Shaka Pulling a TC Move...
« on: June 10, 2022, 09:10:12 PM »
...by unretiring a number. Kolek will be the first to sport #11 since Al had it retired to honor the Apollo 11 crew. I can't say that this one bothers me as much.

And the wisdom to know the difference.

No problem, only the Apollo 11 jersey was retired.  Last guy to have #11 was Pat Smith. Only other notable #11 was Walt Mangham from the late 50s.

Agree no problem. Have heard often Shaka loves Kolek.

Finally…I’m irrationally excited about seeing my old number being put back into circulation

11 is too good of a number not to be used  ;)

Perhaps Shaka believes Kolek will be able to sink a 3pt shot even if the basket is on the moon. We can only hope.

It was the '70s. Lots of dumb stuff happened. Have you looked lately at what's hanging way, way at the back of your clothes closet.

I have a friend who works for the team and he says kolek has been on fire off the dribble and catch and shoot in practice along with Sean jones being the real deal. Shaka has been emphasizing rebounding like crazy and has been “begging” oso to step up

Yup. I know it’s sarcastic and off-season ritual but someone actually shares basketball news and gets dogged.

I hope Kolek is killing it in practice…

But, Mike Deane once said ( or was it Allen Iverson ?) … no one ever scored a point in practice!?

Was it his idea or the athletic directors? It was dumb, because it had nothing to do with Marquette basketball and I doubt it made any difference to the astronauts. I doubt their families will be complaining about Kolek getting to wear number 11.

They cared enough to show up

People show up for awards, but I doubt it made a real difference in their life.

Pulling Apollo 11’s number was easy, probably the easiest move the team could have made.

The real question they have to ask is what they will do with #0. Markus was the #1 scorer in the schools history, but had limited team success. Plus looking back it is still ridiculous that #22 wasn’t really close to be retired for jerel.

My guess is the school might genuinely be biding itself time to see if markus has nba success going forward. If not I’m interested to see when #0 goes back into circulation. And when.

Zero will get retired and deservedly so.  If 22 was ever gonna be retired, it would have been years before Jerel even got on campus.
