+ 100.  The elite always know better than the commoners and they make super duper decisions.

So, when Travis Diener or anyone else under 40 has a thought contrary to your own, they're "young and dumb."
And then you post this?

I think sarcasm is lost on you.

I also don’t believe MU82 based on 2005 article.  Maybe he was for it before he was against it?

Not long after the vote, I asked Diener, then a backup PG with the Pacers, which name he picked.

"Golden Eagles," he said. "That's all I know, and that's what I want to be."

Most people younger than 40 could give a rat's rump that we were Warriors when I and Doc and Lenny and Goose and so many other Scoopers attended Marquette. Forty years from now -- and actually, probably a lot sooner than that -- most won't even know we were ever the Warriors.

I liked being the Warriors. If there was more of a will to do so at the time, the school possibly could have saved the name minus the imagery. But they didn't, and that's that.

Frankly, in 2019, it's hard to believe this is even a "thing" for MU folks any more.


Then there is this from the Chicago Tribune...

It is not the way the great Warriors’ warrior--yes, Diener prefers Marquette’s former nickname, Warriors, to the current Golden Eagles--would have chosen to end it.

Until this season, Diener had never missed a basketball game because of injury. For Lent, “I gave up not getting injured,” he joked. (Avani Patel, Tribune staff reporter. Chicago Tribune. Chicago, Ill.: Mar 8, 2005. pg. 6)

I asked him myself, he answered, I recorded it and I wrote it.

Of course, Warriors was not a choice offered by MU for the name, and that was the question I asked him.

Maybe you should have asked him what he preferred....like many of us, we wrote in Warriors because the other choices were pathetic.

Good to see even the under 40 year olds got it right.

Should've at least changed back to the Hilltoppers.  At least that's somewhat unique.

That was what I voted for.

To my knowledge, Western Kentucky is the only D1 school with that nickname. There are about 842 Eagles or Golden Eagles.

I wanted the Inquisition after a period in time brought to you by the Jesuits.

Or, the Flames, after what was done to Joan of Arc, whose chapel is the centerpiece of our campus.

This is why Golden Eagles is so laothed.  It represents nothing of our school or our geographic area.  Hilltoppers, Explorers or Golden Avalanche would have been much better to align with our "independent brand".

Well, the center of campus was the Avalanche Bar, which is why the Golden Avalanche had resonance. But, lo and behold, it too was bulldozed in the middle of the night like the Warriors/Gold fiascos, FFP and the KoC mansion. Alumni engagement hasn't been a traditional strength over the decades. Basketball has been the stitch holding things together.

If FFP referrs to the Freshman Frontier Program, that's still there. https://www.marquette.edu/ffp/
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

It’s not the same FFP.

FFP before, as we all know, was to give kids a shot at attending MU who wouldn’t normally get in. It was a chance to enroll early for a couple summer classes and get used to college life and get acclimated with MU.

Now it’s for kids who want to get a head start on college and could’ve easily gotten into MU without FFP.

I’m a proud alum of FFP and the fact that it’s gone is a travesty

I don't think the bolded is entirely accurate.  Sure Marquette admits the students prior to them attending the program (the marketplace pretty much demands they do that), but this program is pushed for those who are on the academic margins. I mean, it is run by the same people who deal with students who have academic issues during the year.

You just can't run the same programs you did decades ago without changing them.
