Student Body Government passes bill 41-0 to put making the Kingfisher the new Illinois mascot on the student ballot next month
What's the relationship between a Kingfisher and Illinois? As far as my Googling skills can tell, there are no species of Kingfisher native to the state, but may migrate through.
And nothing looks dumber in my eyes than someone in a bird costume dancing around on the sidelines. Not even Purdue Pete.
Edit--apparently it is native to the state (stupid Google skills), and according to this article it is orange and blue. Although I've not seen a picture of one that has orange in it.
So, we'll have a mascot with a 3 foot sharp and pointy beak - that will go over well. hope our insurance is up to date. No trampoline dunks for this guy.
