Holy Shit: Brad Stevens Is The New Coach Of The Boston Celtics

Humming along, day before a national holiday, late afternoon, nothing to see here—wait, holy shit, Brad Stevens just took the head coach position with the Boston Celtics. The 36-year-old Stevens had been in charge at Butler for six years, with two NCAA finals appearances, four Horizon League championships, and another… »7/03/13 5:52pm7/03/13 5:52pm

This Photo Of The Georgetown And Butler Bulldogs Is Just The Cutest Goddamn Thing

The Georgetown Hoyas and Butler Bulldogs each have a pair of adorable bulldog mascots. Today, Georgetown Jack and Georgetown Jack Jr. welcomed Butler Blue 2 and Bulter Blue 3 (Butler Blue 1 is apparently dead retired. Sad face.) to their campus for a summit of adorability. That's how we got the picture above, which… »2/08/13 11:59am2/08/13 11:59am

Four Butler Bros Struggled In Their Attempts To Coordinate A Group High Five Last Night

Butler tapped into the seemly-bottomless pool of Hinkle Fieldhouse magic last night to shock Gonzaga with a one-point upset before a national ESPN audience and the College GameDay set. With two national championship game appearances in a row, you'd think Butler fans would have celebration down pat. Maybe these… »1/20/13 11:20am1/20/13 11:20am

Butler Beats Gonzaga Thanks To A Miraculous Final Four Seconds

After a traveling call ended what should have been Butler's last chance to overcome a one-point deficit at Hinkle Fieldhouse against eighth-ranked Gonzaga, a turnover with 3.5 seconds remaining led to an off-balance Roosevelt Jones shot that found the basket and delivered Butler's Bulldogs a 64-63 win that preserved… »1/19/13 11:33pm1/19/13 11:33pm

Unranked Butler Knocked Off No. 1 Indiana In Overtime On An Awkward Floater From Walk-On Sophomore Alex Barlow

It shouldn't have even been as close it was down the stretch—Butler has been a tough draw since Brad Stevens became coach after the 2007, and it's doubtful that Indiana took them lightly, but this was a match-up of a No. 1 ranked team against an unranked opponent on a neutral floor. Indiana had come in winners of… »12/15/12 5:55pm12/15/12 5:55pm

Butler's Rotnei Clarke Hit A Wild Buzzer-Beating Three-Pointer To Defeat Marquette In Maui

While the Butler Bulldogs failed to make the NCAA tournament last year after back-to-back national championship game appearances, it seems the Hoops Nation magic hasn't left the tiny squad from Indianapolis. Rotnei Clarke, the embattled Arkansas transfer, erased a two-point Marquette lead at the Maui Invitational… »11/19/12 6:10pm11/19/12 6:10pm

Butler Coach Brad Stevens Is Still Too Boyish To Look Anything But Ridiculous When Complaining To Refs

Brad Stevens has managed the inconceivable feat of taking the Butler Bulldogs to the NCAA tournament final two consecutive years. He has not, as of yet, managed to advance his appearance past that of "awkward high schooler" and it's long taken away from the credibility of his attempts to yell at anyone. (He's 35.) … »1/29/12 2:00pm1/29/12 2:00pm

Jim Nantz Predictably Overdoes It With The Dog Puns

To be fair to Worst Man Jim Nantz, we understand that a Huskies-Bulldogs final is a bit like Christmas for him. A Christmas trimmed with multiple opportunities for insufferable references to dogs and winning. And so when the buzzer sounded, Nantz dropped three dog puns in under 20 seconds. It was either that he'd… »4/05/11 11:00am4/05/11 11:00am
