as far as coaches sideline drinks go:

Diet Coke > Ice water

Crean was Diet Pepsi though at Marquette so Chilled H2O wins.

Classic slurper. Deflecting legitimate points with pathetic attempts at humor. Mediocrity has been accepted for far too long and I’m not sure how any proud Marquette fan from any era can accept the results from the past 5 years.

This is the year we should be back to expected levels of success. If it doesn’t happen this year, it’s time to move on.

Classic obnoxious mope. The OP specifically asked for ProWojoers, which of course didn't deter you from trying to ruin the thread.

But while I have you ...

What if the administration disagrees with you that it's time to move on after this season? What is your "or else"? You gonna become a UW-Madison Campus fan? A UWM fan? A Seton Hall fan?

If so, see ya!

I see and hear this a lot. It is really a criticism of Wojo’s system then as his system doesn’t really utilize point guards, but combo guards in a pro system. And, I have a hard time criticizing his system as it has delivered some of the best offenses in the country and in MU’s history. It may not be as traditional for your taste.

In fact, Hank was one of the great early pioneers in this offense. Both Butch and Boylan were combo guards in reality and they also subbed in Rosie. Wilson and Doc was the same thing. It was a deviation in philosophy from Al and Hank opened it up more (and his teams scored more). That said, Hank also brought in Worthen and Mandy Johnson to balance. Wojo has brought in Traci and Sy.

Fair points doc.

Nope. Yet another pathetic attempt to deflect. Are you John Dodds? - I know it’s hard for you to wrap your head around this concept, but I truly care about this team and university. I will continue to to support both through thick/thin and hope that Wojo can turn it around. He’s a solid representative of the school/program and I would love for him to build something special here.

Having said that, there’s not much evidence he’s shown that he’s capable of accomplishing anything more than what he has done so far.

OK. Have a nice evening arguing for the sake of arguing in a thread that wasn't meant for you.

Thanks for trying to ruin what, so far, was a solid thread.

The OP specifically stated what was desired....other threads don't, and if they do will abide.   Sorry, this one is totally on you and your actions.

OK, truth be told, I was a Real Chili's holdout. Made all the way until junior year without going there, but addicted after that.

How has Wojo not gone there after 5 years?

I'm now worried.

I think I can categorize the Nojos in two camps.
1.  He went to Duke
2.  He isn’t just a little bit off. Al was a little crazy. Buzz was a little crazy. Wojo is not.

That said, I don’t have overall complaints on his ability to coach as he has had good offensive teams and good defensive teams. He has switched his approach to match the team.

My biggest complaint is that he hasn’t recruited a complete team. This years or last years  team are probably the closest to complete teams. This year is balanced but not yet elite and last years struggled with chemistry at the end.

Just going to put out there that a lot of people seem to want Wojo to hire a Rob Judson type. Rob Judson has been on staff for a little over 2 years now.


Not sure why you say that. The only comments I can see on that specific issue are Tower's and mine.

Tower said: Should have brought in an experienced bench coach earlier.

I said: His first hire should have been an experienced head coach with a knack for in-game adjustments.

So we both knew, but were critiquing Wojo for not doing it sooner.

I already didn’t like the weave the last few years that our offense was good, and I certainly don’t like it any more this year

Do u guys even know why they run the weave?  If u did u prolly wouldnt dislike it so much

1. Early on, no clue how to control pace, leading to lots of blowouts at home.
2. Not splitting Howard and Rowsey minutes more when the numbers showed how much better they were with one on the bench.
3. Inability to dig out of early holes (might be getting better?)
4. Lack of motion on offense. Ran those Horns sets so much at the end of the season and allowed JH of all people to facilitate the offense. Haven’t seen it this year. Wish he would have spent the off-season watching Purdue sets.

His first hire should have been an experienced head coach with a knack for in-game adjustments. He is slowly getting better.



He had Mark Phelps on his staff. Made no difference.

He’s a good recruiter. Mediocre bench coach. Fantastic representative of the university.

If he could get better at the actual coaching I would be satisfied. But I’m not really satisfied at this point.
