Oh, not this shit again. Everyone associates Boone with DU whether he's official or not. Any replacement they come up with is just bland and not memorable in any way. This is a continuing case of trying to re-brand an organization so that some overinflated egos can leave their mark on an institution. I'll patiently be waiting for the next underwhelming "New Coke" mascot that the university craps out.
