Clarion Kicks Off School Year With Boone Coverage

(above) A Special Edition of the Clarion was delivered to Freshmen Dorms last night and Boone received a full page spread

Any hope that University of Denver's "Mascot Controversy" would die over the summer were quickly dashed, as The Clarion, DU's school newspaper, devoted a full page spread to our favorite mascot. The newly updated mascot has already been spotted around campus and attended a DU Pep Rally last night (photo left).

Boone will make his first appearance at a DU hockey game in 31 days as the University of Denver will open the season against the University of Vermont on October 9th. Fans will be able to greet Boone, pose for pictures and be entertained by the "unofficial mascot."

Last year LetsGoDU readers contributed $8,000 to bring Boone back to life, despite Chancellor Coombe's decision to keep the mascot "retired."

I'd like to take a look at the article. I wonder why www.duclarion.com hasn't been updated with any of the new fall articles.

Its the first issue of the year and the staff was up all night getting the newspaper out. Hopefully they will update www.DUclarion.com soon and we can post a link.
