First week of the new Big East is in the books, and we've got a lot to talk about

Luke Fischer, according to his twitter, is Marquette's newest post player which will make next season interesting. There were two games this week, a complete dumpster fire at Creighton and a near dumpster fire at home against DePaul. We discuss the games, if it's a good thing that Buzz has shortened up the bench, what hold Jake Thomas has on Buzz, and what Jajaun Johnson has done to not be getting minutes. It's not all bad as Cracked Sidewalk's contributor Rob Lowe has put together stats that say the offense may improve. We discuss if we think the stats are on to something or if Rob has last his last grip on reality. We also spent some time talking about next year and why it's important to get some freshmen some minutes. Wrapping up the pod is an review of the Xavier and Seton Hall games. Giving you the bottom line, the Xavier game is extremely important but we aren't overwhelmed with optimism. Who knows, next week we might be talking about what a great week it was, lets hope.
