Yes, best of luck to the new coach. I didn't know he was from Duke and Coach K's crew.

I'm sick to death of the "Golden Eagles" name too. I do miss the Marquette WARRIORS. The idiots who chose this lame name should be ashamed of themselves. It reeks. I think there are two other schools with the name: Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles and the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles.

Are you familiar with Wojo's playing career at Duke? Not sure you'll find a guy who accomplished more with less physical god given gifts. He's known for slapping mid court to get the defensive pressure up. He was the starting PG for the 1998 Elite 8 Blue Devils.

He was part of the programs resurgence in the mid 90's

I just hope Wojo doesn't turn out to be the college Scott Skiles, very similar players but I hope Wojo doesn't become a rah rah guy.

Default Marquette is floundering again this season

Well, Marquette looks pretty bad this season, and likely won't even make the NIT again. Pretty damn pathetic. 1977 was the last time this team won a championship, which appears more and more like a fluke. There was some success with Wade, but the team has steadily declined, with those damn Badgers taking charge in the state for bragging rights. They are 3-9 in conference play and 11-13 overall. Not sure Wojo is the answer.

I think they need to change their name back to WARRIORS, and get serious about committing to a winning program. What they're doing now is not working.
