Your Marquette story is a little off...

Posted By: DanielLaRussoUte
Date: Thursday, December 29, 2011 at 12:26 pm

They changed from the (insensitive?) Warriors to the Eagles in 1994...then in 2004 there was an attempt to bring back the Warriors name that went ignored by the Board of Trustees...Who then decided to name the team the Marquette Gold...the fans were so sickened by THAT name that the begged to go back to a name they already hated.

Not really a positive example...in fact, it shows the spite for fans that can exist at the top levels of a University quite well.

o NEW: I think all red helmets with white or black UU on them would be perfect. Over the left shoulder blank on the right. (nm)

cbute icon NEW: I agree that if the decision was made a long time ago and fans/alumni were not informed at that time, whoever made that decision made a very bad decision.

cbute icon NEW: I agree with you as to personnel decisions, but the logo and name that represents my alma mater should be decided by the alumni, not an employee of the University. (nm)
