Training the Butler Way

by Robb Reel

You're probably pretty used to folks bragging on their schools.  I know I am.  It's just a fact of life: if you went to an elite school, or your school did something great, you want to tell everyone.

I am awfully proud of my alma mater.  Butler University is long renown for excellent academics in the Midwest.  Though long steeped in basketball tradition, the rest of the country has only learned of the Bulldogs in the last decade with several Sweet Sixteen appearances and two consecutive trips to the brink of a title.

We have a certain way of doing things, dubbed "The Butler Way."  It's a commitment to integrity as the pathway to excellence.  In an era when NCAA violations and sanctions seem all too commonplace, the Butler Way takes the proverbial high road, the road less traveled.  That road now leads to a new chapter in the Big East.

Leave it to our reigning mascot Trip to train for this new challenge the Butler Way.

Go Dawgs!
