Just a little bit more from yesterday's Big East Media Day as well as getting ready for Marquette Madness (and more)
Big East Media Day
- Even though Rosiak wasn't among the 200+ people
that were credentialed for Big East Media Day yesterday, he still managed to pop out some excellent blog entries. First, he delivered an interview with Jerel McNeal. Then, Rosiak also checked in with an interview with Buzz. As always, nice job by Rosiak. The conference website has additional information from yesterday's event as well. The initial page has Mike Tranghese's opening comments. The press conference is about ten minutes, but it's kind of worth it. Tranghese welcomes the two new coaches to the league, talks about the history of the league and growing up with ESPN, and then even gives a glimpse of what the partnership with SNY for TV will mean. There are several additional links on that page as well for pre-season honors and the coaches poll, most of which has already been covered here and elsewhere.
- Marquette Madness is two days away! Try to make it in person, and if not, check it out online. Even if you can't watch it live, the MUTV-sports folks are saying it will be archived to watch later. The MUTV-Sports blog provides some hints about their broadcast of Marquette Madness.
- In addition, the official GoMarquette.com site has unveiled more of their video. In case you forgot the context for this commercial, here's a picture of the Converse Ad. I still love that ad, and am excited to see the full video version.
- There will definitely be some recruits as well as fans at Marquette Madness. Bullseye reports that there will be some top underclass prospects from Illinois in attendance, including class of 2009 player Chris Colvin. Here's a rough list of additional recruits as well.
- MarquetteHoops.com also delivers two new interviews. The first is an interview of Jimmy Butler, and the second is an interview with Dwight Burke.
- Finally, for some fun... Since we mentioned Converse, www.marquettewillbeback.com has a counter until the start of the NCAA tournament (144 days). And since we're talking about counters, in case you were wondering how long Buzz has been on the job, the moderators at MUScoop put up a handy reference on their stats page. (199 days)
