Mike Broeker: Dropping Knowledge

Hey, check it out! I found a picture of Buzz with Broeker in the background trying to figure out what that crazy Texan is up to!

Marquette has a strong presence in social media, both as a university as a whole and specifically from the athletic department. This was evident once again as deputy athletic director Mike Broeker hopped on Twitter and dished out some information regarding Marquette's basketball programs.

Hit the jump and we'll get into what Broeker said.

First up, we get a confirmation as to how the Big East will alter its schedule to keep the men's basketball schedule at 18 conference games without West Virginia. Adding a fourth mirror game was the obvious answer, but now we know. Moving on to bit #2....

Lots of information here in so few words. First: the LSU game in the Bradley Center will not be part of the BE/SEC Challenge. Second: Marquette's going to be playing an SEC team on the road. This past season was the first year that included as many teams as possible, so it's reasonable to think that the SEC teams that played a road game last year will be staying home this year. Here's the list of last year's road teams: Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt. We can obviously toss out LSU from that list, while adding the SEC's new additions of Missouri and Texas A&M as candidates for Marquette's opponents. Anybody have any preferences as to who Marquette should play? Vote in the poll below!

Last bit of news....

Thanks to Broeker for confirming the news originally reported by noted Bruce Springsteen enthusiast Liz Clarke of the Washington Post in her article about Tyler's mother, Pat Summitt, stepping down as head coach of the Tennessee Lady Volunteers. Tyler will be joining Terri Mitchell's staff after he graduates from Tennessee in just three years.
