Denver Boone, the University of Denver's mascot from 1968 to 1998, has been officially banished from the currently mascot-free campus. But Boone's not gone altogether. Today a seven-foot-high replica of Boone was installed on top of the Pioneer, which has been renovating both its interior and exterior this summer, and just unveiled its new deck.

Lori Midson stopped in this afternoon to take a look at the Pioneer, and sent these photos of the new deck -- and its official mascot, Denver Boone.

Uh-oh.  Are the angry, offended hordes - that are legion, according to DU TPTB - going to storm this restaurant and set fire to the offensive Boone? You know, b/c he is sooooooooooooo offensive to so many.

Why is Boone facing away from University Boulevard?  Seems like they got that backwards.
