    Shocked! Marquette has an uphill battle right now missing those 2. Maybe not as steep as ours, but still steep.

    I know some are speculating Howard would leave after this announcement, but that makes no sense for his career. Not sure where he would get drafted because of his size, but someone would have to take a chance on a scorer like that right? No way he would transfer......

    I cant believe the Hausers are transfering, both sitting a year! Must have been some real problems this year that we just dont see for this to happen.

    Who has to know what they are doing? The Hauser brothers or Marquette? I would think that Wojo would be getting the same type of negative chatter that LJ is getting after Brunk and JGB said that they were transferring.

    Whoa,

    This is a massive step down. Makes sense, but what a difference a day makes. Looks like we have pick up a home win for the year now.

    If Howard stays, him and McEwen make a really strong backcourt but they'll have to fill some gaps in on the grad transfer market. As the team stands now, I'd slot them middle of the pack with maybe a slight bump as a sign of respect for Howard. Honestly, as this team stands now, I'd put them on the same level as us. Howard is clearly better than anyone we have, but we definitely have more depth and more overall on-court talent.

    If Howard leaves, we could be talking 9th or 10th easily here. McEwem is good as a transfer and they have some decent role players, but losing your clear top 3 guys would completely wreck them for next season (at least).

    That’s even bigger news than Brunk and JGB transferring

    Has someone informed them that they have to sit out if they transfer?

    The kids. You don't just up and leave what would have been a top 10-15ish squad next year. Unless you have a really good feel for exactly where you are going. Sounds poachilicious to me. Already word on the twitter machine is VA is a front runner for their services.

    This is bonkers. Again, I keep seeing the UVA stuff, but oh my god can you imagine the meltdown if they transfer to Wisconsin...

    Yeah, with how fast they came out with VA leading and Wisconsin also considered I don't see how they couldn't have already been making arrangements. LaVall should make the call, but these guys are probably already all but signed to Virginia.

    Stunning development. Oh man, the Marquette board must be convulsing. The temporal relationship and common sense tells you there's a strong connection between Howard announcing he's coming back and then a couple days laters the Hausers announcing they're leaving.

    Edit: Maybe not. I suppose it could be compatibility with Wojo. I'd still put my money on how they get along with Howard.

    I seriously doubt they're "poachilicious." Like you said, I have to believe they already know where they're going. All the negotiating has been done. If it is UVA, only a team on par with them has poaching capability. And that sure isn't Butler.

    My guess it’s Howard because the Hausers have known Wojo for at least 3-4 years

    Oh yeah, poaching has been done by one of the big powers. There's only a handful of teams that could draw two big time contributors from what would have been the best team in the big east and one of the best in the country. UVA is one. And TB has strong Wisconsin ties.

    I didn't mean from our world of poach, poaching in general. This is a big blue blood play. Someone in the ACC or Big Ten is going to get two good players...I'm going to go with the masses that it's UVA. If not, Puke. I can see them at UVA before Puke though.

    I would guess WOJO. In the announcement on their twitter....not a mention of missing the coaching staff.

    It sounds more like they don't like playing with Howard more than anything. (Just guessing since they announced shortly after Howard said he's returning).

    Marquette messageboard has a link to a tweet saying Shaka is bringing them to Texas
