Lost In All Of The March Madness Hysteria Is The Fact That Wichita State's Mascot Is A Disgusting Cannibal

Yooooo.  How did we let this slide, y'all?  Are we too into the "Cinderella" story to look over the fact that this bushel of wheat is engaging in cannibalism all up in our faces?

I know mascots are supposed to be a little wonky and are basically there for the kids, but we crossed several lines here.  Call me crazy, but I don't think many kids out there see a jacked piece of wheat and think, "Damn, I NEED to get me a stuffed animal of that!"  Nah.  They're probably confused and very likely scared.  All it takes is one kid to do the "Why does that wheat man have a piece of wheat in his mo.....oh my god" math and this whole thing is blown out of control.  

I guess that's what happens when you go on 100 game win streaks and still have no one in the country know where your school is located.  You can get a little loose in the mascot realm.  Throw some cannibalism in there.  Plop a penis on the nose.  See if anyone cares.
