One lucky bovine may owe his life to glacial retreat patterns, state-border decisions, and his human stewards' fascination with symbol, icon, and pride of place.

The pattern on its other side is shaped like a "U."As we admire this confluence of randomness into fortune for a beast who cannot comprehend his luck (and who, thankfully, if he becomes a MichU mascot, will not comprehend the burgers and franks waved in his direction when he's marched before a cheering, endless crowd -- why can't they play in a "Cow Palace"? Oh well....) -- we should take a moment to remember his more consumable (and, sometimes, consumptive) brethren, whose hides do not merit them such special attention.
