It’s Golden Eagles, Hilltoppers
Marquette’s official story on this says:
Marquette will provide detailed information about the first vote after the entire process is completed, including the number of votes cast for each individual nickname option and the number of write-in votes. It was mutually agreed between Marquette and Advantage Research Inc, the independent research firm conducting the poll, that information from the first poll will be released after the second poll has been completed so as not to introduce bias into the second vote.
“Advantage Research Inc. certifies that the two nicknames presented in the second poll received the most votes in the nickname poll conducted from May 24 through June 5, 2005. As mutually agreed upon, the details from the first vote will be held by Advantage Research until the entire voting process is completed,” said Scott Segrin, vice president of operations, Advantage Research Inc.
