    Yeah, he was a big SEC guy if I recall correctly. UGA alum.

    Pretty obvious that ESPN has told him to keep a low profile. Worth mentioning that they still haven't retracted his story.

    In 1983, during the NCAA playoffs Pace Mannion tripped during an open court layup. They created a fan club and they even chanted "Pace" everytime they wanted him to come off the bench. He played for Utah Jazz, Spurs and Warriors. His best days were at Utah Utes.

    Wow. A little shocking that he took Duke off his list.

    I think Marquette has a shot here because they might be in a better spot to win next year, possibly even the next 2 years considering the shitshow that has been going at Tuscon.

    I still think he ends up at Zona. Might be the pesimist

    But Marquette has been a massive contender for a while.

    He’s stated in the past he prefers a non blue blood. His family is excellent friends with the Baileys(Brendan Bailey back from his mission this year). He knows Markus a little as hometown guys and he’s got a great relationship with Stan Johnson our west coast recruiter.

    We are considerably better off from a basketball stand point next year. But zona is still zona and home.

    Hoping the lure of major minutes on a stacked team of Seniors and Juniors wins him over. We’d be borderline too 5 I think.

    As I figured once things ramped up he’s staying home.

    Can’t blame him. We ain’t proven and it’s home.

    Will hopefully regret it tho. MU has the considerably better roster for a change.

    Tough blow for Marquette. That could have made a big impact for them.

    I thought they had a serious chance just because of all the shenanigans going on at Arizona, but in the end, they still had enough clout.

    The blow will be determined.

    With McEwen elgible next year we are still gonna be a stacked veteran group. Now this may avoid an additional transfer of a solid role guy(I’m expecting at least 1 guy to go anyways).

    Really wanted Mannion to give more of a certainty. But it may end up being fine
