Perhaps I should rename this thread "Why I'm Not Concerned About Wojo/Coaching Staff."

The OP reminds me of a constitutional critic trying to figure out the "original intent" of the signors of the constitution, ignoring that our own bias will inevitably lead to a biased result. And ignoring that we don't have enough context or know how the few words were chosen, etc.  Limited info, a few words, let's not make big general statements or get all up in arms.    

You have to get out of your own way on this one.  And don't look for meaning where there is little or between the line meaning and then try to find meaning that fulfills your preconceived ideas.

 My summary of this thread for the OP: BD's words are like the constitution, or, dare I say like a religious text... to be debated as to their true meaning and depth and how they inter-relate with reason, reality, and the text itself, etc.  To try to get deeper than the words were meant to be and for each individual to apply their own bias and preordained beliefs to the words to come to a conclusion.  

BD wrote a few comments that were much appreciated.  Let's not make them into some huge religious text with more depth and meaning than they were intended to convey.  Why read more into it than we are going after some guys, the staff feels good about it but there is a lot of known competition.  Heck, if I had a few bucks for each insider who said the staff felt great about a recruit our we wouldn't trade MU's position with anyone and then we didn't get the recruit.. I'd be eating lobster at Harbor House tonight.  

 BD has to shake his head at the insanity. I await more words from above when BD is ready to bless us with more info.  However, I suspect that this thread has revealed that we are not ready to receive the trust or more info from BD.

...Though Marquette has a lot of their key pieces back....       While I want to believe that Haanif is going to contribute right away, that sentence makes me seriously question the rest of the article. 

I questioned it right as I read "shooters in Jajuan Johnson..." Not quite.

Doesn't negate the essence of my point. 


But in a thread about what should be done now, simply reflecting upon the past isn't terribly helpful.  A different generation has different options and different expectations than you did.  (I'm not making a value judgement here...just a realistic observation.)

"The freshman that gets the most attention at Marquette is Henry Ellenson, and there is no doubt that he will have a big impact, but donít overlook the No. 93 player either in Haanif Cheatham. Cheatham has a ton of versatility and brings a high IQ and impressive skill set to Milwaukee.
Though Marquette has a lot of their key pieces back, one area where there is a major opening for minutes is on the wing, and that is where Cheatham should step right in. He has the ability to make shots, is solid off the dribble, and also is a pretty good passer.
While Cheatham isnít a tremendous athlete, he does know how to play and that allows him to be solid on both ends of the floor. At Marquette that is needed, and he should get a chance to prove himself right away.
With Ellenson likely next to him at power forward and shooters in Jajuan Johnson and Duane Wilson in the backcourt, look for Cheatham to have plenty of room to work, and make a big impact from day one. "

I don't think a politically oriented book, which will largely read by fans of the author who already support her point of view, will have any significant impact on Marquette.

We just went through something like this on our campus about a month ago.  The incident was mentioned on local talk radio, we had a couple television reporters around, and was noted on some Fox news segment.

It was a little busy around here for a couple days.  Now nothing.  People have moved on.

Congratulations....but it's not the 1970s any longer.

When I was at Marquette we drank before the game, may have had some herb to steel ourselves against the bitter cold, filled our down parkas and army field jackets with PBRs, drank while marching to the Arena, drank during the game, then went back to the Lanche to drink more.

Entertainment was the guy in the top row yelling, "Give 'em hell, Al!" during the National Anthem, world class basketball on the court, and Al McGuire being Al. We chanted vulgar things at the refs for clearly bad calls and had even more vile chants for people like Digger Phelps, Kelly Tripucka, Bill Laimbeer, Ray Meyers, and Bill Cofield.

We didn't need Jumbotrons, dancing girls, free t shirts, donuts, trivia contests, or any other meaningless distractions. And most of all, we didn't ever feel the need to sing.

We were there for three things:

1. World class basketball
2. Al McGuire
3. Sharing the Marquette Basketball experience with good friends

During time outs we talked with each other. We actually had conversations. We did not need gratuitous, insipid distractions and we sure as sh1t never thought about singing.

Marquette put a spectacular product on the court. That was all good friends needed not just for an evening but for a lifetime of memories.

 

Yeah, 90% of what you described can't be done anymore.  Hell we did the same thing in 1999 during the first Tanned Tommy season as freshmen but the students/culture have changed.  The game itself just isn't enough anymore.  Plus there is so much more down time in the game then there was back in your day, and the students have a lot of ADD going on.  Lastly as fun as being apart of the drunken student section is, it does have negative impacts on the rest of the paying crowd who have to deal with them.  We've got to create value for all paying customers to generate revenue to put a winning product on the court.
