It was all but expected after that creature appeared at the first Georgia Southern Eagles home game of the season — we’d have our “Old” Gus back at some point.
Well, the powers that be didn’t make us wait long, bringing back the GS mascot in his original not bug-eyed and square-headed glory:

In one of the strangest (and honestly the most entertaining) sagas in school history, we end up with what we had all along. Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.
Americans embraced Coca-Cola like never before when it was temporarily taken from them, and Georgia Southern fans will not look upon their mascot quite the same again either.
Kudos to the admins for listening to the people. Long live Gus!
