I agree. However, I also think the old one was pretty good. So I don't know why they even wanted a new one.

Yeah, the original was better for sure.

Remember Mr. Topper? Something like that? Guy in red and white stripes on stilts? 70s or early 80s pre big red. I googled the shitt out of it and couldn't find a pic anywhere. I bet WKUYG has a photo in his archives.

I also spent a lot of time trying to find a picture of Mr. Topper. Didnt he have a top hat and monocle situation going on?

I for one like the red towel and think if anything take the wku lettering away and have the red towel be synonymous with our brand, like people see a hand waving a red towel and go "Oh! That's WKU".

Only other thing i can think of is going the Washington State route and make wku into wordart that resembles a hill, where the K is the tallest and the w and u gently slope.

If we're doing bad mascots, the discussion ends with this dude:

I lost a ton of my pictures when a hard drive I put them on when dead but here's a black and white one or Mr Hilltopper

Big Red/Mr Hilltopper are mascots. Red Towel is a logo/symbol.

Red Towel is cool. I'd rather have that then make Big Red the primary symbol of athletics.
