Note: More than likely, this is your last Morning Coffee until the new year. Make sure to savor it.
Finally, the boring part of the season is over. Outside of the two UW games, the non-conference schedule has been a yawner. The officials didn't do anything to help the cause, but the game against Northern Colorado was just brutal to watch. But the next three games all should be entertaining.
LSU has a football title to worry about and basketball has been an afterthought ever since Shaq left. However, at 7-3, the Tigers will serve as MU's last non-conference road test, followed by a quick turnaround to face a tough 9-3 UWM team that should make for a pretty entertaining game on Thursday. Add in a desperate Vandy team and Marquette's three remaining games of 2011 are all pretty important. Lastly, I know it's been said before, but this team really, really, really misses Chris Otule on defense.
