Still nothing definitive on Bruce Weber leaving Kansas State to become the Head Coach at Marquette. Here’s what we reported Monday morning, and analyzed why and why not Bruce Weber to MU would make sense. Nothing’s changed since then, other than what seems like the entire Milwaukee media, at least the whole television contingent, seriously jumping the gun on Shaka Smart to MU rumors. All based off one tweet from a student television station producer. Yes, that’s actually exactly what happened. No Shaka, but Ben Howland has emerged as possibly the leading candidate. Also in the mix are Mike Hopkins and Brian Wardle. And of course Bruce Weber. Like I said before, nothing has been negotiated between the two sides. At this point we don’t even know if Weber’s camp is talking to MU. That said, it’s still entertaining to watch all the Kansas State fans already assume he’s gone and wish Bruce Weber well. And to see Marquette fans celebrate the idea of his hire. Even though that’s not even close to happening right now. It’s also amusing to see Illini fans poke some fun at all this with a college basketball message board infinite loop here. And here some of the more spirited Bruce Weber thread commenters from this post and tweeters from the interwebs. Marquette booster says: DO THIS NOW! I want Weber! PROVEN WINNER! Terri Mitchell says: This would be a sweet revenge for K-State beating us out for the WNIT championship we worked so hard for. RING OUT AHOYA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chris Farley says: Hey you kids are probably saying to yourselves: I’m gonna go out there and grab the world by the tail! and wrap it around and pull it down and put it in my pocket. Well I’m here to tell you that you’re probably going to find out, as you go out there, that you’re not going to amount to jack squat without Bruce Weber! Logan Rogerwitz says: This is what we call a “home run hire” #GOMARQUETTEEAGLES Torstein Bjornsen says: I swear I will not renew my season tickets if my Golden Eagles blow dis opportunity of a lifetime #WEBER4MARQUETTE I want to wish Coach Bruce Weber all the best, as he returns to his home town to coach Marquette! #Weber4Marquette #WeAreMarquette — Pete (@Pete_goEMAW_com) March 23, 2014 Who is the best coach in Marquette history? Who cares, because it is about to be @coachbruceweber #Weber4Marquette — Blake Koblitz (@bkoblitz) March 23, 2014   MARQUETTE, YOU ARE A DESTINATION JOB FOR BRUCE WEBER, MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN! #Weber4Marquette @muathletics @muathletics_mbb #WeAreMarquette — Pete (@Pete_goEMAW_com) March 23, 2014 If there is a god please have him/her take @coachbruceweber to Marquette. — Gooch (@Gooch_goEMAW) March 23, 2014   If Bruce Weber gets a Marquette offer and goes it will turn into the single most entertaining event the K-State twitter world has seen. — scottwildcat (@scottwildcat) March 23, 2014   Paul M.
