    ASU is looking to change its mascot from the Indians.  We want to know what you think it should be changed to? We've asked you to vote in our non-binding poll - Now send us your comments - Read what others are saying!

JONESBORO, AR - ASU fans have less than three weeks remaining to submit ideas for the name of the university's new mascot.  More than 900 names have been submitted so far, but more ideas are welcomed and in fact, encouraged, according to ASU-Jonesboro Chancellor Dr. Robert Potts. 

The deadline for submission is midnight on October 31.

To submit a name or names, persons may visit the Web site http://www.astate.edu/mascot/suggestions.php or access "Mascot Information from the ASU home page, http://www.astate.edu.  The list of suggested names submitted so far is contained on the Mascot Information page.

Beginning November 1, nine major constituent groups will begin reviewing the lists.  Each will choose 8 to 12 favorites for further consideration; the Mascot Selection Steering Committee will then review the narrowed list.

The new name and mascot is expected to be announced next spring and sports teams would compete under the new imagery, beginning in the fall of 2008.
