Can You Name The College Mascot?
<![CDATA[Thanksgiving time means football and lots of it. I’m a Rice Owl, a pretty standard mascot. Maybe your school mascot is one of the top twelve most common: eagles, tigers, bulldogs, panthers, knights, lions, bears, hawks, cougars, pioneers, warriors, or wildcats. Here are some odd, interesting, and unique college mascots. (It might be fun to see how many of these your college sports fans know.) Color Mascots Purple Aces – U of Evansville Crimson Tide – Alabama Maroons – Chicago Big Green – Dartmouth Big Blues – Bluefield State Big Red – Cornell & Denison Fightin’ Religious Figures Battling Bishops – Ohio Wesleyan Cecil the Crusader – North Greenville Hustlin’ Quakers – Earlham Demon Deacons – Wake Forest Fighting Christians — Elon Not So Fierce Mingus (the costumed jazz cat) – Berklee School of Music Banana Slug – UC Santa Cruz Fighting Blue Hens – Delaware Diplomats – Franklin & Marshal Lord Jeffs — Amherst Chanticleers – Coastal Carolina Jumbo the Elephant — Tufts Mythical Creatures Mario the Magnificent Dragon – Drexel Billikens – St. Louis Gorlocks – Webster Golden Griffins – Canisius Just Different Artie the Fighting Artichoke – Scottsdale Community College Fighting Okra – Delta State Fighting Pickle – U.

I always thought the Tulane Green Wave and the UTEP Miners were rather odd.
