Anybody that contends we will plug and play next year after Marcus leaves by guys developing and stepping up is missing the point.

He is incredibly valuable to this team and will leave a huge hole in the lineup next year.

In the meantime, just enjoy the show, as it's flat out filthy.

Go Blue

This x 100. We won't have a guy that just is a stone cold assassin out there that hunts for buckets. So happy for him. He deserves this with all the work he's put in.

That is awesome. So happy for this young man, who obviously worked his ass off and matured so much as a person, you can tell on the court. He does not get distracted or frustrated anymore, complain, sulk or shrug shoulders anymore. Just plays so much more focused (especially on D) and aggressive now, and keeps a great attitude on top of being an assassin offensively.

I admit I have been one to question Mac and some of his decision making in his tenure at CU (some of it fair, some of it perhaps not fair, admittedly), but MF has made this transformation from the last 2 years to this year, and that has come under Coach Mac's watch (and assistants). And that deserves huge credit and should not be taken for granted.

Not that Marcus did not make this decision and put in the work on his own, but having a steady, level headed, supportive coach like Mac certainly helped this happen, and I think that is as important a characteristic of a Coach as anything else.

+1. I'm sure k-state fans would have taken the MF of the last two years back in a heartbeat
