+ 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.
"Three human beings with a badge are watching another human being killing somebody. And instead of saying, 'OK, this is my duty as a human being,' the duty was more toward not interfering with the other officer, saying, 'We are a clan. We stick together no matter what.'"

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.
