Buzz promised me and my family so much & left after my freshman year. That’s really crazy. In my opinion he been knew since my senior year of high school he was leaving. Could’ve been kept it real and told us.

Wow.  Nice find.  Not really surprised to hear this.  Buzz was mentally checked out that whole last season he was here...he was getting pushed out by Admin.  Pilarz and Larry Williams messed with his happy.  Buzz was quirky AF but he could coach.  I loved Buzz, but Shaka should be able to replicate his success without the crazy/OCD/idiosyncratic behavior.
No doubt there are cultural differences, but sports is important for many Asians.

It’s an interesting comment from Duane, but ultimately it sounds like sour grapes. I checked out his page and it looks like he was ranting a bit about his college experience.

There’s always been sort of this made up narrative that Duane was repeatedly screwed or wronged throughout his college career and that’s why he didn’t “make it”. The brutal honest truth is that he was not good enough to play in the NBA. Furthermore, the TBT team didn’t even want him, which is another thing he complained about.

Buzz pushed both of those guys out then bailed on MU. Buzz sucks.

Yeaaaaaa, buzz bailed.... to join Virginia tech. A huge step up. I totally buy that.

Not only was Buzz run out of town, but so was Blue (seriously does anyone really buy the "I'm going pro even though I have no shot" that he tried to run us through?) And mayo.

It's no surprise the first thing Marquette did after running out Buzz, was to hire the biggest Choir boy known to man. Who never in his tender touched a juco, or ever had any personality in his coaching, interviews, or public addresses.

The board spoke, and it shouted to tear down anything to do with buzz.

Buzz bailed because he didn’t believe in the new Big East. He was a complete fake. Higgins in ridiculous looking suits.

Blue and Mayo should have been gone long before they hit the road.

Buzz wasn’t run out of town. He may have been made uncomfortable, but he would still be here if he wanted.

But also I don’t blame him for the Duane situation. That’s just college basketball. At least the future Duanes have more options.

This is sour grapes at some point he's gotta realize "if I'd had it it would've shown" and it did for one game his RS Freshman year.

Buzz wasn't run out of town.  admin not wanting to play "will he won't he leave" after a bad year isn't running him out of town and Scott & Larry were gone already. The Vander point is also pretty absurd, he's given a million interviews about it, and scoop was more connected then with reports of buzz screaming at Vander not to go. Mayo on the other hand should never have been here

Buzz had a couple of good years at Marquette followed by 5 years of not finishing higher than 5th in the ACC, and making the S16 once.  After which, he promptly left town again and headed to TAMU, and is having a great year so far.

I'll also leave this here without further comment.

It’s worth noting that he was coaching at historically bad job VA Tech.

His time there should be considered a success.

He was the 2nd most successful coach in Marquette history,  the most successful coach in Virginia Tech history and will likely be a success at Texas A+M - because he’s really good at coaching basketball.

Swaggy Duane is a sour grapes guy who never lived up to his potential.

I wouldn't say Buzz is having a great season yet. He had another of his trademarked Charmin soft non cons (best win was against #52 Notre Dame on a neutral court). He does have a niceish home win over #44 Arkansas in conference.  TAMU also lucked into a soft conference schedule. The teams they play twice are #209 Georgia, #171 Missouri, #101 Ole Miss, #44 (in KP but 93 in NET) Arkansas, and #7 LSU. They only play Kentucky, Auburn, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida and Mississippi St once and they are the 5 highest rated teams besides LSU. They'll need to win some games against LSU, Auburn, Tennessee, Bama, Kentucky or they may not have any Q1 wins for their resume by selection Sunday. They are currently 0-1 in Q1 games and 1-1 in Q2 games. They only have 6 chances left and they are all doozies

This probably says as much about MU as it does about Buzz.

Also, Buzz never went to a final four, and has a very similar winning percentage to Tom Crean... and was left with a fully stocked cabinet of top flight players.

Don't get me wrong, Buzz is a good coach, but I'd hesitate to put him on a pedestal, nor would I put him ahead of Crean.  And for the record, I don't like Tom.

Yeah, but one of the best QBs for Da Bears  is also one of the top QBs for the Packers. ;) ;D ;D ;D

TAMU beat me to the Buzz isn't having as great as year as you might think post by an hour. Ask me about their season when they start playing much more of the top 1/3 of the SEC than they have so far. Will they make the tourney with not a great seed? Probably yes. Just thought of this. There'd be some chance MU would play A & M in something like an 8-9 or 7-10 game, or even in a play-in game in Dayton.

I wouldn't even go as far to say that they will make the tourney. I could see them with 20+ wins but no tourney berth because they have 0 Q1 wins
