February 24, 2014

KTVU-CHANNEL 2 -- San Francisco State’s purple alligator mascot may soon go the way of the Stanford Indian if the university president has his way, according to a recently published interview. Talking with a reporter from the school’s Xpress newspaper, President Leslie E. Wong said he would like to replace the Gator with a more sports-oriented mascot. It’s all part of Wong’s remaking of the school athletic program. Recently, the SF State gym was upgraded in a $2.1 million renovation project.
