Re: Butler

I'm plenty worried about both since we're playing you both on the road, and Chris Mack is once again doing well in A-10 play. Temple is hot and cold, but they have one of the league's best wins against Cuse so clearly when they're clicking they can beat anyone.

Butler is the best team in this league, and VCU is coming up behind them, but we also haven't played any real upper-echelon programs yet either. St. Joe's is the closest to it and they took us to the wire at home, but they're looking more mid-pack now than top-tier.

We'll see how it pans out.

Re: Butler

While I share the general sentiments about the great addition to the league of Butler and VCU, I'm not all that sure about Hinkle.

And why doesn't it sell out every game?

Re: Butler

They'll average 8500 to 9000 a game this year.

There's only one more weekend game (URI) that hasn't already sold out.

(10,000+ capacity --> 4000 students)

Do you have seat licensing now? What is your season ticket base?

@BUtickets @BUtickets: Less than 200 tickets remaining for the @ButlerMBB game vs. Rhode Island on Feb 2. It will likely be sold out by the end of the day.

Simple Economics:

Pacers, Colts, IU, Purdue are all within a simple drive. Don't forget, Indiana leads the nation in high school attendance too - and its much cheaper.

4,000 Student base, with many students from out of town (Chicago & East Coast) means many don't stay.

Local TV covers all home games, so that probably hurts a little too.

Re: Butler

Mark Titus of Club Trillion fame has Butler at 7 in this week's Top 12. I think what he says about Butler's style of play is pretty interesting.

Re: Butler

Butler got a commitment tonight from former Laker head coach Mike Brown's son, elijah brown, He had said the other day he cut his list to Butler, Georgetown, Miami, St Marys, and Vandy

Eric Bossi more or less said Brown will move into the 150 at the next reset in his update a week or two ago

With 3 Rivals Top 150 guys and an unranked 3-star, I'd imagine BU will rank Top 20/25 in the rivals 2013 team rankings.

Kellen Dunham won his 4th Freshman of the Week award. Both he and Semaj Christon have four commendations.
