Just didn't understand why then you were projecting out to 35?

Because just because my opinion is top 28 doesn't mean that someone who thinks 35 isn't realistic. My opinion is just an opinion,  not a fact.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

We have made it through the weekend and no official word on JC scheduling a campus visit with Louisville. Hopefully that means he was non-plussed with Mack's pitch. Also no official word on him adding any more in home visits. Hoping we get this locked down on campus in two days.

My point is simply based off getting the team everyone is counting on for next season. Without a real PG it is going to be difficult to meet many folks expectations.

Okey dokey, Goose. But I will say this sounds a lot different than, "If Wojo doesn't get Chartouny, he gowne."

Good news is that Milwaukee is looking very Canada-like.  He's feel right at home.
My expectations for Marquette basketball in 2018-19: Top four in conference.  Five seed in NCAA.

Brutal. Horrendous timing. Hopefully the obvious basketball fit overwhelmingly overcomes that downside

I said if he does not land grad PG, his days may be numbered. Again, even TAMU said that if this upcoming year is a bust, that he would have Wojo on or close to hot seat. Not sure on why my statement is so far off base. It is simply off my belief that next year’s team will likely have similar success as this year’s, without a proven PG.

Chartouney visiting today or tomorrow? 

Any updates on McEwen?
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

It would be hard to believe Wojo can not sell somebody on the opportunity to start on a Big East team that would have a slight chance to compete against Villy.  All the pieces are in place for the upcoming year and even the following year even better. more experience.  See what
happens, anybody seen the Burke kid play?  Is the Utah St. kid visiting?

I haven't seen anything new about McEwen.

I agree completely. It should be a very easy sell. That was part of my thought process as well. I would like to think it is an easy get, regardless of the crappy weather for the kid’s visit.

I agree recruiting is never easy. That said, like anything in biz, some deals are easier than other deals. I would like to think MU is currently a better option for a grad PG than Louisville, especially if he is the missing piece to top 20 team.

You do have to wonder why he hasn't scheduled a visit to UL yet, after they just had an in home with them. Could it be, he fully intends to commit to MU barring something disastrous happening that would make him change his mind??

McEwen would be a very good pickup for the program. I like traditional two year transfers who have proven production.  They get a year to work out, build team chemistry and be positioned to come out of the gates strong.

Anyone seen this kid play?  Looks like a pretty inefficient player per Pomeroy.  Shots percentage went up 5% as sophomore and his eFG% dropped from 55.6% as frosh to 47.8% as sophomore.  O-Rating of 96.9, and about 93.0 over 25 games against Tier A&B competition.

His freshman year numbers were good. They did lose a pair of senior starters, but the team had pretty comparable numbers so I agree that's a concern.

One interesting note was how much as McEwen went, so went USU his sophomore year. It's an arbitrary cutoff, but in games where he had 95+ ORtg they went 13-2. In games where he was below 95, they went 3-12.

I'd hope the year would help him improve his shot, and he is truly an elite rebounder for his size, but he doesn't have the jump off the stat sheet numbers someone like Rowsey had.

Also he did have an injury and was the focus of opposing defenses per an article I googled re his injury.

But as you noted looked very efficient as a freshman. The hope with McEwen is that with a year off he could get back to freshman year form. Marcus Foster was a similar situation when he transferred to Creighton. He had an amazing freshman year followed by an inefficient and blah sophomore year. He took a year off and was then All Big East for the Jays.

Note, I am not saying McEwen will be the next Marcus Foster. I am saying that there have been times when a player who sophomore slumped transferred and ended up getting better.
