Let’s set the scene.
Marquette has 0 scholarships left to give for the 2016-’17 season with the additions of Markus Howard and Katin Reinhardt last week.
Marquette has very little size on its roster, with only two players (Luke Fischer and Matt Heldt) sitting 6-foot-8 or taller.
Marquette is actively recruiting at least two 2016 players (grad transfer LG Gill and high school recruit Kalif Young), with both set to take official visits next weekend. Gill is not a prototypical power forward, but has size at 6-foot-8 and is being recruited by Texas, Maryland and Iowa State. Young is a more typical “4” at 6-foot-9, 265 pounds and has Providence and Alabama as the other two suitors.
All three points are indisputable facts, not conjecture. Add them all up and what do you get? Somebody currently on the roster won’t be in the not-too-distant future. Big East Coast Bias did a good job of going through the suspects.
But guessing which player will be forced out without any knowledge is disparaging to the players involved and not really conducive to accuracy.
On its own, this is meaningless and speculating on what cryptic message this conveys would be a waste of time.
But guess who retweeted it?
Ok, that’s still innocuous enough, Wally is obviously family and those emojis are the 2016 version of saying Amen.
But this is the kicker. Guess which pair of brothers unfollowed Steve Wojciechowski on Twitter? Winner winner, the Ellenson bros. They both still follow all of their Marquette teammates, other coaches and even the school itself. They both used to follow Woj, but no longer do so.
Mom and Pop Ellenson also curiously stopped following Woj.
Things that make you go hmm indeed. Still not convinced? They all unfollowed the Marquette Basketball Twitter account as well.
I can’t point with any certainty when this occurred, but as of 10:40 PM Cleveland time on April 20, this was the case. Whether all this is right and what implications it may have going forward, that’s for a different day.
For now, all signs point to Wally being Woj bombed.
