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.

Marquette's 99th regular season campaign has drawn to a close and we are left with the question now what. We discuss the deflating Butler game, officiating, Henry's health and why that was such difficult loss from a post season standpoint. We also discuss the Georgetown result, the excitement of which feels long ago, but we do talk a little Traci Carter and how significant his improvement has been. We then talk post season, first the Big East tournament hopes and then what the NIT prospects are when the likely happens and Marquette doesn't win the whole Big East tournament. Finally, we wrap up with another pitch for the great #mubb tshirt that is being sold for a great cause, link is here:

Well, we can all breathe just a touch easier, as we now know Marquette can put together a quality game against a quality opponent in Big East play. We spend a fair amount of time on the pod this week, discussing what the impact of the Butler win is on the season, and just what it was that allowed Marquette to put on such a good showing. We walk through some of the individual performances and discuss whether they are sustainable through the rest of the season or not. We also give a shout out to the crowd who put in yeoman's work on Saturday. We then transition to "well that's nice but can we win more?" and "OK but we still can't make the tournament, right....right?". Lastly we journey down a Marquette tangent that maybe the internet masses can answer for us. This week is a big week for Marquette's post season hopes, two tough road games that will determine if they've turned the corner or if they are still just talented freshmen.

The end results of the two games against Top 10 teams were what we expected, but the means by which the results were delivered is an interesting discussion. In this weeks, podcast we break down the Villanova and Xavier games to see where this team is at and what (both positive and negative) can be learned. We spend time discussing defensive strategies and poor shooting as well if Henry's defense is a major issue.We also go on a little rant about student participation and fan support in general in this weeks edition of "crotchety old men". We then look forward to the next two weeks of supposed "get better" games as we play the two worst teams in conference and a non-con game against a cowboy hat.

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.

First podcast of the new regular season, like the game against Belmont has it's high and low points.  If you've ever been in a performance review at work, we're going to treat the Belmont game that way....the compliment sandwich.  We talk about a few good things, then focus on the bad, and talk about a few more good things.  We finish up with a brief discussion of recruiting and how we see the next week of games going.  Enjoy.

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.
