.

    Looks like a ton of opportunity to me to get ourselves moving up the rankings

    Let's say it's Butler at -9. Tennessee could be rusty - and their shameful loss to Colorado gives me hope. Can't wait to see the ML.

    I wouldn’t bet against Matta in this environment. Butler has the defense, depth, and coaching to exceed expectations. I fully expect Butler to beat the Vols and take 2 of 3. Go Big East!​

    I just wish we were at full strength for the dances in the Bahamas. It's a shame we are not because I believe we could make some hay. Either way it'll be a good experience and some really good teams down there.

    Gotta start trash talking to all the Vols fans. Oh that’s right, there are none.

    Although with the choke job on the ‘Cocks on Saturday, I think they are finally going to start paying attention to basketball. I’d love nothing more than to lay a double-digit L on them. Lots of opportunities for quality wins.

    But either way, it’s been much more enjoyable watching this team. Win, lose or draw the trajectory of this program has been righted.
