Year in Review: Deonte Burton

We’re doing a “Year In Review” series, in which we review how awesome or horrendous or spectacular or spectacularly frustrating each player’s season was. And no, we did not copy Anonymous Eagle’s “Player Reviews” series. Okay, maybe we did. WE’LL MAKE SOME CHANGES ALRIGHT!?!? Anyways, we’ll go by ascending class order, and by alphabetical order in those classes. First we went against our own rules … Continue reading Year in Review: Deonte Burton

Sorting Out The Recruiting Situation

It’s almost astonishing how quickly our hailed, nationally-ranked recruiting class has caught fire since Buzz Williams packed his bags for the supposed holy land of basketball at Virginia Tech. Sure, the hiring of Steve Wojciechowski has been a reason for hope (and the first one in an eternity and a half), … Continue reading Sorting Out The Recruiting Situation

Recapping the Shaka-Smart-To-MU Twitter Dumpster Fire

The report was as unofficially official as it could possibly get. Shaka Smart was already on his way to Milwaukee. It was a done deal. What could’ve gone wrong? Well, a lot of things, apparently.
