My wife and I were driving home and heard the interview.  Two words come to mind, "temporary insanity."  Both our jaws dropped during his response.

Big black mark in the wife's book.  I'll give Buzz the benefit of the doubt, but if I had come across Buzz Williams on a street corner ranting in that manner I would have crossed the street and headed in the other direction. ?-(

Maybe its just me but I'd rather have a coach who is upfront about how he feels than one who sugar coats everything that come out of his mouth.

It was a Tom Crean-esque @$$ hole move on the part of Buzz.  He needs to apologize.

If we want to hear it again, we could try and get Bill Johnson to replay it on the postgame on ESPN 540... email him at bjohnson@espnmilwaukee.com

Funny thing is, everyone gives him crap when he is overly kind to the other coaches, commenting on how great they are and how he's not as good as them... then when he actually takes the sugar coat off and shows some balls and does something like this, people get on his case.

Make up your mind.

Chances are it was a misunderstanding or maybe it was a touchy subject. No reason to get on the guy's case for it. Sheesh.

I'm not sure what this has to do with TC.  I've supported Buzz since they announced his hire, but I won't support his decision to be a prick on the radio.

Totally flew off the handle and definitely not deserved.  Buzz really needs to offer an on-air apology to Mac and claim temporary insanity.

He's 8-0 in the Big East, Top 10, maybe borderline top 5 in the nation now. He can be a prick all he wants to some news beat writer as long as he puts up wins.

We all know that's not his nature, so why get on his case for one slip up? Man, you guys are brutal. Cut the guy some slack. It's like you forum trolls want to pick and prod at something so badly you'll cling to anything

I'm not sure I can convey how insane Buzz Williams sounded during his response.  He lit up Mac for no apparent reason.  Didn't even seem like Buzz heard the question.

I'll cut him some slack because we all have bad days and act inappropriate, but it was unreal.

Why don't you go back and count the number of posts where I've said bad things about Buzz...you'll find the answer to be exactly zero prior to the end of today's game.

Saying Mac is "some news beat writer" displays a LOT of ignorance.

THANK YOU!

Finally someone with some damn brains.

We beat two top 25 teams, are 8-0 going into the easiest part of our conference schedule this next 5 game stretch here and everyone is all up in arms over one answer Buzz gave that was most likely a misunderstanding!

Talk about the win, not about a slip up post game interview. This was obviously out of character for him, cut him some slack.

Hanging on Buzz' every word and giving him a hard time for the ONE SINGLE bad thing he's ever said in an interview this season displays a LOT of ignorance as well

There is "winning," and then there is "winning with class."  

It's nice MU beat Georgetown, but the win is not a license to act insane.

Followed perhaps by a pre-game self-flaggellation at center court and three days in stocks outside the Al.

How would some of you sensitive sorts have survived a tenure of Bob Knight as head coach? Or - gasp! - a coach who got into fisticuffs with his own players.
I didn't hear it, but from the description I would suppose it wasn't one of Buzz's finer moments. Who cares?

I agree that we should be focusing on the win but I was really taken back by this comment from Buzz - perhaps not so much that he was mad but in the way that he almost called out Jimmy Mc's loyalty to Marquette.  There are plenty of clowns out there that can have their loyalty questioned, but McIlvane?  Really?

The only way that I can rationalize this is that Buzz must have misinterpreted the question due to the adrenaline, noise, etc.  I think maybe he took his comments as, "how are you keeping the guys focused when the media keeps saying that you guys haven't proven yourselves, haven't played the meat of the conference?" thing and so on.  I'm a young alum, but as for me, I wanted to ask Buzz, "do you know who the hell you're talking to here?"

I mean, McIlvane played with the band at an MU women's game.  Are you sure you wanna call him out?

I haven't heard the interview, but what some of you as described as "unreal", "insane", "surreal"...I am think he must have dropped some racial bombs or something.

Apparently some natives are getting restless.

BTW, we are undefeated in conference play.

Great Win today!

Buzz is an emotional guy.  We all know that.   Mac asks a version of this question every game.  It must get old.

Buzz will calm down and they will kiss and make up.

Quit treating him like he is Bobby Knight tossing a chair.

To be honest it was kinda surreal.  Mac did not say anything after that, and once Buzz was done with his rant, Homer kinda took control.  It was awkward to be sure.  I strongly suspect it was a misunderstanding of the question on Buzz's part and that he and Mac will discuss this off air and be fine.  In the big scheme of things, not a big deal.  But as I listened to it live, I was kinda thinking WTF is this?
