After returning from summer break, the students of Western Michigan University were shocked by the change in appearance of their beloved mascot, Buster Bronco. Buster went from a lovable goofball to a roid raging bronco. This infuriated some students enough to start a Change.org petition to bring back the old Buster.
"Buster Bronco is an icon. A fun loving WMU goofball. At the sidelines of a football or basketball game, or out in the community, Buster is Kalamazoo’s favorite mascot. But Western Michigan University has changed him, “updated” him to be more lean and athletic. In the process, we’ve lost the very heart and soul of who Buster is. What is wrong with the Buster we’ve had? He’s classic and has a unique look for the university that’s been around for years.
Let’s bring the Buster we know and love back.
Fight on fight on for Buster!?" (Change.org)
Students didn't take on thousands of dollars of crippling debt that will haunt them throughout their 20s and 30s just so some liberal college administrator could buy a new juiced-up mascot costume. Keep fighting the good fight!
