Thursday Tour: Butler Links from Around the Web


Today, we decided to introduce a new feature on the site where we will put out some links from other sites talking about everything going on with Butler Basketball, the Big East, and I guess now we’ll even have some Boston Celtics coverage. So, enjoy some Thursday links.

First, BusinessWeek.com takes a look at the new sports network, Fox Sports One. Many people are expecting this to be a place for people who are sick of the overkill of Tim Tebow, Mark Sanchez, and Lebron James on ESPN. Additionally, though, this network also has a deal with the Big East, so many of Butler’s games will be live on Fox Sports One.

Russell Steinberg of SB Nation looks at how Brandon Miller needs to incorporate “The Butler Way” as he takes over the Butler program.

Joe Boozell does a very good job with Butler coverage over at Bleacher Report. He takes a look at who will lead the Bulldogs in different statistical categories, some highlights from this season’s projected starters, and Brad Stevens’ bolt for the Celtics from a Butler students’ perspective.

Finally, respected college basketball expert, Jon Rothstein, breaks down the Big East by answering questions and putting together some pre-season power rankings.
