I’m not really a fan of honoring a coach who is still coaching for another team. They should wait till next year after he’s fired

Love that Dominic if getting honored. Was a big fan of his game. Hopefully he becomes more involved with MU

Thank You for sharing.
Dominic’s Valpo game winning 3 and his NC State game winning 3 were similar in that Dominic dribbled Right to Left and pulled up just Left of Top of the Key. Awesome enjoyable highlights thank you again.

Both deserve it. Still hate the way Crean left (not that he left for IU) but a FF is a big deal and he deserves the honor. Dominic was great, I think he is an all time great.

I heard Crean is taking this opportunity to pledge $1MM in matching funds for the new Valley Fields soccer complex.

Coach Crean is a big part of MU basketball (as is Dominic James).  Very thankful for their time at MU.  Like his stint at Indiana, Coach Crean left the program in a better spot than when he got there.  I do think, like all of us, age and experience has humbled him.

Like with former dating partners, unless there is abuse, there comes a time to let it go, forgive, and. move on.

I went to that ND game in 2006 with my brothers.  My oldest brother had a daughter attending ND at the time and she scored her dad and uncles some pretty decent seats, in the corner but second row, completely among older ND fans.  When he slammed down that dunk the old gent next to me said "how did that leprechaun leap that high?"  He was considerably kinder than the rest of the crowd.

Great nightlights thanks.   And Crean deserves it.    Final Fours have been hard to come by and he revy ui Ted some great players.    Still don’t like the way he left.   But as a coach he deserves it .

Crean sucks

Except for the Final four, The AL, Wade, Novak, Denier, James, Mathews, McNeil, and Hayward, and others I agree.

I was their that night sitting in a box seat serving liquor drinks that was filled up with NCSU alum.  I lit it up when we won!  Still have my ticket signed by the three amigos!  MU is back.

We likely aren’t in the Big East without Crean.

Not totally sold on this.  They were a target for years in the basketball side in case things went sideways for the league.  Crean’s success helped quite a bit, however.

The Big East added South Florida in that round of expansion, too.  Marquette made the Final 4 in 2003 and crapped out in ‘04 and ‘05. 

Not a shot at Crean.  The Big East was adding Marquette to alleviate the concerns of the basketball centric schools along with DePaul.  The other 3 additions in that round were basketball/football schools.  Even though they were better hoops schools, they brought football.

Crean made the transition easier by having Marquette prepared with better facilities and upgrading the talent.

Nobody liked the way he left, but who wouldn't leave for their dream job at the age he was when he left?????

He's all but said that it was a mistake and he wishes he'd stayed.

it seems rare these days for coaches to move to AD positions, but Crean's a guy who seems to get it in terms of what it takes to make a team great, in terms of infrastructure,  community involvement, quality, etc.  If he ever wanted to get into the business side of the sport, he'd be an appealing AD candidate.  I don't have a problem with MU's current athletics department... just sayin'
