T-Rank already updated MU without Bailey and dropped from 62 to 77

If Carton doesn’t get a waiver we tumble to 102

I personally will miss Bailey. Was putting it together in spurts & always had high ceiling. Would have loved to see him take on more of a load this season. Wish him the best!

I by no means meant to make fun of rob frozena

We have an honest to God, "I don't give a shyte" bad boy on our hands.

Not capitalizing "rob frozena" went a bit too far, though.
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

He and his handlers must not think he can play in the NBA.....ever.   If he stays at MU and has a good year or two, he has a chance.  With this, I certainly don't see him getting drafted and I don't see even a G-league offer.  He'll go to Europe and make bucks, which is good for him if that's what he wants.

He's going to be a 22 year old junior, let him enjoy Europe and make a living.

Unfortunately, I think that's all there is going to be to look forward to this year. They were a borderline NCAA tourney time the way it is, now with Brendan leaving I don't see it. They really need to bring in another eligible player for this year. Unfortunately, not much out there. I hope they prove me wrong and somehow get in the tourney, but I'm not sure that's going to happen.

This thought did just cross my mind though....Could there actually be an NBA GM out there who would throw Thurl or owe Thurl such a huge favor that he would actually sacrifice his 2nd round pick to take Brendan and let him ride the bench?    Anything is possible I guess.

I'm not that surprised. He spent two years on his mission and had (relative) freedom and was independent. He came back, went to college and may have chafed at the structure and limitations, and decided he didn't want that and just wanted to play ball. It's common among those who return from their missions. Does anyone know if he got engaged or married while on his mission? That's another factor in kids who leave after coming back.

His dad has a lot of connections and will help him get hooked up somewhere in Europe.

You obviously don’t know much about Mormon missions if you think it’s a ton of freedom and that being in college is more structured.

This is when I enjoy Marquette basketball the most.  Some talented, untested players who could surprise everyone.  Just enjoy the game.

Why does it suck for us. What about all the commotion when Hausers left? Remember all the posts about if a guy does not want to be here, then good riddance? There are adequate replacements for Bailey. He would not have been a difference maker. Good luck to him, but his pro career will be overseas, not the NBA.

we were a top ten team with the Hausers. Without them an 8-10 Big East team.

Bailey, after having not played in two years, was our fourth leading scorer on a team with a shoot first, second and third player and would be our second leading returning scorer. He was our second leading rebounder too (top returner).  This is a significant loss.
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

Good luck Brenden.  I will always remember the butler game when he got to hear the roof pop off of the fiserv for the first time.

Good luck to Brendan, but even a Euro pro league is going to be looking for more sonsistency than he showed for us last year - multiple games in absentia.

Weird decision overall. I'm more clueless on this one then Blue.


I guess we will have another year full of excuses.

He's just a guy. If the team's gonna suck next year I'd rather see Oso and Lewis than watch Bailey fade in and out of games.

I agree with this analysis. I'm actually glad he's moved on.
No doubt there are cultural differences, but sports is important for many Asians.
