Man Butler really knows how to win close games. I'm starting to believe in all that mathematical analysis their HC uses on opponents tendencies. That's about all he will say when he is asked about how he uses the data, but he does it for every game. I hope he gets a big bonus for another Final 4 birth.
He's going to get an even bigger bonus when a big time program shows up with a truckload of money.
My guesses are Tennessee (no more Bruce Pearl) or Indiana (he's already in state and post-sanctions they want to get back to the Bobby Knight days).
Unless he decides to be like Mark Few and stay no matter what which would be really cool.
Too bad that hardly ever happens.
I don't know I think he's staying. He signed a 12 year extension after losing to Duke last year. And according to this guy he thinks
that Stevens and the basketball program is getting paid about 10% of Butlers total $11 million athletic budget.
Also as that article points out, and I alluded to earlier, Stevens is a numbers crunching basketball coach (knowing 20 minutes after the Championship game last year they had 145 possession). And if you ask me that's a formula for winning in Indiana where he's from.
