Butler Bulldogs too big for the Horizon League?
I'm not sure quite how it works but i think teams sometimes are invited to different conferences based upon how they are playing, idk if its every certain number of years or its just random..
But does anyone besides me think that Butler should no longer be in the Horizon? think about it, This year they went 18-0 in the horizon. I think if they left, they would have alot of success in another conference. I'd like to see them in a stronger conference, just to see them get tested more often, the only team that can do it in the Horizon is Detroit.
Now next year i think Detroit has a legit chance of beating them when they play. They returned almost all of their leading scorers and it looks like they'll be landing Ray McCallum as well. But i still think butler is too good for the Horizon
there is a LOT more that goes into switching to a bigger conference then just recent succes in one sport. Facilities, multiple sports that keep up with the rest the conference, the education system is even taken into consideration. I listened to hours on this subject on the radio before. Gonzaga could never join the pac 10 for a reason. I honeslty have no idea how butler as a university stacks up with bigger conferences, but just pointing out that there is more then just one sports relevance.
Despite their success, Butler is a VERY small school. Out of all the division one colleges in the state, they're probably one of the smallest... If not, THE smallest.
They're fine in the Horizon League.
llperez22, I believe it's mostly a money thing. Joining a new conference has no problem on recruiting because you can catch up on that with using conference affiliation. Though, the Horizon League board of directors could if they wish kick Butler out of the Horizon league, but they bring too much to the conference to allow that. I heard the MAAC wants Siena out, and they moved the conf tournament b/c it was on Siena's home floor, but it did generate a lot of attendance.
im confused, i thought "butler bulldogs" was tezo? And yes, recruiting isn't that big a deal. MOney and what type of fan base they draw is heavily considered among other things.
ButlerBulldogs is Tezo, while "tezo" is actually knicksfan7. Arg.
YES!!!! someone fell for it. I will change it tomorrow.
I smell a man crush...
i figured it was one of you jokesters. That post was far too inteligent and thought provoking to have been the real tezo.
DanEboy you know my man crush is always for you, lol. Don't you have to save an old lady or something.
OJJ, with the pictures.
I think we have to wait on what happens with football for conference realignment to see where basketball stands. We can see some crazy stuff.
Also, I have class tomorrow at 10, so I need my sleep. I'm out.
"That post was far too intelligent and thought provoking to have been the real Tezo."
For real? I think I bring a lot of intelligence to this board and thought provoking posts. No disrespect to Knicksfan7, but if you thought her post was that thought provoking... You have problems. It was pretty much common sense.
Her post??? Tezo, what does that mean, I am a dude, lolz. Tezo c'mon mannnnnn, lol.
i was joking tezo, i respect your opinion as much as anyone on this site.
LOL... Wait... In one post, you said you were a her. The one about Brad Stevens I thought!
Yeah I did as a joke, lolz. I guess I got two people. I feel satisfied.
Wow... You sure got me. I thought you were serious. That's kind of why I didn't respond to your e-mail. I was like, "Man... This young girl is writing me." Lol.
it's all good. Yeah man. I still want to come out to indiana to see butler next year son.
You got me too lol. I thought you were serious. I was kind of hurt!
@knicksfan7... You already know man. Like I said... Just let me know. Butler is like five minutes down the road. I'll take you on a little hoops tour in this area. A lot of good basketball around here.
yeah no one disses the real tezo I mean he keeps sh*t in check when me, money, OJJ, daneboy bring the comedy.
i figured the "thought provoking" part gave away I was joking. But yeah, just playin.
@OrangeJuiceJones. You're the king of posting pics and vids. That's hilarious lol.
@Llperez22. I'm going to need you to start using the phrase "lol". I think you're like my dad. Can't tell when he's serious or not. I'm constantly like, "For real?" "Are you serious."
This is off subject, but has anybody seen this video lol?
