Sean Jones will have fans out of their seats this upcoming season.

He’s so short that’s the only way they can see him!

Ha!  Goose I hope your sources are right.  Would love Dominic James part two and that would make us exponentially better as a team than we would be otherwise.  Would love some tough elite on ball defense.

I agree on more and more positive leaks. We did not have that excitement going into last season. My expectations are much higher than a year ago.

You clearly hate Sean Jones for some reason.

And Marquette, don't forget. tower is clearly anti-Marquette.

Unwarranted attack on the young man and our smaller citizens.  Do not be surprised in the future when you wake up in Lillput.

Hopefully not on the way to the exits.
But seriously, I am on the Sean Jones bandwagon.

I have heard and seen enough that I am very excited about Sean Jones. That being said,  you can never be certain how practice will translate to games. My guess is that Mr. Jones will translate very well
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.

I appreciate the joke.

I don't hate any player who suits up for MU.

After too many years, I am simply off the freshman hype train.

I like all of the freshmen and think
A.  They will all contribute this year.
B.  None will start or play starter's minutes, barring injury.
C.  All have the potential to start in the future.

Sean Jones?  I enjoy what I see in the videos and am looking forward to seeing him play.

Marquette is due for an unexpected frosh breakout.  Don’t know if it’ll be Jones but early reports are promising.  But like you said, he’s a frosh.

Apologize in advance for going off topic, but I had an interesting run in with a smaller citizen (a dwarf, actually) just yesterday.

Driving on the Kennedy in bumper to bumper traffic and (my bad) talking on the phone - so distracted, I rear end the car in front of me. We both pull over to the shoulder and get out of our cars. The dwarf approaches me and loudly says “I’M NOT HAPPY!” “So which one are you, then?”, I replied.

Tis the season to get amped up about freshmen.  He never misses a shot on those twitter videos.    It is easy to forget he is 5'10.   From a medium sized school in Ohio.     Not a 5 star.   Who has yet to play a second of D1 basketball.     He looks good, Coach Smart is excited about him, and I really hope he excels.   But I am not going to fall into the hype trap until I actually see him against D1 competition.

lol.  Pin this tweet.  Thanks for playing.

We haven’t had a difference maker guard since the 3 Amigos.  Naturally this will take some getting used to.  But as a former player who watched him told me: Sean Jones is the truth.  Shaka has done what Wojo couldn’t, recruit program changing guards.  Chico’s always told us it’s a guards game.  Shaka listened.  Thanks Shaka.  Thanks Chico’s.

Big time guards are the name of the game. I have always loved that Pitino embracing the importance of a game changing PG and that is the foundation of a winning program, imo.

Markus Howard wasn't a difference maker? DJO?

Hilarious.

You may be unaware of the UDRF Lenny?  The Underground Dwarf Rebel Force?  They are not to be trifled with and have the uncanny ability to attack when you least expect it.  There will be no warning and may God have mercy on your soul.

What difference did Sam ever make other than not win a tournament game at either Marquette or Virginia?  I’ll scan the rafters at both places for all his differences.  lol

Markus was probably the worst player in Marquette history.

For one thing, he personally gave up more than 5,000 points during his time at MU, and was personally responsible for us never making the NCAA tournament during those 4 seasons.

An infamous cancer, he also "ran off" Sam, whose offensive prowess was so unleashed at Virginia that he went on to score a whole ppg more there (including his clutch 4-for-16 performance in leading Va to a first-round NCAAT loss to mighty Ohio). Not to mention that Markus "ran off" Joey, who has gone on to true greatness under Sparty's Hall of Fame coach.

No wonder not one other school wanted Markus. He was the pits.
