A weekend full of updates

Just in time for your Monday time-kill at the office.......

First, a look at recruiting. 2009 Chicago point guard Chris Colvin will take his official visit to Marquette this weekend. Colvin, a senior at Whitney Young, is also considering USC, Iowa State and Providence. Per the Bullseye Brothers each of these programs stands an equal chance of landing him. Colvin will be on campus for Marquette Madness which is scheduled for 6pm on Saturday, October 25 in the Al McGuire Center.

There is a brief blurb about the start of practice at gomarquette.com. Not only that, but MU is rolling out podcasts at a breathtaking rate these days. The previous link has podcasts with Lewis Orr, Scott Monarch, and Robert Frozena. Plus, Dominic James and Jimmy Butler recap the first weekend of practice. (Again, all of the links open up mp3's directly). There's plenty more in this informative series -- here's the landing page.

Over the weekend Bob Wolfley of the Journal-Sentinel filed this report which included updates from MU -- mostly on player reactions to the new coach.

BIG EAST media day will be held this Wednesday in NYC. Ahead of the curve, Adam Zagoria picks MU for an underwhelming 7th in the Big East -- which I suppose speaks to several factors, namely coaching turnover, a much-improved league, and MU's rotten front line.
