I assume you are talking about the in state big schools, IU, Purdue and ND. Going into Hinkle is not the most terrifying place to play with the average attendance around 5 thousand people, maybe.<quoted text>
While I am not a Butler hater, I get tired of hearing how all the in-state schools are "scared" to play them and how other schools won't play at Hinkle.
You all neeed to get a grip as you have no basis or fact on why Butler is not playing them.
It actually "just might be" that there were scheduling conflicts, etc., etc., etc., but not a one of you really knows why.
Don't make yourself or your team feel better acting like all the other schools are scared to play you, that is ridiculous.
It's not just Butler but all the mid majors. There is no advantage for big time schools to play the mid majors. There is no big financial payoff. If they play them and do beat them it doesn't help their standings, because they are expected to beat them. If they loose to a mid major it usually kills their standings in the polls. The polls are the basis for the NCAA seatingís. Thatís why the big schools avoid scheduling the mid majors. It's not a Butler thing it's mid major thing. I hope that explains it better for you.
