    I could be getting too paranoid, but you're not hinting at something are you? Because the below quote from LaVall in Adam Zagoria's story caught my eye. Is there a chance he doesn't play?

    “He’ll be in uniform,” Butler coach LaVall Jordan said Thursday by phone. “I think everybody will probably see him in uniform. We’ll see how the game goes. He’s practiced well, but jumping out there in a game will be a whole different environment.”

    Read that also, and makes me think they are going to ease him in. Maybe 4-5 minutes each half.

    If he plays good enough that we need him on the court, he'll earn his own minutes. I do like the idea of a bigger lineup though, especially if he can contribute anything at the 4.

    No no no. I don’t mean to scare you. Lavall’s quote definitely raised my eyebrows too but I don’t think he’d say it if it was meant to be an indictment.

    I meant to say that I think a lot of fans are too casual of fans to be really aware that we have a Transfer making his debut or that we have a Duke transfer, or at least be aware of what the expectations could or should next.

    Maybe I’m off base but it’s amazing how much I hear stuff around my seats that suggest that most people don’t really know all that much about our players.

    If it doesn’t make the discussion table at MCL, it’s like a tree falling in the forest when nobody is around to 35% of the fan base.

    Hey don’t knock mcl, they always hosted our post season team parties when I was in school and their green beans were spectacular.

    Also, who can forget the Trey for a tray promotion?

    My theory, based on zero evidence, is that LaVall is sandbagging and Tucker will get significant minutes and positively affect the outcome. I think worst case scenario is we get to throw in a player that IU has no scouting report on which causes some havoc for their defense.

    I alluded to it in one of many other Jordan Tucker threads we have had - an aside: Has there ever been a player that generated more threads before he ever took the court for Butler? - but I think some of you have created unrealistic expectations for the young man.

    I truly hope he is the next greatest Bulldog ever and that he lights IU up today. But if the kid only plays 5 to 10 minutes and has a modest stat line, I'm not going to be disappointed, either.

    This situation reminds me an awful lot of Tyler Lewis' transfer. He was a very good player for Butler, but never lived up to the crazy expectations some people had set for him.

    Just glad we'll (hopefully) finally get to see him play for Butler today.

    Cody Zeller on the other board. Jackson Davis & Trevon had monster threads.

    If the team is absolutely empty from deep, we might see Tucker get some meaningful minutes. Not expecting much otherwise. I'd guess at least Joey, Baddley and David are ahead of him on the depth chart today.

    Someone call the Wooden committee, Tucker has already hit 50% of last year's point total in just 8 minutes.

    Seriously. This is a game where he should get a LOT of burn to practice real-time defensive rotations. The Blue Hose do not actually live up to the awesomeness of their nickname and do, in fact, suck. Great time to have JT get a bunch of minutes. KenPom #291 Jacksonville just dropped 94 on them in a win, so building an early cushion will be beneficial.
