It's Signing Day

Good morning in Marquette-land. With the official basketball season only two days away, today is a big day. That's because today starts the signing period.

Marquette is expected to sign Vander Blue and Jamail Jones during this recruiting period. With two more spots available in the class, it's certainly possible, even if most indications are that MU will continue to wait until the Spring. Regardless, with two Top 100 players already inked in this class, Buzz Williams has a great follow-up recruiting class.

Back to this season, Rosiak gave a report on DJO. There's good news here, as it turns out the foot that was injured in the MSOE game was not the original foot injury. Rosiak thinks that DJO might be held out of Friday's game, but the Marquette blog says he'll be ready for Friday's opener.

Speaking of Rosiak, he also had a chat session last night. I love those, as they are always interesting to read. Rosiak covers just about every imaginable topic under the Marquette sun. This is your must read for the day.

Finally, in good news for the Athletic Department, Marquette signed a multi-year deal to have AirTran as presenting sponsor of Marquette University Athletics. The deal was brokered by Nelligan Sports Marketing. According to Marquette, this deal will have a "traditional mix of marketing considerations plus unique elements that will be unveiled over the life of the partnership". Who knows what that means, but we support Marquette getting more cash flow.
