The Marquette Related Tweet Of The Week: 7/17-7/23

It's a long off season, even if we're just marking time until Marquette's soccer teams begin defending their division titles in August. We're going to have to come up with some way to entertain ourselves, and this is one of them. Each week, we'll feature a Marquette related tweet that struck our fancy. It might be someone saying something ridiculous, maybe it'll be a link to a New York Times blog about Jae Crowder's potential impact on the Dallas Mavericks (it's not, but this is), or who knows what. All we can guarantee is that it will be entertaining.

Let's hit the jump for this week's tweet!

I'm not going to lie to you guys. There have been a number of players who have left Marquette's men's basketball program since Buzz Williams took over as head coach. Some of the departures were unexpected, and some were total surprises. Some involved players in the middle of the season, and some involved players who barely had a chance to unpack. In any case, the departures have led various critics of the Golden Eagles to steal Mark Titus' nickname for the Wisconsin basketball players and refer to such departures as "Buzz cuts."

The truth is that these people are entitled to their opinion. That led to this tweet this week:

Like I said, Mr. Davis is entitled to his opinion. However, I'd have to say that it's going to come as a complete shock to Vander Blue, Davante Gardner, and Jamil Wilson that they will be victims of a "Buzz cut" when their eligibility expires following the conclusion of the 2013-14 season.

Facts are facts, and in this case, the fact is that Marquette doesn't currently have any commitments for the 2014 class, and Buzz is going to need to sign three guys up to come in that year. I'm not asking for much from Bucky fans, I'm just asking for a basic grasp of first grade arithmetic.
