News On The Horizon 10/29/2011

Here's your aural checklist:

From the beginning: We share some of our worst driving experiences. Parrish has an unbelievable story that's so Parrish and so hilarious. And apparently Goodman was once a Domino's delivery boy. Who knew?
5:50: Into the hoop talk. Indiana and the expectation level there. Then the Brad Stevens talk begins, and we begin to senselessly speculate where and when Stevens would leave Butler.

6. Butler Bulldogs: It may take a while for Butler to prove me right on this. While Andrew Smith, Ronald Nored and Chase Stigall are returning starters, none of them are potential stars. Chrishawn Hopkins and Khyle Marshall are, but they are also sophomores. It may take a while for everything to come together, but the same thing happened last season. And when all the pieces finally did get put into place, the Bulldogs made their second straight run to the national title game. Advice: don't bet against Brad Stevens.

While a new labor deal is hammered out, Tyrone Corbin, Scott Layden, Jeff Hornacek and Sidney Lowe have extra time on their hands. Sure, they've strategized and prepared for whenever real basketball gets here. In the meantime, they've put on camp-like clinics at the team training facility for season ticket holders, sponsors and VIPs.

For a day, participants experience what it's like to be Paul Millsap and Gordon Hayward — minus the million dollar contracts and pink princess backpacks.

Gordon Hayward has committed to play in a pro-am All-Star game the night before (Nov. 6) in Indiana, so it seems unlikely he'd participate in this one.

Butler - I don't know if I can put this kindly: the Bulldogs are going to have to get real creative when establishing team goals this season. After playing in consecutive National Championship finals, it appears that finally (and I say that endearingly), The Butler will not be one of the two remaining teams in the field of 68, I think. Assuming lighting never strikes three times...where the heck do these guys go from here? Winning the Horizon - while not a shoe-in this season - isn't going to feel particularly special and neither will knocking off juggernaut after juggernaut in the month of March. The Bulldogs have accomplished both with alacrity. A great non-conference schedule will keep Butler relevant this season, but in terms of program growth these guys might be stuck.
