Marquette Officially On a Losing Streak

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IFebruary 10, 2009

I'm not sure which was worse: the fact that Villanova put up more than 100 points on Marquette in 40 minutes of play, or that we were subjected to ESPN2 Interactive for much of the game on Tuesday.

Seriously, what is up with that scroll that posts text messages from viewers? How annoying is that? I want to hear commentary about the game from the announcers, not from random 'Nova fans that have access to a cell phone.

All game long we had to endure this crap. I'm really not sure what this technology does to enhance a broadcast, quite honestly.

Between the messages about free cheesecake for everyone and how good the Big East is, I found my eyeballs wondering to the top of the screen more than to the actual action. And for that, I am a tad upset.

When Villanova did knock off Marquette by a final score of 102-84, I wanted to hear about how good 'Nova might be, or how a two-game losing streak would affect the Golden Eagles from here on out.
Instead, I got this little nugget from Roland3402: "Huge win for Nova."

Wow. Thanks ESPN2.

And now, as you've come to this site for reaction on the MU loss, you've instead gotten a bitch-fest about ESPN2. I am now subjecting you to the same distraction that we suffered during the game. My deepest apologies.

As for the game, Nova ultimately played just too fast and nailed too many three-point shots for Marquette to keep up with.

Marquette was playing well early on, and I thought for sure that the Eagles would be able to rebound after their loss to South Florida. But it wasn't meant to be, and MU will look to rebound against St. John's on St. Valentine's Day.

I'll be front-row in front of my TV for that game as well, as I'm planning to spend the holiday alone—again.
Maybe I wouldn't mind the company of Roland3402 after all...
