Victory Edition of Scrambled Eggs - Badgers Suck

Well, it is a very happy podcast this well, as your Marquette Warriors took down the rodent menace from the west in a tight game. We could talk about the UTEP game, but we won't because we want to jump right into reliving a great victory for Marquette. We discuss how MU pulled off the win, what we saw that concerned us, and debate the game Markus Howard had. We had to spend some time on the dumbest play we've seen in quite some time, Flopper Davidson's nut punch of Joey Hauser, and have a little fun at his expense. MU now has 10 days off and is roughly where we thought/hoped they'd be so we step back and look at how we got here and what that means for the rest of the season for Marquette. Needless to say, we're forecasting some sun days ahead going into Big East season. Hope you enjoyed the very joyous #BadgerHateWeek and please enjoy the finals break. https://scrambledeggs.podbean.com/mf/play/42y8xa/scrambledeggs_editted_120918.mp3

Marquette 74, #12 Wisconsin 69 (OT). Davison with 0 pts, but 1 DP

Marquette beat UW-madison 74-69 in OT at the Fiserv Forum today.  MU remains undefeated ALL-TIME in the building.  Marquette trailed at the half by two points and in the second half the teams traded leads ten times in the final ten minutes.  Marquette had a chance to win with seconds left, but a short jump shot by Markus Howard did not fall.  In the OT session MU never trailed.  Perhaps the key play in OT, MU was up 65-63 when Brad Davison was called for a flagrant foul by punching Joey Hauser in the manhood.  Davison fouled out with zero points, including 0-3 from the line and one punch to the privates for a stat line.  After collecting himself from the assault, Joey drilled both free throws.

In the final minute, MU missed 6 straight free throws, but Wisconsin could not capitalize.

Davison to the family jewels

Marquette has beaten Wisconsin three of the last four games.

A solid program victory and #BadgerHateWeek, it's gonna be a happy pod

It's happy pod time, as Marquette got a convincing (albeit a painful to watch) win over a quality opponent in Kansas State. We talk about the win, Marcus Howard, and just how painful that officiating was. We also spend a minute or two talking about Jamal Cain and whether his playing time is of concern. We then transition right past UTEP for the most part and on to everyone's favorite week, #BadgerHateWeek. We breakdown the ins and the outs of the game, discuss Brad Davidson's ab workout that enables him to launch himself, and what Marquette has to do to win the game. We close out with predictions and a solicitation for your best Badger rivalry jokes. Enjoy! https://scrambledeggs.podbean.com/mf/play/xy9sxu/scrambledeggs_editted_120218.mp3
