Marquette’s Helfaer Theatre was relatively packed last night for the first of three performances of  My Name is Rachel Corrie. Audiences filtering in could here the distinct sound of music by Pat Benatar. Having grown-up in the ‘80’s, I was familiar with her music, but had no idea how many hit songs she had until I sat down roughly a half hour before the show . . . some of them I hadn’t h...

  The Marquette University campus was quite last night as my wife and I went in for the first of two shows in a row there. We were there to go to the theatre, the lobby of shich ended up being packed for opening night of the Marquette University production of The Heidi Chronicles. The Pulitzer Prize-winning drama from 1989 had drawn a fair number of students and others. The audience demograp...

The strange schedule of University theatre productions hits a particularly interesting point this coming mid-February weekend as no less than two plays with strong women in title roles make it to the stage to Marquette University. Two days after Valentine’s Day, Marquette University presents the first of three performances of a politically-charged one woman show—My Name Is Rachel Corrie  Ta...

Marquette has never sold out a weekday game.On Wednesday, February 25th, they hose #2 UConn. There are currently less than 1,000 tickets left for sale and MU Athletics want to make sure that the Huskies know what it's like for Marquette to have home-court advantage.So much so that they've made a website with a pretty cool video on it.Check it out here....

The one downside to having DirecTV is that Marquette games are often broadcast on the Time Warner Channel.However, I did get the old-time fun of listening to the game on the radio, which puts you in a total different mindset for "watching" a game.There have been those that have claimed that Marquette is a fluke because they haven't "beaten anyone," but once again, the Golden Eagles came back from ...

My assignment was to give five questions for this Marquette team as they head into the meat of their conference schedule. The questions are supposed to help determine if the Golden Eagles can make a definitive run deep into the NCAA Tournament. The thing is, there aren’t five burning questions this team needs to answer—there’s just one. Can they keep it up? Or, more specifically, will ...

I listened to Saturday night's Marquette basketball game on the radio driving home from a Badger hockey game in Madison. We'd been checking the score on the cell phone and when MU was down 13 points early on, I had little hope in the Golden Eagles' chances. Marquette was 0-4 at Providence in their years in the Big East and their lack of size has kept them from keeping teams in check. The Friars we...

You know when watching the Golden Eagles play this season that you're going to see Jerel McNeal, Wesley Matthews and Dominic James make great plays.But who are Pat Hazel and Jimmy Butler?Most of the non-conference games this season have been shown on the Time Warner Channel, so my Direct TV loving household is woefully behind on MU bball. I had no idea who these guys are, but I was pretty impresse...
