    Yeah I’m a little surprised (if reports are true) that he hasn’t been cleared yet from a shoulder dislocation with surgery 5 months ago. I know he had shoulder surgery in 2018 but that was on his left shoulder.

    Who was hesitant to can Lavall? I honestly can’t think of anyone who was like “no this is the right level for Butler” except maybe danko.

    I'll say that I was very hesitant to fire LaVall if the replacement was Boals, who I felt was a lateral move that would cost us key players. But Thad has been a homerun and I legitimately couldn't be more pleased with the direction the program is taking.

    I really hope they do just enough to sneak into the tourney as like a 12 seed… just enough for Ewing to keep his job. He’s taking them nowhere and that’s the top academic institution in the BE with a ton of basketball history. Look at Butler’s turnaround in 5 weeks… I’d hate for Georgetown to can Ewing and then “get it right”. I love their irrelevance.

    Just seeing what ACC fans think of Bates pretty much secures my thought that we got a major steal if he's healthy. Theyre still having nightmares about him and I can't wait for Big East players to deal with Manny sending their shots back to them. If he was transferring without an injury history I'd guess the blue bloods would have been calling.

    Of the three ACC transfers Butler has now had by my count (Tyler Lewis, Jordan Tucker & Bates) he is by far the one I am or was most excited about at this point. I watched all three at their respective schools before Butler. I have every expectation that Bates will be a game changer for the Bulldogs.

    For whatever it is worth, I was excited about Lewis, but had some reservations. I was not enthusiastic about Tucker, and held those thoughts to myself because I don't like being critical of the players on here, especially before they've suited up.

    When Tyler Lewis came to Butler I was excited, I wasn't sure who he was until I remembered watching him run point for NC State in the play-in game the year before. I loved how he got guys open and made nifty passes, I wanted Butler to have someone like him after Nored left. Lewis got on my nerves for sure, the guy couldn't defend his position for his size, but he made himself a lot better in his final year.
    Bates already surpasses my expectations for what a transfer should do for Butler, assuming he's healthy.

    As long as Bates hits the first 3 he takes in the Crossroads, we should be good. Then we can have high expectations.

    This is going back a few years but did Julian Betko transfer from Clemson?

    Betko is a coach and develops basketball talent in Europe for colleges in the USA.

    Of course, you are correct. Totally forgot that Betko came from Clemson. I don't think I watched a single Clemson game his one season there.

    If Bates stays healthy we will be dancing but with Butler “ healthy” has not been a strength.

    Injuries are inherently a part of sports.

    True, but are not properly conditioned athletes less prone to injuries?

    If NCDog is inferring about BU specifically, any questioning of the past training program is reasonable. The facts were Matthew Johnson arrived 1n 2018. The rash of injuries happened when the incoming freshmen were not allowed to be on campus until just before classes began in the fall semester 2020, due to covid. Thus, any training happened on their own. Prior to the 20-21 season there were no major season ending issues. Any criticisms may be fair but also are debatable.
