Ummm I see quite a few Marquette mentions.

Maybe more have been added but I read through them right before I posted it and only saw two.

This is interesting. So they have three players mentioned with legal issues and another who just decided to transfer on a whim? 🤔 me thinks there's something more to come on akinjo

Maybe he saw his buddy Leblanc getting kicked off and others on the gangplank and wants off the sinking ship.  Nothing discipline wise, just unhappy.

Plausible. Then my last thought would be why Leblanc. Is GT going to fight this and he was the only one with an iron clad case? I'm not trying to start rumors it just doesn't make sense to me that they'd kick off 1/3

Akinjo wasn't very good last year and hasn't been good yet this year.

Still a big loss from a depth perspective and both guys had upside.

Akinjo lit us up n cost us a BE title

Yeah, no mention of Akinjo.  Probably got wind of other players besides his buddy Leblanc in trouble and is getting out before the next hammer falls.

Was just about to post that there was another legal issue involving more than just Leblanc and Alexander.

Based on the filed legal complaint, there may be even more to this story to come out.

But no mention of Akinjo in any complaints. His story really seems to be that he wanted out, and had no other mitigating circumstances.

When I first read the title, I thought it said Akanno transferring.  Whew.

Me three.

Glad this is all Ewing's problem. Better GT than us!

I cannot imagine why any school, especially a Catholic school would want this type of negative publicity and arguable why schools try very hard to make sure the right types of kids are coming to their institutions.

Sucks.  You cannot control these situations 100%, but can certainly be burned hard if the coaching staff isn’t ultra careful on who they bring on campus.

To be fair. The complaint alleges that Leblanc and "his friends" committed burglary, and then Leblanc threatened "bodily harm" that is documented in text messages.

Read it too.  The exact wording, in the "other information" was:

Quote
In response to the threats by Joshua LeBlanc and his two friends, my roommates and I have filed multiple police reports that are pending currently and being investigated.  We continue to fear for our personal safety and well-being

So, 2 friends (surprised only one is listed) and roommates mentioned.

Yeah, the problem here is "bad publicity".

And seminaries should have been more careful about whom to admit also. An epidemic of pedophilia can result in bad publicity. Some victims, too, I guess...but the bad publicity!

Excellent point. Couldn’t agree more. Yet you seem to agree that MSU is a “better program” than Marquette. Where’s the outrage at the horror show that is the entire MSU athletic department?

I will give you the benefit of the doubt, as your succinct and accurate reply to my original post about Virginia hoops was solely focused on uVA.

But I suspect you would say MSU is a better program than MU when it fits the narrative.

Really poorly handled by Georgetown. Sam Vecenie is reporting the two transfers are not linked. Akinjo just wanted to leave, but by bundling the release and letting it get out that both were kicked off the team, Akinjo got tied into Leblanc's actions. That's a really bad look.

EDIT: Worse look, crimes committed in September, restraining orders issued November 5, all the players involved played Saturday. That's bad for Ewing.

A sexual assault survivor & activist on Twitter said she worked with Georgetown on these types of issues in August and had special sessions with the athletics department. If the staff was advised how to handle these situations 3 months ago, hard to see how they will survive this.

I'm going to agree with brew. This looks damn bad for the GTown program.  And if Akinjo is simply jumping off a sinking ship Georgetown's decision to include his departure in the original press release is inexcusable.  I'll ask it here first.  Does Ewing survive this?  Does he even make it to Christmas?  Does this similarly implicate the AD?  This has the potential to be very, very bad.

I was only referring to the relative strengths (i.e., success on the court) of the basketball programs.

I could see the AD escaping since they had someone addressing the staff on this specific issue just over 3 months ago and that same person is now asking "what did they know and when did they know it?"

AD could easily shift blame to the basketball staff, saying "I tried to provide education right before the season and they ignored it."

All the Nojos and Sosojos (myself included) out there must admit that the fact that there hasn't been a wiff of this kind behavior/culture under his tenure is worth a lot. Although I also don't think NCAA success and clean programmes with quality kids need be mutually exclusive.

Potentially worse look. The accuser is claiming that there were prior reports of assault on at least one of the accused. Seems to imply that university records will indicate they were aware of these prior assault accusations.

Wow. Horrible stuff.

I actually feel bad for Akinjo. He seemingly didn't deserve this.
