Marquette Offseason Bits, Day 80 — 5/31/15

Author: Dave Klinger (Editor), david.klinger@marquette.edu. Seventy-eight days have passed since we published our last column.

And for the second day in a row, it’s okay to lose your mind — or go nuts, or go bonkers, or whatever other slang your native people use.
