    Welp… 102 points in 2 games. That’s disgusting.

    Guys are fighting. Not quitting. Don’t understand why Groce is in the game.

    My goodness Chuck. Not showing much composure. Clank! 4 straight FT missed by Groce. Inexcusable

    Golden apparently needs to teach our team how to shoot FTs smh

    FTs another thing that simply sucks about this team.

    And before anyone celebrates a "closer" loss, aTm is awful.

    Guys, Texas A&M really sucks too. 2 of the worst major conference teams.

    TAMU is Georgetown/DePaul level. Butler will have to fight like hell to not finish 11th in the Big East. Getting Nze healthy will help with that. Maybe.

    Thing is even if he gets "healthy" he won't be but about 50% with that labrum. I don't know if running him out in that condition will really help or not. Tough call.

    Technically they did change and It’s pretty clear that Will Vergollo is America’s best assistant.

    Duncan Robison even said on his podcast that Will helped him a ton in college.

    To all our fans who had to work today or go to class, please don't let the score encourage you, we still sucked. Nothing really good to say, but there may be a solution. Since this is college basketball, I propose we take a sabbatical from the Big East for a year or so, play in a lesser conference till we get out Sh-t together. We can enjoy some wins, some better b ball, drink happily instead of out of frustration, and come back in a couple of years the way Butler Basketball use to be. If that can't happen we are in for a long long winter.

    What part of the score would've been encouraging?

    Let’s hope what happened in Vegas stays in Vegas. I didn’t get to watch either game, but it leaves me a little less than thankful during this holiday season.

    I know I give your posts a lot of pushback but this and the post about golden shooting under the basket are spot on in terms of criticizing controllable things we are bad at.

    Serious question, why not? Bolden led the team in scoring most of last season.

    So I have a couple of points I need closure on. Not about our play as the 100 geniuses in the room have more than got that covered. These are timing questions.

    1. When we inbounded the ball with one second left on the shot clock it was clear the shot clock went off before A&M gained possession. In the pros that is a shot clock violation. Is the rule different for NCAA play?

    2. Did anyone notice that when the ball went out of bounds to Butler (the one they reviewed and confirmed, less than two minutes remained) they set the shot clock to 20 seconds? Why? It ended up not mattering as we actually scored, but I am at a loss to explain it.
