Meatball Club? What are you talking about Grizz? It looks like donuts and fruit to me. Fork up $1000 a year and you can have that view for both football and basketball. Wayne Hanby

I have no problem with the stupid thing as a cartoonish mascot (if little kids like it, super), but there is no reason to stick the freaking mascot on everything. Indeed, I'm having trouble thinking of another school that features a mascot as prominently as does the UD. It looks like something a middle school would/should have, not a Research 1 institution of higher education.

There isn't a duck in sight on the football field, the basketball court, and the vast majority of their athletic uniforms (a few, goofy football helmets being the exception).

Just about every school has a mascot. Penn State has some guy dressed up like a lion; Pitt a panther; Clemson a tiger, ND an ugly Irish stereotype, Syracuse, some guy who looks like a Cheeto, etc. Some, like LSU, Tennessee and Georgia have both mascots (in the sense they have some poor soul in a suit) and a real-live version as well (assuming LSU has replaced Mike VII, RIP). Again, only Delaware, as far as I am aware, uses the cartoon mascot as an actual symbol of the school and/or its teams. I know the new AD has bigger fish to fry - like re-molding a once-flagship athletic team into one that could finish in the upper-division of the Northeast Conference (at least occasionally) - but this would seem like low-hanging fruit.

Since 'Dick Chicken' is pugilistic in nature, you will never, EVER see him embraced by the current admin. As for the "he doesn't sell" bs, just try it. Make him avail on a golf polo at the 5/10-- and don't force them to sell it for $69-- and see how many fly off the shelves. Stupid ppl now run a former great place. Sucks.

So right, can't have the mascot connected with you know what. Surprised they haven't changed it all together. Delaware Blue Hens renowned for their friendly, fun loving nature. Being of ethnic Irish heritage, I am still waiting for Notre Dame to stop insulting us with ugly stereotype.

Toxic masculinity must be opposed even when it involves a female chicken.

In fairness to Mr. Zone, there were some cartoon ducks on display in Eugene yesterday. Seemed to have something to do with a cducks against cancer thing. It looked as goofy on their stuff as it does on ours. My guess is that someone told our new AD that " people love youdee!" Without actually asking any people over 12.

I would never wear anything with Udee on it, even a pair of socks or worse, skivvies.

That's the spirit! Who's up for a You Dee effigy burning on Saturday? Could be festive, and it would send a powerful message (that we're probably all unhinged, among other things) to the powers that be. LOL.

YouDee is a great mascot that provides some originality. I know the student athletes loving having a mascot they can call theirs and not something generic.
