Press Conference Coming
« on: June 27, 2007, 04:29:36 PM »
A very reliable source has made it known that there will be a press conference for a "major announcement" about MU athletics Thursday at 3pm at the Al.

Stay tuned....

hmmm I see one of two options

1) A big home-home series is announced with a Pac-10 school
2) Crean announces the signing of a recruit

I kind of have a feeling it will be that latter and I kind of have a feeling it will be Crittle.

I don't think you can announce the signing of a recruit. Expecially not one who is still in high school and not yet signed an LOI to the school.

Along those lines though perhaps it could be an announcement of the admittance of all 4 2007 recruits? Or, someone in the AD is leaving to pursue other opportunities?

I've got to believe they'd only hold a press conference for very good, or very bad news.

Being the optimist, I'm going to say it's good news along the lines of:
  - An AD being hired
  - Marquette hiring a high-caliber coach for another sport (it is a "MU Athletics" announcement, but would they hire another coach without an AD?)
  - Official Converse/Wade announcement
  - Wade wants to return to school, and they found a loophole to get him his eligibility back and let him play on the team again  8)

So, three weeks ago when they announced that they suspended the search and would keep Cottingham as the interim they were bluffing?

I've dealt with the ineptitude at the lower levels of the department for years and simply chalked it up to turnover and student staffing. Maybe it's more then that.

Warriors...Marquette doesn't have the common sense to do what's right in that regard.

I'll bet rocky is correct. It's got to be a Wade/Converse thing or the fact that Crean has decided to become the AD.

Would they hold a press conference about the schedule? Presumably, a press conference is called because they believe the media will actually have questions other than, "What time is tipoff?"

With the announcement centering  around "MU Athletics" and not a particular sport, I would have to assume that it impacts all the sports----so a new AD is a leading possibility------or a major donation or grant to endow MU athletics!

I think it's the AD announcement and maybe the mention of something savory in the upcoming schedule.

Does the WADE brand make soccer, golf, track shoes?  I doubt it and I'm guessing it'sn not that.

If basketball related...............Could this be a well planned announcement immediately prior to the NBA Draft?  You know, once again get Marquette mentioned during the draft broadcast to get recruits, fans, etc relating Marquette and the NBA?  Maybe.

If you believe everything you read on the internet...

- The announcement isn't *that* big of a deal, and it has nothing t do with the AD position. 

That really just leaves me wondering more, and the info may be wrong.  But it's what I've heard.

My guess is it's either financial or a new AD. Perhaps they found the rest of the $$ needed for the new soccer stadium?

I am prepared to be underwhelmed. You should all probably do the same.

New AD. Maybe addition of a new sport like women's golf, Mens volleyball, rowing, or lacrosse (read also: Not Football).

My guess is it has something to do with the necesary funding for the soccer complex.  Given that Crean should not be there.
