Marquette Scheduled to Embarrass Itself Again Tomorrow

Tomorrow, the Marquette University Board of Fatuousness Trustees will announce the two most popular nicknames as revealed by their stakeholder poll. Unless they disapprove of the results.

Since one of the possible names polled was the "Golden Knights" - a mascot that conjures imagery of warlike white European Christians who, during the Crusades, killed some of the "browner peoples of the earth" - my prediction is that they will ignore the poll and offer two brand new names.

My money's on the "Burnt Umber Porcupines" and the "Ashen Gender Feminists".
