Gunston is done. Now what?

George Mason has officially closed the door on Gunston the mascot. has a short video stating he is "graduating" and to check back tomorrow for more details. So what exactly are the plans for Mason's new mascot? Dare I say an actual Patriot or Patriot-like character? Really I wouldn't mind seeing a contest where the student body was polled and ideas could be submitted, but it seems that something is already made up and will be revealed Monday the 17th at the first home game.

UPDATE: 11/11/08
Check out the end of this video Mason has put out. Apparently this creature pictured is going to be the mascot going around doing all the community stuff, not the athletic mascot. Mason just can't get enough of furry green guys can they? Not impressed. I am still scared for Monday.

I guess I will have to find the deleted scenes to watch the part where they executed Gunston, Old Yeller style.

Man, the "New" Gunston looks like a drag queen! What's with the makeup? Leave the drag queen look to the professionals.

I can only hope the new mascot is going to be cool, as I'm disappointed that we got rid of Gunston AND changed the way he looks for the community.

My friends and I have our personal choice, Stubby the Star. He's the nautical star with the short left arm on the mason logo.
