Meet Husky Hysteria

Mitch's Misfits will be undergoing a name change starting in the 2006-2007 hockey season. In an attempt to make it easier for marketing, there will be one joint name for all student supporters of Tech Athletics. The name "Husky Hysteria" will grow to be even more recognizable around campus than "Mitch's Misfits" currently is. This move will allow the Michigan Tech Athletic Department and their marketing people to make shirts and other giveaway items for every sport, instead of individual giveaways for this sport, something else for that sport, etc. In the long run, this will save the athletic department money, as well as the Husky Hockey student section currently known as Mitch's Misfits, as they will no longer have to buy their own shirts.

Current president of Mitch's Misfits, Bethlyn McCallum says, "It's going to be difficult at first... especially knowing all the time, money, and work put into what is today known as 'Mitch's Misfits', but it the long run, it's definitely for the best. The athletic department footing the bill will make it much easier as well. This move has my full support."

Negotations have started, and have succeeded, to keep the Mitch's Misfits logo of the rabid husky as the Husky Hysteria logo.

This year will be the transitional year. This is a year in which the student section will be both Mitch's Misfits and Husky Hysteria, as "Mitch's Misfits" will be phased out completely by the start of offseason 2007.

If anyone has any questions on this name changed, they are encouraged to drop me an email or post a comment.

You're right, it will take some getting used to. Not sure I like the new name, but it will probably grow on me.

LOL, did you write that article and quote yourself, or did someone else write it?

I am glad that they will keep Mitch's Misfits, I think it has a nice ring to it.

Haha... You caught me, RWD. I just made it up as I was typing it. It's the truth though! There might be more developments coming soon with the name thing... I should know more by next week...

Not like you really care... You just wanna make fun of me. =)

Liar! There's no developments listed on here! Way to keep me hanging.

I was just wondering if you'd been interviewed by your student newspaper or something, and then copied it here. Since you're a Big Deal on Campus and all, getting the exclusive interviews!

Dangit, RWD. You're not patient enough! I'm meeting with Suzanne, Tech's AD, tomorrow morning at 9. We're meeting about an upcoming tailgater, but I'm going to get the whole name situation straightened out then. I hope.

And quit making fun of me for interviewing myself! It can't be much worse than interviewing a gong, no? =P
