Fair.

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Yes, if he didn't get Wade, Crean wouldn't have done very well.

And if Buzz didn't stumble on Butler and didn't convince Marquette to let in Crowder, Buzz wouldn't have done very well.

But Crean DID get Wade (and Diener and Novak and Wes/Jarel/Dom) and DID produce our only post-Al Final Four team. And Buzz DID get Butler and Crowder (and Vander and DJO and Davante) and DID produce our best post-Al multiple-season postseason stretch.

Marquette would be ecstatic if Consuegra produces Crean-like results for the women's program: recruit the best player ever, reach the Final Four, bring in numerous other outstanding recruits, generally upgrade the program in all areas.

But then again, for me and some other Scoopers, it's not always a Crean-vs-Buzz war.

Crean-vs-Buzz? Did I even mention Buzz? How does pointing out Crean’s overall conference record as A DI coach in comparison to Consuegra’s have anything to do with Buzz?
But by all means let me be the second person to congratulate you for not making this a Crean-vs-Buzz war.

Hate to interrupt the bickering with actual basketball discussion 😀 but finally got word about the last signee for 2024 - she’s following Duffy to Virginia Tech - https://x.com/raoul_000/status/1782101761982894189?s=46&t=qmHojXzONY0z7kSh4Cq1Rg

Presumably to follow Consuegra.  How much eligibility remains?

Not really.  Marquette spent two decades longing for the past and failing to upgrade its facilities and bemoaning what once was (Then again, it’s still plagued by that in some regards). Mike Deane told people to be happy with a tourney appearance here and there.  New facilities and an upgrade to the Big East happened under his watch.

That’s okay the Marquette geriatrics don’t like him.  He dared the program to think big and move forward instead of longing for 1977.  Could have left after 2003 and taken any job he wanted.

Was he a great coach?  No, I won’t argue that but dismissing his contributions to Marquette is sour grapes and if the new women’s coach can match his achievements, the program will be in great shape and fun to follow

Correct take.  If he had left under more respectful circumstances this board probably would have forgiven him long ago.

Too much pride from the guys that got to watch Al.

They have 5 players on the roster now with not much experience and no returning starters.  Yes I think it’s going to be a very tough year for them.

Charlotte has 8 players in the portal. They now have 7, as Keanna Rembert has decided to stay and play for new HC Tomekia Reed. The 6’2 Soph Forward averaged 8 & 5.

Offer extended to an 8th grader in Oostburg - https://x.com/kinsleyketty10/status/1783842887295435014?s=12

UW had previously extended an offer to her.

She has twin sophomore sisters who just committed to UWGB after the hiring of Kayla Karius there.

Now this is the kind of hard hitting insider information we’d expect for you. A transfer might go play for the coach she just played for at the coach’s new job.
