William and Mary, known as "The Tribe" since the 1980's, will be changing their school mascot. According to the NCAA, their current feathered logo has to go -- and so they're looking for nominations.
Among the 375 suggestions so far, one suggestion (according to WISN) is an asparagus stalk. Or maybe, as I would suggest, an asparagus "spear."
Could this be a sign of a new foodie mascot trend?
I quote: "The asparagus stalk supporter notes that if served with cheese, the vegetable represents the school colors."
