FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Moby Arena will have more than just a brand new $1 million videoboard on
Thursday night at the volleyball match.
The new and improved CAM the Ram will make an appearance as well, sporting his newly redesigned
The new CAM - an acronym for one of CSU's former names, Colorado Agricultural & Mechanical College
- has lost the bulky biceps and the cartoonish features, and models more of what a real ram looks like.
He now wears No. 70 on his jerseys, to signify the year that the university was established, 1870.
Using a mascot mark that was created by Kyle Stopperan, a 2001 CSU graduate, CAM was literally
designed from pictures of the real ram that appears at the football games, as well as pictures of wild
rams. Once the mark was created, it was sent to the company that created the mascot. CAM's furry
costume is about as close to the color of real rams as possible. Other small details that were taken into
consideration when designing the mark include the white around his nose, and the notch in his hooves.
The new mascot mark is what will now appear on CSU apparel, and the inspiration for new CSU ram
stuffed animals. Merchandise featuring the new CAM the Ram will only be available at the Colorado
State Bookstore, which is located in the Lory Student Center on campus.
