    Yep, we should be ranked going into the Purdue game unless we completely blow a winnable one, I think.

    There won't be many teams go into Cincy and win this year. That's a great win.

    It really is. It's been tough to watch. Andrew is a nice guy and, like most Butler players I've met, someone who you'd root for as hard off the court as you did on the court. It sucks seeing someone go through this.

    **** cancer.

    So is the Neese kid they offered from Cloverdale the son of Jerry Neese? Jerry Neese was a pretty good high school player (and small college) who played on a semi-state team at Cloverdale with Chad Tucker.

    I think Butler is good. Like dark horse Final Four good. I think Purdue will beat the hell out of them. Just an absolute nightmare matchup.

    It is not a great match-up but any team with Rose Jones suiting up fears nothing. The Boilers can't let the Dawgs hang around like the Zeller/Oladipo Hoosiers from a few years back. Could easily regret it.

    Standard pregame ritual in our house as teams lineup for the tip off.......

    Agreed. It will take a superb performance on both ends from Wideman to win, and even then we will need Dunham and Lewis to be on from 3.

    I love the way Butler plays basketball. Your program is a machine. Great coach leaves? replace him with another.

    Good win, Dawgs. Butler is a hell of program, and their team this year is one of their best.

    This is an incredible start. Winning with Dunham and Martin being no shows is huge. This shows how well-balanced we are and that we can win without scoring 90.

    I may have underestimated them. This looks like a legit Final Four contender.

    I am never really worried about Butler when it comes to matching up with size and strength, but speed and athleticism give us fits.

    Butler just got Kris Dunned. Bad way to start of conference play at home. I hope Dunham figures out how to regain his shot sometime soon.

    Providence has some legit talent over and above Dunn. Tough team for anyone to beat when the perimeter shots are falling at that clip. Ed Cooley is also a really good coach.

    This KD funk is a little troubling. Starting to look more like a confidence issue than a just a simple shooting slump.

    Another loss to a good team. Can't afford to drop those at home. Next week at Providence is one they really need to get now.

    I don't love our chances. Our conference start has been brutal and disappointing, and the Purdue win doesn't look as great as it once did. It may be in a fight to get in the NCAA's.
