Is up down and right left? Is #MUBB a defensive team that struggles on offense?

We've gotten more clarity in the last week about what Marquette is this season both in the micro and macro sense. We first revisit the Kansas game, a tale of two halves and discuss what it means within the context of the Wojo era. That discussion leads to a conversation around how real the idea is that MU is now defensively competent and a problem on offense. And more importantly, what does it take to "heal" the offense. We spend some time talking Louisville results as well and what that tell us about the maturity of the team. We then turn attention to the upcoming game against Kansas State, a top 15 program, coming to the Fiserv Forum on Saturday. They are a strong defensive team who's looked good but against less than stellar competition whereas MU has looked questionable at times but against quality competition. We close out the pod with Joe being completely unaware that Katie Holmes has a Marquette connection and a quick debate of famous not athlete MU fans/alum. As always, enjoy! https://scrambledeggs.podbean.com/mf/play/6cucdy/ScrambledEggs_editted_112818.mp3
