Is it possible MU will not have a Gavit Games game this year?

Yep - ABUWM just like ABD.

Always laugh at scoopers afraid of Milwaukee

Personally, not afraid of UWM and would be happy to crush them each year. 

But the 1 decent year with Pearl spawned 5 years of “Marquette is afraid to play us” from all 20 of their fans and their ridiculous stance of it needs to be a home and home series.  That’s my ABUWM.

Holding a grudge against all 14 of UWM fans because of one loss two decades ago is silly.  I'd be happy to play them every year.  In fact, if they could get some level of success where they had potential to be a Q2 game, I'd definitely support a "home and home" or 2:1 home and home series since attendance would probably only be 12-13k anyway.  Would love the nostalgia of playing at the MECCA every second or third year.  Not sure about the funding details of being at the Fiserv, but I'd imagine there'd be a way to make playing at our old arena mutually beneficial.

Umm, loss?   Marquette is 44-0 or so against the Panthers.  Two of those 14 fans are close friends and hammered me for 5 years of Marquette being afraid to play. And yes, I can hold a grudge against the Panthers a long time.

No one here is afraid of freaking UW-Milwaukee. It's more that people are tired of them.

If you care to look at their message board on this issue you will see that they "would like"  a home and home with Marquette but would settle for  2-1. And their loudest screamer over there is advocating that the best way to go about this is for UWM fans to call in  local sports call in shows and flood the airwaves with "why is Marquette afraid to play us". That this approach will certainly cajole MU into giving them a series.

I feel like it's 2005-06 all over again. If MU's coach and AD think it makes sense to play, then put them on the schedule. If not, then don't. Simple.

And I don't give a phock what their NET or RPI or KenPom numbers are, they are a low major program playing in a low major conference. It's not Marquette's duty to help them prop up their program.

I could have sworn there was a loss in there somewhere.   :o   oh well!    Whatever... point still stands.

For me it has nothing to do with UWM and everything to do with seeing MU playing in one of their historical venues.  They could even do throwback jerseys and a big marketing campaign.   I can't imagine we make much off of buy games, so why not work out some kind of financial deal with UWM to make it work for both sides?

I think at least one game near the end of our run of playing them was pretty close until the end.

Not much of an endorsement for scheduling UW-Milwaukee------"we play one bad team, we might as well play two?

Sounds good.

My guess is that you are correct------a straight up "buy game" every year", take it or leave it.

That was tried. There was no buzz. They couldn't sell the game out.

Absolutely, they can. But Chicago State understands that they are simply a buy game and will never get a return game. The wouldn't even consider asking for one. Despite being in the Horizon League, Milwaukee thinks that they should get a return game. I don't think any other Horizon League or low major program would expect --  much less demand -- a return game from Marquette.

If Shaka and the powers that be think it makes sense to schedule Milwaukee, they should go for it. If they don't think it makes sense, they should simply [continue to] ignore Milwaukee fans' efforts to shame them into it.  That said, I do kind of like the idea of a throwback game played at MECCA.

When it comes to this particular topic, UW-Milwaukee fans remind me of those Circadian insects in the eastern part of the U. S. Every 17 years they appear from underground; make a lot of noise; have sex; crawl back underground and die. Just as every decade or so UWM has a decent  season and the 500 or so fans they have are front and center, bitching about why Marquette won't play them. So MU finally plays them and goes 5-0 in a 5 game series. They then disappear for 15 years or so and the cycle repeats itself.

You were so close that I actually googled to see if the words have the same origins. Alas, they do not. You're thinking of Cicadas.

Dead on analogy, by the way.

Exactly, and yes, play them with the same terms as any other 200+ Kenpom team as a buy game.

If I remember correctly, they made it very difficult for MU fans to buy tickets and only included the MU game in one of their season ticket packages. I recall trying to go and it being more of a hassle than it was worth. I could be wrong though but that’s what I remember.

No, but they have been going first Saturday in December for a couple years now. Trusting that to continue. Will amend if it changes.
