Jae was the last JUCO to play basketball at Marquette. One of the (many) rubs between McKay and Buzz was Buzz wanted Jameel to redshirt to catch up on Larry’s new academic requirements. Jae was cleared by the NCAA after summer school work and was approved independently by MU Admissions, which after Crean, student athletes’ admissions were moved out of the AD. There are no JUCOs on any sports team at MU, nor have been for years when there was before. There were basketball JUCOs who were recruited to Oregon, Kansas, Louisville, Virginia and hey, even Georgia the last two years, among many other top basketball schools.

Draw your own slant.

I don't disagree that they made it more prohibitive. But they were willing to work with McKay and were coordinating his classes at Indian Hills & have since offered JUCOs. It's possible, but they've made it harder. I also acknowledge it's entirely possible what happened under Larry & the standards they kept in place allow for negative recruiting against Marquette for those players. It's far less likely we'll see JUCOs on MU teams, and frankly, that's okay. If they qualify & want to come, fine. If not, we recruit high school & transfer players and that's fine too.

I came from a 2-year school to Marquette and while most of my credits transferred, I had additional classes to take as requirements & because they classified some of my transfer credits as general ed, I had to cram in extra classes my third year at Marquette to qualify for a minor. And that's from the UW system, and I didn't have full time basketball to worry about.

How on earth did we get to JUCOs in the sell out discussion? Chicos?

It’s horsesh*t that some of your UW credits didn’t transfer brew. Marquette has a real problem with how they handle transfers. You’re not the first I know who experienced that problem.

It was frustrating. It was as I recall 4 English classes that were reclassified as general ed. I was on track to graduate with a Comm major & should've had far more than enough credits for my English minor, but suddenly I was told I needed additional classes in my last semester, including a Shakespeare class that was more basic than multiple classes I took at UWW.

I nearly had the same problem with a single English class I took from a university in Ohio before my freshman year (4 year school).  Fought it, and they gave it to me.  But not sure why Marquette thinks they teach English better than everyone else...

Judging by the grammar on this board (me included), they do not.

Not really. Buzz was just very well connected in the JUCO scene and got the best ones a few years in a row. It gave us an exaggerated sense of how much talent there is in that pool. Now that D1 is so large there is a place for almost everyone coming out of high school who has the talent to play at the D1 level.
Fair enough.

Hah, yes.  And to be clear, I'm only claiming I passed my required English classes.

While on the topic of Jucos, it is worth noting that many of the key players in Al's day were Jucos. Guys like Bob "The Black Swan" Lackey.

Just a question. Who are the current JUCOs being recruited by the high majors? I don't see many references to JUCOs in recruiting news any more.
