    I don't do Instagram but have a little birdie who does and that news was shared with me a few minutes ago. Which is excellent. I'm a huge Tater Tot fan. BOLD prediction...

    His shooting will be muuuuuuuch better than last year. I guess that's not too bold seeing he was missing from deep aplenty but, I have faith in my man that he'll make an impact.

    So what you're saying is that he'll be back for the Crossroads?

    I'm thinking y'all going saturday will get to see him in action a little. Needs to get his feet wet some before playing the best team in the land.

    Uh...not seeing anything on their socials related to Tate. Maybe they jumped the gun and took it down?

    Check Instagram stories…Tater Tot, Chuck and Wilmoth all posted about it.

    You know Butler...we know nothing official (from them at least) until the very last second they have to say it.

    Wish we had a beat writer…why keep this under wraps? Add it to the list of many issues with the program.

    FWIW: I've been hinting about this for two weeks and tweeted about the posts earlier today. I have been waiting for permission from the program to make an actual "announcement" tweet that he is available for Saturday for 4+ hours. But yeah, my guess is we won't be told we can say something until Saturday because that's just how these things have been going since I started covering the team. If I am given clearance and told 100% that he is ready to go, then I'll tweet that. If I am given that clearance, I bet it won't be until after practice today anyways, which is fair.

    Tucker's Windy City Bulls have a 7 PM home game the night before the Crossroads, then don't play again until Dec. 29. The window's there. And Bo's not using the #1 jersey. Really seems like the planets are aligning on this one.

    Not trying to be rude or mean, but why hold this info? I get that you don’t want to burn sources, but this is info I figure they would want out? No way they want to hold ALL info they give you. Just my two cents.

    Woods is worthless and Lukas can only do so much when you're dealing with people acting like they're holding all the nuclear codes. I'm not sure having a full time "beat" guy would change much. As we've all seen, Lukas does a hell of a job with the limited info he's given.

    I ask. I've gotten burned once by getting permission from one source within the program and posting something but another did not want it out yet. I'm not doing that again, even if that situation ended up getting blown over fine. I ask, I wait. I don't think it's harmful to anyone to wait - it can be to jump the gun.

    Yeah, it only takes once to burn a source, so I don't blame Lukas at all. He's still the closest to an actual beat writer we have. Plus, he does a good job of at least hinting at stuff he's not comfortable fully sharing yet.

    OK, man you all dig deep in your social stalking. I sort of draw the line on getting into the instas of all the players. I see the 12Free stuff now. That's pleasant news and a good shot in the arm for this team.

    Is he cleared to suit up or to practice with contact? I was told by someone of significance that offices in Hinkle Tate and Hodges will be out until January and Nze maybe January or February. We will know soon. Of the two Hodges is far more important at this juncture as well as Nze. Tate will have to work in minutes not used by Harris, Bolden, Lukosius and Taylor.
