This article is about Wojo, but it reminds us again why Chris Carrawell is probably the coolest guy to play at Duke in forever. Check out this hilarious quote about the only time he slapped the floor, or, in his words, "did that corny bullshit."

"But just one time!" Carrawell told CBSSports.com's Gary Parrish. "It was Wojo's Senior Game. We're down like 15, but we're on a comeback. Get it down to like seven. Then we score again, and it's down to five. So Wojo is over there slapping the floor, and I was like, '[Expletive] it! We gotta slap the floor! Let's do it!' So I did it -- but just that one time. And we won the game!"
Who else could give you such gold?
Okay, back to Wojo, who seems to be making a huge impression at Marquette. Check out some other comments.
- Marquette deputy athletic director Mike Broeker: "Wojo's been outstanding. It's clear he has a plan that's 15 years in the making, and he's executed flawlessly since Day 1."
- Assistant coach Mark Phelps: "His vision is unique, and he does everything at a high level. He gives value and respect to everybody even though he's so accomplished at such a young age, and, I mean, who does that? A lot of us would have an ego if we were him. But he's a real servant-leader, and he's a master-communicator with everybody from the president to a prospect in the Class of 2017. You know the it factor we all talk about? He has it."
As Parrish says, success is not guaranteed for Wojo or anyone else. But aren't these comments striking?
By the way, for those who are convinced Wojo is the heir apparent, Wojo himself says don't hold your breath: Coach K isn't nearly finished.
Let's start and finish with C-well's comments: "He's gonna be around. And I don't mean just another five years or something. I mean, he's gonna be around."
