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".



You mean because the Braves were hot and Marquette wanted to capitalize on the marketing and also go with an Native American mascot name?
But I like to throw handfuls...

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,

That is one thing? What else could it possibly be? The administrators looking for support of the Golden Eagles nickname, 17 years later? That IS the thing. Filling a stadium with the home teams colors is a great thing for both players and fans. It is a shame people like yourself refuse based on some propoganda disguised as morals. "Don't tell me what to do" makes you sound like a five year old. On behalf of Pere Marquette, Father Wild, Al McGuire and all of the evil administrators who organized this shameful "Gold out", I'm genuinely sorry for asking you for anything.

What a sad, sad life you must lead. Being filled with bitterness is no way to go through life.

No life to speak of and I'm not a whole lot of fun either. That's why I wouldn't want to make things worse by dressing up because a bunch of losers at Nelligan Sports Marketing think it'd look good on TV.

Yea, it was such a noble cause that none of the Hilltopper fans should be pissed.

Errrr.... welllllll Iiiiiii.... uhhhhh.... you see.... hmmmm.... GO WARRIORS!

I know you are not defending that. I'm just sayin'.

For the record, I'm "pro-everything". If you like Warriors, that's awesome. I like them all. It's just a nickname.

To quote Richard from Tommy Boy "It's called reading. Top to bottom, left to right. Group words together as a sentence. Take Tylenol for any headaches, Midol for any cramps."

I said I support the Gold Out. I just don't like people like you telling other people to stop supporting the Warrior name. Maybe they grew up supporting the Jim, Damon, Rob, the Tony's, etc.

No excuse, ladies.  This sweater with those pants!!!!!!  Maybe it would give the opponents vertigo . .. similar to claims made about the stripes on the old warrior uni's.

HAHA!!...until Lazar knocks down back to back 3s with 5 minutes left to go in the game to put MU up 6 and they start playing "jump Around"!!

...too far?...perhaps


Anyways....


I don't want to get into the discussion as far as the gold out...but if you have that big of a problem with it...buy one of the GOLD 'Warriors Forever', or 'Marquette Warriors' T-shirts...everyone is happy....

Warriors, Hilltoppers, Golden Eagles...any of them work...but i know one thing is for sure...

WE ARE...MARQUETTE!!!

I think we should go back to the Gold. Never were Marquette fans and alums so united.

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.

Those are good (and seemingly always available), but while they last, I like these (style wise) better...

At Mississippi State they have a maroon/white out.  Every other section is alternating in color for their game against Kentucky.

I'll never forget standing in the median on Wisconsin Avenue with a giant sign that said "Honk if you hate 'Gold'" during rush hour.  That got a lot of great responses.

I'm an older alum.  Got my gold MU shirt 3 years ago.  It doesn't say "Yellow Chickens" on it anywhere.  I wear it to all the games I go to and somehow don't feel morally compromised even though I'm a Warrior fan.  (Still have a circa 1980 t-shirt in storage.)  You should wear gold Thursday NOT because of ESPN or the administration, but so when the team walks out on the court they see a sea of yellow in the stands.  It's to inspire those guys on the court.  So my unsolicited advice for all you bitter alums out there is swallow hard, put on the gold, and do it for the TEAM we support!

P.S. Love those pants!

I was in grad school at Marquette when Al was here and we won it all.  I wear Gold to all the games.  If they're calling for a gold-out to support the team, intimate the opponents, help us win, I'm all for it.

GO MARQUETTE!
