Luke's the first guy with that size and decent hands we've had in a while

I think Luke is a true Aircraft Carrier type center, which we haven't had in a long time.


Yes Luke could very well be better than OXtule (together or seperate) but let's not pretend we have been missing decent play at the 5 for many years. 

* Gardner was one of the best scoring big men in the BE
* Three years ago (second S16 season) Otule played so well in the second half of the year he almost single-handily carried us into the second week of the tourney.  At that time many here were wondering where Otule would be drafted.   

Just trying to stop the revisionist history/collective amnesia

No revisionist history here. Gardner was 6"8, Luke is 6"11, he doesn't have the same size as Luke. Ergo, the comment was correct.

Otule was only effective on one side of the ball. I loved the guy but he NEVER had a game like Fischer had against Arizona State. And that was Luke's debut for Marquette.

And as I recall ONE poster on here thought Otule was getting drafted. The rest of us laughed at him.

Brandon Key is no relation to Damon. Damon's son is Jaylen Key who is a fine player himself committed to Northern Illinois.

I love Chris and wish we still had him for a 7th year. But by Aircraft Carrier I mean a 20 point 10 rebound kind of guy big man who is the focus of the opposition.

I highly doubt Luke will ever live up to your definition of "Aircraft Carrier" either.  Seriously, do you know how rare a player averaging 20 and 10 actually is?

 Luke's game against ASU would have been below average if 20 and 10 was the standard.

Great job. When I first looked at the post title I didn't catch the date and thought someone was crazy. Now if Kennedy is coming back then SMU should shoot back up, but kenpom has had the aac behind two mid-majors all year and it was a stretch for me to leave them classified as a high major.

I love the new big east, but I still wish UConn would downgrade football and come back. If that happened and Georgetown would let VCU in I'd love to see that 12 - but short of that the 10 team round robin looks great.

This is one of the best things I've seen written on the issue. Very fair take.

http://www.firstthings.com/blogs/firstthoughts/2014/12/behaving-badly-at-marquette-university

Good article (though I somewhat kind of disagree on the free exchange of ideas part).  I especially like the point about calling out the student by name and potentially ruining her academic career.  I think he could have made his point without naming her explicitly.

Anyway, try to keep in mind MU's delicate position here.  MU cannot fire the PolSci prof because that would outrage conservative students, alums, and faculty (in addition to the hurdles involved since he is tenured).  However, MU also feels that it has to respond to the chorus of left-leaning students, alums, and faculty, who are calling for some action.

If MU can make it look like it is taking the issue seriously, while only administering a light slap on the wrist, hopefully they can appease both sides until this whole thing blows over.

I don't know if this is the strategy that the MU administration is actually following or even if it is the moral one, but if it is their strategy, I can understand their rationale.

Mods, while I would completely understand if you had locked this thread up seven posts in, I applaud you for letting it run its course.

He was hurt in like the 8th game our 2nd S16 year. I don't really remember that the year before. I remember Junior turning it on.

You are not really thinking through the meaning behind posts before replying are you?

I've got assigned seats. I think they sold the tickets by upper/lower first and then assigned seats based on PPs.
