Boy that Earl Tatum was one weak-kneed SOB for giving in and wearing a gold uniform....

In my opinion if the old timers are going to complain about the student section, which as a recent grad I will admit is down this year, then we can complain about your stubbornness in not wearing gold.   

That is an excellent point.  As an "old timer" I love to see a game on TV where entire rows of people are decked out in the same color and all jumping up and down in unison and yelling their lungs out each and every possession.  I think it is awesome and one of the reasons the college basketball experience is so incredible.  So, PRN, I am a lemming for wanting the Bradley Center to create that type of atmosphere?

So be it.  I am a lemming.  

Go Marquette!

I'm all for Warriors, but it's not like our mascot is based off some p**sy animal.

You guys are lemmings!!! If I'm not wearing gold I'm not supporting the team? What a joke!!

You're probably the same guys who get excited when your company lets you wear jeans to work. Yeah!! Blues jeans!! At work!! This is awesome!!! And cookies in the break room, too!!!

The most backward and self-defeating point to make about this (and there are many) is that groupthink and being a lemming is EXACTLY what makes being the fan of a team and going to games so great.  Its why a weak student section or a divided student section severely detracts from a game. Its why the BC is at its best when the students get the alums all riled up and everyone is standing.  Heck, its why you wear Marquette gear anywhere or have gear on your car.

To say that you won't do what everyone is doing at a sporting event to not being a lemming is sheer hypocrisy. Its the one area of your life where you are supposed to be a lemming.

Wow, you are such a nonconformist.  Your condemnation of people who follow a simple, good intentioned directive in order to drum up support is so free thinking and admirable!


+1

The anger some people harbor over a color is pretty remarkable.  It's true that I don't normally walk around wearing anything gold....but I guess that's the point....you'll be at a Marquette game....in the Bradley Center....it's one of our school colors....always has been.  Those who are so adamantly against it should just wear black from head to toe...every game....that'll show 'em.  

I'm pretty sure a lot of people in Syracuse don't always walk around wearing bright orange either aside from game days....West Virginia doesn't seem to have a problem with a gold out....suck it up people.

I watched a few min of the UCONN-Oklahoma women's game last night and the entire arena was wearing pink.  Now you want to bitch about gold being an ugly or lame color, 12K people were decked out in cotton candy pink.  Men, women, young and old alike.  And as a result, it actually looked pretty cool.  So I think that tosses the whole "eww gold is ugly" argument out the window.  Besides, I have a feeling if it was a blue or navy "out", people would find a way to moan and groan about being told what to do regardless.

I prefer jeans to suits and I like cookies. My desire to follow the herd has also caused me to love my wife and to enjoy spending time with my kids. Darnitall! I can't believe what a lemming I am! It's clearly time to re-examine my priorities.

Seriously, Marquette's color were blue and gold before they were even the Warriors. Personally, I was a "Golden Eagle" while at MU but I prefer Warriors as a nickname so I'm going to wear my gold Warriors shirt. After all, it's not "Wear Gold to Support the Administration's 1993 Decision to Change the Nickname Night".

PRN - I have no doubt that you're supporting the team.  But you could also support Marquette's effort of a gold-out just as easily.  Put a blue button-down over a gold shirt.  Wear a hoodie over a gold shirt.  Whatever, just remove the blue cover-layer during the game.  Perhaps only a few of your good buddies will look down on you then.

Actually, that's probably it, you call everyone lemmings, but you're afraid of what all your buddies would think/say if they saw you wearing gold.  They probably normally wouldn't care much, but since you're been so crotchety against it for years, the mockery would be nearly non-stop.  

Eh, nobody will change your mind.  Oh well.

As someone one in my forties, I guess I am one of the oldies on this board? 

I will wear gold on Thursday because I support Lazar, JB, DJO, Cubie, Mo, Joe, Dwight, EWill, Rob, Buzz, et al.  They proudly represent our university.

I still wish we had the Warrior nickname, but that ship has sailed.  However, I will continue to support the University and my team 100%. 

For the "oldies", pls do not use the excuse that you have nothing gold to wear at work and then to the game(s).  Gold was the "in" color this year.  Go to Lands End, Macy's, Boston Store, even JCP.  Every retailer had gold sweaters.  Land's End had great vests, too (and yes, I am female).

It's not about us.  It's about the team.  Get your Gold on!

The good news is that PRN will be easy to identify, so if you ever wanted to meet him in person, he'll be the guy not wearing gold and complaining about the mascot and Jerel McNeal.

Pitt's colors are Blue & Gold.  Pitt will be wearing road blues.  I will wear gold with duct tape over the eagle.  The key question is, will Buzz be wearing his Dr. Goldfinger suit?  

btw, stop with the "older alum ragging".  Our students do Warrior cheers all game long.  Our front row of students are dressed as Warriors.  The national press calls us Warriors.  The Warrior wear is more and more prevalent in the stands year after year--students and alums.  Our players refer to themselves as Warriors--even recent grads like Wes.  In fact, it is almost a better scenario to have our shadow nickname--considering the history, if you think about it.  MU has shown no willingness to stop it.  

Let's Go Warriors!

Unfortunately the only association to the name for students is being brainwashed by the old farts or going with the retro fad.  Unless they really loved the team and have some fond memories from when they were three years old.  The sportswriters who drop the name every once in awhile know it works better than Viagra for the old dudes.  Not much of a victory. 

Now the duct tape idea, genius.  Would be a great idea for PRN if someone provided the shirt, since the actual purchasing would be forbidden.

How about those of us who grew their entire lives as Warriors fans (my father worked at MU when I was born and returned back when I was 7 and still work there) and who graduated in 2001. I never went to school as a Warrior but still have a lot of my things from childhood.

I just personally refuse to accept the Golden Eagle and just say we, as a university, are nickname deficient.

You guys are aware they make Marquette shirts WITHOUT the Eagle on it, right?

This thread is so damn petty.  Just wear a Gold shirt and support the team. You're not endorsing a nickname or a particular administration decision by wearing Gold for one game.

I'd love to be Warriors as much as a lot of people here, but the grandstanding and excuse making on this thread is pathetic.

The "old timers" will never change, so let them get all upset. The only thing I wish, is that students would stop trying to be cool and calling themselves warriors. I was six years old in 1993. Freshman were two years old. We came to this school as Golden Eagles, and we leave this school as Golden Eagles. "Warriors" who are upset that their name got changed are the highest level of hypocrites, considering that name replaced MU Hilltoppers. Fans under 30, please please let it go. When Im an old timer, I don't want this debate to continue. There is a reason there isn't a "Bring back the Hilltoppers thread!" and that is because the students from the 50s on embraced the Warriors moniker. Lets call it like it is. Dwade, Novak, Diener, Wes, DJ, Jerel, Lazar and Jimmy were all Golden Eagles. Don't call yourself a Warrior to be retro. You (fans under 30) are a Golden Eagle. Live with it.

Only a whore would wear gold because Marquette asked for it. They've been asked to change our nickname back for many years. I'll be there and I will not have a stitch of gold on.

I appreciate your class and eloquence. Yes, you are right. I was "crapping my pants" and "sucking on my mothers tit" six years ago. I hope you being this angry brings back the Warriors, I really do. All I know, is when your generation's anger is replaced with incontinence and senility, I will wear my Golden Eagle shirt proudly. : )

To be fair, the majority of Warrior fans don't remember how or why the name changed from Hilltoppers. They just know they love "Warrirors".

I could care less. I root for Marquette. Not a mascot. I just don't like self righteous people telling anyone what to do. If it is an organized "Gold Out" to try and build unity, that is one thing, but go off pontificating like you did just makes you seem like a fool - which I am sure you damn while might be. By the way, I graduated in 2001 but have been rooting for Marquette since the 80s.
