Scoop loses its crap over most things.  It’s not really an indicator of rational behavior.

This. If our standard for appropriate coach behavior is the way Scoopers act, then God help us all.
Have some patience, FFS.

End of the day if MU finished the season as Texas A&M did, Scoop would have been in complete and total meltdown over not being selected.  It's odd that an end of season tournament to decide the National Champion discounts and no longer factors how a team finishes the year, yet assings value to who/how they schedule during non-con at the beginning of the year. 

Scoopers whined about the end of season meltdowns under Wojo, and how we limped to the finish last year - all of which led to getting blown out in Round1 of the NCAA.  Imagine how Scoop would feel if we went on an end of season run like A&M did and you see a team like Rutgers limp in losing 4 of their last 6 and having losses against 103, 323, and 185 teams during Non-Con.

Elon,  I understand where you are coming from.  Many here would argue inclusion like Buzz but would still be mostly wrong. 

I think that it was a way over the top impassioned plea for being one of the last teams in the tournament and that’s what makes it laughable.  Especially when he or his team could have done something more about it over the rest of the 95% of the season.

Again, I like Buzz and can see the argument his way but wow he looked stupid for writing that dissertation in many peoples eyes.

While I have always found it odd that the selection committee doesn't weight conference tournaments as heavily as the rest of the season, it is something they have been consistent on for years.

I would have been upset but my wrath would have gone towards us for scheduling a charmin soft non-con and not winning more during the regular season. I also would have found Buzz' whining to be cringeworthy.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I've explained it in the past, but the "last 10 games" metric is dumb and should not be included. It doesn't matter how you finish because you cannot fairly measure that against everyone else. It is not and should not be part of the discussion. The Selection Committee gets that part right.

And how Scoop feels is irrelevant. We're biased fans. I was biased in Buzz's favor when he was here. Now that I've seen him roll out the same schtick and charade elsewhere, it gets a bit tiring. And this is the height of tiring.

Regardless, this isn't about personal opinions of Buzz, this isn't about if Rutgers deserved to be in ahead of TAMU (they didn't, but SMU should've been in ahead of both of them), and it isn't about the selection criteria. It's about Buzz being a whiner. It's about him not understanding the process or criteria of NCAA selection (probably not a good quality for a NCAA head coach).

Buzz came up short because his team wasn't good enough in conference play (8 game losing streak) to overcome his piss-poor scheduling (8 buy games) in non-conference play. And rather than own up to his responsibility for that (it is 100% his fault, he's been doing this same BS scheduling for years) he tries to pawn it off on someone else.

Compare A&M's non-con schedule to our own:

  • Texas A&M: 13 games, 5 high major, , 3 top-100 NET, 8 buy games
  • Marquette: 11 games, 6 high major, 6 top-100 NET, 4 buy games
We played more high-majors and more top teams despite playing fewer overall games. Maybe instead of 8 buy games, he should've called other high-majors, or even reached out to a Loyola-Chicago, SMU, or San Francisco, all of whom would fall all over themselves to get a neutral or home-and-home with TAMU. But Buzz doesn't schedule like that. He has always scheduled like a coward. I don't know why, but I do know that the reason his team was in position to be left out is not because of what they did do, but because of what they didn't do, both on the phones in April and on the court from November through February.

Thanks for the reality check Lenny. Do you play the role of wet blanket off scoop as well?

Without protest there is no change.  Buzz was standing up for what he believed in, for what he felt was wrong, for future change.

End of the day if MU finished the season as Texas A&M did, Scoop would have been in complete and total meltdown over not being selected.  It's odd that an end of season tournament to decide the National Champion discounts and no longer factors how a team finishes the year, yet assings value to who/how they schedule during non-con at the beginning of the year.

I know one Scooper who whined so much about how horrible Buzz was during the 2013-14 season that he received a long Scoopcation.

Not sure why you give 2 shytes about TAMU's program -- and a coach you ripped mercilessly for most of a year ... but it was Buzz's fault, and Buzz's fault alone, that TAMU didn't make the tournament last season.

Win another game or 2 and/or don't schedule like a low-major, and you make the tourney. Period. Stop the effen whining.
