You may be right, I'm not sure. I re-read the article and saw this line:

Chancellor Robert Coombe in March announced that Boone will not be considered by a steering committee that has identified an elk, a jackalope and a mountaineer as finalists for a new mascot.
So now I'm confused. As long we're still called the DU Pioneers, I'm fine. If we become the DU Elk, etc, I will be pretty upset. If it's purely a mascot thing, they can trot Dinger out there for all I care. But the name is pretty important to me.
