  • Congratulations Arbry

    Lost in the Hart snafu was a real good story which has a chance to get even better. A player cast off by a prior coaching staff busted his butt and academically earned his way back on the team. That tells me something about the kid's character and I don't even know him. It tells me he really wants to be a Shocker and I like that.

    I do to. I've always been big on Butler and his potential. He's obviously busted his butt to earn a spot on this team and with the new system, I could see where he could have much more success than with the previous staff.

      Let’s not go too far. It’s good he righted the ship but he backed himself into a hole by not taking care of business in the first place. He needs to continually get better both on and off the court.

        You are absolutely right Boston. He still has work to do. However, in today's age, more often than not, it is my feeling most kids in a similar situation would take the easy road out and bail for a junior college. That is why I think there is hope.

          Let's hope he takes care of things in the gym just as hard, because players that can clang a brick from anywhere on the court are what we've had too much of in the past.
          The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off.

            It shows he wants to play and wants to be here. That's at least a good start. Anyone that can go from being ineligible to eligible in just a very short period of time has got to be determined.

            Let's hope he keeps it up and we never hear of the academic problems again.

              Absolutely. If there was anyone who looks like he was built for a pressing/fastbreak style of basketball it is Butler. I'm looking forward to seeing how he does in this kind of system.

                i saw him this morning in the RSC, and the kid had a pretty big smile on his face. The kid has surely earned the right to play on this team. And it sure would be a nice story if he turns out to be a succuessful player on this team. I am surely routing him on.

                GO SHOX!!

                  And everything fell perfectly into place for him as well. He gets to stay in school, gets to keep his scholly, and gets to continue to play basketball for a program that is definitely worth playing for.

                      Butler gives all WSU fans a reason to cheer for him to be successful on the court (and in the classroom).

                      Butler went from dismissed from the team and ineligible - to back on the team with his eligibility re-established. That's a lot for someone not yet 20 years old to go through.

                      The fact that he did it speaks volumes for his character. He had to apply himself in class and miss out on a summer doing it. He also had to show GM enough skills that Marshall felt he should have a spot on the team.

                      If Marshall can take advantage of strengths and Butler can learn how to get position for rebounds or move around box-outs (thin guys are better at that than wide-body guys) or maybe just get in a reasonable position and outjump guys for the ball. Maybe defend by blocking or altering shots, I will absolutely support Butler and hope he becomes a contributing Shocker.

                      I bet it gets real loud the first time he steps on the court at CKA.
                      The future's so bright - I gotta wear shades.

                            Last year during Shocker Madness he took a fast-break pass, full-speed, and soared to the rim letting it gently drop into the bucket with a defender ALL OVER HIM. It was a VERY agile, strong move for the then very green, and very thin Butler. Arbry will NEVER be a shooter but if he can just get his weight to at least 230lbs and hit that magical 6'9" mark he will be a special player for us!

                            GO SHOX!

                            GO ARBRY!

                              Aargh and others have said roughly:

                              "Butler went from dismissed from the team and ineligible - to back on the team with his eligibility re-established. That's a lot for someone not yet 20 years old to go through.

                              The fact that he did it speaks volumes for his character."

                              I hope the young man turns into an asset both on and off the court for WSU. But to give someone credit and adulation for digging themselves out of a hole, that THEY dug, this appears to be a lack of personal responsibility. If there were circumstances that led to his lack of academic performance that were beyond his control, then kudos to him, but if these problems were his own making, then I do not give credit for "cleaning up your own mess."
