If they have the "Big Red" from WKU, and the "Orange" from Syracuse, how the heck did this guy leave off Xavier? They've got 2 mascots, 1 a big blue unidentifable thing called the Blue Blob that rivals that of Big Red from WKU. Tandem that up w/ their traditional Musketeer mascot named for another "elite" french fighting force and you've got the Tandom of suck when it comes to mascots.
I've heard of the Rhode Island "Go Nads" before, but just assumed the Nads was a shortened version of something else. How in the hell does that pass by the board of regents at Rhode Island school of Architecture and Interiors or whatever its called. I know Architects and Interior designers/artists can be a little out there sometimes, but you'd think somebody would have put the nix to this prior to inception (Pun intended :)
My Alma Matter (Dayton) has a real winner as well, in Rudy Flyer, basically he's mister potatoe head dressed as a World War era flying Ace. Seriously, he's Mr Potatoe Head w/ a body, kind of funny, but at least identifable.
There's a picture floating out there in cyberspace that I've seen before of an early version of Brutus Buckeye, which was essentiall the Syracuse Orange mascot painted to look like a Buckeye Nut. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to learn the Orange bought the outfit from OSU when they dropped the "men" part of their mascot name in the 90's, dropped in a barrel of Orange paint and called it a day. Talk about mailing it on your mascot.
Always like the Banana Slug mascot, at least the name anyways, and you've got to love Bevo & UGA no matter who you root for.
