Marquette benches their opponents...finally

We can report to you today that Marquette has decided to switch their benches so that opposing teams will now shoot into the student section in the second half of games as most schools layout their configuration. We believe this is a very good move and one that probably needed to be done years ago. The opportunity probably presented itself this year due to the re-seating points based system. If we were to guess, this would allow the Athletic Department to tell individual season ticket holders when they come in to pick their seats how the new arrangement will be laid out.

Basically, the two benches will flip flop so the opposing teams are now closer to our band and the students. The opposing teams will have to shoot their free throws in the second half against the sea of gold.

Good move Marquette!
