  • Scrambled Eggs is back and we're catching up on the season

    Stop...Bracket Time!

    While it's not actually a bracket today, we have the first Cracked Sidewalks S-Curve of the 2020-21 season. I've aimed for Christmas in recent years, but felt waiting was warranted considering we didn't really have much data to work with, and because…

  • Marquette vs. Georgetown - 2 Worst Turnover Differential Teams in Big 6 Conferences
    Another great day shooting for Marquette led to a great start, but lopsided loss to Villanova. The one problem once again was turnovers. Yes, 7 of 16 free throws was a bad night, but on average a team hits 11 of 16 free throws so that only costs Marq…

    It's been a whirlwind week for #mubb and we're back to talk about it. We talk about the three games since last we posted. We spend time talking about what is going on with the defense and if the concern is overblown or not. We then talk about the new…

    Show Awards and No Surprises

    In terms of bawfulness, there probably would have been no better outcome at the NBA's first annual award ceremony than for LeBron to win over James Harden, generating the gif that would be playing below of a slow motion zoom on Harden's face--the per…

    The Summer of LeBron has Begun

    There was a moment in these playoffs where it really looked questionable whether the Warriors and Cavaliers (both down 2-3 in the conference finals) would be making it to their 4th showdown. Then of course, Paul's hamstring went and the Celtics reali…
