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.

Scrambled Eggs is getting a little serious, figuratively and literally. First, we got a guest, and a great guest at that! Joe Chapman, former #mubb guard and current coach of #TBT Golden Eagles Alumni team, joins the podcast to talk about things like The Tournament, his experience at MU, using a platform for change, and how you build a competitive team. We then react to the interview and discuss the excitement around live US sports if only for a moment. We then turn to some serious conversations around will we have a season and what does it look like, Coach Killings' efforts with Coaches for Action, the Black Lives Matter efforts, and the impact on the team/players. We close out the podcast with DJ Carton being immediately eligible and the impact on our forecast for the season. As always, enjoy!

So we did a thing, we organized a Zoom happy hour with notable Marquette social media "personalities" and we recorded it. Big thanks to Tim Blair, Ben Snider, Sam Newberry, Alan Bykowski, and Patrick Leary for joining the chat and raising the overall quality of the podcast considerably. I'd go through all the stuff we talked about but it was all over the map and you'll just have to listen.....what else you have to do? Enjoy!

The season ended really weird and we really haven't had the chance to talk about it. We get together and first discuss the end of what was shaping up to be a disappointing season for #mubb. We then talk about the Markus Howard era, what we'll remember and what Markus' legacy will be in the coming years. That conversation leads to yet another discussion of Wojo the coach, and what options Marquette really had given the financial state of affairs given the impact Covid-19 is having of society. We also talk the departure of Stan Johnson and the return of Justin Gainey. We close out the pod with a quick examination of the recruiting trail for Wojo, the players in the transfer market and what MU needs/wants right now. Generally, we keep it light so let's hope you enjoy!

We're back, but we kind of wish we weren't given how terrible #mubb played this week. We don't really dive into the nuts and bolts of the games but instead focus on what is wrong with the team and why nothing seems to change. We talk about how unplayable Koby is right now and why. We also talk about how Wojo seems to treat each game as if this is the game everything hes been trying with finally click(it never does). We then close out with some post season talk and wonder out loud if someone will take Wojo off our hands. Enjoy!

It was an up and down week, though in the emotions of senior day and we need to spend some time talking about it. We kick the podcast off with a discussion of the game against Seton Hall especially trying to breakdown what went wrong. We also talk about the senior day festivities a little but we aren't going to spend any time right not eulogizing Howard's #mubb career just yet. We then turn to what seems to be the hot topic, Wojo. We play a game of Point-CounterPoint that gives us a framework to really work through the Wojo discussions all fans are seeming to have. We then talk the week ahead and how worried we are about finishing out the season on a mini-slump. It's a process, try to enjoy.

Things have taken a decided turn once again for your favorite college basketball heros. #mubb finds itself in the midst of a 3 game losing screen with last seasons late collapse of a 6 game losing streak hovering over it. So we have to talk about the disappointing results this week and break down what went wrong. We then discuss the sobering realization that this season may be Wojo's best shot at an NCAA win in his first seven seasons.We then discuss whether this is actually a collapse we're going through or just a tough stretch of games. Lastly we talk about the two games this week and just how desperate we've become to just beat Georgetown. Enjoy!

It feels like forever since #mubb played but we're here to talk about it and look ahead to a critical week. First, we talk about the results of the Villanova game and why while it wasn't good, it wasn't devastating either. That leads to a discussion of where the Big East stands and how MU might fit in the evolving puzzle of who's on top in the conference. We then talk about Markus Howard, #UsageGod and the #PORPAGATU stat. That ends up in a rather length Howard vs Powell discussion where we try to walk some people back from the Powell is terrible ledge. Lastly, we talk about games this week with two very critical games against Creighton and at Providence, both of whom have already beaten MU. For a light week, we have a lot to talk about. Enjoy!

The game against Butler was for National Marquette Day and boy did the team deliver. We deep dive on one of, if not the most, complete games of this season with the impressive win over nationally ranked Butler. Marquette has now won 6 of their last 7 and is starting to look like a team that can do some damage in March. We also talk about the Markus Howard campaign for NPOY and the "quiet" performance he had against Butler. We then talk about the only game coming up this next week, a road clash with a somewhat reeling Villanova team. As always, enjoy!

Hey, look at that #mubb has won two in a row and 5 out of the last the Big East no less, that's good! We first dive into the kooky Xavier game and break down what happened including the Markus injury. Then one of us goes off on a tirade before we discuss the always weird DePaul game. We then talk Big East outlook and the upcoming rematch with Butler on National Marquette Day. Finally we talk about the drama in Madison and the possibility of turning a red peg blue. Enjoy!

It's been a really weird 72 hours in #mubb and generally for basketball but we got to get into it. We start off with a discussion of Kobe Bryant's passing and its impact on basketball. We then turn to the extremely strange ending to the Butler game and the fact that Wojo had the most head scratching 8 minutes of coaching since....the Providence game. We also discuss the 2nd half performance of Markus Howard after #chairgate. Both of these things lead us to ask: does Wojo panic at the end of games and is Markus "clutch"? This discussion involves real life data, I know crazy. We then turn to the week ahead to forecast MU's chance to get a road Big East victory and the unexpected return of #JustDon'tLoseToDePaul. Enjoy!
