Set your Batwatches for 4:45

All thanks to Dweeze for the time.

Oh, and one name that was conspicuously absent from my prognostications below (which, I need not remind you, are all pulled from asscracks, be they mine or others) was Butler's Todd Lickliter. Lickliter's one of those bullcrap, middling candidates that was only named COACH OF THE YEAR!!! this season.

Here's the rest of his bio. No light stuff, this:

The current Butler coach already owns the top two single season win totals in Butler basketball history, and he has the best winning percentage of any coach in the Horizon League with a 102-54 (.654) career record. He ranks third among the "Top 10 Best Career Starts By Wins-2 years" in the NCAA Division I, trailing only Bill Guthridge of North Carolina (58 wins, 1998-99) and Everett Case of North Carolina State (55 wins, 1947-48). Lickliter led the Bulldogs to an unbeaten record at home (12-0) in 2002-03, and he's guided Butler to a 57-10 home mark over five seasons. He's also directed Butler to 45 wins away from Hinkle Fieldhouse in five seasons. The Bulldogs, under his direction, are 3-3 against teams ranked in the "Top 25," and own three of the "Top 10" winning streaks in Butler history. Three of his first five teams have ended the year in postseason play.
His overall record is 131-61 at Butler. Iowa could do a whole lot worse.

More tonight as it develops.
