Marquette and UD, two schools with much in common, have an inexplicable hate towards each other. I realize the two programs faced each other continually through the 80s and 90s, last meeting in the “Chicago Invitational Challenge” in 2008, but the disdain between the old rivals seems odd at this point.
When Dayton was rumored to be a prime candidate in the Big East’s expansion (whew, dodged that bullet!) it seemed the loudest chorus of disapproval came from Milwaukee.
I was recently sent this video, think it’s from a few months ago, from a Marquette message board. Full disclosure, I chuckled.
