Title: Wojo's Dirty End of Game
Post by: TheyWereCones on February 22, 2020, 07:05:20 PM
I'm just creating this post so Brew has a dedicated place to go on record over and over for several posts about how Wojo is just as dirty as LaVall Jordan because of how the Providence game ended (continuing to press and foul until the final buzzer even though the game was out of reach).  We could have injured one of the Friars after all.

I think brew was basing his off of multiple occurrences with Butler. Vs a one-off against Providence

Markus and Wojo were truly in “all of it, all the time” mode the last two minutes.  So much for MH not padding his stats in losses.  And why the hell did Wojo call a timeout with like 15 seconds to go when they were down double digits?  I guess maybe he wanted to remind himself what boos sound like so the Georgetown game won’t come as a shock.

Fxxk the NET and take the loss like a man. Win games and the NET is not an issue. It was a soft move by a soft coach. I jokingly said we should extend the game to Markus his points and then it happened. Give me a break. You play like crap for 39 minutes and then you extend the game.

Was it the game at Creighton where they were blowing us out by like 25, and then McDermott put his walk ons in for the last two minutes but we kept going hard with our scholarship guys and cut it to 9?  Again, I get we did it because NET, but also, pathetic weak sauce move.

It's basketball. It is all about getting into the NCAA tournament and that means a higher NET rating. Cooley had on the full court press for the same reason Wojo played hard to the end.

Yeah I was much more embarrassed about how they played overall than a timeout with the game out of reach.

But sure. Low point in the 103 year history of MU basketball is a random timeout in a road game mid conference season.

Wade didnt shoot outside of 15 feet because he didn't learn to. If he was a player in 2020 theres no doubt in my mind he would have a killer 3 point shot.

If Wojo leaves because a couple yahoos on Scoop want him gone and some drunken students called him a cuck and boo at the beginning of games, it’d make him the softest coach in the business.  Or, as he might say in a post game presser, “one of the softest coaches in the United States.”

Why would you not blame Wojo for leaving? How do you come up with this stuff?

If I was being booed and people were pissing on the best player to come through MU in quite some time, all while taking the program to the tournament 3 of 4 years and the best recruiting class in years coming next...I can do that elsewhere and not freeze my arse off with people waiting for Al’s ghost to walk through the door.

It would be more than just a couple of yahoos....it’s the overall nonsense.  The same one other coaches at MU have told me about when I worked there and after I left.  We are overly entitled and stuck on what happened a long time ago.  It’s a very good job, but people don’t stay because when you win it isn’t enough and people start getting that tingle down their leg....anD if you don’t win enough then you are out anyway.  As one coach told me years ago....it’s a blessing and a curse that a number of other programs don’t have.  You become a victim of any success you create.

Please.  Read any other college sports message board and you’ll find the same stuff you see on Scoop.  Slurpers, haters, and people who take the middle ground.  Our fan base is worse than some, not as bad as others. 

All professions have things they gripe about.  For instance, someone who works in advertising might moan about the ridiculous demands of a client.  Service industry folks go on and on about how rude their customers can be.  For coaches, fans are one of the many things they have to deal with, and probably often complain about to each other.  What I’m trying to say is, your conversations with those coaches about the MU fan base are very likely not unique or special.  They’re no different than a waiter complaining about a guy who sent his food back.

And if those coaches don’t like it, you know what?  There’s *tons* of other guys willing to take a shot at a big job like the one they have for a fat salary like they’re getting.  Wojo is lucky to be at Marquette.  He’s not doing us a favor by coaching here.

If Herman is to be believed, Va Tech came sniffing last year.   So, what programs in Power 5 conferences will have openings during the off-season?   I suspect he will want to stay East (without any definitive reasons).   So, ACC or SEC, plus Maryland.  Then figure out what they want and how much they are willing to spend.   It is certainly possible that one of the makes a serious run at Steve.

I said 'whatever' because you act like Wojo is the best MU could ever hope to have as a coach and these are the best results MU fans should ever hope for. You sound like the cry babies that said MU and the Big East were toast when SU, UofL, UConn, etc. left.

Stability in a program is great, but it is easy to have. Just never fire your coach. DePaul has stability. The Bengals had stability with Marvin Lewis. LA Clipper had stability with Elgin Baylor in charge from 1986-2008.

Also, please read my posts carefully when you use the term 'false statement', I said 'virtually' ... look it up, it's a material modifier of my statement.

Also, I made no reference to 'free agency', so I have no idea what you are talking about.

Free agency was related to other comments not made by you.

And no, just keeping someone around does not equal stability.

Stability is going to four straight post season tournaments with three of them the NCAAs, but we don’t like that.

Well it will be fun to watch all the arseholes dance on his grave when it happens and players opting out of their commitments.  It will be even better to watch the second coach in a row leave for a lesser job and third coach in a row leave for a worse immediate situation and pretend the fans, etc have no bearing on it.

Milwaukee and Marquette is not a destination.  I love the city and the people, but unless you are from there it is rare to dig deep roots.  As a result, I have wanted anyone that will get 10 years under their belt...hasn’t happened since Al and he tried twice to leave MU. 

In my opinion you need someone that is willing to stick it out and dig in.  Syracuse isn’t a great spot, but someone chose to stick it out.  Plenty of other examples.  Wojo has done plenty good enough not to take the shat he is taking is my point.  Be careful what you wish for....or maybe just read what Crean, Buzz and maybe soon to be Wojo say off the record why they wish to get out of dodge.  It isn’t worth it, start over and get a new honeymoon.  I think Wojo has gotten better and HIS BEST DAYS ARE AHEAD OF HIM!  And I worry we will see those best days at another school because our fan base is do provincial and detached from reality.  Hate to break it to you guys, people aren’t banging down the door to play in Milwaukee in the winter or Coach there for a long period of time.  Takes a special someone to grab and keep for a long period of time.

Personally I believe the Bucks success doesn’t help at the moment.  Of course the irony of ironies is that all the protections in place to avoid free agency Armageddon is why the Bucks can succeed....there are people here that want to make it even harder for a place like MU to succeed In the future because of their proclivity to beautiful frozen flakes...but that’s another story.

Nice, fair portrait of Buzz. Shows his weirdness and also his goodness and loyalty. But (maybe I missed something?) he didn’t say anything the least bit disparaging about the Marquette fan base - only that he had set the bar high (Big East title, 7 NCAA wins in 4 years, S16, S16, E 8 back to hack to back) and that level of success would be hard to sustain. The facts say he was prescient.

Thanks. A lot of logic here. I understand your position much better. Wojo has been good enough to allow for reasonable fans disagree on the trajectory of the program. This would be much easier if he'd go 4-26 or to a Final Four.

I'm still in Wojo's camp.

Of course he did not say anything about the fan base. I would say this, if Wojo left this job due to the fan base he would be off his rocker. He should leave to give himself another 5-6 year job security and sock the money away.

A fair inference - but he wasn’t referring to anything “Marquette specific”. You do a great job, you set a high bar. Everybody - writers, your employer, fans, etc. expects more of the same - or better. If you don’t deliver they’re dissatisfied. That’s universal. Six years later his successor has set a new, much lower, much more sustainable bar. The people in charge and the projos are OK with it. If Buzz was still here and we were a middle of the road (in the conference) program with 3 NCAA appearances and zero NCAA wins in the last 7 years I doubt his employers would be happy. And I guarantee you Chico would not be cheerleading Buzz and celebrating our “stability”.

Look, talk all you want about your “connections” and BS off the record conversations - nobody is impressed. You were here for Dean and he got fired. Crean stayed 9 years and left for a bigger job. So, nobody you were remotely connected to left because of unrealistic demands by fans. Period. Neither did Buzz. Neither has Wojo, who 6 years in has had the benefit of an incredibly patient administration and fan base. KO maybe, but in retrospect admitted it was an immature move on his part.

Lots of reasons, as I said ONE of the reasons is because our fans get stuck in the past the same as other fans at SOME other programs do.  Coaches are damned if they do and damned if they don’t.  They succeed, and then it isn’t success enough to the past.  They don’t succeed and the screams of tradition and we are entitled to a specific level.

I disagree STRONGLY that every coach at every university can say...that’s a cop out.  There are some programs without a history or the history was set by the current guy that do not do the things of fan bases that once touched gold eons  ago.   That’s the main difference. 

I’ve had the pleasure in my career to work directly for two MU head basketball coaches for 5 years and deal with four more at various levels, including being Al’s executive producer for two years on tv broadcasts.  To a man they would say how energetic and supportive the fan base is, they would also say how unrealistic SOME are for a school like MU, location, academics, etc.  Some of the stories of the insanity of some fans and the turn off the provide would make your stomach churn.  And yes, some schools are even worse.  Some coaches have thick skins, and some are less thick.  The guys that were no longer coaching said they didn’t miss the fan part at all...who can blame them.  You guys are ignoring human nature.

Your snark aside, I still get together with some of the coaches on an annual basis.  I spent time with one of the former assistants over Christmas break.  This Summer I will be with another. 

I realize you never spent a second of your life working with these people day in and day out....I realize some people got to glad hand them at a fund raiser, which is totally different.

But yes, even being on the west coast the advances in technology like airplane travel, phones, emails, texts have really made it possible to stay connected.   :o

The last minute was embarrassing. You can jerk off over computer rankings all night long, but that was a bush league move by our HC.

I'm not normally one to beat a dead horse, but I'm also not one to let a Jerry Springer metaphor get away...


First off, if there is anyone here who has never seen the Jerry Springer Show - #1 you're a damn liar - but #2, go pull up an old YouTube video and just watch the first five minutes of an episode (just long enough to see the first of many brawls).  Or in lieu, allow me to explain the plot, because it is essentially the same for every damn show:

1. Girl is sitting by herself on the stage. 
2. Girl tells some BS story to Jerry how she's in love with her long-time boyfriend, Boy A, but has been sleeping with Boy B on the side. 
3. Boy A enters stage right and Girl confesses. 
4. Before Boy A can even react to the confession, Boy B enters stage left. 
5. Boy A bum rushes Boy B, each exchange a few blows.  Stage muscle jumps up and breaks up the fight. 
6. Girl says she has another confession to make to A and B... she is engaged to Boy C, now entering stage right. 
7. Boys A and B go after Boy C and now there's a three-way that you never wanted to see rolling around on the floor.

Why is this relevant?  Because nobody ever blames the Girl.  A and B and C (and sometimes D, E, F, or all the way to triple-Q) always fight with each other... nobody ever turns to the Girl and says "to hell with you, you f@kin' slut."


Goose --- You're Boy A in this scenario, Wojo's end-of-game is Boy B, and the NCAA is your Girl.  If you were being honest with yourself (and everyone else), you would be blaming the NCAA.  But I get it... it's so much easier to blame Wojo, but he's not the one screwing everyone... if Wojo is guilty of anything, it's of being another poor sap who got duped by the slut that is the NCAA.

I'm just creating this post so Brew has a dedicated place to go on record over and over for several posts about how Wojo is just as dirty as LaVall Jordan because of how the Providence game ended (continuing to press and foul until the final buzzer even though the game was out of reach).  We could have injured one of the Friars after all.
On topic, I didn't like the end of the game, but it's different when you have a history of doing it (Jordan has done this multiple times against multiple opponents) and doing it once.

That said...I'm not sure why we were fouling. Chasing a sub-10 point deficit for NET purposes makes some sense but isn't something Wojo has done in the past. I found it interesting that Howard has now broken the Big East league play scoring record (Lawrence Moten) and Big East career scoring record (Troy Bell) in losing efforts when the games were already decided.

Cheeks is either a) trollling or b) a massive chicken little.

The ridiculous narrative that Milwaukee sucks and has little appeal to prospective coaches is absurd.

Let’s thinks about some real gem college towns:

West Lafayette, IN
Champaign, IL
Lincoln, NE
Lawrence, KS
Tallahassee, FL
East Lansing, MI

Could go on and on. MKE gets cold but it has big city amenities, without big city hassle. MKE/MU have a state of the art arena. Great restaurants. Great theater. Great festivals. And if you want a world class city?  Hop on the Amtrak and ride 90 minutes to downtown Chicago.

The notion MKE is an armpit compared to many high Major college towns is absolutely f’in absurd. Then again, consider the source.

This is very clever, and amazingly makes a lot of sense.  Good job!

You forgot to mention that one of those boys is usually not actually a boy.

Again, I love Milwaukee.  Never called it an armpit.  Again, love the city.  Sure wish people would take the time to read.  It isn’t for a lot of people long term, which is what I said.  Find someone that is willing to stick it out....not a bunch of those folks around that will do it long term. 

I hope we find one some day.
