I guess this probably means that if you live in China, you ain’t gonna be seeing South Park anytime soon

Congrats to Markus. Individual preseason awards are great for our players/program.

Postseason awards (individual and especially team awards) are even better.

Markus won a few last year. Powell didn't.

Unless they had a Cow sidecar, it's just another MKE Bloody knock-off.  Yawn

Speaking from Indy, I would love if someone here attempted a Milwaukee knock-off. Here, they just put some cheap mix in a glass with a pickle or celery. No sidecar. The Marys considered good here wouldn't even move the needle in Wisconsin.

Pathetic

You can’t win postseason awards before the season starts.

In winning 8 out of its last 11 games, Xavier beat exactly one team ranked in the KenPom Top 50: Villanova at home. In fact, that was their only win against a Top 50 team all season.

Two of their other wins during that stretch came against St. John's -- which faded badly down the stretch and lost 6 of its last 8 games (including one against DePaul).

Two more wins were against KenPom #55 Creighton at home (in OT) and on a neutral court in the Big East tournament (by 2 points). That came after losing to the Jays by 22 in Omaha.

Plus road wins against #60 Seton Hall (by 1 point) and #79 Providence, and a home NIT victory over #61 Toledo. Not all that impressive, if you ask me.

Xavier has a lot to prove if they're going to be one of the 3 or 4 best teams in the Big East this season.

Good read, thanks for posting.  Nice to hear that Gilligan is willing to set his ego aside and listen to the talented people he’s surrounded himself with.

Also, RIP Robert Forster.  Very underrated and underused actor.  His scene in El Camino is terrific.

It's a fantastic honor for Markus and a great spotlight for the Marquette program. Sports programmers like FOX Sports, ESPN and CBS Sports love to hype the stars. Hopefully the team takes full advantage and make some noise this season. As Markus has said, there's unfinished business to take care of.

And leaving student athletes out to dry...

Yep, Dr. B. But the good news is that the NCAA, in their great and unmatched wisdom, has taken the 2016 Division III football title away from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor because a coach let a player use his car.

Obviously, that's worse than keeping athletes eligible by funneling hundreds and hundreds of them into bogus classes for years.

Mrs. 82 and I were in Chicago this past weekend visiting our son, his wife and our new twin grandsons. We needed to watch the Panthers game in London on Sunday at 8:30 a.m. It was on the NFL Network, which our son does not get, and we were having trouble finding a place to watch it. Finally, my daughter found a place called The Piggery on Irving Park and Ashland -- mostly a sports bar, but they also serve breakfast. The food was much better than I expected, and I loved the $5 Bloody Mary special.

Why am I talking about this? Because the Bloody Mary was topped with a skewer that included pepperoni, pickles and cheese curds! Delish!!
