Couldn't agree more Goose.  Don't screw around, give him an immediate raise/extension.

Sure, he's earned it.
But an extension won't keep him from leaving if he wants to go.

I was at that game in Baton Rouge and it felt like Championship Monday. Obviously, IU was loaded, but we were right there, aina?

I was in Baton Rouge too, Doc - drove over from Houston where I was living then. If you remember a guy in a red golf shirt wildly cheering on the Warriors - that was me. Wife was nice enough to pack but somehow forgot IU’s and MU’s colors.

What happened to waiting 5 years?

Edit: Just saw I made the same joke as JB. Don't whip me for it

All Shaka has proven is he can win with Wojo’s recruits……which is more than Wojo ever did.  ;D ;D

Nice call on this Mugs!

We already had 12 years to judge Shaka before he ever arrived at MU. 

Everyone seems to forget the "five year" comment was made with respect to MU's track record of hiring either promoted assistants (Crean, Wojo, O'Neill, Buzz) or low-major coaches (Deane, Dukiet).   

Shaka arrived with 12 years of head coaching experience under his belt, including six at a high major. He came to MU already a known quantity--something you couldn't say for any prior MU coach.

I think it originally started due to Chicos not wanting to jump on the Buzz bandwagon.

Only 3 years and 1 month before we can form an initial opinion on Shaka

——
I hope I’m not being too naive, but I feel like Shaka likes being at MU and there’s a good chance he’ll be with us for a long time

Agreed. He's winning, he's in his home state, coaches the way he wants and best of all, he does not have to put up with the Blue Blood BS.

I think Shaka is here for the long haul, but if he left MU in four weeks I would give him a standing ovation and wish him well. He proved it can be done at MU and that is what I have waited a long time to witness.

Probably. I think he might be here for the rest of his career but i could also see him retiring in his 50s

I would like nothing more than Shaka having so much success that this is possible.

Also the five year concept is, at best, not applicable in todays world.  At worst a bad argument.

Just curious, why would you post anything remote in nature of Shaka leaving down the road? For many on here, today is a milestone day in our fandom and I think the excitement is fantastic. Not exactly sure why you, or anyone, would chose to discuss Shaka leaving.

I could not be happier for the 1000’s of MU fans today. I have heard from countless people today and the common theme is excitement for the future, even more than the reminder of this season.

Again, post away, but I hope MU nation is enjoying a historic day for the program.

It is a message board.   He speculated.   I am sure it has at least crossed many posters minds.   I know it has crossed mine.

It has not crossed my mind for a second. As I mentioned, yesterday was an exciting day for the program and a good number of fans. It seemed to be a strange comment, in a positive thread that came from a very infrequent contributor to MU basketball discussions.

Again, I have zero concern of Shaka leaving and am enjoying the team and the season. I appreciate you pointing out it is a message board and I will keep that in mind.

Message boards are full of different ideas. And most of them get challenged.    Yes, I have pondered a Shaka departure.   Having  pondered it, I am not worried about it.

If Farley had mentioned it would you have felt it was a message board full of opinion? Pakuni has not made a direct MU basketball related post in quite some time. Farley is a troll, we get it. IMO pakuni was throwing cold water on a great day.

I have no idea if he is a Shaka or MU fan based off of his posts on basketball threads, because they do not happen often. Again, seemed like a strange time/thread to get involved in for an infrequent basketball poster.

I defend Farley's right to be wrong.   I defend my right to judge him by his posts and put him on ignore.   I defend your right to be critical of Pakuni.  I defend my right to disagree with you.

This is a silly discussion. Imo, if someone wants to have a thread or discussion on the potential of Shaka leaving, I’m all for it. I would not agree with it, but a fair talking point for some people. Again, I thought the timing was strange and it was posted in a positive thread about the job Shaka has done.

I have no problem if there are people wondering, or even concerned, if Shaka could possibly leave. As I mentioned in another post, if Shaka were to leave, I would thank him for putting hope and excitement back to a dormant program. There would be zero hard feelings from this fan.

Ramsey will bring Marquette great glory

I didn't realize how big a champion you are of free speech Tower. As if that has anything to do with Goose's point or my original thoughts beginning this thread.  Do you think the timing of Pakumi's comments were weird and absurd?  In light of what the team has accomplished thus far and how special this season and yesterday was for them, the coaches, and the fan base?  Why don't you just answer the question in lieu of some "I defend free speech" drivel?

I have been looking for some national perspective on the NCOY and while everyone on Scoop thinks Shaka should win it seems like the prevailing thoughts are Painter or Tang. I was watching the Baylor-OK State game last night and the announcers were ready to hand it to Tang on the spot. I’m just not sure I understand why. What Shaka has done with a young, unproven team that lost so much scoring is just incredible.

I'm biased obviously but I truly believe Shaka deserves it.
