Really well deserved. He's brought me back to being absolutely amped about Marquette basketball. Love our coach and where he's taking us.

Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Great accomplishment and well deserved.  Can’t hurt recruiting either!   More national recognition to MU as well.

With Cooley's contract getting reported as around 6M. He has to be getting an extension/raise to make him the highest paid in the BEast at least right?

Shaka adds another Coach of the Year Award! This time from the Coaches Vote.

Will he get the clean sweep with the Naismith too?  He should!

Shaka deserves NCOY.  But make no mistake about this.......we need to increase our level of violence and play to our ceiling the entire 23-24 season and especially in the 2024 NCAA tournament.  Embrace being the hunted, take no prisoners, and focus for our entire 40 game schedule.

Muggsy, I think you could've stopped after "Shaka deserves NCOY".

This will be scoffed at by the critics who say Smart is a terrible coach because he can’t win in the NCAA tournament and has been milking his Final Four appearance at VCU for the last 10 years.  ::)

Yup! And they'll totally disregard his tournament win this year because "they were a 2 seed that beat a 15" and also throw away his Final Four run because it was "lucky".

People are obsessed with hating.

Now let's get that Naismith and call it a day.
