Back at Bloggin

I have had quite the absence from the blogosphere lately for many reasons that I will explain in later posts. But for my first blog in 4+ months, I thought I would share a great youtube video I came across this weekend.

For those that have been living under a rock the past 2 weeks, my alma mater, Marquette University is in the Sweet 16 for the 15th time and enjoying back to back appearances for the first time since 1977. The awesome folks at the MU athletic department came into the locker room and recorded Buzz Williams post game speech. I love this video because it provides a behind the scenes look into Marquette Basketball, Buzz Williams and what a winning atmosphere looks and feels like.

I loved playing for Coach Crean at Marquette but I would have loved to play for Coach Buzz as well. I really enjoy working for him at the Marquette Basketball camps in the summer. Through the camps I am able to see how much his players like him and how hard they are willing to work for him.

I was listening to the radio while driving the other day and I heard Fran Fraschilla give the MU b ball team the highest compliment anybody can give. I can't give the exact quote but he said that Marquette plays so hard that it is like someone told them that they will be executed if they do not win the game. I thought that was great and it made me proud to be part of the Marquette Basketball family.

One look at this video and it is easy to see why Marquette is in back to back Sweet 16's. Enjoy it and enjoy March Madness.
