Ace Purple was created in the late 1960s in the image of a turn-of-the-century riverboat gambler, representing Evansville’s location on the banks of the Ohio River.
He also brandished a club with a spike on one end and carried a gun, and his facial features included a sneer. In 1977 Ace Purple went through an update as UE moved to Division-1 in athletics and with that came another change to Ace Purple as a more likeable character who was cunning, daring, quick wit and had shrewd judgment and those are the current characteristics of Ace Purple.
As the University enters a new era with the move into a new state of the art basketball arena, it appears an appropriate time for Ace Purple to receive a makeover. We need your help in telling us what you like and dislike about the current Ace Purple and what you’d like to see if Ace were to receive a makeover.
