The Marquette Related Tweet Of The Week: 9/10-9/16

Drink deep, Marquette fans. This is a excellent vintage of schadenfreude.

This was the most ridiculous picture of Joel Stave that I could find.

Here at Anonymous Eagle, we're hip to all the latest trends on the internet... or so we tell ourselves. We know how much the kids today like to keep in touch and communicate through social media. In particular, we're big fans of the service known the world over as Twitter. Each week, we'll bring you a tweet that we found particularly interesting/funny/thought provoking/ridiculous that has some kind of Marquette connection to it.

For those of you who don't follow college football (and honestly, after what happened to the Big East, I don't blame you in the slightest), you may have missed what happened very late Saturday night/very early Sunday morning out in Arizona:


We can debate a lot of things about what Arizona State did or did not do and what the referees did or did not do, but that's not what we're here for. If you want read an in depth breakdown, go read what SB Nation's Spencer Hall wrote about it. The most important thing to focus on here, especially from a Marquette fan perspective, is that with Wisconsin down 2 points to Arizona State, Badgers quarterback Joel Stave took a snap with the clock stopped at 18 seconds and no timeouts left, ran to the middle of the field, and either attempted to or actually did kneel down, WHICH WOULDN'T STOP THE CLOCK. Really, really, really, really, really stupid play all around, regardless of what happened after that.

That's what made this Sunday morning tweet from the official Marquette athletics account so friggin' awesome.

Just one sentence, a hashtag, and a link to the Deadspin post about MU's comeback against Davidson in the Round Of 64 of the 2013 NCAA basketball tournament. THAT'S how you troll your in state rival.

It's also proof that there's no place in the Marquette fanbase for anyone who cheers for Bucky football, which is nice to see. 74 days until the start of Badger Hate Week...
