Oh no no no.  I have nothing against the chickster.  Just trying to be funny.

In that case, the score is:

Chick 348, Sultan 0
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Ok.  By "respectful imagery", I thought you meant respectful Native Indian imagery as opposed to non-native imagery.

I meant if we used respectful imagery until 1994 and then switched to non-native image without ever having Willie Wampum.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Yes.  I am sure naming the school after the Inquisition would have gone over well.

Understand my thought process:

The historical Inquisition was at least implemented if not started by the Jesuits. We could burn a heretic at the stake at halftime.

The Flames was a tortured reference St. Joan of Arc chapel, the centerpiece of our campus. 

Makes about as much sense as a damn Furry Bird, which I admit has no identity with Wisconsin or the Upper Midwest.

I think its a bit of a chicken and egg type thing. I think the above is true. But I also think that if Willie Wampum had never existed and we had always used respectful imagery, we might have been able to keep Warriors as well. It was the combination of both that killed us.

Agreed. 100%.

Ole Willie killed the Warrior.

Hmmm.... given MU's track record with the LGBTQC+ community, I'm not sure "Flames" would have went over well either.

Which poses an interesting question... which nickname - in and of itself - would be more offensive in the context of today's society, Warriors or Flames?

[Hint: The answer is neither.]

Hmmm...naming ourselves the Germans in the middle of WWI.  I don't know why that didn't happen.
Have some patience, FFS.

That's why I liked the Marquette Inquisition!

Two dozen years of travesty, today.

Let's just build the new stadium locker rooms with the right logo and close this awful chapter of mascot history.

As always. A quick google search will return the ability to buy MU Warriors tshirt as well as MU Warriors flags.

Did people seriously suggest Flames as an homage to Joan of Arc?

Let's go all the way and call ourselves the Dysentery to commemorate Fr. Marquette's cause of death.

Just me Chick.

I really suggested the Flames when the university asked for ideas to replace the Warrior.

I'd hate to see the mascot of the Marquette Dysentery. At least it would not be a frickin furry bird!!!!!

Too formal.  Could have gone with "The Huns", though.

I keep seeing that Farmer's Insurance commercial with the Flame Mascot is on fire riding in a convertible in a parade and he doesn't believe the parade watchers that he's really on fire.
