Some y'all don't care for him as a pbp guy. Fine, opinions are like ass holes. Everyone has one.
Racism? Y'all are full of chit and talkin' out yo ass. This should not have gotten any traction 'cuz Steve is not racist. Nothing could farther from the truth, hey?

The only real defenses are "he has black friends" which is a poor one, but my point was that he has made racist tweets. They are still in public, not deleted, and obvious.

Maybe he's a friend to everyone he meets, the consummate gentleman, but when he's on Twitter, more than once, he's posted racist things. Maybe it's a good guy doing dumb stuff, but he sure seems to do dumb stuff pretty often.

Homer is not someone the university should not associate with.

He is a crackpot and a high school coach would get canned for the stuff he has written.

He can easily be replaced. Time to do it!

The University has associated with him for 34 years. I trust their judgment. Grow up.

Do me a favor and read some of his tweets and then tell me that he should be the voice of Marquette Basketball!

It’s Homer that needs to grow up. My employer would can me for that type of gross social media presence.

Wade specifically invited him and insisted Homer attend.

Lots of people telling on themselves in this chat.

Tell me you know nothing about the inner workings of MU basketball without telling me you know nothing about the inner workings.

I think he’s just kind of a Twitter dummy.

But that can’t fly in today’s world at a private school.

That’s a pretty big character flaw.

Yea, I have heard a number of stories that he seems like a really good guy. He does a lot for a number of charities. However, at the end of the day, he’s a public figure. He’s posted some problematic things and hasn’t really shown any awareness of it.

I don’t blame MU or ESPN backing away from him if that’s the case. He’d be better served staying off Twitter or just limiting it to Packers tweets.

Careful using “lots of people”, some jag off will want to know how many people = lots.

I trust George Thompson (his best friend) and D Wade over any of these keyboard warriors.

’todays world at a private school’? …but this private schools support of the BLM organization is ok? That’s also a pretty big flaw, yes?

He likes limiting it to packers tweets only during actual Marquette games, to be fair.

No non alum has done more for the University and #mubb than Homer. 

George counted him as a best friend and he was extremely tight with Al. 

He’s been an incredible ambassador for the program.  We are extremely fortunate to have him.

Agree. Bravo. Sad to see Homer go.

Could this all be true...AND...the posts he's made online be juvenile, lack understanding, and border on that fine line? 

Dick Strong does some amazing things for MU...you won't see me defending his trading practices.

You don't defend his trading practices. But I also don't see you demanding that Marquette completely disassociate themselves from Mr. Strong.

I'll tell you what. Call Lovell, identify yourself by name, and demand that MU kick Strong to the curb and cut all ties with him because YOU feel that his trading practices could embarrass the University. Then get back to us and tell us how that conversation worked out.

I can speak from experience.  Cancel culture has nearly a decade of "experience" on Scoop.   8-)

He isn’t.  You’re the one that is really concerned about this and bring up pronouns, gender issues and sexual preferences continually.

Lots of people telling on themselves in this thread starting with JayBee who takes civil disagreements over mundane basketball topics to very weird places.
