My point in earlier post is maybe the students  have thrown in the towel on Wojo. I was shocked to see X fans camping out for the nova game and was pointed that out for a comparison. We were ranked and playing good teams and the kids did not come out and X sucks and the kids did for them. Just seems to me there be something going on with our students in regards to the program.

The “Fire Wojo” stuff seems to be led by Barstool Marquette and I’ll leave it at that. There were NO boos for the Creighton game.

Sometimes I wonder what goes through someone’s mind when they decide to label the student body of their alma mater as “entitled brats” because they don’t go to a basketball game.

Thanks for explaining further. If accurate, I'd definitely prefer their fans to ours.

They certainly could be, but after seeing how fired up PC fans were today for their bad early losses, wrong side of the bubble team, I'm very disappointed in MU fans not showing up this past week to see two ranked teams play.   I mean, MUs "current state of the program" is better than PC ("currently") and you see how bad fans here act.  I'd prefer fans that support a good team, instead of constantly bitching that the team isn't as good as they think it should be.

Mirrors scoop, eh?

Xavier's non-student fans are also into it and contribute to a great atmosphere at Cintas. I know everyone hates on Dayton fans, and I get it, but their crowd (students and non) totally get into games. Not just this year when they have an outstanding team. It's always that way.

I love MU hoops and Fiserv, but our crowds outside of the student section are largely just spectators passively watching rather than getting into it. I constantly find myself standing and then crouching or sitting back down at big moments in games so I don't block someone's view and very few get up. Our fans generally show up in great numbers and fill seats, but there seems to be an underlying frustration and I'll jump in when you prove it to me attitude rather than a ride or die support my team each game while in the thick of the fight. Currently, we've got a decent shot to go 10-8 or possibly 11-7 in conference and have a decent conf tourney seed. I would hope people help push the team toward that rather than pack it in or wait and see because we've lost 3 in a row and aren't where we want to be. Whether it is entitlement or just pent up frustration, that is where our fan base frustrates me at times.

Nothing good comes from anything affiliated with Barstool.

The student section consists of those that Scoop elitists want.  To many students with no MU connection until they got on campus.

What’s wrong with that? I had no MU connection and went to games all seven  semesters I was there, all during the Deane years.

Only wanting MU legacy kids on campus sounds pretty damn elitist.

I'm far from a legacy kid.  I became a Warrior fan because of how good MU was in the 70's.  My parents didn't contribute a dime to my college education.  I was acccepted to UW. My Dad thought I was nuts for going to Marquette.

You are to be commended.  What attracted you to MU?

Legacy doesn’t mean coming from money. Anyone with a familial connection to MU is categorized as a “legacy” by admissions. That’s what I’m referring to.

Not having a previous connection does not prevent one from becoming a big fan once enrolled. You can have school pride in many facets of the school for whatever reason one chose to attend.

A bunch of the students that do go say the same things about the entitled brats.

Why does that matter.  I came from 2000 miles away and was the first student to buy tickets two years in a row...MU Tribune photo to prove it as I lined up around 4:00am.

Xavier’s arena is on campus.  Providence home crowd on national TV playing a ranked team with ncaa hopes on the line...they did what I would expect them to.  They are hungry and not entitled like so many of our fans are.

Have gone to a few big Bucks games this year (Bucks/76ers for example) and the building just does not get LOUD like it did for peak BC games. Don't get me wrong, when everyone was into it you could hear it, but they won't be pulling out any "Decibel Meters" or anything like that. And all the Bucks games are sellouts.

Unsurprising then that the usual 14-15k at a Marquette game don't exactly create an intimidating atmosphere.

Is part of it the sound being directed more towards the court? The BC was so cavernous, the sound went up. I wonder if it’s louder on the court than the BC. This is just a unscientific speculation from a lifetime upper bowler.

Just goes to show how people can perceive things differently. I was also at the DePaul game this year, didn't think it was nearly as loud as when Mike Kinsella sunk his second 3-pointer on Senior Day against Pitt in 2007. That's the loudest I've heard a stadium, followed by Bucks/76ers in the Conference Finals in 2001.

Both were very loud.

Smh
A depaul game versus a evening college game day game versus a ranked Pitt?!

I literally cannot think of a worse comparison

I was unware there was a barstool marquette. This also makes sense now, given that barstool is basically the worst parts of sports yelling radio housed in one neat package.

"Barstool Marquette" would simply be a MU student who acts as a "viceroy" in operating a social media account under that name and making sure the Barstool brand has a presence there. Corporate Barstool Sports is too busy making ridiculous amounts of money to be concerned with who the coach is at Marquette. That is a student pushing the fire Wojo nonsense, granted a student with a bigger platform than most because anything related to the Barstool brand is huge at just about every college and will have plenty of followers.

Just looked at that barstool account on Twitter. It might be the worst fan social media thing ever to be associated with Marquette

I have sat next to the student sections for 15 years and have never seen it, especially in a conference game with a couple of minutes to go down only two possessions.  Which games?
