So you read an article that indicated UNC was open to adding games and wrote a fan fiction about it? Pretty sure I'd trust TAMU here.
No fiction at all. Bill Scholl has been saying publicly ,and privately,  for several years that he wants to get a series with UNC. Scholl is close friends with Bubba Cunningham , because they worked together at ND Sucks. 

In the past Bubba has told Scholl,  Roy has higher priorities than to schedule us. This has been publicly and privately stated.  Now Roy has a priority to have a home game, and we have a priority to fill a spot in our schedule so the suns and moons lined up.

So you are reiterating that this is based on old reports and a random article and no actual knowledge? Okay.

And Roy has scheduled an opponent he feels will not deliver his team a loss.

No it is. He said UNC reached out to Marquette.  I said Marquette reached out to UNC.

Both have been publically stating for awhile that they have been looking for a game. Marquette has been trying to fill this since before the Saint John's game got moved up

Without Lewis, I do not see how MU can win this one.

Oh, I agree.  High probability of a loss with or without Lewis.  MU would have to play one of their best games.

I just hope that we do as well as we did last time we played UNC.

Oh wait ...

That was a 946-3 loss for our Buzz-coached group -- a team that included one future NBA All-Star, another guy who would become a fine NBA player, and 3 others who would spend time on NBA rosters.

Wait ... I think the Heels just scored on us again.

I wish I could find Williams' post game interview. His ridiculous explanation something about how "if you leave out 8 minutes of the game we actually won" is forever engrained in my head as the most idiotic excuse I've ever heard.

Next time we play Murray State, I’ll be on the lookout for a similar post from you re: Wojo.

Scholl should tell Megan Duffy to pack her bags for Chapel Hill and instruct her to sit right next to Wojo. When he gets his deer in the headlights look (again!), take over.

Yeah, its looking pretty grim. I had my hopes up that Lewis would be playing. Never say never but this is very likely not going to end well. I'm still hoping, or maybe I should say dreaming. Would be so happy to eat crow after an MU upset.

That was one of the worst game plans ever. Buzz did not want UNC fast breaking on our missed threes, so he told our players not to shoot from the outside. We kept trying to get the ball inside to Otule, who ended up with zero points for the game. UNC turned our turnovers on passes to Otule into fast break points. I can understand Buzz being worried about UNC fast breaking on missed threes, but he missed the obvious point which was the only chance we had to win the game was to make threes. You cannot make threes, if you do not shoot them.

MU was 2-16 from three in that game with Frozena being one of the makes.

I think that game made Henson a lot of money. Way to go Bucks.

That may be the only S16 in MU history where we were a true Cinderella/ didn’t deserve to be there.  Every other year we’ve been favored to advance that far or at least in the convo (6 seed in ‘94 for example).

While we were in the Sweet Sixteen convo in 1977, we were underdogs right from the opening round game against Cincinnati. They beat MU in the regular season, and then we stumbled into the dance.

If memory serves, we were underdogs in every game except UNC Charlotte.

In ‘77 we finished the regular season 7th in the AP Poll and 14th in the UPI.

Yes, but despite the rankings, we were firmly on the bubble. In fact, there was speculation that our huge first half at Michigan got us in. And even once we got in, many expected MU to be one and done.

BW (Before Wojo) it was embarrassing to be a Marquette fan. Nothing worse than getting pounded after reaching the FF, E8 or S16. Now we regularly 965-1 but it’s OK. Wojo’s done for MU basketball what I thought to be impossible: almost nobody knows and even fewer people care. Banner worthy, a’ina?

We were #2 in the nation when the season started. We were loaded. The distraction of Al’s retirement hung over that team and it underachieved. We were on the bubble when we went on the road for 5 games to finish the season. After we won the first 4 we were 20-6 and likely in.  After a solid first half at #2 Michigan (I think we were up 5 or 6 at the break) the announcement came.

I’m sure “many” expected us to be one and done, but many more didn’t. We were the clear betting favorite in all of our tournament games except the final vs UNC.

Nope. Wojo's gotta go.
