Title: Markus' head?
Post by: WhoaJoe2020 on January 25, 2020, 01:52:46 AM

I know the only thing that matters is winning and losing, but has anyone heard how Markus is doing after taking that elbow to the head?

He didn't look right after that hit and actually looked pale and glassy eyed in some of the close-ups.

Did Wojo say anything in the post game presser??

If anyone has heard anything and would care to reply I would appreciate it.

I had the same thought. I was surprised when they came back to see he was going right back into the game. At minimum I thought he’d be out for a minute or two while they looked him over.

He looked possibly concussed to me, but I’m not a doctor and didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn last night either.  Didn’t he miss a non con game with concussion symptoms?  The probability of successive concussions increases and can be more severe or need longer recovery.  Hoping he is ok.  He may have passed the tests on the bench immediately, but felt more effects as time went on.  Obviously, we will see.

That's what I recalled which is why I was really concerned when he went down. No word from the team yet, so hopefully no news is good news.

The team is going to keep it hidden anyways if it truly is a concussion.  Why?  Because their medical staff severely screwed up by letting Howard play through it, if that is indeed the case.

Major red mark on Wojo if Howard is out Wednesday with a concussion. Also, if he wasn’t able to pass concussion protocol last time, why was he even at the game? It all seems very dumb and dangerous to me.

If he is truly concussed the team won't be able to hide it. He will have to sit the next game. If they put him out on the floor and he got severely injured I can't imagine the uproar that would ensue.

In the Butler game if Markus said he was okay to play, the team could probably get away with it, but after a day to assess him fully there would be no plausible deniability.

Wrong. The person who gets hit in the head doesn't get to decide. The team cant get away with that if they knew he was concussed and then putting him in because he said he was ok to play. What the hell are u thinking.

The protocol is in place precisely to prevent either the team or the player from saying “rub some dirt on it and get back out there.”

I guess what I'm saying is that you can't possibly do the same level testing court side that you can post game. I don't know what the actual protocol is to allow a player to continue but I would imagine it's fairly standard. Quick tests of sensitivity to light and sound, historical and situational awareness, etc.

 All types of brain injuries are not the same and the onset of the negative effects can sometimes be delayed.

Regardless, Markus didn't look right after the elbow to the head.

So therefore the effects of the red herring concussion, didn't affect Markus's performance because the "effects can sometimes be delayed."

Whoa. You have posted over 40 odds times since the game with 95% on this play and the concussion you diagnosed on TV.  You might be right.  Or Butler may have made adjustments. Or it was both.

You seem certain of your finding to the point where you defend it over and over, and accuse MU as being incompetent. The rest of us see basketball reasons too...and trust and know MU's training and medical staff.  Don't you think that they were observing him over and over for the next hour and a half?

You are at the point of being over the top. Call me silly.

“Wojo should be commended for getting his team to play well despite injuries to Greg, Jayce, Theo, Koby, and now Markus.”

You love to point out how 50% of our team is injured, even when all those guys except Greg are in the rotation, and all of them but Jayce are playing max minutes (but only because that’s not his role).  Because if half the team is hurt, it really isn’t Wojo’s fault that they’re not playing to their full potential.  It’s just bad luck.

Even if Markus plays 38 minutes and takes 25 shots next game, I’m guessing there’s a good chance you’ll continue to talk about how injured he is.  It makes for a nice red herring.

I took a few screenshots (quality is best I could get) of the play and am just not seeing any elbow or malicious intent like a few others have mentioned.

Screenshot #1: Butler guy goes up with both hands as if to block the ball.

Screenshot #2: Best evidence I could find of an "elbow"

Screenshot #3 & #4: Markus appears to turn his head towards the hoop as if to see if the ball went in. Don't think he'd make that reaction if he just got clocked in the head.

Screenshot #5: Head hitting the chair.

You are at the point of being over the top. Call me silly.

Cite one example of me asserting MU was incompetent. I said Markus went to the sidelines and after a brief examination, and I'm sure some lobbying on his part, returned to the game where he looked and played like he was out of it.

It was a hard hit and Markus remained on the floor for a long time. It was not a nothing foul.

A player can pass the sideline concussion protocol and still be affected to a significant degree by a hit to the head. Are you suggesting it can't be a factor??

There's a very good article on how sideline concussion protocols can fail.

It's about the hit Ziggy Ansah put on Jimmy Clausen. People should read it and get a clue.

That's the only thing we disagree on. It looked like a frustration foul to me when he lowered his arms on Markus' head. Butler was already pissed at the calls Markus had received in the first half as evidenced by the T right before half. Then Markus burns them on a breakaway layup. to increase the lead. I've played a lot and I've seen the exact same foul many times.

When people casually dismiss arguably the most important moment in the game and then trash Markus??? Yeah I'm gonna point it out. I'm also going to call out a cheap shot when I see it. Baddley took out our leading scorer. Should I applaud him??

My opinion, it is on of the myriad of reasons why we lost, but not as important as not changing defenses on Kamar. Kamar is not a 3 point shooter. Play some zone. Double on the screens...something. If Coach does that, we don't even need to see Markus try to take over.

With Marquettes short bench and Symirs inexperience Markus almost had to play. Though after the foul he didn't play like he normally does. It reminded me of the Providence game when the refs let the Friars knock Markus around. He didn't look very good at the end of that game either, though this game was much worse.

You're wrong about the foul that wasn't called. It was a dirty play and should have been reviewed as a flagrant foul. I call it like I see it.

To your first point , I agree, Markus wasn't right, but with Marquettes short bench who do you put in?? Symir was getting roasted and Greg is out.

To your second point, I agree, if the refs would have looked at it and assessed a flagrant foul it may have changed the game.

To your third point, I mostly agree, but Baldwin was making some tough shots. It wasn't all bad defense, some of it was better offense. If Markus had been scoring on the other end like he normally does, Marquette still wins that game. I contend that the hit he took to his head was the key factor.

Fair take though.

The announcers, and every other blind umpire, missed the elbow to the head. Fortunately tower and others have the game on dvr and Markus definitely took an elbow to the head. The only real debate is whether it was intentional. I contend it was because of the exaggerated arm movement by Baddley. Others disagree. That's fine.

I've rewatched it a couple of times. While I agree there was an elbow to the head, I have no idea what "exaggerated arm movement" you are referring to. I see absolutely no evidence of it being intentional. Maybe it was, but I'm not sure what has convinced you that it's a certainty.

Pay attention to the turning of his body toward Markus when he swings his right arm down on his head.

It's also interesting to watch Baddleys actions after the play. He slinks away because he knows what he did.

We are now 36 hours removed from the incident, and have read ~50+ posts from you on this one particular play.  How long should we plan on you continuing to post on that play?

Pay attention to the turning of his body toward Markus when he swings his right arm down on his head.

It's also interesting to watch Baddleys actions after the play. He slinks away because he knows what he did.

Yeah...you have what we call confirmation bias. I'm not seeing what you are seeing and even if I was, it would tell us zero about his intentions.

I see the contact, though it certainly looks unintentional.

The angle Baddley took to block the shot did not allow for his body to blade in the direction of Markus unless it was intentional.

By the way, what did you think of Baddleys reaction??

It's  obvious you don't care about Markus getting hammered and the effect it had on his game. That's fine.

You do you.

I think you should have your own head checked. No seriously, you are over the top obsessing.

Noted, another scooper who doesn't care about Markus getting hammered and how it affected his game. That's fine.

I care about Markus. I also care about truth and your slandering of another player.

Intentional fouls and flagrant fouls are part of the game. I'm sure you've never seen a cheap shot before in basketball.

That play was intentional in my opinion and I think the video supports it.

It's part of a bigger issue with Markus, as he's  had his share of getting beat up and not getting calls.

You have your opinion, that's fine.

I will. Maybe you should stop claiming that others don’t care about Markus’ health.

I started this thread because no one seemed to be interested in Markus' condition or the lack of a call on what I thought was a flagrant foul.

People make lots of claims on message boards, the only people who should be bothered by my statement are those with a guilty conscience.
