Things are bleak, but they can't be so bad that Marquette would lose at home to DePaul. Right?

DePAUL'S LAST WIN IN MILWAUKEE CAME 13 YEARS AGO.

That was my freshman year at MU. We scored 35 points, and Brian Wardle had 20 of them. I'm not saying this year's Marquette squad won't break 40 points against the Blue Demons; DePaul's defense is too bad for that to happen. But I wouldn't be surprised if Marquette struggles to break 60 today.


THIS IS GOOD BEER. BOTTOMS UP.

We might need a potent Chicago craft beer to get through this affair, so today's Pint Touch is Half Acre Beer Company's Over Ale.
