This is the second consecutive year a Butler Bulldog has taken the chance to jump from the Horizon League to THE league, as in the NBA. No one knows where Mack will be drafted, but his roommate and teammate for the past three years has all the confidence in the world in him.
Talking to Mack after the big press conference in Hinkle Fiieldhouse, he mentioned the possibility of the worst case scenario playing out. I asked what that was, and he said, “Not being drafted at all.”
There was no talk like that from Ronald Nored, who has spent the last three years defending Mack in workouts and practices, and becoming best friends with him since they were paired to room together as freshmen.
Nored also spoke of his belief in former teammate Matt Howard, and the steps that need to be taken for the Bulldogs to maintain their run of unprecedented excellence.
