Brew Hoop Night Shift: August 16th, 2017

Welcome to the Brew Hoop Night Shift. Every evening at 9:00pm (central time), this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. What Bucks news did we not cover? What topics do you want to break down further? Or is there something non-Bucks that you want to bounce off of one another? Even something non-basketball? This is the place.

Today’s (on)topic: Marquette Moves to the WESC

This announcement was expected, but now it is officially official. Marquette’s Men’s Basketball team will continue to share the court with the Milwaukee Bucks. I can only imagine access to the WESC will help boost Marquette’s recruiting profile. So, uh, kind of welcome back, Golden Eagles!

Today’s (off)topic: 2026 World Cup

Hey Green Bay! Lambeau Field is on the preliminary list of host sites for the 2026 World Cup. I don’t really see Lambeau hosting with Soldier Field and U.S. Bank Field being on the list. Chicago and Minneapolis have better infrastructure in place to host a major international event. The United States would host all matches from the quarterfinals on. I would guess that New York/New Jersey host the final match with the semi-finals being held in Dallas and Atlanta. What say you, basketball fans?

As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
