Re: Get 49er Donors Back
Yes, because our university was founded in 1949 we are 49ers. Take away Pete and bring back 49ers. The logo should be a beach scene with a male and female surfer holding a surfboard with a big LB 1949 on it.
100% This!!!! I know it's "Pete or Bust" with a lot of this for people, I can't get that wrapped around the axel about a cartoon character, but the 49er nickname is completely different for me. Really disingenuous how the school's systematically replaced that name, which wasn't part of the conversations about issues specific to the mascot. Other teams use 76ers and even 86ers as a nicknames because of significance specific to a founding date, the same impetus behind us being the 49ers.
Definitely bring back the 49ers name. They don't even have to make a big deal of it. Just do it.
Making up with Dan Smith wouldn't hurt, either.
And, of course, WIN. Bringing in Tyler for WVB was a nice first step.
Embrace tradition. Bring back Prospector Pete...
Sad they caved in and fired him... poor decision in my opinion.
Not sure there are many more passionate than you.
Thanks for all you do.
What do you think the administration (athletic or academic) could do to get old donors back, or to attract new donors to support Long Beach State Athletics and the school in general? This is a serious question that has been posed to me by a couple of people and I am looking to put some suggestions together to give to the administration! Tell me what you think, and I will try to get your ideas to the right people. Please try to make your suggestions in some sort of a positive manner, rather than just trying to take shots at people. If you are on this board, I am guessing that you are as passionate about Long Beach State as I am. I have been asked for some ideas, and I am passing this request on to all of you! I have already give my 2 cents on about 5 items...
