|(above) If the Mascot Task Force is looking for a fresh ideas, "Copper Coombe," the exclusive excellence mascot|
That pesky basketball blogger, Brendon Loy, keeps asking questions that nobody in Coombe's Kingdom wants to answer.
And we have a few questions of our own:
- What are the qualifications of the Mascot Task Force Committee to make such a momentous decision?
- Coombe is rumored to be stepping down in 2014. Is the administration rushing to push this through before he departs?
- What other universities besides DU, allows its Chancellors to continually change the school's mascots on a whim without any input from alums & students? Ritchie retroactively changing the mascot in 1998. Coombe deciding in 2008 that Boone wouldn't be mascot despite overwhelming student popularity [87% in Clarion poll]. And now this "hand picked" Task Force that's stacked with multiculturalist allies [Provost Gregg Kvistad & his cronies].
- Finally, isn't the Red-Tailed Hawk the "official mascot" of DU as decided by the Board of Trustees in 1998? If the BOT didn't eliminate Ruckus by vote; whats the problem? Boone isn't the school mascot, the Red-Tailed Hawk is.
