Freshman orientation begins on August 22

Patrick Hazel and Scott Christopherson, welcome to Marquette.

Trevor Mbakwe and Damian Saunders.....tick tock, tick tock, tick tock. At this point, Trend Blackledge must be feeling pretty good about life at Marquette.

Is is possible that MU only bats .500 on its freshman commits for the 2007 class? If so MU will have slipped below the recruiting equivalent of the Mendoza Line for the time being.

I think we will bat 75%. I think there is very little chance that Mbakwe does not qualify but one never knows. I just hope he can practice sooner than Hayward was able to last year. I think the issues are different though and that Mbakwe's case is more routine.

I've been pretty optimistic about Mbakwe all along, but this has me a little skittish. I hope he shows up. Missing a guy like him - a guy expected to get valuable minutes - could be a huge disaster if something were to happen to Ous.
