I'm so confused by this. When did it become taboo for the mascots to playfully tackle each other and such? Why on earth is this a big deal?Bobcats athletics spokesman Jason Corriher released a statement calling the actions "extremely poor judgment and sportsmanship" and saying that the university regrets the negative effect they may have on the relationship between the two schools.
Frankly, mascots are for entertainment. It doesn't seem this guy had any intent to cause harm to the person in the costume, so why is this getting any play?
I'm honestly, totally confused by this.
