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.

The most hateful time of year is here and we're excited to talk about it. However, first we have to talk about the two wins Marquette got this week, on the road against Georgia and at home against a frisky Fresno State. We talk about the team's performance in both games, especially the freshman, Sam Hauser and Markus Howard. After spending time breaking down critical performances and concerns over Haanif Cheatham's slump, we jump into

#BadgerHateWeek

The discussion covers the ins and outs of Saturday's game against our hated rival, including keys to the games, player match ups, and predictions. We have a lot of fun hating on the red menace, we hope you enjoy it with us. Ring Out Ahoya!

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.

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.

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.

Nobody likes to lose, especially to a rival as filthy and despicable as the rodents from the west.  However, that's what happened Saturday with a scrappy Marquette team taking on the #2 team in the country hanging in until late in the game.  On this podcast we discuss the game, what we liked and didn't like and if anything can be taken away from a positive perspective.  One of the definite positives is that Luke Fischer is now eligible and we will see this team with someone taller than 6'7" in 9 days when they play Arizona State.  We discuss the anticipated impact Fischer will on the team both positively and negatively.  We also discuss the implications of his availability to the rest of the players on the team, who will get more or less minutes and who's performance will improve.  We then transition to the next game on the schedule, Arizona State at home after a week and a half off.  What kind of performance can we anticipate from the team.  We've got a lot of time between now and the next Marquette game, go ahead and listen a couple of times, if you don't enjoy it...we'll give you your money back.

Well, the tone of this podcast has certainly changed in the last number of hours we're too lazy to calculate, lets just call it a week.  Legitimately concerned about a 1-2 finish in the Orlando Classic, the previous podcast was filled with doom and gloom.  However after seeing, ya know, the team actually play the games, we are decidedly more upbeat.  We discuss the results of the Orlando Classic and how impressed we were by the coaching staff making changes to the plan based on previous results.  That's a slight change from the previous regime.  We then discuss the players themselves and who's impressed and what has made the biggest impact on the performance in Orlando.  Lastly, we turn to the big angry elephant in the room, the showdown with Bucky in the Bradley Center.  We kick off #badgerhateweek with our general overview of how the game is going to go, and then what has to happen in an ideal world for Marquette to get the win.  Lastly, we go on a mini-rant, because we are filled with hate, about some evil maniacs twitter idea, #sconniepact.  Sit back, listen, and let us fill you with BadgerHate

The Wisconsin loss is a tough one to swallow, nobody like to lose to a stinkin' badger.  So this podcast will be a lot of discussion about disappointment.  As an example how disappointed it is to have yet another issue with Todd Mayo.  We talk about what it means, and how short of a leash he should have from here on out.  We also talk about the game itself and whether there was anything positive.  We also talk non-conference schedule and where we think the team goes from here.  It's an interesting discussion, give it a listen and let us know what you think.
