Searching for GOLD finally pays off

Significant hours have been spent searching the newspapers and media outlets of this country for articles this week on the Marquette Gold nickname change. Most of them have been linked to our blog. What has been non-existant is an article in favor of the name change. Well look no further, one has been found in the OshKosh Northwestern by John Casper.

To read John's article "Gold best ties in Marquette's past with the present" click here.

Of course, the same newspaper has a contridictory article as well by John Archibald. Click here to read his "MU abandons it's principles by choosing Gold".

It's not Osh Kosh. It's Oshkosh.

like it or not, Casper's column makes a number of valid, rational points. Well done

Casper does have some solid points, as do many of the articles opposed to the new name / the process taken to achieve new name.
