only reason anyone will ever see me go for Butler is because their out of indiana. unless their playing the hoosiers of course lol. But that young coach in butler has done some good things for that team the last few years. back to back championship appearances, 3 tournament appearances in a row. and if im not mistaken got the bulldogs into the top 10 2 years in a row and possible 3 years in a row pending on how they finish this year. brought them out of no where and made a name for themselves.
Butler has been solid since 1997, and really have not had a BAD team since 1996. They have had good teams all through the years at various times. Their coaches have gotten the program up, and then have left for supposed better things.
Barry Collier left for Nebraska, Thad Matta Xavier...then Ohio State, Tod Lickliter Iowa...and then Brad Stevens. Wiki actually has some good Butler info....look at the Tony Hinkle years 1920s,,,,vs the Joe Sexon lean years 1980s....
