Scrambled Eggs - Marquette Basketball Two unqualified fans talking about Marquette basketball. This is a weekly podcast about all things related to Marquette basketball from the common fans’ perspective.

We're not going to spend much time talking about the last game of the non-conference season because there are so many more interesting things to talk about. First, unexpectedly, Coach Wojciechowski got a contract extension from Marquette to put him under contract through the 2021-22 season. We do a little light speculating about that and general come away ambivalent about the whole thing. We move on to much more pressing matters, the Big East season. We spend a lot of time going through Marquette's schedule, predicting results and talking about what it's going to take for Marquette to make the NCAA tournament (hint: a lot). We go in depth on the opening game against Seton Hall and what that match up looks like for Marquette. Welcome to the 2015-16 Big East season and have a Happy New Year!

It's one of our favorite times of year at the Scrambled Eggs podcast, Badger Hate Week.  Before we hit that though, we need to spend a little time talking about the cupcakes Marquette has played and what those performances mean.  We also took several questions from MUScoop.com regarding the season so far and answer them.  We spend a lot of time talking about player minute philosophy and if the team is getting better.  Once we get all of that out of the way, we immerse ourselves into Badger Hate Week.  We talk about all the reasons this game is important including why Phil is starting the hashtag #noredforowen.  We then talk about the game and what might happen including fanboy predictions.  So enjoy the podcast and reveal in Badger Hate Week.

Well, it looks like we achieved the most depressing(hopefully) podcast of the season in quick order.  Trying to find some positivity, we introduce a new podcast character, but the discussion quickly turns to Marquette basketball.  We talk about the season to date but spend a lot of time on the Iowa debacle (not hyperbole).  We go through a laundry list of issues that include 3pt shooting, coaching strategy, experience (or lack thereof), post offense, and where we go from here.  We also talk about whether any of this reflects on Marquette's future and an excellent column by Paint Touches.  Lastly we preview the Legend's Classic in New York and what we expect to see out of this team, with an emphasis on fervent hope that we don't get boat raced by LSU.  I'd say enjoy the podcast, but it's not that kind of podcast.

The 2015-2016 Marquette season is nearly upon us.  Marquette Madness was October 9th so we'll talk about that(but neither of us attended, shhh, I won't tell if you don't).  We break down what Madness is and what if anything we got from reports about the event.  The season is 4 weeks away and the full schedule is out, so knowing what we know about the team (not much) and the opponents Marquette will play (even less) we take an pseudo-educated guess at the results.  Spoiler alert: one of us is over-optimistic and the other is just crazy.  We then talk expectations, what we are excited for, and what our biggest fear is going into this season.  The podcast closes out on the fun that was had with the Marquette football sign Joe took to the opening weekend of College Gameday which set twitter/facebook/social media/interstellar communications ablaze for half a minute.  Enjoy the run up to the season, Marquette basketball is almost back in our lives!

The summer is drawing to a close so the podcast is emerging from its summer hibernation.  We come out of this slumber to discuss the successful Italian tour that the Marquette basketball team just completed.  We spend some time discussing our overdrawn conclusions from the games, especially The Engine (Traci Carter).  We do spend a moment on the sensitive subject of Nick Noskowiak but quickly return to the Italy trip.  We talk about all the things we saw and eventually transition into a discussion of the upcoming non-conference schedule.  Yes, it still bugs us but we do feel a little better after having seen the team play actual basketball.  Enjoy the last few weeks of summer and this podcast.

Hopefully this podcast finds everyone successfully recovering from their Fourth of July festivities and enjoying a solid off-season. It's been a while since we podded so we went crowd sourcing for your questions that we could spend some time answering. Before we got to the questions though, we had to take care of some Marquette news and notes. First, former Marquette basketball players are getting PAID, maybe even enough to fund a wing of the new arena. Speaking of, we talk a little news on the arena and try to calm everyone's angst over the deal. Then lastly we talked about Sam Hauser committing, which was clearly caused by us podding. So now we get to the Scrambled Questions, of which there were a lot so thanks to the fans.  We cover a little bit of everything, line-ups, should we just jump off a bridge now, Henry Ellenson - Savior or mere hero, and what does the strategy look like for both ends of the floor. Enjoy the pod, have a great summer and get ready for the season only ~90 days to the start of the season.

It's been a while since we podded so we come back to check in on the off season.  First we talk about the new commit of 2015 (that we knew of at the time, more on that later), Andrew Rowsey.  Next we discuss the status of the Bucks stadium deal, which has a significant impact on Marquette in future seasons.  We then transition to some rule discussion, I know, hot stuff.  We then talk Marquette and the NBA to close out the pod.  I told you the off season.

Editors note:  This pod was recorded 2 hours before Sam Hauser committed to Marquette.  All jokes and references to Marquette getting a commit within 24 hours of the podcast being posted were recorded prior to his commitment.....just thought you should know what geniuses you are dealing with.

The season has been a grind to say the least, but the first in the Wojo era is now over and we need to talk about.  We spend a little time talking about the Big East tournament, but not too much because there wasn't a lot new there.  We then talk relatively surprising news, the transfer of Steve Taylor Jr to parts unknown.  Since the season is over we have to talk about how this news impacts next year's team and vent a little disappointment.  Speaking of disappointment, we talk about the Big East performance in March Madness.  We try to put it in perspective for Marquette short and long term and why we should all be Musketeer fans.  Lastly, we close out with a few odds and ends like Marquette in Italy this summer.  Cleanse yourself of the season and give a listen while we are hopefully celebrating a Badger loss.

Within the span of a week Marquette has lost a recruit and gained a recruit.  Welcome to Sacar Amin, the newest Warrior in the fold!  With Sacar's announcement, we do a quick, uneducated evaluation of his talent based on media reports, short youtube clips and rampant speculation.  We also discuss the impact of this announcement on the direction Wojo takes the last 3 scholarships.  We then turn to National Marquette Day and the results against Villanova.  The game, while a losing effort, was a lot better than we expected and we saw some positive take-ways.  We talk about JjJ's transformation from scrapper to legitimate scorer as well as a bold prediction about Duane Wilson at Marquette.  We also talk injuries and whether we expect Matt Carlino back at all this season.  It's a relatively short pod but we've got a lot packed in there.  Enjoy

Another week and another couple of tough, well fought loses.  The Georgetown loss was especially tough to take given some pretty questionable calls.  We spend time talking about the officiating and the team's performance in the game.  We analyze this weeks performance in total and talk about what's good and what's bad.  We spend some time talking about JaJaun Johnson and where his game is.  We also carry on for a while about Derrick Wilson's best play as a Marquette Warrior....posterizing Paul White.  We wrap up the pod talking about the next couple of games and determine if Marquette will actually get over the hump and record a win or two.
