My Vote: the Marquette Muskies
Posted by Christine Hurt

I've been doing a lot of thinking, and even though the Marquette Gold has grown on me, I would like to suggest an alternative:  the Marquette Muskies.  It's alliterative, it's regional, and it is conducive to a mascot.

What is a Muskie you ask?  A muskie is a Wisconsin fish.  In fact, it's the state fish.  I have found three different spellings for muskellonge, muskelonge, and muskellunge, but we'd just say "muskie," the way everyone around here does.  Muskies are large trophy fish who get big enough to eat small mammals.  According to this site, "muskies are vicious predators and tough fighters on the line."  What a great mascot!
