If it's a viable option, we could play there.
If we are never, ever going to play there, it's not a viable option. Ainner?

In this thread, you have sided with both of these distinct opinions.

They are not distinct opinions. Why would you think they are?

I think the Mecca is a viable option.

I don't think it is an option we will ever have to use.

These are two opinions that don't contradict each other in the slightest.

Is it your belief that I can only call an option viable if I think it is the option that is going to happen?

Dodged it again.

If you say we are never ever playing at the MECCA ever again........how is playing at the MECCA an absolute viable option??

I dodged nothing. It's all right there in the post above.

The Mecca is a viable option. Not a good one, but a viable one. It is a basketball arena close to campus that can hold enough people. I don't think we ever end up back there because both Marquette and the Bucks want Marquette to play in the new arena. In the end, the Bucks will always offer a deal that makes playing at the new stadium the best option for Marquette. That means offering a price that isn't so high that Marquette is forced to take its second choice.

I believe we can and we will.

We've been close a couple of times only to lose our coach and start over. The key for us is to ensure our coach has all the tools and wants to stay. I'm hopeful we have that in Wojo.

I would note that in 1976 or 1977, no one thought Duke was a blue blood either. Being that good comes from a commitment by the university to give the program what it needs, the alumni to support the program and the community to embrace it. I think we have all of these in place at Marquette and if Wojo stays on the current track, we'll be there.

Keep in mind, it took Al about four years before we were REALLY good in a world that was entirely different than what we face today.

Depends on what you mean by blue blood. To be one of the top 10 programs of all time? Sure. To be one of the top 4 or 5 teams of a decade? Yes. I don't think we can ever be as dominate as we were in the 70s. I just think there is too much parity for any team to raise to that level again.

MU was once a college basketball blue blood. Arguably, we were the consensus Number 2 program of the Era. Clearly we were the non UCLA team no one ever wanted to play.

Although , we have fallen from those lofty levels, I believe we have  the fundamentals in place to make a charge back up the mountain. Our athletic department is very solid and provides a quality base line to build off of.  The school is willing to spend the resources on facilities and everything necessary to compete.  We are in a top tier conference. So the only thing left is the high level winning tradition  for 15 years and a Hall of Fame level coach.

Nice try at revisionist history. The reality is the US gave recognition to the Kingdom of Hawaii which ultimately led to countries all over the world recognizing Hawaii. This was done to protect American Interests versus European interests at the time.  Over time there were various internecine  battles among the Hawaiians which led to a circumstance which threatened  to disenfranchise the US Interests.  The US then flip flopped back and forth on various Hawaiian regime  change . Recognizing that they could not sustain independent status any longer the Hawaiians moved toward annexation.  Today the decedents of the original  Hawaiian benefit from a very large educational trust created by those original business interests. No ones culture or way of life was changed.

So again, a bunch of foreign businessmen held a monarch at gunpoint and forced him to sign a constitution that transferred all of the voting rights away from native Hawaiians to the foreign plantation owners. But its okay because it protected American interests over European interests.

That sounds like the same garbage argument as "Slavery was actually great for black people, if we didn't do it, they would be stuck in Africa right now!"
