Anyone know where I can find a 5DollarPitcher to celebrate DePaul’s Marquette’s win and better season today.

Who cares.   Let him stew

Just another pretend MU "fan" rooting for the team to lose. Most of us choose to do the crazy thing: celebrate each victory.

Rooting for the team to lose? We snuck by ‘woeful’ DePaul on our home floor as huge favorites. Congrats on your eternally holier than thou fandom. Be sure to take a picture at the “Beat DePaul by single digits 2020” banner hanging ceremony. Had the script been flipped and DePaul made a 3 when they had the final possession you would be nowhere to be found. Good win MU - our coach still sucks until proven otherwise.

Hmmmm, how do you define mediocrity? MU is currently just outside the top 25, which puts them around the 92nd percentile.  Of course we all want MU to be a perennial top 20 team, but if only 7-8% of D1 teams are ranked higher is that really mediocrity?

We won by 4, spread was 7.

Hardly "huge" favorites.

Point taken, but I wouldn't say the entirety of college basketball is our competition. It's ~80-90 teams (P6 conferences + about 10ish mid-majors).

Be sure to take a picture at your "DePaul's Program Has Surpassed Marquette's banner."

And you might want to actually try watching college basketball for a few days to see how many very good, highly ranked teams fail to sneak past underdogs these days. The same day we got a victory you don't think matters, Nova lost at home to Creighton, Hall lost at home to X and Butler lost at home to Providence. I bet Nova, Hall and Butler fans would have been happy to have snuck past their opponents.

Any win is a good win, especially in the Big East. Open your effen eyes.

In a week you're going to be the only one bringing up the margin of victory of the DePaul win..... which you think is some indication of how much better the DePual program is, which is the team we beat.....

Only on Scoop.... do you remember the score of the UWGB victory over MU? Have you counted the times  any other coach "barely" beat teams we were favored over?  Or is this all just because of Wojo? Like other posters, admit you have no rational reason to dislike/hate him, but you do and more on.  You'll probably feel better about yourself when you do.  Fabricating insignificant arguements has to be so tiring.

The Projos are out in full force after a decidedly “i told you so” 16-6 start and a solid home in “others receiving votes”. Bet it feels great to be totally validated.

Oh wait - we still haven’t won a tournament game, won the Big East, won a Big East tourney, or ended a season ranked (besides possibly (??) last year which was wholly undeserved after our meltdown)..

Is this it?? Is this the “I told you so” endgame for the Projos? If so.... we really have accepted mediocrity. Unfortunate. Pile it on if you must, though.

I’ll see you all at the FF Sunday.

Marquette=tournament team
DePaul= Non-tournament team.
Marquette>>>>>DePaul.

And considering the angst on this board last April...

Listen - as a Sosojo I'm fine with where we are at this point in the season. A bit frustrated because we were so close to being in a really good position, but there you are.

That said, I'm completely with $5 in that we haven't accomplished anything yet. I was pretty happy with where we were as of February 23rd last year.... and despite all the "we won 20+, made the NCAA and finished 2nd in BE" projo talk, the results last year was a disaster given where we were on February 23rd.

Still lots of work to do this year and the final evaluation is made in March. We're still on track to something trending positive, but it hasn't happened yet. Let's start by getting the W Saturday.

I’m not sure anyone is saying if the season ended today it would be considered a success.

Here’s the problem. When you go out on a limb in early December and make a bold statement like you’d rather be DePaul’s program this year one of two things is going to happen. You’re either going to look like a genius or an idiot.

If you end up looking like a genius you have every right to stick out your chest and tell everyone “I told you so.” If you end up looking like an idiot you’re supposed to own it and admit you were wrong.

You don’t get to change the criteria and claim that we haven’t done anything this year. Relative to your original opinion of DePaul being better than Marquette this year we absolutely have.

Instead, by doubling down and moving the goal post you look like someone who can’t admit that you were wrong. Have some intellectual honesty and take the loss. Live to fight another day.

This is "I told you so" because you made a post saying you'd rather have the DePaul program.

Couple things:
1. Since joining Conf USA in 1995, MU has won the Conference Tournament one time. Neither Buzz nor Crean accomplished this feat.
2. MU won their regular season conference championship three times since 1994.
3.  We haven’t played in a tournament game since last year
4.  In his last 4 seasons, Buzz won a total of zero BET games. His only tournament victories. In his first 2 seasons Buzz won 4 and they were they non-bye games. Wojo has won 3 BET games.
5.  In 9 years, Crean won one tournament game outside of the final four run.

I don’t say this to diminish Buzz or Creans accomplishments but point out your standard for measuring success hasn’t been accomplished much as MU.

Listen ladies.....you are arguing unarguable BS.....What if this....What if that....

We figured the equation how "we can beat" DePaul in the second half......

Mix in some zone and stop Moore with Bailey......

We will outscore them at Wintrust.....

Not the greatest matchup.....But it is what it is.....

PS.....I think we can all agree we are not North Carolina this year........FIRE ROY!
