    We might have gone a little long with this one but there is at least a bit more of a formatted structure to it. Thank you all for the questions, it was nice to have the Q&A section!

    Good job gentlemen, looking forward to the next edition. I especially liked the new recruit section, it was very informative. You guys do you homework!

    Wonderful Episode! Very entertaining. I too wish Sean was more aggressive on taking shots and going to the basket. He is an elite shooter and needs to put up far more shots.

    I am more bullish on Golden than Jared or Lukas. To me Golden has taken a big leap from last year and is lights out better than what we had at the five. Until Smits plays and shows something other than what he showed in the exhibition games Golden has to be the starting five.

    You guys need to quit your day jobs and give us a podcast 3 times a week. It was perfect for the drive to and from work today. Thanks fellas.

    I agree here golden has already proven himself on my mind as a player with this team
    He seems to blend and work so well out there plus he is everything g I feel we want from a butler player

    Last game vs wofford he was on the bench down the stretch but he seemed to be the first guy off the bench cheering and getting into the game

    I’ll say it: go ahead and make these all an hour+. You both did a great job. Loved the structure of the episode. Genuinely great work.

    Great stuff (yes, I know I am way late in listening). I have a question though, in two parts.

    In the episode, @jaredgrubbs said he would love to see an 8 man rotation and have David be the 8th man. So...

    1a. Who would be out?

    (Assuming JMM and Smits are already out of the top 8)

    1b. Since this was recorded when Butler was 4-0, have either (Jared or Lukas) of your opinions changed with the play in the last 3 games?

    When is Episode 4 coming?

    The obvious choice from 1a is you alternate Tucker/Baddley depending on offensive/defensive need flow of the game, how engaged is Tucker. If you have good Tucker, Baddley is out which we saw in the HOF classic, he got zero minutes against Missouri, and then when you get bad Tucker, you get lots of Baddley like you get against Stanford.

    We were planning on recording Episode 4 for this season on Black Friday, but travel/work took both of us off that target. Expect the next episode to arrive prior to the Florida game - I also have a special guest lined up from the Gators' side that I am good writer friends with to provide insight on what they will bring.

    Jared and I will be recording S2:E4 of the Hinkle Heat Check podcast tonight. We will also be joined by a special guest to discuss the matchup coming on Saturday (he is a Florida writer).

    With recording coming up in ~9 hours, send over your questions for the Q/A section of the pod!
