"My rule was I wouldn't recruit a kid if he had grass in front of his house.
That's not my world. My world was a cracked sidewalk." —Al McGuire

Geez, that whole week was pretty unpleasant

We're back, and way faster than we thought. Our last podcast was all about Marquette Madness and excitement for the Ahmed Hill commitment. That exuberance was short lived when 72 hours later Jameel McKay took to twitter to say he was leaving Marquette for unknown and sure to be wildly speculated reasons. We came up off the mat with the news of Marial Shayok's commitment, adding him to the embarrassing riches of switchables at Marquette. But then, we got pushed right back down with the word that Duane Wilson is taking part in the annual Marquette walking boot tradition due to a stress fracture that will keep him out "multiple" weeks. We don't know what that means either, but we're going to talk about that and everything else that happened this week. We talk how these changes will impact the roster, starters, and minutes. We'll also wrap up with recruiting discussions and how we see this week shape the next year. This is the last pod before the season starts....we think....unless one of us ends up in a walking boot or something. Download this episode (right click and save)

Podcasting the Madness

The season is nearly upon us and it's Madness time.  We talk the take aways from this year's Marquette Madness.  It's a very small sample size but the interwebs are all about rampant uneducated speculation, so we discuss who shined and who might need a little more work before the start of the season.  We also spend some time discussing the big recruiting get in Ahmed Hill and what if anything the Malik Harris news means.  We're getting prepared for the start of the season, the excitement is palpable.
