Marquette Warrior: Marquette Nickname Vote

Marquette Nickname Vote

As per Brigid O’Brien, of the office of Public Affairs at Marquette:

As of about noon last Friday, 20,097 votes had been cast for a new Marquette nickname.

In the first round of voting, 31,501 people cast votes.

The voting will continue until 9:00 p.m. this Friday night.

It is difficult to know whether this is “a few” or “about the expected number.” During the first round, a lot of people voted at the last minute. It is unclear whether that will happen this time.

Our position is that refusing to vote sends the right message: that “Warriors” is the best nickname, and that anything else is really unacceptable. But a fair number of people who would prefer Warriors have some clear favorite as between the final two.
