    Perhaps that’s the case. And naturally, I’m basing my opinions of the fans I’ve interacted with, who may be much different from those with whom you’ve…ahem…made acquaintances.

    I’m just saying that the time has come to treat Butler as a peer school, and not as some kid brother we support. They’ve clearly established a legitimate place in the college basketball world given their success in the last decade.

    I guess that’s why I view them as no different than any other in-state school or opponent of IU. We’re going to be competing with them – on and off the court – with continued frequency into the future, and I just don’t see a reason they require the support of the IU fan base.

    My bad–I must have misunderstood the rule because I thought you had to complete your degree in 3 years, not just have a year of eligibilty left.
    Now I understand!
