What the heck is this thing?
Could win a dunk contest
College mascots of course
Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA
Favorite: Big Red (Western Kentucky)
Most hated: Kansas Jayhawk (or Lil Red - seriously that thing is the worst)
Overrated: Oregon Duck
Underrated: Runza Rex (Not a college mascot but there needs to be more dinosaurs) also a fan of Ramblin' Wreck the car. Not sure if either vote counts.
Twitter: @mikejschaefer Email: email@example.com
Favorite: Always kind of liked Ralphie. Here's why: there was always that little bit of danger -- would he do what the handlers want him to? Would he try to run away, trample one of the guys in the cowboy hats? I like my mascots with a little bit of danger.
Most Hated: Willie the Wildcat. Man does he suck. Half man, half cat. Full stupid.
Overrated: The USC Trojan/Chief Osceola/Notre Dame Leprechaun. All a bunch of big 'meh' for me.
Underrated: Keggy, the unofficial Dartmouth mascot. (pictured below)
What the heck is this thing?: The Stanford Tree, Western Kentucky mascot, Sammy the Banana Slug (UC Santa Cruz) and Brutus the Buckeye all get votes here.
Could win a dunk contest: Pistol Pete, Oklahoma State. He's borderline terrifying up close, but actually fairly tall.
Favorite: Lil' Red (My niece who was born and raised in Colorado met Lil' Red for the first time when she was 8, and then became a HUGE Husker fan. She'll be walking on to the Softball team next year. Fingers crossed.)
Most Hated: The Pelican, or Sebastion, or whatever it is from Miami. That thing was a biotch for us in the 80s/90s.
Overrated: Any tiger. Looks cool, but they are in a cage. They will never be let out on the field. And whatever the hell that 'tree' thing is at Stanford. Can't stand that 'crazy' band crap from schools.
Underrated: Purdue: Love the golf cart/train they roll out. War Eagle at Auburn. That is effing cool.
What the heck is this thing: K-State. Worst video in the history of college football.
Could win a dunk contest: Joe Lunardi
Tree? A TREE???? What the....
Best: Fat Herbie
Worst: Buff Herbie
Most Inflatable: Lil' Red
Next time you guys see Lil Red, check out his hands. They're filthy.
Favorite: Old Herbie when he wore the overalls.
Most Hated: Rowdy, the Dallas Cowboys mascot. I wrote him a letter when I was a boy and I actually got a standard "he's too busy to reply" kind of thing. He's a mascot for crying out loud!
Overrated: Bevo and Ralphie. It's cool but they crap everywhere.
Underrated: RIP Colonel Reb, you racist SOB.
What the heck is this thing? Brutus the Buckeye.
Could win a dunk contest: Monte Bear
A boy, a Twitter page, and the aspiration that you follow him. It's what this country was founded upon.
Fav - Hate to say it, but prob the Seminoles
Most Hated - Lil Red. Quite embarrassing really. I feel silly even saying the name.
Overrated - Kansas Jayhawk
Underrated- Umass Minutemen
What the...- Syracuse Orangeman or Orange. There are plenty others too (Tulane Green Wave)
I've always generally been underwhelmed by live mascots. Went to Baylor a few moons ago, went to see the bear in the middle of campus. That thing looked miserable, just sitting there not really doing anything.
Huh, didnt know they had a live bear. So what, they have a bear exhibit of sorts?

Yeah, it was this weird cave looking cage thing in the middle of campus. It was about 80 degrees that day in Waco and the bear looked like there were about a billion other places he would have rather been.
With his family, eating a salmon, mauling the president of the university...
