    There is nothing to complain about at the moment, so why not bring up mascots... I finally accepted Gunston is never coming back. I know a lot of people thought it was a stupid Mascot, but I thought it was awesome to have something unique.

    Does anyone want to see Gunston make an appearance at homecoming?

    This video cracks me up.

    FAIRFAX, Va. –Fans attending EagleBank Arena's exciting lineup this fall — from George Mason University's men's and women's basketball teams, to Cirque du Soleil and Fall Out Boy — will enjoy an unprecedented wireless experience, thanks to a newly deployed, robust wireless network that provides unmatched streaming, sharing and voice connectivity throughout the 10,000-seat arena.

    "As a result of feedback from our students and fans, we identified an opportunity with Mobilitie to provide an unparalleled wireless experience at EagleBank Arena," Director of Athletics Brad Edwards said. "We feel this partnership with Mobilitie will elevate the fan experience to a higher level, providing our fans the ability to stay connected and capture and share every moment in real time."

    "We are thrilled to partner with Mason, an institution known for demanding the best in academics, athletics and in the facilities that support both," said Christos Karmis, president of Mobilitie. "With an impressive schedule of upcoming events at EagleBank, now is the most exciting time for this best-in-class network to come online."

    If we count the combined surface area of 10,000 phones, I bet that gives us the largest video board in the A10. :cigar:

    I wish they had redesigned Gunston instead of eliminating him. My profile picture is what Gunston would look like if he stole The Patriot's outfit.

    Gunston literally scared children and made them cry. But so does Jollay...

    Yeah. That's a monstrosity! Why they felt the need to disgrace such a landmark, I'll never know.

    This one is way creepier than the original.

    Some new outfits for the original and a makeover might have worked.

    The patriot is just as scary to kids. You're not going to please everyone. I'd have gone with originality and unique over standard blah

    On another note - my youngest son plays football with Deangelo Hall's son.

    And Gunston was a creepy disaster.

    Christ, I agree with Cabrera on a lot of issues but even I'm sick of getting a novel of an email every time he disagrees with a Trump decision.

    I disagree. This particular decision has an impact on more than a few Mason students. Their faculty and fellow students care about their welfare and the president of the university needs to inform the community of the steps being taken in support of these student who now face uncertain futures.

    A one-page email is certainly appropriate. By my count, including this one, I've gotten 7 general emails from Cabrera in the 8 months since Trump was inaugurated. Four of those was to announce the deaths of Roger Wilkins, George Johnson, Charles Cogan (a Va legislator who supported Mason), and a conflict resolution grad student who was killed by a suicide bomber in Afganistan. I'm guessing that Cabrera disagrees with more than 3 things that Trump has done since January!
