The Texas Longhorns won’t be making a mascot change anytime soon.

Judging from some recent comments from the man in charge, I wouldn’t anticipate a change anytime soon.
“We take the safety very seriously, but we’re going to continue to have Bevo as our mascot,” University of Texas President Gregory L. Fenves told the Austin American-Statesman on Tuesday.
I love this decision from Fenves. Forget the haters, and keep the awesome mascot. I’m also not against letting him run wild a bit.
You know what would make teams really scared of the Longhorns? If Bevo were just running all over the field crushing people. (RELATED: PETA Wants Live Animals Banned From Football After Sugar Bowl Mascot Mishap)
That would really give people a moment of hesitation.
You want to see some real chaos, then cut this big boy loose during the fourth quarter when the other team is driving.
Things will go from zero to 100 real quick. In the meantime, major props to Texas for not giving in, and riding with their massive steer. That’s what America is all about.
