DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK: GUNSTON STAYS

It's times like these that remind us why we run this blog...

So I'm looking through the Washington Post today when I realize The Realests have been cited by another major media outlet. Shown here (third post from the top... BTW, we love how we are listed after NPR as if we are a legit news source...), the blog partially credits us with the firestorm created about Gunston's ouster with this blog entry.

But first, a quick refresher. Associate Athletic Director Andy Ruge on Gunston in June:

"We need to develop a mascot with a strong image, more of an immediate connection with George Mason, something our community would be proud to have."

"It would be nice if a freshman could see him and go, 'Hey, that's our mascot' instead of going 'What's that?' "

Well, just 3 months after announcing he would no longer be the "primary mascot", GMU has given in to the fans' demands. From University spokesman Dan Walsch:

"It's is here to stay, and we're looking to give Gunston a makeover. That'll be the only change, but the decision of the university is that he is very much here to stay. When the spotlight went on the university in the Final Four we thought the feelings Gunston helped generate were positive. We thought the character did a good job of being fun and representing the school, and we thought he was not only worth keeping but enhancing his look and if anything making him more visible...The general feeling from what I hear is that Gunston is very positively received, that people like him and it's good that we're keeping him."

We want to thank all our readers.

As we've said from the beginning: This isn't just a blog, it's a movement.

Of course, this isn't over. First, we want this ass clown Ruge to step down immediately (direct hate mail here).

Second, let's hope Gunston holds a presser and pulls a Mike James, saying he has been treated like a cheap prostitute.

Join us in celebration by becoming Gunston's friend on Facebook.

U guys can't be serious! Your taking pride in a movement to keep this hated green furry blob. He is an embarrassment.

How long have you followed GMU basketball? How about GMU Sports? Did you know we had a basketball team before last year?

Get REAL, get a clue. Gunston must go. He is an embarrassment and provided not a single positive moment during our tournament run. Who did? Coach L, Jai, Tony, Lamar, Folarin, Gabe, Will, Sammy, etc. etc.

In fact, he gave everyone something to hold onto as a negative blemish during one of the greatest run in all of sports.

When GMU doesn't go to the Final Four where will you be? You guys are joke and thanks to you so is our University!

A) Andy Ruge isn't the problem, its the "I don't want to ruffle anyone's feathers" Administration that is in place.

B) Facebook = joke.

C) Gunston = Joke

D) Our University makes claims yet doesn't want to show/share the data that was used to make the decision?

E) Not changing mascots = setting Mason back YEARS.

Andy Ruge an ass clown??! You are such a dope. Have you ever met Ruge? Talked with him.

You, my dear internet dope, are the only ass clown in these parts. Nice headband jackass.

Are you guys Cowboy, Bulls, and Yankees fans as well??? So, when GMU, in all likelihood, does not make the Final Four this year, will you still be around?? I doubt it. You guys aren't real fans. You're just posers. Real fans know Gunston is a joke and just a symbol of a PC laced administration. Ever heard of George Evans or Kenny Sanders, yea, I didn't think so.
