Re: 49er Name is Embedded Like the Taliban
Orange Slices Conoley wants elementary school approach to athletics. Everybody wins and cutesy mascots
A disgrace to college
all of our teams were called 4ers except the woman's volleyball team and the women's tennis team and of course the dirtbags and even then they were called the 49er dirtbags ------------
How many people actually enjoy having a shark as mascot. Beach over 49er Eventually those will change because non of us accept them
they don't think
What were they thinking.

What else is still '49er' on campus? I think some of the menu items at the Nugget had the 49er name in them; the school newspaper is the 'Daily Forty-Niner' yet the sports teams are the Long Beach State Beach.
Failed experiment. Go back to the 49ers for sports. Keep 'Dirtbags'. Refer to the team as 'The Beach' only for funzies...well I'm not in charge but my donations are squarely tucked in my bank account waiting for the ill-advised changes to be reversed.
At least Elbee seems to be relegated to a life of a gender neutral chatbot.
