    Why did we need to play? We’ve now had more games than practices since the season started.

    While I am certainly disappointed with the way the season has started, I am going to withhold judgment until Butler actually is able to get some practices and games in. While every other program has had to deal with COVID in one way or another, I'm not sure how many of the other programs went three weeks without a game or practice. Two practices makes it pretty hard for the players to develop any consistency. I would guess that Aaron Thompson and Chuck Harris had most of the reps at point guard in the practices they did have, so I would think that Myles Tate is pretty much learning it on the run.

    You mean the excuses of having to entirely shut down the program for three weeks, having your starting point guard out with injury and playing four freshmen nearly 50% of the available minutes?

    Obviously, last night was disappointing to a degree. They had a long stretch where they played poorly. But, given the circumstances, let's see where they are a few weeks from now.

    This could be a long year but isn't that sort of what everyone was predicting to begin with?

    By the way, Harris had 6 assists last night. That's encouraging right there.

    The thing that had me the most shook from last night’s game was how old those highlights looked from when we played SIU in the bracket buster.

    I was a student at that game - which doesn’t seem that long ago. But man, that video made me feel old.

    If you don't count the times they overperformed, then this team clearly underperforms.

    Agree, I won't buy tickets to the PC game anymore because Cooley walks in looking like a pimp and walks out looking like a genius.

    I have zero inside knowledge but would be surprised if any of this year’s seniors returned. At this point I’d be thrilled to have a season with all players staying healthy and eligible.

    Can you expand on that thought?

    I’m a senior this year and occasionally get some inside knowledge around the team, I should probably just leave it at that to avoid getting anyone in trouble haha

    Welp, it's been a weird year.

    Why can't he be both?

    Actually Cooley was wearing the dad version of skinny jeans (not denim). He’s obviously slimmed down quite a bit—the pants splitting might have been an incentive.

    This dude, unfortunately, has been right on almost everything he’s predicted.
