    i don't remember seeing anything like this in '97... i wonder when the quality of Champs went downhill...

    The last one of those graduated in Spring 96. Championship cheerleader turned mascot --a true baller. Stuck around at Tech for grad school (Bio-Med, if I recall correctly), but didn't want mascoting to interfere with his studies.

    The one after him was a chubby nerd with socialist leanings and a mild to moderate drinking problem (if I recall correctly).

    There was a picture of the former Champ suit in the Union Board office. When I suggested we should get back to that suit -- it may have been cartoonish, but at least it was unique -- I was quickly shushed and advised not to speak of it again.
    We had similar experiences in college it seems Champ.

    In fact, I remember going through yearbooks to find images of past Champs. I believe in the 70's there was a brown Champ costume. The one common thing Champ has had since his inception is a big head and some jowls. Queue the DR Reneau jokes.

    I may be remembering this wrong, but I remember them making a very big deal about a new mascot called "Champ" at one of the football games. It seems to me that the mascot dog before that had a different name (that would be early 80s).
