    Bryce looked good at the rim besides that put back which was point blank, but was 1-6 on 5ft hook shots. Then the freshman alone was 3-20 from 3 like man that's bad.... And overall they was 7-35 just gonna be hard to win with them shooting like that only player at 50% was Bolden and he had a crucial turnover.

    Next time we beat X, we need to absolutely flood their Twitter replies. I will say though, there’s some pretty clever and funny content in Butler’s “Final score” tweet

    Love the Freemantle hate! He’s only a sophomore folks you’ll be seeing plenty more of him.

    could he reach macura level status here?

    I can’t believe people are upset about how we played tonight. We likely had 5 of our best 6 players out.

    We played really hard, played loose and let it rip.

    If we had won this it would have been the most improbable win in over ten years.

    Gah, I feel sorry for Matthew Graves having to put up with some of those characters. When the Wilcher kid was doing that ridiculous zip em up stunt at Hinkle, Matthew was close to busting him down a peg.

    Who's Macura? Morrissey maybe?

    Sure there will be a number of players we'll see that are better than Butler's. We complain about a lot of things that don't matter.

    Maybe I'm the only one, but I'm pretty happy with how the game went tonight.

    We literally didn't have our three best scorers AND defenders. The pups played with fight and you can't be upset about that. I really think we couldn't hit a shot down the stretch because they had just run out of gas. It's hard to play 7 deep in the Big East, especially at the tempo they were playing.

    Yeah, we suck this year, but I think we win that game with AT, Hodges, and Nze.

    The only thing I'm legitimately mad about and never was up until this time is our strength and conditioning. I always just said it was bad luck, etc. But you're telling me that CD, Markeese, Scooby, Nze, AT, Coles, and Hodges are just inherently fragile? I legitimately think if we had Hodges all season and AT didn't miss a game then we'd be dancing in March. Not to mention what we would look like if Scooby, Coles, and CD hadn't all torn their ****.

    Edit: My wallet is also mad that we didn't lose the spread on the first half.

    I'm only 5 minutes into the game. But Freemantle has more travels than lay ups. They just haven't been called.

    Meanwhile, Golden has two travels for half as many steps.

    While the shots look horrible (2 airball 3's), the defensive energy is refreshing.

    Last game, Dawgs were first down 10 points at 20-10. This game, Dawgs couldn't wait, falling behind by 10 at 16-6. This is hard to watch

    I actually was impressed with how the Bulldogs played being so shorthanded.

    Just ran out of gas and couldn't hit enough buckets down the stretch as they went ice colder.

    I thought the ball moved a lot better offensively than we've seen recently--even if they didn't hit the shots. Rebounding was huge overall.

    Energy, effort, competitiveness and an extra chip were all there.

    I’m not gonna say I’m mad or disappointed or surprised about tonight, because we were extremely short handed, so, whatever. But I’m certainly not happy about it. Xavier is a fringe top 50 team, and they shot 2-19 from 3 and butler still lost by 12. Xavier was flat out terrible (Steele has no idea what he’s doing on the Xs and Os front - there’s not a worse Xs and Os coach in the BE), and butler was still more terrible (again, given the personnel available, it’s fine and expected and understandable, but I can’t see how we can take the game as a positive).

    The JMM Ft's. I gather he missed them. Was he even close? The TV cut out cause of the snow.

    Butler's offense is the worst it's been since the 11-12 season. The defensive futility is only surpassed by the 18-19 team unless you go back to the Lickliter years. The difference IMO is those teams actually had foundations to build off of for the following season, and with the 11-12 team they were getting 2 stud shooters the following year (Clarke and Dunham). This team will be older, so they should be better, but it's not as if they are bringing in a solution to their problems, which are numerous.

    Did you really come here to argue that *not* doing all that kinda sh*t makes us pompous snobs?

    Neat.

    Did I mention I hate Xavier? Their fans are like OSU football fans that don’t have anything better to do during the winter.
