    Here you will find 10 haphazardly selected threads that were complete ****shows. I'm curious which you think is the most ridiculous, hence the poll. A little mindless entertainment for a rough off-season.

    I am sure I missed some epic game thread meltdowns. Blame it on my middle age, but I have trouble remembering those.

    Also, this is just from the ButlerHoops.com era. No threads from the old Yuku board or any other forum.

    If there's some egregious omission, I will try to add it. I felt like certainly there would be a Tucker or Brown thread, but in both cases the ****show was spread across a great multitude of threads.

    It’s hard to choose bc I love all of these threads... it’s only when things get political, that I start to ignore discussions

    Need to take more time to refresh myself on some of these threads, but my early favorite might actually be the Pointer thread... if only because back then he actually had people pining for the Star to hire Tom Davis!

    Also the combo of Brad to C’s - Next Coach - Trevon Bluiett was unreal
    it was a smorgasbord of hope, despair, and repeated posts in different threads

    I almost included the Bluiett not suspended thread instead of the Michael Pointer one. So many excellent choices here.

    The worst was probably the Luke Brown one. As for most entertaining, I’ll go for a brief thread that has turned into a meme, “when is tucker eligible?” IIRC it was a thread started by a new member after several people had already explained when he was eligible in multiple threads. laugh out loud literally every time someone says it in a thread now. Holt losing the team was probably the most asinine.

    The Bluiett one was the one I was going to mention. God, those were simpler times.

    I've only been on the board for the last couple of years, but the choice was clear for me XD.

    I've been around since I started at Marquette, which was about a decade ago, and Jesus the hope that we were finally gonna land Bluiett. He was from down the street and people knew like HS teachers of his who were saying "oh yeah he's coming...."

    We were all so hopeful. And then X. It was so bleak.

    The ultimate sh*t show was Pointer. Everything else had it's moments but I think we all genuinely didn't like that guy.

    At least all the others have a semblance that effect Butler basketball, the one most ridiculous thread that never had anything to do, EVER, with Butler was the stupid Luke Brown s***. My lord that was some of the worst things I've ever had to read in my life.

    To be fair, the coronavirus thread didn’t go belly up until post #4.

    Didn't see the option for voting for this thread as the most ridiculous thread ever on butlerhoops.com. Looks to me like 9 of the 10 choices are about Butler basketball or the effects on Butler basketball. Hence the name: butlerhoops.com. Frankly, I'm shocked, shocked, that not everyone agrees with everyone else and there are opposing opinions and discussions about Butler basketball. And if you don't like the 10th you don't have to click on it. So then how do detractors know if the 10th was the most ridiculous, unless they read it? The "get off my grass" types should quit b!tching about it and just don't read it. Eureka, problem solved!!!! Yep, here's my write-in vote for this thread as the most ridiculous.

    Fair point, @Baddog. I considered including this thread in the original 10, but would've had to bump one of the others and couldn't decide which to bump.
