    I agree, time to get rid of that leprachaun and the Fighting Irish name. I'm a peaceful Irishman.

    Clothing. That is why the Redskins are fighting so hard to keep their name because they would lose money on the Redskins name(including retro uniforms)

    But at the same time, if I was offended by eagles because it was disrespectful to name a team after a bird that is nearly extinct, does that mean the Philadelphia Eagles and all HS teams should change their names? There needs to be a line drawn somewhere, and I dont find any of these names offensive.

    4. How about that Dwayne Wade?

The connection can only really exist at the level of mascot. There is no inherent relationship between "warrior" and Native American iconography.

    Why not go with a name that goes with the school's identity or history?

    Marquette Missionaries
    Marquette Explorers
    Marquette Joliets
    Marquette Catholics
    Marquette Fighting Jesuits

    The key word is "reasonable".

    I remember that triple double. If I recall, Al beat the Wildcats a couple of times too.

    Didn't know Mariemont got a new field. I'm assuming you went to IH - when did you graduate?
