It’s Going To Be A Long Year

Author: Dave Klinger (Editor), david.klinger@marquette.edu. How could we make the same mistake twice in a row? I’m not saying Marquette is doomed. I’m not saying the team’s issues are completely unfixable. But as of now, three games into the season, it seems as if we overestimated the Golden Eagles’ potential for the second straight season. Oh, sure, we stated all the necessary precautions. We underlined … Continue reading It’s Going To Be A Long Year

Reassessing Preseason Player Predictions

Marquette kicked off the last third of the season on Thursday with an 11-point victory over Providence. Four months ago, that seemed like quite the easy prediction.

What the hell was he doing?” All of Twitter engaged in what will be known from now on as, “The Collective Roast of … Continue reading Marquette Bounces Back from OSU, Proves Why We Shouldn’t Panic

Marquette vs. Ohio State Preview

This may not be how we initially anticipated Marquette vs. Ohio State (see: cancelled Carrier Classic, 2012), but if anything, this is better. Bradley Center. Saturday afternoon. #10 vs. #17. Really, this home-court atmosphere is going to be better than anything we could’ve possibly imagined. If you aren’t able to make the trip, be sure to catch it on Fox at noon central time. Until then, … Continue reading Marquette vs. Ohio State Preview

Marquette Madness Recap (MU Weekend Series Pt. 2)

This is part two of our “Marquette Weekend” series – for part one, click here. As previously stated, Marquette Madness was an all-around awesome night, inflicting excitement, hope and promise all around for the upcoming season. One shouldn’t try to look at the event with an inclination for analysis, as most of the scrimmage stats are misleading due to the lack of defense.
