Whatever became of Freeway?

Can we agree that the program bottomed out when Dukiet let him sit on the bench?

Last time I saw Freeway was at Major Goolsby's during the Packer's run to their last Super Bowl. He was holding court during one of the games, I think it was the game against the Falcons.

I do know, Newsie is right on you knowing ball.

Freeway is still everywhere. He alive and doing well. He is still pulling for a MU dynasty and no home losses for a decade. New stomping grounds is the bars by State Fair in West Allis.

Good to hear!  He was a big part of my MU years.  I was at The Gym once and he comes up to me and says “How about Horace Grant and the Chicago Bulls?”  Liked that he didn’t go with the obvious and mention MJ…lol.

Mike was a fixture at The Gym Bar for many years. He and Manny were two legends during my time at MU.

Are we sure Freeway isn’t Muggsy?

Too tall.

And doesn't say "attack" enough. Great drinking game for the game threads -- drink every time Muggsy types "attack." Make sure to have medical personnel on standby.

Muggsy is a scoop legend in my book, but a way to go to match Mike as a MKE legend.

Freeway is still around. Saw him in Goolsbys twice this month.

He appears to be eating well ( and often).

Goose, I’ve seen a “Roosevelt McCarter” posting on Marquette’s Facebook page.  Could that be the genuine article?

That would be him. I am a big fan of his postgame videos on FB. I do agree with Dribbler, Mike has not missed many meals of late. I have seen him several times over the past year and not much has changed with him.

Dang.  I didn't even put 2 and 2 together.  Roosevelt McCarter added me on LinkedIn over a year ago.  I don't really use LinkedIn (the only time I've been looking to change jobs in the last nearly decade is when I made the move to Columbia...thank God I held onto my job after Keefer stalked me on what I'm guessing is LinkedIn because he used my title and everything when emailing the HR department over his concern with my Scoop usage...you'd think I'd learn but here we are...), so I pretty much accept anyone who sends an invite to connect as long as I either recognize their name or something about them (mutual connections, work place, school, whatever).  We have 24 mutual connections.  Sometimes I get a random message from this person.  The most recent was, "Happy Tuesday!" back in December.  Good to know it's Freeway.

LOL, the fact he is on LinkedIn is great. Anyway, I have three mutual connections! None associated with Marquette though...

When in doubt, attack.  I will never abandon this hoops philosophy.

I was thinking the same, though I've not seen Freeway since the early '80s.

I saw him at Goolsby’s a few weeks ago, too.
