If ( as it seems ) MU returns the top
9 players, and our whole starting 5 …

A top 5 prediction is completely reasonable.  Just like UCONN being in the top 5.  Top 1 or 2 ?  Wow.

I’m presuming the MSU loss will be all the motivation the team needs next

This feels a bit like deja vu.  Hopefully goes better than the last time this happened.

Yeah I refuse to buy into any of this until we have confirmation about who is coming back next year. I remember exactly where I was when I read we were listed #2 back in 2019 or whenever. A couple high minutes players leave and all of a sudden things aren't looking as rosy.

That being said, if we dont have any turnover, top 5 is absolutely deserved.

T Rank projections currently have three top 10 teams, five top 15, and six top 25 teams in the 2023 Maui field.

Absolutely loaded!

The last time MU was #2 in the "way too early" poll on ESPN was 2019 ... then the Hauser's wrote a letter.

Just saying

Is that true?

2. Marquette Golden Eagles

Before a late-season collapse, Steve Wojciechowski had Marquette atop the Big East and poised for a run in March. If Markus Howard returns to Milwaukee, expect the Golden Eagles to complete the task this time. The entire starting five should be back for Marquette, with Howard and the Hauser brothers leading the way. One key addition will be Utah State transfer Koby McEwen, who will bring size and versatility to the backcourt -- and enable Howard to focus solely on scoring.

----

As I said, this was all blown up a few weeks later when the Hauser's decided to write a letter and leave.

The “letter” preceded the article. And the Hausers left only a week after that article was written.

Well, if it happened in 2019, it's a sure bet to happen again in 2023.

History repeats itself 100% of the time.

I wonder who wrote the letter to Shaka. Probably Joey, pretending to be Kolek, in a clever scheme to mess with MU before the second-round game.

Luckily, Shaka realized the letter was a ruse since it was from Trent Kolek, and the only other player to sign the letter was Tyler Kohler.

But your claim that the Hausers "this was all blown up a few weeks later when the Hauser's decided to write a letter and leave."  They had written the letter weeks before that.  They didn't write the letter, drop it at Wojo's doorstep, and leave.

Except they have 3 players who could legitimately get drafted. All three go and they're still good, but not top 10.

I'd say 4. Clingan in the late first wouldn't shock me.

It was. I made no claims when the letter was written. Read what you quoted above "all blown up" is the totality of all the events in the weeks after the way too-early poll.

That includes time to have them reconsider.

That said, your fetish with me is really getting alarming. You need to find a new hobby, or at least try your right hand.

I'm reading what you wrote.  You wrote (pasting again), "this was all blown up a few weeks later when the Hauser's decided to write a letter and leave."  A few weeks later WHEN the Hauser's (sic) decided to write a letter and leave.  You're certainly making claims about when the letter was written.  You're claiming a few weeks later they made the decision to write a letter and bail, which is wrong.  They wrote the letter in season, prior to the article.  They announced they were leaving (probably decided prior to that day) exactly one week later.  So you got nothing right, really.

I admit to you intentionally misreading what I wrote to do what you always do with me, engaging in yet another pointless argument because you don't like me. This is about your personal vendetta, like all your constant criticism of everything I write.

You have now wrecked another thread.

And you made your point ... everyone else can decide what they want. So stop.

Lol.  I literally just read what you wrote.  If you don't want me to read what you actually posted, but instead read your mind on what you meant to post, I guess I'll apologize for that.
