    Not exactly the best news I've brought to the board.

    Starting a new thread. Brutal news. Depth was already a major concern this year. I was higher on Scooby than anyone. I think I predicted he would be a top 10 Dawg of all time by the time he was done. And I’m still high on him, but man, Butler needed him for this year.

    Hate to be this guy, but this could be COVID related. Scooby always seemed to have the “Freshman fat” that guys lose when they get in the program, like Kelan. If he gained 10-15lbs during quarantine, it only made his chance for injury higher.

    Ruh Roh Shaggy...

    With Scooby out and Hodges sitting out for a transfer year, do they even explore Wilmoth red shirt anymore or burn it for bench depth

    Couldn't possibly ask for a better year to do a medical red-shirt?

    Obviously sucks for Scooby and wish him the best with the surgery and recovery.

    Without bad luck, the Dawgs would seemingly have no luck. The negatives; lack of depth will hurt this team if ANY of the season is played and Scooby in for pain/rehabilitation. Positive for Scooby, there is a high probability he won't miss what would be a typical full season.

    Would have been nice to get that waiver for Hodges (been saying that since he transferred)...the ncaa is handing out waivers like they are muffins at a soup kitchen. Every damn program out there is getting their waivers honored...not us. Makes you wonder if we even tried.

    To answer a question above, I don't think you can red shirt Wilmoth. A basketball team needs bodies. This ain't a movie. This is the real deal and we compete in the big east. I hope he can be on the ready because he may see significant action.

    I do think with this you insert Tate at the 2 and move Bolden to the 3 (small I know).

    This seems like a bit of a stretch to me...

    I really, really thought he was the most D-1 ready of the great 2020 class. I don't know if it was even close.

    Pull some strings and get Hodges eligible so we don't win like 1 or 2 BE games.

    Hey Bo, I know we had developed the plan for you to sit out and work on all of these things for your personal development, but now we think you shouldn’t work on all those things and instead play this season.

    Yeah, I think the decision with Hodges is more about what him and Butler want and less about being able to get a waiver.

    Exactly. NCAA is handing out waivers like hotcakes.

    Will Tucker be eligible before or after the Cross Roads Classic? (Asking for a friend)

    To Scooby: take good care of yourself and do everything that will enable you to have a healthy career and a healthy life. To his family and friends: we share your disappointment in watching him this season, but look forward to his return when he is completely healthy. We are crazy about basketball here, but Butler basketball is not about what a player can give us, but who that player ultimately becomes as a person. Best wishes to Scooby.

    So this team now has the following...AT, Nze, Golden, Bolden, Tate, Harris, Coles, David (on two bad wheels), Wilmoth (?) and JMM.

    I don't think that spells much BE success if this season is played (it will be). Feel for AT and Nze as their last year will be a pretty rough one. Was always going to be a tough go, but...this news makes it much tougher.

    This is most unfortunate news. This team will struggle to score 60 PPG. Vall running off Tucker wasn't the brightest idea nor was refusing to explore a waiver for Hodges.
