Butler is overrated

Posted on: February 19, 2009 4:49 pm

I actually like Butler, since they are one of the few decent colleges in Indiana, so in no way is this post meant to bash Butler.

  • Butler has lost 3 games in the HORIZON LEAGUE. If it was Big 11, that would be okay. But the Horizon League. Seriously...
  • They only have 2 top 50 wins, against Xavier and UAB. Penn State, another bubble team, has four Top 50 wins.
  • An SOS of 99 isn't that tough

While I am hoping they get into the tournament, their current play makes me think they won't. Unless they crush Davidson, I don't see them making the tournament if they don't win the Horizon. And if they do, it will be by the grace of God. They are a young team, so I'll be expecting a lot of them in the future. This year though, it will be close.

Butler is overrated

Uh, teamwork1, look at the date bro'.  That was a comment from last season.  And while they weren't overrated last year, the jury is still out for this year.  I really like how they are playing.  And they will definitely get a chance to prove themselves this year with the quality opponents that they are slated to play.  I am excited about the Bulldogs!!  We'll see how the season goes... I hope to make some games in person.
