Marquette fans, your nightmare is over
When Tom Crean left town for much, much less green pastures, MU's nightmare began. Thoughts of a team centered upon strong perimeter passing, offensive rebounding and jump shooting kept fans awake for hours on end. Is this how basketball would be played in Milwaukee?
Enter Buzz B! Williams. Buzz answered that question with a resounding, "NO!" Buzz's first move was to show Christopher Scottcrosspherson, a lanky, slow perimeter shooter the door. According to reports, Buzz let the door hit Scottcrosspherson on the way out. Buzz then went balls to the wall, re-filling basically the entire 2008 recruiting class. Fans waited anxiously, wondering if Buzz would bite on the more highly regarded tall, midwestern jump-shooters that now had an eye for MU. He didn't. Instead, he targeted junior college athletes, planning to turn them into basketball players. A much better gamble than taking high school basketball shooters and passers and trying to make them Big East basketball players.
But Buzz didn't stop there. It took about three months, but Buzz has completely filled the 2009 recruiting class with 5 players, the most recent of which is point guard Junior Cadougan (above). Cadougan fills quite a need on the team, as a ball-handling, athletic court leader. He fits perfectly with the rest of the 2009 class. He chose MU over offers from Texas, Memphis, Louisville, Tennessee, and other. And, most importantly, he's not white. With his commitment yesterday, Buzz has guaranteed MU fans that they will not watch a white MU basketball player at the Bradley Center until at least 2010. With the skill Buzz has shown to date, MU fans can rest easy that years of pasty misery are over.
