2,550 of you voted, and it would seem that most of the campus shares in my good taste, as demonstrated by the 60% majority garnered by the winning mascot:
While I applaud the selection, I am a bit disappointed to read that I won’t be able to purchase fan gear with the new logo until next fall. I had read somewhere that one of the objectives in holding the vote in December was to get a consensus before the bookstore placed its January order. I assumed that meant I’d be seeing New Grit on the racks by February or perhaps March at the latest.
Maybe the folks who are in charge of these things can rush some stuff into production to take advantage of the excitement. I’ve got a neighbor who could download New Grit and have a tee-shirt, hoodie (or almost anything else) ready in a couple of days. Why the delay?
