    This should be a fun thread. A final list of 10 potential Marquette mascots were chosen for fans to vote on. The incredibly lame list is as follows:

    Blue and Gold
    Explorers
    Golden Avalanche
    Golden Eagles
    Golden Knights
    Hilltoppers
    Saints
    Spirit
    Voyagers
    Wolves

    Marquette needs some help...lets throw out some ideas!

    Why is Marquette changing their nickname? What was it before, an anti-Indian name or something?

    Weren't they the Golden Eagles? I guess you can't offend birds of prey anymore either. (sheesh)

    They should change to the Golden Shower. They always seem to rain threes on the court

    They used to be the warriors and people got offended. recently they changed it from golden eagles or golden flashes or whatever they were last year to the gold. the alumni all cried about it so they changed their minds.

    They should be the fighting Jesuits. Their new slogan could be "Non Gradus Anus Rodentum!" which is Latin for "Not worth a rat's ass"

    Bwahaha... what a mess this is. The only reason anyone wanted to change 'Golden Eagles' was to get 'Warriors' back... and that's the one name that the school will NOT allow, so this whole mess is totally pointless. There was a big donor that offered big money to change back, which is what set things off.

    They went through months of surveys before deciding out of the blue (ha...) to go with 'Golds,' a decision which lasted about two days, during which you would have thought war was breaking out here. Odd, something about a religiously affiliated organization selecting what could be construed as the most worldly of nicknames didn't go over well.

    "Jumping Jesuits" is getting a lot of write-in votes from what I hear. "Hilltoppers" seems the most likely, but everyone agrees that is lame. There was a long radio debate yesterday about whether or not Marquette should make the bold out-of-the-box move of announcing they will be the first college to officially not have a nickname. :roll2:

    Its not that you can't offend birds of prey, but you can't discriminate against birds of prey because of the color of their feathers (Gold).

    I think the name is very offensive. Some of my best eagle friends are golden.

    How about the 'Gold Thieves'? Think back to the Spanish Catholics hauling all of that precious metal from Latin America back to Spain in the 1500s.

    Or the Golden C3PO's, maybe they have a lot of Star Wars fans.
