The crazy thing is...... right when things look like they're about to change, some people want the guy instituting that change gone.

He's done enough to entice a top ten recruiting class and will be returning a fairly robust group with Theo, Brendan, Koby, Janal, Greg, Dexter, and Symir.
Add Karim Mane to the group and its impossible for me to see why anyone would want to risk messing that up.

That's on top of what's looking to be an exciting finish to this season and a possible tournament bid.

Hopefully, but not sure what that has to do with UW-Madison.  They will continue to recruit system players and do well.  The number of scoopers last year who said they would fall off a cliff this year due to Happ leaving was interesting.  They haven’t been paying attention to the system they play.

I'm not saying which way is right, or which way is wrong, but playing devil's advocate...what good does a class that good do, if he is incapable of Coaching them properly/managing their egos etc?? I have always felt that Wojo needs a good enough class where he can basically just "roll the ball out and go play" and let the kids talent do their thing. This MIGHT be that class(especially if you add Mane). This class is the only reason I have a little more rope with him as of now..very little more, but more nonetheless. Let's put it this way, if they could keep this class regardless(and they could possibly depending on Coach), you know where I'd sit whether to get rid of him or not.

Good win due to the margin of victory. USC is still only 65 in Kenpom. They have two decent neutral court wins over #32 LSU and #55 TCU by a combined 4 points. Beyond that their three best wins are #97 Harvard (N), @ #101 Nevada, and #120 South Dakota State (H). In conference they are 3-1 with the 3 wins being @ #131 Washington State, @ #147 UCLA (woof), and #188 California (H). The loss was @ #40 Washington by 32.

Yup. Solid Q2 win. Maybe we should have only beat them by 1 so their Kenpom and NET would be better.

WOW.

I mean the games still have time. But there are some potential big upsets today.

Baylor down 11 early in 2nd half.
The Hall down 13 at St Johns at half.
Ohio state down 14 early in 2nd half.

Today could be one hell of a day.

Ohio State was an underdog and will be 1-5 in conference. They are not good right now.

Not surprising SHU is having a letdown but hope they pull it out.

Lol.  It was a joke as other posters said there is no reason MU should lose today and zero excuses.  Didn’t think teal was necessary.

Thank God. They are 103 in KenPom. Need them in Top 100

Not a huge upset but #11 Louisville is about to knock off #2 Duke in Cameron. Duke's last 90 seconds was about the sloppiest basketball I have seen all season....and I watched the Robert Morris game!

This may be a bit early in the season but...

Calling on brew, tamu, wades and JJJJJJJ.

Given all the losses by top 25 teams. And the parity that we are seeing this year.

Do we want the top 25 teams to keep winning so teams around us/near us are not knocking them off?

Or do we want to keep seeing this wacky upsets daily type season?

And USC just beat Stanford in OT...they were at 51. That will move them into the top 50, thereby giving MU another 1 win(for now anyway)

And yet some people don't see the big picture.   Lots of parity.   MU will be fine.   
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

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