Massachusetts Wolves

The idea has been brought up with an idea of gender inequality (there are other reasons though). The minuteman is a male character and only represents 50% of the university. It has been discussed in my Sport Management classes and some of the students had been in the study group. They had said that it would be a grey wolve incorporating maroon colors in the ears, eyes, and hair. They seemed to think that the new mascot didnt really resemble the Huskie of UConn, but actually was quite impresive. A decision is expected this summer. I understand that tradition is near and dear to most of us, but I also think that change may be good! Who knows...
Go Umass!
