The only games Marquette had this year that sold out or even came close was Notre Dame and Wisconsin, two big rivals. Georgetown, Pitt, Syracuse, UConn, none came close. They just aren't a huge draw and they are the only sport Marquette has that draws decently.
I thought Herb Kohl didn't care about the losses, he just wanted to bring NBA basketball to Wisconsin. Kind of like the sports side of the turn of the century magnates funding big art museums, archaeological museums, aquariums, zoos, and the like. The impression I got was he was never going to sell the team, leaving that to his successor.
Where do you think the Bucks might relocate to, assuming the Kings add another notch to their city belt and fill the Seattle spot?
