Thanks for posting, 9-9-9.

Loved this:

“To just have my name on the jersey, I know it’s not mine but it’s still cool to me,” Amadou remarked.

He definitely fits what appears to be Coach Smart's mold.   Long, athletic, big upside.   Eventually, he, too, is going to have rassle with a UConn/Seton Hall style big.

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

It’s not likely that MU jumps back into the top 25 anytime soon. We all know that. I’m going to enjoy seeing them play this year. The guards are young and they will develop. And there are outstanding guards ready to take over in two years. And play like tournament players. We’ll wait and see. I see good things. Good things are coming. The bigger players are here for a year or two. Prosper and Oso will be dynamic. Ben Gold, we hope is special,  and then you have Keeyan Itejere.  And it’s not a bad situation if your guards have a green light and hit shots.  Al is coming and others will follow. When the big boys join in the other guys follow.  Kids grow up quickly.  Enjoy it and never back down.  Give Smart 2 years and he will put a fresh coat of paint on MU and get us back to where we thought we were: relevant. Few teams have played in as many tournaments as Marquette.  That was a long long time ago.  Right. MU beat Nova twice last year.  When was the last time Nova lost at home?  I’m getting tired and I’m not a google guy. But don’t be discouraged. The program is astounding. And when you sit in Fiserv you will enjoy everything about it.

Plenty of folks said similar this time last year. I'm gonna stay optimistic because ... why not?
