Marquette Golden Eagles v. Marquette Hilltoppers
Posted by Christine Hurt

With over 31,000 voters participating, "Golden Eagles" and "Hilltoppers" have emerged as the final two choices in the ongoing Marquette nickname saga.  Now, the Marquette family must vote between these two choices.  Obviously, neither of them are better than "Muskies."  A colleague here explained to me that by giving so many choices in the first round, plus allowing two votes, the university was all but assured that the incumbent name would wind up in the top two choices.  And so it goes.
