4 out of 7 seasons he had a losing record in conference and overall I believe was under 500 against top 100 teams.

I wasn’t around during Dukiet so I respect your first hand opinion of both tenures, but it  was a very poor stretch of Marquette basketball especially given the resources poured into the program now vs. then.

You should consider yourself lucky to not be around under the Dukiet era. It was awful.

Gosh, I'm amazed at all the vitriol about a "what's he doing now" article on Coach Wojo.

It's not a Marquette disparaging article. It's really  not.

It's not making Coach Wojo out to be a basketball genius. He's not.

Were there factual inaccuracies -- of course. Are they worth the kind of viciousness that AE went after Seth Davis over -- good lord no.

We wanted Coach Wojo to be the second coming of Al! Or at least a Coach K clone. He was neither and was released from his duties for not even being Kevin O'Neill or Tommy Crean.

Get a grip! I know it's the off-season, but really. Get a hobby!

For me, it isn’t necessarily a Wojo or Marquette thing.  It’s a Seth Davis thing.  It’s sloppy and quite frankly, unecessary.

I don't remember what Wire author it was but one of their male opinion authors wrote a pretty scathing article on Wojo before Zoe's.

Not sure what gender has to do with this. IIRC, Zoe was the Sports Editor of Marquette Wire at the time.

It has nothing to do with anything. His gender is the only other fact I can remember about the author that I'm referring to.

I haven't read the article, but have seen most of it. The factual errors are apparent and reflect poor work ethic.

I think we maybe looking at Seth Davis like he is a journalist. He is not. His education is not in journalism, he is mostly a tv personality. I would not read a Seth Davis work and expect journalistic integrity or competency. Just like I would not turn on FOX or CNN for factual reporting. Their all just entertainment productions.

I agree with others here, too much is being made of a Seth Davis puff piece.

Well, if this thread and the AE article doesn’t cement our reputation as an insecure fan base always claiming to be the victim, I don’t know what would. Sheesh.

Such a strange reaction from many about a fluff piece by some fluff writer who writes fluff articles to keep positive the connections he has in the basketball world so he can have his “insider scoop” reputation. This wasn’t a 60 Minutes investigative piece for crying out loud.

It’s funny how our preconceived biases affect how we view things. I did not take away from the Carrawell comment a blaming if the student athletes for their effort. But I can see how someone might see it that way. To the contrary, what I took away was an indictment of Wojo; that he was wound too tight. Especially the reference to how Wojo’s apparent lack of motivational tools other than saying “work harder, work harder, work harder,” could wear on the players mentally.

I guess we each see and take away what we want to see and take away. 

Either way, the AE take and those similar takes in this thread do seem a strange hill to die on, and frankly seems more and more like the cries of a jilted lover.

Can someone with some video-skills remix the "It's Corn Kid" with "It's Scoop"

spending much of the year near Tucson, I thought FOX reporting on the illegal immigration disaster, sex trafficking, human trafficking, fentanyl smuggling death & destruction along both the AZ & TX borders was legit. Entertainment production? Thx for setting me straight.  We are Marquette!
