08:12 AM ET 01.14 | Brad Stevens and Butler can breathe a sigh of relief -- they hope so, at least -- in the case of Rotnei Clarke. [Clarke] found refuge Sunday in the familiar. He was back in the gym shooting. The Butler basketball player, who sprained his neck in a scary incident during the first half of Saturday's 79-73 victory at Dayton, has no timetable for a return to action. His father, Conley, didn't have a medical opinion to deliver. But he knows his son. "If they're thinking about not letting him play Saturday," the father said, "they're going to have to take him to another county." The 14th-ranked Bulldogs (14-2) will play No. 9 Gonzaga (16-1) at 9 p.m. Saturday in a rare Hinkle Fieldhouse meeting of Top 15 teams.

I'd like to see Mr. Stevens at work in a higher pressure environment. Is it football season, yet?

Aren't the winning losers supposed to announce their presence, along with their sin, on each and every thread while sporting their newly-appointed avi/moniker...?

He did that last week; this week 2 of his 1st round punishment. Let it slide.

No problemo. All the winning losers carried their monikers and avis held high, there were no slackers in the bunch, much to their credit.
