    After a long hiatus, which included my last post predicting LaVall’s last season…I’m Back.

    Went to the Davenport game with my neighbor last night. This team is legit. More dunks last night then all of last season. The pace was tremendous. Davenport wasn’t all that bad either, so don’t let the score/stats fool you.

    Hunter looked like the best player on the court to me. Bates is a game changer like we haven’t seen since I was at BU and Joel Cornette was manning the paint. Chuck looked back to his old self, and then some. Myles Tate looked fluid like he did pre-injury.

    Possibly the most athletic team in Butler history. Don’t count these Dawgs out for a better than 20-10 season. Very deep team.

    P.S. Dig up the threads…my guy Pierce Thomas will be a beast for this program. CHEERS

    They were better than the first exhibition, which was probably because Thad lit a fire under them. They utilized their quick hands, and played better with Manny than a much shorter Hughes guarding the 5. However, we definitely missed Ali and Jalen's size and potential contributions from far out (Ali). It's better when we don't shoot in the 20% or so from the line either. When someone other than Luko hits a free throw, it's a good sign.

    Against Citadel, I'm not worried. Against Creighton or Tennessee, it might be a hill to climb.

    The first of many insufferable Pierce Thomas posts and threads I fear...but the positive....like many BU BBall fans, he's back after spending two seasons in a Jordan induced exile...

    Pierce is just a sophomore so only one year under the old staff.

    Even better is that he is a R/S freshman in terms of eligibility :)

    Thomas athletic ability is off the charts. Body filled out more during the red shirt year too. It’s going to be hard to keep him off the court, when he can lockdown 1-4 on defense. Big time playmaker too. Could end up being Butler’s best dunker of all-time (quantity and wow factor).

    Probably only a rotational player this year, since we are so deep. Should be a starter by next year.

    I’m definitely WAY more excited with this new coaching staff and offensive philosophy. GO DAWGS!

    It's not an airport. No need to announce departures and arrivals.

    If that was supposed to be funny, you might want to go back to the drawing board.

    Pierce Thomas having a heck of a first half! That dude’s nickname should be “spark plug.” He brings a ton of energy, rebounding and playmaking ability.

    More a comment on the absurdity of you believing you were missed.
