Oct. 11, 2008 - LetsGoDU threw a Pep Rally at Spanky's before DU's opening night hockey game against Notre Dame. 260 students showed up, received FREE Bring Back Boone T-Shirts, made posters, ate burgers and supported Boone.
Less than ten days later, Chancellor Coombe announced via an email to students that Boone would not become the Official Mascot of the University of Denver. He did allow that, "DU students and alumni be allowed to use the image as a celebration of that past, to the extent that they may choose."
