A number of former Marquette players are currently participating in the NBA Summer League, an annual event in Vegas where first and second-round draft picks are tossed into an arena of scrubs and told to put a ball in a hoop (and are also allowed to familiarize themselves with the Vegas lifestyle after these amateurish matches conclude). Unfortunately, most of these former Golden Eagles fall … Continue reading Former MU Players Stand Out in NBA Summer League
It’s a long, long offseason. Here are the ground rules: 1. We chose the five best players at each position from the 2000s and 2010s eras, since comparing Dwyane Wade to Butch Lee and Darius Johnson-Odom to Glenn Anton Rivers and such wouldn’t be too fair. 2. Since we’re empty-handed at center and loaded at the forward and guard positions, we labeled the positions as point … Continue reading MARQUETTE DREAM TEAM CREATOR — 2000S/2010S EDITION
We’re starting a “Year In Review” series, in which we review how awesome or horrendous or spectacular or spectacularly frustrating each player’s season was. And no, we did not copy Anonymous Eagle’s “Player Reviews” series. Okay, maybe we did. WE’LL MAKE SOME CHANGES ALRIGHT!?!?

Immediately after reports had surfaced, the brand of havoc Shaka Smart established at Virginia Commonwealth University took the Twitter world by storm. For roughly an hour and fourteen minutes, the entire … Continue reading Recapping the Shaka-Smart-To-MU Twitter Dumpster Fire
Simply “pumped” is not an adequate term to describe the demeanor of Marquette fans on this glorious day. We’re uncontrollably ecstatic. Hell, I may even punch someone. I’m sure someone’s already done it, and whoever did probably had a pretty good reason in doing so. Why? BECAUSE WE PLAY CREIGHTON AT HOME TONIGHT IN THE BIGGEST GAME OF THE SEASON/CENTURY!!!!!!! Alright. Deep breaths. If you … Continue reading Creighton vs. Marquette Preview
If you follow the #mubb hashtag on Twitter, or maybe just happened to witness the 75-68 heart-breaking, self-imploding, brain-exploding loss to New Mexico, it’s more than likely you’ve got an idea of what us fans are going through at this moment. First off, it’s a fact that about 87% of Marquette fans didn’t sleep last night. And the 13% who did had recurring nightmares of … Continue reading Fixing Marquette’s Seemingly Unfixable Problems
