    So, what where/are your mascots in college? And, what would be your ideal mascot? Right now, its a wildcat. The mascot costumes are[/URL] way cool, for a wildcat. (We have two of them) I wish it was something more unique, like a wolverine! There are too many wildcats/tigers/lions/cougars/jaguars/panthers/other cats. They are awesome, but there are too many of them! But ya, what was it? And, you can tell colors or name of school if you'd like.

    The Boilermaker Special, of course. (In case you couldn't tell, it's a locomotive.)

    my college football team is so embarrassing I dare not even post what the mascot is on the site for fear of their awfulness taking down macrumors. but if you must know its a wave, but I will give no further details.

    This guy:


    That's Bully. Bully I achieved a bit of fame. He died after an accident with a bus on campus. There was a huge funeral procession across campus as ROTC cadets carried Bully in a glass coffin. He was buried at the 50 yard line on the football field. The event made Life magazine.

    Edit: Forgot the school colors. Maroon and White!

    Things like this are why I love college sports. The mascots and traditions are awesome. I've always liked the Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech, both the song and the car. The Purdue Boilermaker is pretty cool, as well. I also like the Horned Frogs from TCU. I have always wondered what the Golden Hurricane from Tulsa is. It just sounds...odd.

    One of my other favorite oddities comes from my home state. There is a small Division II school in the delta called Delta State University. The official mascot is the Statesmen. In the 1980s, some students decided they needed a tougher mascot. As a joke, the "Fighting Okra" was suggested. The student body took the idea and ran with it.

    I went to the College World Series in 2007, and the Anteaters were one of the teams there. Everybody loved that mascot. I tried to find a shirt with just the Anteater mascot on it (as opposed to the generic CWS shirt), but they were sold out just about everywhere.

    Undergrad: Maverick(Univ. of Nebraska at Omaha), Rebel (UNLV), and none (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Melbourne Australia).

    Most universities outside the US don't do athletics. Those that do sports go from high school straight to the pros. At least they do in Australia and NZ.
