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.

Well the Big East has been a headscratcher and we're only 2/9ths of the way through. Life got in the way of podcasting but we're back at it and no better than we've ever been. We talk about all four conference games, what they mean, why they went the way they went, and what conclusions we can draw. This leads to a debate about player performance and what player we trust the most on this Marquette team. We then transition to Henry Ellenson: Overrated, Underrated or properly rated. After that lively debate it's time to talk the very difficult week ahead for Marquette basketball with a road trip to conference leader Villanova and home game against Xavier on the docket. Finally we wrap up with a little light recruiting news. 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.

As the title indicates, we're exhausted and we think you are exhausted around MU basketball this season, but we'll get through this together on the podcast.  Obviously we have to talk about the stomach punch games and deja vu that were the Providence and St John's game.  They were very tough games, and yet more games we could have won but maybe shouldn't have been in a position to win.  We then pivot from there to the Senior Day "festivities" and our impression of such things.  Lastly, we spend a fair amount of time discussing the Big East tournament and potential match ups.  We even try to be positive and create a path for MU to get to the championship and maybe sneak into the NCAA tournament, but to say it is a stretch is being unfair to this guy.

Unfortunately, the Villanova game went exactly how we feared it would.  So after this past week, Marquette is 1-1 with no signature win on the season and very much looking from the outside of the bubble.  We break down the game for what it's worth and touch on the Georgetown game a little bit.  We then transition to what should be obvious, Marquette needs some serious luck and a conference tournament run to make the NCAA tournament.  We don't think it likely but supposedly there is a chance.  That discussion leads to another on schedule next year, and what the schedule should look like to help Marquette make this a one year downswing.  Next on the hit list is what to expect this week against Providence and St John's, clearly must win if MU has any chances of making the tourny.  Lastly, we spend time talking about each of the seniors and forecasting a dusty day in the Bradley Center for the senior events after the game.  Hasn't been the best of weeks, but no reason not to pod about it.

In the latest edition of Scrambled Eggs, we dive right into the age old question, can you have too much good Mayo?  We cover the Butler result which overshadows the dumpster fire that was the St John's loss which totally eliminated the good feeling from the Providence game which....well you get the idea.  We talk consistency or the lack thereof and how everyone should stop talking March Madness for Marquette until certain conditions are met.  We also predict the Seton Hall game.  Lastly, we spend some time discussing booing and if it's ok.  I'll give away the ending, Joe is definitely against it.  Enjoy

You watched the Villanova game and so did we.  That game was simultaneously less frustrating and more frustrating than it seemed (probably won't make more sense on the pod, but give it a go).  We breakdown the game, what went wrong, what went right, and does the result change any of our opinions.  We also dive into the long lingering brush fire on twitter/message board/interwebs/bar time that is John Dawson vs Derrick Wilson.  That discussion expands to the freshman minutes in general and Anonymous Eagle's call for more time for Dawson/Burton/JJJ.  Once we add fuel to those fires, we move on to preview Providence and St Johns, and one of us is a total negative Nancy.  The team may be down but the podcast is on the top of it's game, we even made it through without a single Seinfeld reference(we think).  Give it a listen and lets all hope for less bad days.

Well, we didn't see it coming, but MU wins a share of the regular season conference championship so we gotta talk about it.  Also talking Big East Tourney, NCAA Tourney and where MU might end up.  Give it a listen, see what happens, you might like it.
