Yeah I'd love to have a program that's so bad the students rush the floor after a nonconference OT win over an unranked team. A program on its first 9 game win streak in nearly 30 years.

Go away.

I always get called out as a troll whenever I point to inconsistencies in arguments on the opposite side of my opinion.  It doesn't make sense.

I don't care about the students rushing or not rushing.  That has nothing to do with the fact that, this year, the basketball team is 9-0 with far more quality wins than our own.  Even though we started ahead of them in 2014.

Obviously let the year play out, but DePaul is currently putting together a better season than Marquette - fact.

**Edit:  Same amount of NCAA wins in that timeframe as well.

C'mon...they are 9-0..and haven't played a Big east game yet. Once they start playing teams that have seen them before, we will see a different DePaul team. remember, this is the same team the Coaches picked for what 8th or 9th in the Big east?? Would not surprise me in the least if they are close to .500 by the end of the year. I realize to both their fans, it feels like they have won a National Championship, but they haven't won sh*t yet. Let's also remember, they got a HUGE break in that Charlie Moore was granted a wiver or where would they be?? Texas Tech was also playing without their best player tonight. A little perspective.

I mean people want to talk about trajectory.  Maybe it's time to seriously look at their trajectory.  Winning percentages:

1.  .290
2.  .281
3.  .528
4.  1.000 (obviously won't last but let's pretend that ends somewhere around .650)

Can we really say our program has done a better job rebuilding itself than even the lowly DePaul program?

I'm more than happy to let the year play out, but if DePaul has a great year and we don't Wojo is going to start running out of all excuses (if he hasn't already).

Can we really ...

... wait to see if DePaul finally has one consecutive decent season before we proclaim them the next great team that Marquette and every other Big East program should want to emulate.

Troll.

Troll.
Is that what I did?  Nova, Seton Hall, Xavier, Butler all have fine programs better than DePaul's.  Whether our program is better than DePaul's moving forward is at the least questionable and that is a major problem.

I'm sure there's plenty of space aboard the bandwagon.
We'd hate to see you leave us, but do what you must.

FWIW, MU's win over Purdue >>>>> Any DePaul win.

I went to MU just like everybody else here, and I went to/continue to go to all the games and never say a slight word while there.  But it's obviously not worth turning into a fandom piss measuring contest.  This board is for opinions and part of what makes it stimulating is differences of opinion - which I seem to have.  So in short - I'm not going to the DePaul board any time soon.

DePaul's collection of NC wins >>>> MU's collection of NC wins (I strongly doubt we'd be 9-0 with their schedule)

Because you are inconsistent yourself.

You know the last time Marquette had consecutive seasons with a sub-.300 winning percentage?

Never. Not once in 103 seasons. It has only happened in a single season 3 times, and not since 1963-64.

I think I'll take our program going forward.

As we all are.  Why are radical Wojo supporters any less of trolls than radical Wojo deniers?  Makes no sense, the premise itself is flawed.

Good God this dude might start a new thread after every game a program that is worse than Marquette wins.

Kenpom numbers were used as proof that Xavier and Butler were better than us. No need to play out the season. What do the Kenpom numbers say about MU vs. DePaul?

They say your mind is a pretzel.

The last NCAA bid was what decade?  Marquette went last season. I thought the were to make this leap last year, but it was coming with the new arena.  Happy for them and happy for Marquette.

Oh how some only look at a decent Non-conference schedule to turncoat and not look at anything off the court or in conference.  I believe DePaul still has the Bowen ruling coming down.
