with poll: Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon says no one working on a mascot and 'it may never happen'
Eagerly waiting for the unveiling of the University of Michigan’s new mascot?
Don’t hold your breath.
Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said no one is working on a mascot and that Michigan may never have one.
Last week in an article on Michigan Today, an online newsletter for Michigan alumni, Brandon said the department is interested in the idea of a mascot. But in email to AnnArbor.com, Brandon said it is not something anyone on his staff is actively working on.
“There are many other priorities at the present time. And it may never happen,” Brandon said in the email. “It is a difficult thing to do well, as we have found out with past efforts in this area.”
Michigan is one of three Big Ten schools without a mascot, along with Illinois and Indiana.
