I always love referencing the Sleepers media crew and some of their wild MU takes

They got a lot of podcast content so I enjoy listening to them.

Waddell newest take has MU at 8th in his preseason rankings(nice) but mostly due to his “working theory” that Kolek aftually makes us worse.
Lazar picking up where the BIG 3 left off....

Waddell is a Michigan State grad and a known Marquette hater. I can't listen to them.

Definitely hope to see Chase improve at finishing at the rim (when it's not a a wide open dunk). 

Ben had a couple of nice backdoor passes later in the conference season.  Obviously I don't expect the offense to run as much through him as it did Oso (as Oso was a unicorn in that regard) but I wonder if we'll see a bit of it. 

Said it before but big leaps from both of these guys can really raise the team's ceiling.

Yep.  Chase was actually a pretty big disappointment.  I thought he'd put it together more and be more aggressive to the hoop.  Maybe next year?

Big disappointment scoring inside the arc. His outside shooting was better than I thought it would be and his defense was a thing of beauty

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

Agree, but I think the finishing will come with added strength. He's got the athleticism to finish over people, but when a defender goes straight up with him the result is too often a missed shot and no call.

Royce's mom advocating for Marquette to add a 7 footer (which would potentially snatch playing time from Royce in some capacity. I think?).

Just wait until Royce's mom rolls into Milwaukee.

Maybe Scoop can't get Shaka's attention with all the great advice we offer him, but she's not wasting any time telling that we need a 7 footer who can shoot and rebound.  ;D

She will probably use the Rolls Royce hood ornament design as her avatar when she signs up.

What are you seeing that all of the national pundits are missing?

To be fair the national pundits missed a whole lot about MU in Shaka’s first two seasons here.

More likely she’s had a chat with her son - who has played with Amadou and Hamilton during his visits.

The Athletc has Marquette ranked 14th in its way-too-early top 25. Its synopsis on MU wraps up with this sentence … which mirrors my thoughts:

“These next two years should really show if Smart’s philosophy of staying out of the portal can work long-term, but he’s earned the benefit of the doubt so far.”

Completely agree with that sentence as well.  I’m optimistic it can work.
