Marquette Owes Al McGuire Money

MU may not be in the Final Four, but they are still the focal point of the paper of record. Today's New York Times has a nice feature on why Al McGuire walked away after 1977.

Amazingly, one of the reasons was because he could make more money at a Wisconsin sporting goods company. And Butch Lee makes the timely comparison of Al McGuire to Lt. Columbo.

The Times also has a good little piece on the composer of the legendary One Shining Moment, and wouldn't you know, it's about a girl.

In other Marquette/NBA news, ABC reported this morning that Mr. Wade's rehabbing is going well and he plans on joining the Heat this week, maybe as early as tomorrow. See, MU is still alive.

I say Florida wins it down the stretch, but I also say it's hard for me to care.

anybody see the nice piece on the 77 Warriors as a part of the pre-game shows yesterday?

i searched for a clip on youtube, but nothing's up yet.

was curious why they didn't include any Rick Majerus interview footage.
