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....

No need when MUScoop has inside connections periodically selling them to us. ;)

DiUlio was all ego, but it was nice to go to the Sweet 16 (and the NIT Finals?) during his last years while at MU.

Ouch!  Only 20 years ago?  I hate this change so much that it seems like its been a forty year hang nail.
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say 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.

There were two votes as I recall.  And wasn't "Spirit" one of the choices?   I forget the other semi-finalist.  Golden Eagles was a foregone conclusion.  It was the talk of the athletic department before the "votes" were tallied.

Im embarassed to admit that I remember being really excited when they revealed the Golden Eagle mascot and he skated around on roller blades.  I thought he was awesome...then again I was 9.  Mind you I also LOVED Bleuteaux as a child

After the canning of Bluteaux , I "volunteered" to play an "unofficial mascot" for 2 games in the 1990-91 season.

I do not understand this unbridled hatred for Gold.  I understand the unbridled hatred for getting rid of Warriors, I agree with it.  But Gold is a far cooler name that Golden Eagles (Again Warriors is the preferred name but that is not going to happen).

Gold is unique  No one else has the name Gold.  Gold puts in with a select number of schools that use a color as their mascot.  I like MU among this select list:

Stanford = Cardinal (its the color not the bird)
U of Chicago = Maroons
Harvard = Crimson
NYU = Violets
Syracuse = Orange
Cornell = Big Red
Denison = Big Red
Dartmouth = Big Green


I would rather be associated with the schools above than this list:

Cal State-L.A. Golden Eagles
Charleston (WV) Golden Eagles
Clarion Golden Eagles
John Brown University Golden Eagles
Oral Roberts Golden Eagles
Southern Miss Golden Eagles
SUNY Brockport Golden Eagles
Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles
Spaluding Golden Eagles
Charleston Golden Eagles
Northeastern Illinois Golden Eagles
La Sierra Golden Eagles
Cornerstone Golden Eagles
St. Joes - Long Island Golden Eagles
Minn - Cookson Golden Eagles




You guys blew it.  We would be better off as Gold.  Instead you all whined like Occupy Wall Street and made it worse.  Thanks a lot!!

(and again!  I'm not saying it's better than Warriors)

I wonder how the guy pictured on the right hand side of column (Royce Dam) is doing these days. 

I just got off the phone with Royce. He is a bit hard of hearing but he has a fascinating story to tell. We shared our love of fly fishing and it turns out Royce is a Marine who served throughout the Pacific Campaign. Royce was in the 3rd wave to hit the beach at Iwo Jima - the wave when the Japanese defenders finally opened fire. Royce related that his unit took 80% casualties within the first 10 minutes of hitting the black sand. He mentioned that by the end of that first day his Platoon Leader was a Lance Corporal - everyone else in the chain of command was gone. Royce fought on Iwo for a week before finally catching a few. He was awarded the Bronze Star, Purple Heart and his war was over.

He said he was also on the front page of the last edition of the Milwaukee Sentinel, pictured with an American Flag. Unlike too many other nations, our military has always consisted of citizen soldiers like Royce who answered the call to duty, served with distinction, then returned to their civilian life. But while Royce left Iwo Jima it is clear that Iwo Jima never left him. God bless the Royce Dam's of this Republic.

I had heard at the time from someone that should know (a trustee) that Warriors won in a write-in so the University took GE.

At the time I was so mad that I wrote in "PC a$$holes" and withheld my donation that year.

This discussion made me go back to that link to see what else was going on that day.  The other picture on the front page is the widow of my high school classmate who had just died in the Black Hawk Down mission.  Dan Busch was another who answered the call to duty.

I gotta ask if you knew this great Pinoy in McCormick named Mark Afable. Fr Rick Abert got us together to give us the "Have you considered becoming a Jesuit?" talk  when Mark commented, "You know Fr, being a Jesuit sounds great but there's this one little thing I'm not sure I can give up..." Even Rick laughed. Mark was one of the nicest guys I met at Marquette.

I know Mark.  Good guy.  He's an attorney for American Family (Corporate side) in Madison.

Glad to hear he's done well. He was a very genuine person back in the day. Seems he couldn't get over that one little thing, though.

Hey, you never know. Afable was a great guy. Made the year in McCormick more bearable. I'm not surprised he did well, though. Mark was a very high character individual. His parents reared him well. Not many API's at Marquette, bro.

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

Might also have something to do with the fact that Fordham is almost 50 spots higher in the US News Rankings than SLU (take the rankings for what they are, but perception is often reality), and Fordham is in New York City, while SLU is in Saint Freaking Louis, Missouri.

Having graduated from Marquette and SLU Law, I must say the "Island" effect is jarring at SLU. Campus is 2.5 to 3 miles from the Arch and downtown St. Louis, and while it is an extremely well-manicured campus with statues and artificial ponds, the neighborhood goes south REAL fast once you get two blocks out in pretty much any direction.

"Lightning" or "Spirit" would have sucked far worse than "Golden Eagles".

Those are names you give an Arena Football team.

"Lightning" was the name of the slow moving janitor in the "Amos and Andy" TV series. Not sure it would have passed the PC test either.
