Marquette graduate Bob Wolfley, writer for the Journal-Sentinel also has chimed in with his thoughts on the GOLD. More of the same, but again nails his target. Click here for a Golden Dose of Wolfley.
Don Walker of the Journal Sentinel writes that both Father Wild and John Bergstrom (Board of Trustees) wanted Warriors but it carried too much baggage. Apparently the Indian tribes of Wisconsin have total exclusivity now on what a warrior is....who knew. They continue to site the line that alums and fans cannot separate the imagery of Indians with Warriors. This seems odd since the Philadelphia / Golden State Warriors was also originally based on Indian imagery and no one ever associates Indians with that basketball team or their logo.
