Maybe the day when Marquette basketball student tickets go on sale isn't the best day on the college basketball calendar. There's the first game day, the first conference game day, Selection Sunday, the first weekend of the NCAA tournament, the first day of practices, Midnight Madness day... well, there's a lot of really great days on the calendar that are probably better than the day that student tickets go on sale.
But it's such a great day. It's so much fun to see tweets come rolling in where the students voice their enthusiasm for the upcoming season.
Got my basketball tickets #mubb— Mercedes Valacer (@mercedesvalacer) September 22, 2015
Almost immediately checked my email to buy tickets. I've been an alum for two years now. Instincts. #mubb https://t.co/UP1Q4c9LNS— Allen Halas (@AllenHalas) September 22, 2015
I like the cut of your jib, sir.

Hey, that's right, MU has two guys on the team sharing a birthday, too. That's kind of neat.
Season tickets bought, can't wait for the #mubb season! @MarquetteMBB— Austin Rooke (@arooke2) September 22, 2015

Should get a pretty nice treat for your final season on the north end of the Bradley Center.
I've never been so excited to drop $100 #mubb— Eric Gebhart (@ericgebby) September 22, 2015
Snagged some season tickets the second they came out #mubb #RoadToTheShip— Obes (@BrianOberlies) September 22, 2015
Your ticket buying game is on point. Now we just need to work on your Twitter game, since this was posted two hours after they went on sale.
Finally website. Thank you. Now I can start being excited for #mubb. Start counting down the days!— Sam Newberry (@Snewb22) September 22, 2015
I'm confused. "Start?" There's a point at which we're supposed to stop being excited for Marquette basketball?
https://t.co/LYzh6rtBvC Man, it feels like just yesterday I bought Fanatics tickets for the first time. Let's make it a good last year #mubb— Jason Appel (@JasonAppelPi314) September 22, 2015
Annnnnd.... that's it? That's all of the tweets about buying tickets? Y'know what? That felt a little weaker than normal. Do we just have a lot of people who aren't hip to using the #mubb tag?
Just bought my season tickets for Marquette's Men's Basketball games #Hyped— Seby Achettu (@SebyAchettu30) September 22, 2015
Just got my Marquette basketball season tickets— Lauren (@Laurenopo88) September 22, 2015
Well, ok, maybe not "a lot." Then again, last year was the worst year for Marquette basketball since long before the freshmen were even born, so I suppose a little bit of muted enthusiasm is to be expected.
Just make sure you keep track of anyone who was wearing Badger red last March and question their morals when you see them wearing blue and gold once Henry and the boys get rolling this winter.
