Wichita State University is planning another makeover of mascot WuShock, and it’s good to hear there will be no major changes to his looks. The peppy and pugnacious wheat bundle has terrified and mystified opposing teams for decades — there’s no reason to mess with success. But it makes sense to make the Wu experience easier on those inside the costume. “The elongated head makes it particularly difficult for costume wearers to see, and to breathe, and to maintain mobility,” said Ron Kopita, vice president for campus life and university relations.
It’s a good point. A Wu that runs into things, and falls down, isn’t likely to inspire fans.
