Disagree. Purely for sake of discussion, let's say that we had a H&H with UT during Shaka's 6 years there. I think MU would have gone either 1-1 or 2-0 in 18'-19' but other than that one season (or 80% of it) how would the other 10 games play out?

Edit: MU had to deal with Nova but take into account that UT faced KU, TT, and Baylor. When comparing Shaka's record to Wojo's, its disingenuous  to ignore UT's opponents.

TT has only been good for a few years not his entire tenure. But KU and Baylor are good points Oklahoma may be better example than TT tbh.

Wojo:  128-95 (.574)   Conference 59-68  (.465)
Shaka at Texas 109-86 (.559) Conf  51-56 (.477)

I will not miss Wojo and wish Shaka all the best, as his success is MU's success.   

Wojo win pct with Howard:

.626 (.542 BE)

Wojo win pct without Howard:

.500 (.462 BE)

Ah yes the classic "wojo-guy" record-reductionism. We hate context here on scoop.

There are arguments to be made on both sides.  We all saw first hand the lack of adjustments/hero-ball/constant roster turnover here, but if Shaka were the grand slam hire many seem to think, he would have had more success at UT.  I watched none of his games at UT, but I know that he had multiple future NBAers and still was only around .500 in conference.  Is the conference tougher? Yes, but he also had more talent.  We've all heard the "show me what you can do in March" argument against Wojo, and Shaka does have a FF, but he will in all likelihood go a decade without a tourney win, and that's certainly not a green flag.  I think Shaka has a higher ceiling, and I think he can have success here, but let's not pretend like there aren't holes in his resume.

What's the point in comparing Shaka's record with Wojo's record?

Now comparing Shaka's record to Porter Moser's record, there be some point to that.

For 2021-22, Moser was in the possibility set, Wojo was not.

The difference for me is in talking to staff, they’re working 15 hour days again.  There’s an energy & buzz in that building that hasn’t been felt since, well, Buzz.

Lens I love your optimism!   That’s good to hear about the energy in the building.  Hopefully Garcia and Morsell can sense it as well.

We’re “ back “ ... cuz the staff is allegedly working 15 hour days ( I
don’t believe that ) ??

Before they have played one game?  That’s ridiculous.  As said above ... if Shaka was the Savior, he would not have been tossed out by UT

It's hard to believe we are coming up on what, like the 45th anniversary of MUScoop and there still isn't a notification on the main screen that the thread title has nothing to do with what is currently being discussed on a thread.

On second thought maybe the notification should be active when the title IS what is being discussed, then there would be fewer notifications to look for.

When did Texas “toss him out”? Adding your own BS to the story?

Ok ... pushed out ?

Asked to leave ?   Happy to have him Exit ?  How would u describe it ?

Every single story / report / published article indicated they wanted him out so they could hire Beard - which they did
immediately.

It is what it is.

And it was really really good for marquette, the ended up not having to pay any buyout. All of Shaka's assistants ended up with jobs, granted all came here except one went to Oklahoma

Do you have ANY IDEA what happened to the last basketball coach "tossed out" by Texas?  I'm betting not.

"If I was a betting man, I'd put my house on it," the source said. "He's been in contact with Shaka [Smart[ for a while now, really likes what he's been presented with and ultimately just wants to see what he can do elsewhere."

if Morsell signs and is good, Lewis takes a step up, Elliott has health, this season may not necessarily be bad. Joplin can ball. A couple other new comers might excel under Shaka. Yeah, some ‘if’s’, but I’m optimistic. Should be good enough to beat Judas U.

95th right now without Dawson, and Morsell. I think Morsell will get us to about 80.   Minnesota needs alot of help.  Dawson wont get them into the NIT.
