I only booed MU once in my life.  It was directed at Crean vs North Dakota St.

I haven’t done it since, except of course to the refs and the visiting team (mostly the Badgers).

Frankly, a confident, capable, self-assured athlete or coach not only accepts but, indeed, craves feedback from an informed, knowledgeable fan base.

Signing a contract or an LOI is akin to picking up the gauntlet.

The admiration and approval of the fan is fine but it is the raw, unvarnished disapprobation which the professional sportsman accepts as a spur to exceptionalism.

I say boo with gusto when the sour odor of deficient performance befouls the air!

Fans are dumb. Booing usually shows the knowledge gap. The team is performing well overall this season in context. The entire sport is inconsistent this year, Marquette is no different. Makes the booing even more ridiculous.

Show your disdain by not showing up. But don't confuse ignorance of the sport with some higher level of fandom

Yup, booing should be reserved for bad ref calls, bad behavior/sportsmanship and (very rarely) extremely poor effort.

I don't think I have ever seen poor effort in a college game, just bad execution.

Yup, that's why I said very rarely.  Personally, I've only booed refs and poor sportsmanship/behavior and I've been to most MU games over the decades.

I've seen poor effort in a college basketball game no doubt.  Not for an entire game, but at times.

Not sure I can remember a time I've booed any person involved with the team I consider myself a fan of.

I’m sure this thread is going to convince a bunch of 19-year-olds to change their conduct. Who cares if some bros boo? Is this something that matters? If it actually affects the decision-making of professional coaches and high-level athletes, the boo bros aren’t the problem to pay attention to.

Well, when NoJos make threads about how much they wish Marquette could trade programs with DePaul it isn't very hard to make that narrative work.

This isnt a projo argument. It's a "not being a crapty person" argument. Pull your head out of your ass.

Ah so now you're smarter, AND you have the moral high ground.

Well I tip my cap to you, sir Jake.
