Marquette leaked some new uniforms a couple of weeks ago. They had managed to avoid the Nike curse of uniform ridiculousness for so long, but it has finally made its way to Milwaukee. Nike first used the Aerographics in the 2008 Olympics. They say the burnout mesh allows for better ventilation and that the jersey weighs 31% less than previous models. The first schools to get Aerographics, in 2009,...

Last week Pittsburgh and Syracuse announced they were leaving the Big East for the ACC. These moves are football-baesd, but they look like they're going to have lasting effects throughout all NCAA atheletics. Because these realignments are about football - the biggest revenue producer in NCAA sports - schools like Marquette, who don't have a football team, look like they could be left out as confe...

Andy Glockner over at SI.com points out that Marquette had a tough run last season and often had to look for ways to win a game in the closing  minutes. He says they shouldn't have to do that this year. He points out the emergence of Darius Johnson-Odom, Jae Crowder, Junior Cadougan, Chris Otule and Vander Blue and says that instead of being on the bubble, Marquette should find themselves comfort...

Just came across this on twitter: From the Twitter account of Marquette Deputy Athletic Director Mike Broeker (@mikebroeker) “Crunching numbers. We’ve had 22 games decided by 2 possessions or less in the last year and a half. Staggering figure.” A quick look at this year’s and last year’s schedules shows three games already this year where they lost by five points or less and five loss...

Updated ‘Stratagem,’ zombies show off Milwaukee’s comedic flair

The details may shift as cultures evolve, but the basics of comedy have remained much the same over the march of time. Irish playwright George Farquhar’s The Beaux’ Stratagem debuted shortly before his death in 1707, and updated...

This video contains some very complimentary things about Lazar Hayward in terms of his possible NBA ability. A lot of folks missed the potential of former-Golden Eagle Wesley Matthews who made a splash with the Utah Jazz and therefore are giving an extra look to Marquette players. ...

There was something amusingly ironic about Tuesday night’s Girl Talk show at Marquette University. Maybe it was the Jesuit university students singing, “I love having sex but I’d rather get some head,” and then returning to ...

After losing four games in a row to Villanova by a total of four points, Marquette had their revenge today in the Big East tournament. The Golden Eagles were a preseason pick to finish 12th in the Big East. Now they're heading into the semi-finals of the Big East tournament. They've far surpassed expectations, beaten great teams and basically played out of their heads for months. Finally, peopl...

We went to the Marquette/Georgetown game last night and were rewarded with the Golden Eagles finally managing to pull out a close game against a ranked opponent.
