I always assume I am muted by most. Basically, Scoop for me is the assumption that I am shouting into the void. It's pretty cathartic, to be honest.

I know the feeling, but as you said, it's pretty cathartic.

If you want to be noticed by at least one Scooper, that's easy. Go on a political rant and Rocky will stop by to say hello. Either that or get into a pissing contest with someone. Everybody loves those!

Medved may be the best in the tier 3 group. That being said, no one in their right mind would leave Fort Collins for Milwaukee.

They're sort of incomparable.  One is 166k people in the mountains, the other is Milwaukee.

Rest assured, no one is running towards Colorado State for a coaching job over Marquette.

I agree that they are incomparable, Fort Collins is a fantastic. Also not sure that the ceiling at MU is that much greater than CSU.

I wonder how CSU’s deputy AD Cottingham would opine on that.

Good question. All we can truly ascertain is that his quality of life on the front range is much higher than it was southeast Wisconsin.

I try to be as realistic as I can about MU’s standing in the college basketball landscape. I have a hard time thinking CSU’s ceiling is in the realm of MU’s. Their last Sweet 16 was 1969.

This is so, so very silly.

Marquette is a much, much better basketball program than CSU's. They average less than half Marquette's crowd and really haven't accomplished anything significant on the court.

And yes, the average college basketball coach would pick Marquette and Milwaukee over CSU 9 times out of 10.

The legendary Stew Morrill thought Utah State had a higher ceiling than CSU.
When Utah State was in the Big West.

On the most recent Eye on College Basketball podcast, Matt Norlander made it clear he considers Marquette a top-20 job.
When asked how he felt about Marquette being picked to finish ninth in the Big East, Tyler Kolek only had two words:

"F**k 'em."

Not really. He mentioned it when he was trying to guess what job Parrish would have in his top 15 that Norlander did not, and then said, “not a top 15 job. Good job though.” Then he listed at least 5 others he was considering with the answer.

Edit: The exact quote was, "It's not top 15, but Marquette's a sneaky good job."  Then he says Ohio State is his first guess, then says he was debating between UCONN, Arkansas, Ohio State, Florida, Marquette, and says Maryland is top 20 and can see Oregon as top 15.

  This is just an opinion and one that not everyone would agree with.  I lived in Boulder, CO for a couple of years and enjoyed it very much, but missed the Midwest and Milwaukee and moved back and am very happy with my choice.  And Boulder is a much nicer city than Ft. Collins, or at least that is my opinion. 

Also, as has been mentioned, the Marquette job is a much better job than CSU and that is more than just opinion, it is pretty factual.

Why are we comparing CSU to MU basketball?  Seems pretty unnatural carnal knowledgeing dumb to me.
