    Jerry Petty, a former Butler Basketball player, Head Coach at North Central, and a die hard Butler Basketball fan passed away early this morning.

    He and his wife Linda have been permanent fixtures in Section 116 at Hinkle Fieldhouse. I have sat next to them every year I have had season tickets for the Dawgs. His passion and knowledge of the game is going to be missed by everyone that knew him; but he will be missed even more because he was an incredible person.

    I know Blue II and all of the Butler Alumni that have left us over the years were waiting for him with open arms.

    It is a sad day for our Bulldawg Nation.
