I propose #Markus4NPOY  It's succinct and everyone we want to influence would know what that means.

Wouldn't want it to get confused with the the campaign for this Markus

Anyone know how long it'd take before Markus is clear to play without the mask? I'm thinking 3-4 weeks?

Impossible to name a singular GOAT over 100+ years.  We have about 6-8 of them, Markus without question is in that group and clearly near the top.  Hard for me to put him ahead of a guy like Butch, Chones, Bo, Or Wade.  But i think he has surpassed Meminger, Lucas, Thompson

There's a strong case for including Markus on the Mt. Rushmore of Marquette basketball.

He's the school's all-time leading scorer and will end his career as the most prolific scorer in Big East history. When it comes to offense, he's as good as any of the legendary Warriors.

Greatest Of All-Time? That's a tall order. Wade is the best player I've seen in an MU uniform. It's not even close. But I wouldn't call him the GOAT. Thompson held the team scoring record for five decades. But he didn't have the same postseason success as Meminger, Lee, Ellis, Walton, Tatum, etc. And I'm not sure anyone was as dominant as Jim Chones was in his two seasons at Marquette.

Put it this way -- Markus is the greatest player at Marquette since Wade. That's enough for me.

There's still a lot of MH's story to be told, but if he finds next level success and continues to represent the university, I would see our Mt. Rushmore as...

Your continued concern for others and their well being makes you Poster of the Month and don’t let anyone tell you differently. You are what makes MU grads, and especially lawyers, so special.

Markus is the greatest scorer in MU history and the most fun Warrior to watch since Wade.  That said, I’d never heard Lawrence Moten’s name mentioned on any Big East broadcast until the Nova game, so I’m not sure the record he broke on Wednesday means a whole hell of a lot.

I agree, though I vaguely remember him getting the record, but FWIW, Moten was a tremendous college player.  I have no idea who the leading scorer in any of the other conferences is, though I assume it is probably Pete Maravich in the SEC.

GOAT's (maybe the most played out term in all of sports) win championships and in college basketball, take their teams to Final Fours.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

U cannot put bo ahead of butch

Sorry gang, here's the GOATs, restricted to players and a continuation of what I said earlier.

1)  Wade -- No doubt. He was the official GOAT the day we massacred Kentucky in Minneapolis. There was no one like DWade.
2) Butch and Bo -- You can't have one without the other, as we learned in 1978. They're like Sonny and Cher, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Romeo and Juliet, the Captain and Tenille, etc. There's a banner hanging in the Computing Castle thanks to these guys.
3) Maurice Lucas -- The backbone of our 1974 NCAA runner-up team. The difference between 1974 and 1975 was Maurice Lucas.
4) Jim Chones -- What would have been
5) Markus -- Wow, what he has done for this program on so many levels is spectacular.
6) Earl Tatum -- He was someone really special
7) George Thompson -- He got it started.
6 Honorable Mention -- Bob Lackey -- My FOAT (Favorite of All Time). The guy was the nastiest, fun-loving guy around.

Of course, no one but Al has their name painted on the floor.

how so? As a commentator or a player? I rarely watch national NBA broadcasts so I haven't heard him in a long time.

But, I will say this. Nobody considers Marino the "GOAT" due to him not winning a Super Bowl. There's a reason certain players are categorized as "best to never win a title (Barkley included)."
