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...

Up by 14 points with under 14 minutes left to play, the Badgers decided to stop playing defense and ended up losing the game in OT. As if it weren't bad enough to blow the kind of lead that came from absolutely dominating the opposing team after you'd started the game down 10-2, the Badgers did it in the most lackluster, pathetic fashion. Minnesota crept back in, little-by-little, so that it was a...

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...

Today was my one and only down-time day to hang out and watch football games from start to finish and the games were really disappointing. Who would have though that the VA Tech/Cincinnati Orange Bowl would be the best game of the day? Too bad that by the time this game was on, I was burned out on football. The Big Ten is not showing well, notching just one win so far (thanks Iowa!) ESPN is scroll...

I'm way late, but the UW men's team beat the UW-Green Bay Phoenix early in the week. Senior Joe Krabbenhoft led the Badgers with 15 points - a career high. He also had five rebounds, a block and a steal. Full story here.Marquette met Tennessee in the Big East/SEC matchup/showdown/tournament/whatever they call it.  Despite losing the close game and giving a big game to UT's Chism, the Golden Eagle...

He started 45 straight games before being injured late in the season. The Badgers' b...

The Fairly Detached Observers

Three weeks ago, the Green Bay Packers had just trampled the hated Chicago Bears and were tied for the division lead. Now, after a 24-21 loss to the lowly Houston Texans at frigid Lambeau Field, the Packers are 5-8 and all but eliminated from the playoff race. With one-half of the Observers passionately committed...

I didn't get to watch the game since I was at the hockey game in Madison. We listened to the second half in the car. UW led most of the game, though only by a few points at a time. Marquette managed to keep it close and Jerel McNeal was the biggest factor in this game. Sitting just one minute of the 40 played, McNeal was 10-18 with 26 points and seven rebounds. Nineteen of those points came af...
