"Cords said the decision wasn't the result of pressure from Indian groups."

"The decision - which Cords attributed to unspecified university officials..."

Somebody should get a prison sentence for this atrocity!

No, it was the result of pressure from Donna Shalala.

Welcome to the DiUlio regime....where one man gets all the credit when things are going well, and the university hides behind a veil of secrecy otherwise.

You see this in higher education all of the time.  After the "grandfatherly" figure that ran the place for years, you hire someone who is going to kick-start the institution and knock it around a little.  Face it, when Raynor left, MU was in trouble.  Crime was a problem...enrollment took a hit...basketball was in shambles...

DiUlio did a couple of things that were very helpful for the University.  He got basketball back on track....got rid of a lot of the blight on the campus borders, etc.  But he was such a prick.  On top of that, he hired a bunch of pricks to work for him.

He was wrong on closin' the Ave. Shoulda recommended a 20 ft. gated fence around the campus instead.

Well, I remember one article where he said "We could either build a fence around the place or work to improve the neighborhood."  They did the latter and it was a good choice.  The neighborhood around campus is much better than it was 25 years ago when I was in school - it's still not great, but it's better.

I have never been able to confirm this but a well-connected alumnus once told me the whole thing was part of a deal DiUlio cut with the Potawatomi Indians. They owned the land where Valley Fields now stands. When DiUlio approached them about buying it, they said they would sell it if he changed the name.

Help me remember.. I was probably too busy mackin chicks at the Wet Spot and learning to buy cars from Trebby.. but, I recall voting between GEs and Lightning... what I don't remember is if there were any open meetings, votes, etc... to get down to those two names.  I remember thinking Hilltoppers would be OK with me if Warriors wasn't a possibility, but it wasn't an option.

I was too much of a young dip**** back then, but if I could rewind probably would have raised a little more hell that year.  And would have purchased more Warriors attire.

At least we now have a spot for the lacrosse team to play. :/

Wish we could bring back Warriors, Grebe's on Wisconsin and Dahmer.

Yeah, Lightning.  The "alternative" that was alleged to be the other name that got the most votes.  I remember being pissed off about that.

Jay Bee, that is how I remember it, GE's vs. Lightning.  There was even a rumor going around that Lightning prevailed, but that was just a rumor.  Agree, if I was half as aware then I would have raised hell.  I did vote for Lightning, but I was probably impaired shall we say.

Respectfully, you are simply in error.  The 'SLU solution' would have been a major mistake.  Part of the reason that MU has become more of a national draw was the decision to strongly support Avenues West.  It's a very cool place to go to school now, in part because of the strength of the neighborhood.

And no disrespect to SLU.  Their enviroment further from downtown probably dictated their 'fence' solution.  But the campus has an island feeling as a result.

Fordham has a fence and their campus is much nicer than ours and so is their "national draw"

Agreed...I'd still like to see Wisconsin Ave. closed...probably in the minority on that one, but urban campuses can really offer a lot to students and the community.

Hah, no kidding.  Of course, I was probably too poor that point to stock up on Warriors gear to keep me through the next 50 years....
