Penn State is in the Big Ten ,has good facilities  is close to Wojo’s home town of Baltimore and can afford to pay top salary on a long term contract .So I think this would be an attractive situation for Wojo .

I can confirm this is true.

I actually laughed out loud at this. Well played.

A wet dream that would be if wojo left, however it wouldn’t solve the issue with the MU brass. 

I’d feel much better if Lovell, or Scholl would send him packing as it would show they have some stones, and wouldn’t accept this 7 year train wreck any longer.  With the current admin in place, I’d venture to guess it will be more of the same even if wojo did leave.

When this happens, will Gregg Marshall have spent enough time reflecting on his past behavior and rehabbing  his image to be in a position to be the replacement at Marquette?
Did someone forget the teal?
I am pretty sure this is going to happen right after we change the team name back to "Warriors".

It's far from a train wreck it's a 7 year (so far) sentence to purgatory. I'm all for  hating on the guy but let's be intellectually honest, there's still too recruits coming in, there's still great wins. He just hasn't improved since the Ellanson year and seemingly will always remain right about this level.

Every year since the Ellenson year has been better than the Ellenson year. MU finished 97th in Kenpom that year. have finished between 31-53 since (32, 53, 33, 31).

Purgatory is a good way to describe it. I don't see any reason to think we'll finish worse than 60th in the future but it's hard to envision a path into the top 15 or so too.

Marquette has finished in the top 15 twice.  In 2003 they finished 15th and in 2008 they finished 14th.  If that's your goal, you aren't going to be happy with many coaches.

It's not my goal but I think that's what most here are looking for. I'd be happy with finishes between 20-40 and winning some tournament games every few years.

If they make the tournament this year to make it 4 out of 5 years, that's a good level of success for a program like MU. Just need to string a tournament run together once in awhile.

Yeah I mean it's certainly not a train wreck.  But that's not a good narrative so why not dig our head in the sand?

Also, there's literally nothing serious about this.  I mean, look at who the original poster is and you should know how seriously to take this.  I could do it with any number of programs that are struggling.

Hey guys, you think Wojo can close out the year strong enough for ISU to want to continue the Marquette West tradition?

I'm sure it's an unsubstantiated rumor, but PSU has an interim head coach now and will be looking to fill the position on a permanent basis after the season.

Yes, I'm aware.  Like I said, I could make up something about a bottom feeding power conference program and say hey, maybe this is our Wojo out.  All you need to do is look at the OP and you'll know how serious of a possibility this is.

Also, I abso-freaking-lutely love that all the tough guys saying Lovell, Scholl, the administration all blow and have no balls are the exact same people who are begging to bring Brian Wardle in.  That is the EXACT type of move that they claim to be scared of.

Sorry - You didn't mention anything about it in your original unedited post so I thought I'd interject. As I said before, I believe it to be unsubstantiated given the source.

Think so. After all, he would be following the Mike McCarthy Philosophy, and he ended up on "America's Team.

I was more pointing to the high teens/20 win season being the peak along with being a game above or below .500 in conference (Ellenson was 20 wins and 8-10 IIRC)

The article or the fact he went back 17yrs to dig up an article by one person that targeted Wojo, an article that so captured the essence of 'the locals were slapping the floor' that it got a total of 0 comments? Yeah, PSU was on FIRE for Wojo and will be now!

The "Wojo leaving for a lower tier P6 program" ship has sailed for the time being.  The sample size of mediocrity is too great for a school like Penn State to paint him as an exciting hire for their fan base.  It'll take 2-3 years of top half conference finishes and some NCAA Tournament wins before he's a commodity in the coaching carousel again.
What do you mean lower? They beat us at the Al in the NIT.
