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

You have to understand, Dung knows ball.  His posts in the game thread explaining where Marquette is lacking really help someone understand the game.

He has this stat of head-to-ass that really paints a picture of how the game should be played.
Ramsey head thoroughly up his ass.

Starters:
G - Kam and Stevie and Chase
Bigs - Ben and Jop

Reserves:
G - Tre and Zaide and Sean when he returns... with a splash of DO
Bigs - Al, Cade, with a splash of Royce

Honestly, we don't NEED a portal player, but if Shaka finds someone who wants to win and play within the team system I'd be fine with it.  Need someone who buys in though.
The line up outlined above will be very competitive next season.

Sean Jones game was best on speed and the ability to change directions. I hope I am wrong, but I do not see him coming back from this injury.

Huge drop off at point. No floor leadership with Oso and Tyler gone. Big loss in rebounding without Oso and Kolek. Need another wing shooter.
Leadership will likely fall to stevie.

Yup. Went from Microsoft to Google for everything, including Sheets, and it’s all awful.

Potentially Shaka has Sean sit the entire year out to complete heal and strengthen. A one year PG Rental then becomes an option.

In this lineup the weakest link is Jop and the 4 position in general.  Someone needs to step up and be able to play D at this position (first) and then to generate some offense in spurts as Ben did this year.  Ability to attack the basket would be great.  Above the rim would be even better.

Jop defended pretty well towards the end of the season.   My concern on this roster is rebounding the ball and depth up front.  I also think Kam is more comfortable playing the 2.  The biggest question as we stand right now is whether our soph bigs will contribute and if either of our Frosh are immediate impact guys.  Both have good size.  They can help immensely as switchables but of course there is a learning curve.  If Benny and Chase bump up their production with their extended mins we could be okay.  Ross is the player I expect to a consistent ginsu knife guy on both ends of the floor.

You do not need to be a doctor to see that Sean Jones's game depends having on solid knees.

Yes, being undersized with a game predicated on speed and explosiveness, Sean has a long road ahead.    I am rooting for him.

It’s really just hoping there is significant development/improvement from multiple guys over the summer.

I expect that the players will progress as normal.   
I hope Ben is healthy this summer.
I expect Stevie to work on his ball handling and shot.
I hope Chase can get and stay healthy.
I expect Tre and Zaide to have a better understanding.
I want Amadou and Hamilton to be stronger.
I want Sean to rehab and be supported.
I want Owens and Parham to not be overwhelmed.
I want Kam to see the floor.
I want Jop to get his shot off 10% quicker.

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.

MU will be younger than this past season.  But there will still be plenty of continuity.

I agree with this analysis.
