Everything is OK in Milwaukee

Remember those questions of how Buzz Williams would do as Tom Crean's replacements? Well the early word out of Wisconsin is that everything is going fine. I could tell you but I'll let the coach speak for himself.
"Everybody makes such big deal of how seamless of a transition its been. The reason its been a seamless transition is bc of the maturity and wisdom of these four guys... They've embraced what we've done," said Williams.

Those four guys Buzz is talking about are the members of his team representing the Golden Eagles at Media Day: Wesley Matthews, Dominic James, Jerel McNeal and Dwight Burke. Matthews explained why he thinks the relationship is working out well from the players' perspective.
"I think its an adjustment in both ways. He's adjusting to us, we're adjusting to him. But at the same time we've got a common ground of wanting to win and whether that's us coming off the bus and saying 'we need to do this, we need to do that.' Alright he's going to be all about it because we're the ones that are going to be on the floor. And we have confidence in him, just knowing him as a person, his background. He's all about us. He's passionate about the game and he wants to win so he's going to give us the freedom for us to be us and win games."
It's only October but it sounds like Marquette is ready for a big season and Buzz could be the reason.
