    I mean, I agree you have to make the call, but he was a teammate of Aaron Thompson in high school and would he be OK coming off the bench behind AT as a freshman and/or would he expect starter's minutes?

    I can't exactly explain why, but I feel like that calculus is a lot harder when the guy you're trying to push out is someone you've known for a while.

    He's a 6'3 combo guard. Imagine a taller version of Baldwin who only has to wait a year to compete for the opportunity to start. Sounds like he can play both the 1 & 2.

    Is anyone else peeved by all these departure/commitment notices that ALL include the phrasing “with that being said....”

    Am I wrong to think it not only sounds awkward, but is also used awkwardly, and for some reason every kid says that?

    This is probably one of my “things” but I think it’s bizarre.

    Kyle corrected himself...Bryce Moore (grad transfer) has the OVs.

    Really is hilarious that they won't even give the kid a sniff. In their own backyard.

    Let's pray this means they have a bigger fish already on the hook. This kid can get it. Got turned on to him a few months ago, steadily watched from far...man he's got something. I just hope we have something better in mind, otherwise, unacceptable.

    He doesn’t, Neddenriep meant Bryce Moore has officials with Xavier and Creighton.

    The kid still can play. Still needs attention.

    But don't I feel like a poop faced fart.

    I went from aggravated to happy. I want nothing to do with Moore and everything to do with sniffing Lavaria. My error in trusting neddintart is my fault. Carry on, and eat Qdoba.

    Just saying, if you thought it was unjustifiable that our staff wasn’t recruiting Lavaria if Creighton and Xavier were. Then by the same logic, wouldn’t Creighton and Xavier being interested in Bryce Moore justify the staff’s interest in him?

    LaVaria should be a priority, he is right in our backyard and can play. Purdue thinks so!

    Coaching staff is probably looking for more scoring, but I'd like to see Butler basketball get back to its defensive roots. Moore would be a nice pickup. I'm not saying he's the best option, but you also don't want to run the risk of striking out either. It's a chess game.

    Just curious why you think Moore would be a nice pick up. His defense wasn't great or even good it was average at best with limited offensive upside couple that with Smits equals worst case scenario and last place next year...

    Wasn’t Moore an all-conference defender?

    Good point. I think I'm very biased towards the situation in all honesty. This kid may turn out to be a dud but something screams "player" to me. Moore on the other hand is gimping in on one leg and was marginal before he was injured and then continued to play on it (what kind of medical staff does wmu have anyway?). It's simply my opinion, main priority is going after transfers but if more scholarships become available, no reason not to at least give this kid a look.

    So let me get this straight...

    Two days ago you’re trashing the idea of Butler being interested in Bryce Moore.

    Now there is a tweet that is a mistake that links a kid to Xavier and Creighton, and that makes you question what our staff is doing.

    Turns out that kid is Bryce Moore.

    Just want to make sure you realize how contradictory you’re being. Give the staff some credit. You get mad at dawgs2014 for being a know it all...?
