Is this Muggsy under a different screen name? Sure looks like it.

I think it’s best for both the players and the program if TK and Oso go pro.  While next year may be a bit of a retooling without them, I believe we’ve seen the current team’s ceiling and am looking forward to the future and watching a new squad.

Will that new aquad you are watching have a higher ceiling than this squad?

Especially with Sean Jones injury situation I think it would be better for the program if Kolek came back.

Probably not better for him unless he really wants to play another year and doesn’t care about postponing playing professionally for a year.

He is a professional now and would likely make more money at MU than in any league other than guaranteed NBA first round money (including a two-way). A two-way player makes between $75-$250k.

Most highly competitive and skilled athletes don’t think about, “What if I don’t make it?” They assume they can compete and they really want the chance to do so.

No chance.

It may be considered a pipe dream by most that both come back, and suggesting otherwise might be frowned upon, but it is definitely NOT better for the program if Tyler goes pro.

It’s also not DEFINITELY better for TyKo if he goes pro either, as no one really knows what the future holds.

Marquette comes in as a top 5 team and national title contender if TyKo and Kam both return, especially if Shaka dips into the portal for some help.
Marquette is a not likely a top 25 team if Tyler goes, depending on the portal.

What if TyKo comes back, Marquette wins a Natty and he goes on to be a top 25 pick, and then has a serviceable and long NBA career? What if that happens and he wins PoY?
You might think “well that’s insane,” but it’s not that far fetched.
That would mean that coming back would be better for BOTH MU and TyKo.

I get the stuff about the future, but the future is now. One FF or Natty run would transform the program and university more than “moving on and letting the next guys have their chance.”
I also get that it’s likely a long shot that both return, but there’s no reason to shy away from the idea that it’s possible as long as we hear that it’s definitely not.

Dont get angry if he leaves, since it’s his decision and he would be following his dream, but don’t discount that maybe his dream includes some of the things mentioned above

If Tyko and Kam both return, MU has no scholarships.  So, 'dipping in to the transfer portal' requires a player to leave.

$85k in Rio Grande Valley or $2million in Milwaukee competing for a national championship?  What to do? 

I noticed from the revolving transfer portal that $$$ no matta.

This seems like someone hoping against hope rather dealing with reality.
