They spent a ton of money to get Woody developed and copywrited.

Oh no. Might as well painted a Grotto pizza out there and charged them
I've noticed JMU and Nova fans don't seem to like Rocco, this is a good thing..

I told Ralph a while back and I'll share with all of you now....

Udee is the recognized current school logo. ALL the items must have only the images supplied by the University. The vendors pay a licensee fee of some sort to sell the stuff.

Our boy Dick is a "vintage" logo which has been archived by UD. If manufacturer's wish to use Dick they must also pay still an additional fee to do so.

Kudos to Ralph for finding a few shirts still available but for the most part I was told that there is zero demand from the current students and not hardly any either from the alumni so Dick has become a collector's item of sorts.

I shared my disappointment with my grandson about having a wimpy parakeet for a mascot. The 12 year old replied " It's a cool logo, just look at the Oregon stupid duck and everyone loves it. "

Good Point !

UD is no joke with that. Our fraternity used to line up on the bleachers where the players come out in bright yellow tshirts (we were in the Sports Illustrated picture when they were celebrating the fifty teams in fifty states piece) that read "Drink Beer, Go Big Blue" with YoUDee on the back. We did new ones each year. Sometimes it was just the number 1 sign but mostly it was his likeness playing pong or doing keg stands. We weren't selling them or trying to make money off them. The university shut that right down and threatened legal action if we didn't stop. Needless to say we did...but I still got mine 8)

Yeah, but he is only 12 years old and we all know that YoUDee has great appeal with children. Will he still feel that way when he is college age and older?

Does anyone have a picture? I just can't imagine the cartoon image on the field.
