There was a LOT of booing last night.  The fact is the typical fan is not very happy at this point.

Look at how booing at the previous games inspired the team to a better performance last night!!!  Genius!!! Because they certainly weren't trying before the booing started..... ::)

The booing is stupid.  It only hurts the program with recruiting and retention.

Boos can affect different people differently.
Some people go so far as to give up boos completely.

I can't imagine that, but, hey, to each their own.

I was just curious as I don’t hear about it all. Maybe more of a case of Crean/Buzz just letting everyone know they were doing it.

This plea is falling on deaf ears.  The vast majority of Marquette fans, probably *at least* 95%, don’t read Scoop.  It seems as though almost no current students are on here.  So what’s the point of writing this post, other than to get up on your own moral high horse or think that you’re an important part of the narrative of MU basketball or something?  Guess what?  You’re not.  Nobody on here is.  We can talk about Karim Mane and unicorns and crapshoots and “bullshat, bullshat, bullshat” till we’re all blue in the face, and 99.9% of Marquette fans won’t know or care what we’re saying.  What’s said on here doesn’t matter and has no impact on Marquette basketball.  By making some empty plea for the students not to boo, you’re not helping Wojo land a recruit.

Would I boo Wojo at a game?  No, because I’ve never booed my team at any sporting event.  But if the guy next to me wants to boo, I’m not going to stop him or call him a moron or try to act like I’m better.  He paid for his ticket, and as long as he’s not saying or doing anything actually hateful or harmful to players or others around him, he’s free to do what he likes.

Finally, Wojo’s in year 6 with zero NCAA Tournament wins, no conference championships, and his team has only been ranked for a couple weeks in that entire span.  He wasn’t just going to get a free pass from the fan base forever and ever.  If he wins a Tournament game this year, it’ll shut a lot of people up.  And if he leaves after that tourney win, it won’t be because of the boos.  He’ll leave because it’s more money or to get back in the ACC or to be closer to where he’s originally from.  Crean and Buzz never got booed and they still left.

It doesn’t matter.

I highly doubt anything short of a literal, biblical, miracle would earn Wojo a reprieve from the people who hate him. They enjoy being pissed and having a scape goat much more than they enjoy good basketball.

The staff is trying their best to get great players to Marquette. We're succeeding at hosting a ton of 5 star prospects. Booing the coaches during the visit could directly impact their ability to be successful.

Maybe posting here won't do much or anything at all. Maybe it will. The post is harmless.

I can tell you I have no interest in being on a moral high horse nor being part of a narrative.  If so I wouldn%u2019t be posting behind a screen name - I clearly don%u2019t need the rooster to become an icon. 

My view is that some of the most agitated fans are also the most passionate fans, whether I agree with them or not.  The most passionate fans generally find a place for info and discussion, leading them to message boards.  Hence, the best place to advocate against booing is on a message board.  Scoop seems to be the board with the most traffic and the best chance of student involvement. I haven%u2019t thrown insults at anyone or even said much on my views of Wojo.  I have just given a logical rationale for not booing.  It only impacts one additional game, but I think it%u2019s important given recruiting efforts and the potential for a surprising March.

Absolutely agree.  Hopefully the other 95% can cheer as wildly as possibly for Wojo n drown it out.  My experience is the 95% are indifferent or taking a drink of beer or talking when Wojo is announced while the dumbasses are poised and ready to pounce on their “big moment”.  I know i will cheer my loudest Saturday for Wojo and then again when they do the Senior day announcements for our 3 seniors hope orhers will do the same

I've been hearing booing from the student section since the Villanova game.  I doubt anyone that would boo at a game would be on this board, or care even slightly what we think.  Unfortunately, until Wojo achieves any success beyond what is expected, he'll just be a scapegoat for those that aspire to higher levels for #MUBB.

The boos finally showing up shows the general frustration building in the fan base.  A coach college or pro making millions is not immune to boos when the performance justifies them.   

He’s mike dean with less passion on the court that would have been gone already if not for coach K’s coattails that hes been riding.
Gotta be a troll. You dont boo a team one win off being ranked and a likely 5 or 6 seed you blithering idiot. Doesnt even make sense. How can u not even support them until the year is over. What is this

There's a couple of rules about booing that one must keep in mind:

1) On senior day, you come out and show pride for the guys who made it through four years. Markus and Sacar in particular should have a special place in the program. Sacar has over-achieved this year and Markus has in many ways put us on the map of visibility. They deserve our respect and, heck, they've earned it.

2) It's OK to boo inconsistency and sloppiness. I myself have been known to yell words of discouragement at poor form (as in, ahh, c'mon Theo, just shoot the damn ball. No dribbling!" or "What the hell, run the offense and stop chucking!") But we have to keep in mind these are 17-22 year old college students and they are, after all, young college students. They're going to make mistakes.

3) Tasteful booing of our opponent is acceptable and encouraged. They are, of course, our adversaries. If they don't expect it, well, I have news..... That said, Jay Wright is a class act. Greg McDermott is a great coach, and Patrick Ewing probably will be a great one.

4) Booing officials is like buying a lottery ticket. It makes you feel good but the chances if it having any effect are so small as to be not measurable. It doesn't mean you don't do it, but you're not going to change anything. If they're incompetent without fan disapproval, then what makes you think loud fan disapproval is going to do anything other than make them more steadfast?

5) There is a special place in hell for anyone who gives aid and comfort to a Badger. I hear that special place is exceptionally warm. You boo the hell out of Badgers.

6) As much as I loathe inconsistency in here, I like Wojo and I want to see him do well. I do hope it's here and that he ultimately becomes the longest tenured and most successful Marquette coach in history.

I thought it was clever how our PA announcer introduced Markus to cheers and without taking a breath quickly introduced Wojo and then just as quickly moved on to something else. Left a very brief window for Wojo booing. There were boos (seemed to come from Section 113 from my seat) but there was significantly more applause even if it was leftover Markus applause.
