We feel a certain connection with Butler after the classic title game in 2010, and it made us a bit sad to see that the Bulldogs had lost five players since this winter.
Things aren't always as they seem though. BU gets Roosevelt Jones back after a year out for injury, and Indiana transfer Austin Etherington is eligible immediately. So Butler might not be as devastated as it appears.
Essentially all the transfers were from Brad Stevens' last recruiting class and Butler also had Tyler Lewis in the system as well. We'll see. We'd love to see them keep things going.
