Incredible coup, if Marquette achieves it. To ‘steal’ an AZ native from U of AZ—despite the ‘noise’?!!? Wow.
I dream that one day soon we can sign a 5* from ‘whatever’ State.
My motto is: Win and win crazy.


I like Wojo. I think he'll be a prime candidate to replace coach K eventually.


Pace Mannion (Nico's dad) and Thurl Bailey (yeah, that Thurl Bailey) are long-time friends. They briefly played with one another in Utah (Jazz) and overseas for a couple seasons. They use to also call Jazz games together, although I believe Bailey still is an announcer.

Their children are also friends (Thurl's son, Brendan Bailey, is at Marquette), hence why Mannion has Marquette in his final two.

Off-topic a bit, but I didn't know Thurl Bailey called games. Makes sense: In the (terrific) documentary on NC State's '82-'83 championship run, I was amazed when I heard him speak. A world-class baritone who could've made a fortune doing voice-over work.
