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.

It's been a couple of months so we thought it'd be good to pull together a pod to make sure we don't get too rusty. Plus there has been some roster news in the past couple of weeks so we should probably talk about that. We talk about Greg Elliot first and his potential impact on the upcoming season. We then discuss Ed Morrow at length(pardon the pun), what his transfer to MU means for the roster in 2018 anf does that mean good or bad things for the Joey Hauser recruitment. We also talk about the recruits that MU is looking at for 2018 and what THAT means for the roster. We also talk about the concerns about the point guard position in 2018 given the roster make-up. After we get done wildly speculating about a whole bunch of stuff, we then move on to the really fun stuff TBT (The Basketball Tournament). We walk through the roster as we currently understand it and talk about alumni we'd love to see play on the team this summer. We've included a link below for you to get out and vote for MU's alumni team to be able to be in the tournament. As always, enjoy the pod and the off-season

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.

Well to say the Luke Fischer era at Marquette got off to a fast start would be the least earth shattering news of this week.  We jump right into the Luke story line and discuss our first impressions, what we liked, and what this might mean for this Marquette team.  Be warned, we are pretty enthusiastic for Luke's future.  We talk about the ASU game overall and then transition into a brief conversation on last weeks less than awesome transfer news.  With the transfers, that leaves 3 open scholarships.  As anonymous internet podcasters, we had to tell Wojo what he should do with those scholarships.  Lastly we talk a little bit of future for this team.  Unless something catastrophic happens, this will be the last pod until right before BE opening.  Merry Christmas to all the Marquette fans and enjoy your presents, especially Luke Fischer.

To borrow from a favorite cartoon show of ours....yeah, MU fans, that month sure sucked last month. March just plain sucked. I've seen months suck before but March was the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.  So we quickly pivot from that to the dawning Wojo era.  Side note, I can't spell words let alone Wojciechowski, so Wojo will be the nom de guerre for Scrambled Eggs.  Anyway, we talk Wojo, what we think his impact on MU will be and what are our expectations.  We walk through some of the reasons to like the hire despite Phil's and some fan's initial reluctance.  We also talk about the current players, if they stay, and some very interesting quotes that came out.  Lastly we talk incoming recruits and the new university president.  So we welcome our new basketball overlord in Coach Wojo and wish him the best of luck!

We asked you for your questions and you guys delivered...a lot of different stuff.  Good questions, interesting questions, soliloquies disguised as questions, and some I just don't know what.  So in return we delivered rambling, occasionally incoherent and definitely wandering answers to those questions.  We covered a lot of ground and definitely enjoyed it.  It's hard to detail everything we talked about so you'll just have to listen.  Assuming you guys enjoy it we will definitely need to do Scrambled Questions again.  So sit back, enjoy and remember, you asked us you have no one to blame but yourself

Luke Fischer, according to his twitter, is Marquette's newest post player which will make next season interesting.  There were two games this week, a complete dumpster fire at Creighton and a near dumpster fire at home against DePaul.  We discuss the games, if it's a good thing that Buzz has shortened up the bench, what hold Jake Thomas has on Buzz, and what Jajaun Johnson has done to not be getting minutes.  It's not all bad as Cracked Sidewalk's contributor Rob Lowe has put together stats that say the offense may improve.  We discuss if we think the stats are on to something or if Rob has last his last grip on reality.  We also spent some time talking about next year and why it's important to get some freshmen some minutes.  Wrapping up the pod is an review of the Xavier and Seton Hall games.  Giving you the bottom line, the Xavier game is extremely important but we aren't overwhelmed with optimism. Who knows, next week we might be talking about what a great week it was, lets hope.

First, Happy New Year everyone, we at Scrambled Eggs hope the new year brings you joy, happiness and a lot of Marquette wins.  This is actually going to be one of our longer efforts because we had a lot to discuss and let's face it, we wondered around more than usual.  We discuss the critical Champion Baptist - Southern game right off the bat.  Why you ask, because it's our podcast and we can....that and the hilarity of it all.  We spend a little time discussing the official word of a Duane Wilson redshirt.  Next on the docket is the Samford and New Mexico analysis and a discussion of why we really really really want Burton and Jajuan Johnson to get more minutes.  Putting our reputation on the line (does it count if we don't really have one?) we forecast the conference season, Joe is a little more pessimistic than Phil.  Lastly we discuss a bunch of random topics including Vander Blue, Deonte Burton's first of many likely posterizations and Luke Fisher to close out the last Scrambled Eggs podcast in 2013.  Once again, happy new year and we'll chat again next year.

We're back, and way faster than we thought.  Our last podcast was all about Marquette Madness and excitement for the Ahmed Hill commitment.  That exuberance was short lived when 72 hours later Jameel McKay took to twitter to say he was leaving Marquette for unknown and sure to be wildly speculated reasons.  We came up off the mat with the news of Marial Shayok's commitment, adding him to the embarrassing riches of switchables at Marquette.  But then, we got pushed right back down with the word that Duane Wilson is taking part in the annual Marquette walking boot tradition due to a stress fracture that will keep him out "multiple" weeks.  We don't know what that means either, but we're going to talk about that and everything else that happened this week.  We talk how these changes will impact the roster, starters, and minutes.  We'll also wrap up with recruiting discussions and how we see this week shape the next year.  This is the last pod before the season starts....we think....unless one of us ends up in a walking boot or something.

After a bit of a hiatus where neither of us transferred or left for the NBA, we're back with 40+ minutes of Marquette podcasting.  In this podcast episode, we talk about the first of the changing roster, who's leaving, who's staying, and who is both leaving and staying.  We also breakdown whether Vander's decision was a good one, and what impact his leaving will have on the team next season.
