    Live Mascot Update Coming

    Enough already on the Tech "live mascot" complaints. The man himself will be responding soon...

    Shelby, I will be communicating about progress on Tech XXII soon. Tech traditions are stronger than ever.

    The complaints are valid. It's taking a year to complete.

    Yea. I'm glad he's responding with something other than "Martians," but a year to get a dog requires a pretty substantial explanation.

    I think the only way it is "acceptable" is the administration was taking this time to secure proper breeding stock for Tech XXI. I've said since I was a student that Tech not having a lineage for the live mascot is a bit of a hindrance on the tradition, and securing a new Tech when it is time to retire the current one. Hopefully the "stronger tradition" refers to this. It's not like Tech could sell the litter to alumni and use that money to provide for the mascot program or anything.

    No more complaints? LOL. His first two responses were incoherent, and his third response said he would respond "soon." Tech deserves to be blasted for their incompetent handling of this.

    A year to complete? That's being too kind. It's already been over a year now, and they still appear to be several months away from introducing Tech XXII.

    Considering nobody really knows what is going on, I wouldn't say anyone needs to be blasted. If you KNOW they are just sitting on it, sure. But you don't. You are in the dark, and you are just mad that nobody has told you anything. There is likely a reason that it is taking such a long time.

    It's Tech job to communicate with their stakeholders, and they've done a very poor job of it. A facebook message to announce the retirement? And then nothing for a year except for our president responding with "woof" and "martians?" Yeah, Tech deserves to be blasted for handling this situation so poorly. There's really no excuse.

    Maybe if they weren't so busy pushing our students and alumni around on game day, they would have more time to take care of REAL business.
