Was that a GREAT weekend of sports or what? First Marquette wins the Big East lidlifter, TCU wins the Rose Bowl, Packers beat the Bears and then the Fightin' Illini won a Big Ten game. I love when groups and people are exposed as frauds. Doing it on a national stage makes it even sweeter. Amazing what happens when you play an opponent with some actual talent on its roster.
As for Marquette, they appear to have found what they were looking for. True, they lost at Vandy but you felt they were playing with sense of urgency and purpose. So maybe the light bulb went off in their heads and they've learned what it takes to win and play a full 40 minutes. Well, I at least hope so because we're going to need lots of Big East wins because we don't have any quality non-conference wins.
Fact: Jim Burr is a terrible official.
