MUScoop.com's October newsletter:
October is upon us, and that means midnight madness is just days away. Let that swirl around in your head for a minute. The long dry summer is over. We can put away our shorts and bring out our MU sweatshirts. Marquette Basketball season is within sniffing distance.
And, oh, yeah. Marquette's gonna be good this year. Depending on the pre-season ranking you look at, we're anywhere between the #10th and #15th best team going into 2007-08. With all of our starters back this year, Marquette will be running for the Big East Title.
Marquette's schedule was released last month, and it's a doozy, with 18 Big East games, and no less than 7 "must-see" games at the Bradley Center. I'll go out on a limb and say next season will break attendance records. (For records, check the wiki!)
We'd love to get your feedback - send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or post it to the suggestions board

4. Marquette Sports Wiki
As you may know, one of the best places to look for Marquette information is the Wiki, at http://wiki.muscoop.com. If you haven't visited, here are a few examples of some great information you can find on the Wiki:
- MU Basketball - Start Page
- Women's Soccer
- Mike Bargen
- Buzz Williams
- MU Club Sports
- All-Time Series Records
A wiki, of course, depends on volunteers. We need your help. Spend a few minutes and update your favorite player's page. Or, maybe you remember 1995 like it was yesterday, and can improve the season recap for that year.
If you're up for contributing an hour, 5 minutes, or even 30 seconds, head on in and add to your hearts content!
