    In the spirit of passing judgement on mascots, why not a ten worst competition? As we have the far and away best mascot, we are able to look down upon the rest of the college sports landscape with pity and uppity arrogance. Here's my list:

    #1 - Herbie/Lil Red. Having an inbred hick for a mascot is nothing to be proud of, son.
    #2 - Pistol Pete - BIG HEAD BIG HEAD BIG HEAD!!!!!!!
    #3 - War Eagle/Tiger/plainsman/whatever. What the hell is Auburn's mascot, again? Maybe if they could make up their mind, I might be able to place them better. Pick one already.
    #4 - Georgia Tech's wasp. Thing looks like some kind of freakish alien.
    #5 - The pachyderm from Alabama. Look, I know you can't make a costume out of a natural event, but please, an elephant? You shouldn't have even tried.
    #6 - Sparky - ASU. Creepy satan figure. Nuff said.
    #7 - Beavers/Gophers/Ducks. C'mon, were prairie dogs and guinea pigs already taken? Weak.
    #8 - Willie the Wildcat. Big head on a guy wearing a football uniform. How original.
    #9 - the Stanford tree - Seriously, a tree? I know you're getting all cerebrial on us, but really? A tree?
    #10 - the OSU Buckeye dude. See Willie the Wildcat reference. Big head in the shape of a chestnut. Fabulous.

    Honorable mention - the Leprechaun at Notre Dumb. Memo to the folks in South Bend, they prefer to be called "Little People".

    Purdue Pete. WTF?

    EDIT:

    And here he is giving blood. No, that's not weird at all.

    Well, at least he's a real person. Unlike the rest, which are fuzzy costumes. I have to give them credit for that, anyway.

    Oh, and I once shared a common area of a BOQ (two private rooms, one living room/kitchen area) for a month or two in ground school with the Kansas Jayhawk (for the record he no longer wore teh Jayhawk costume). He was--without exaggeration--the weirdest little freak dude I've ever known. I can't see that mascot without thinking about that little weirdo.

    Yeah. I kinda forgot about him. He's got a big head, too, doesn't he?

    Truthfully, it's very easy to forget about Purdue.

    How did the Orangeman not make the list? Seriously. A Nerf basketball does not a mascot make.

    DU getting rid of Boone (who was very good) for that Hawk/bird type thing. How exactly does that represent a Pioneer?

    "#6 - Sparky - ASU. Creepy satan figure. Nuff said."

    I thought the same until I read up on how Sparky came to be. Apparently ASU hired a former Disney animator to come up with the image back in the 50s or something. Well, Walt had just fired him so the cartoonist designed Walt's face into Sparky's because he was pissed at Disney. Ya gotta admit that's one hell of a way to exact a little revenge. lol

    what can be worse than the KSU mascot? the thing doesn't even have a full costume, just a giant head, it is like they are buying a mascot a piece at a time.

    The Orange and the Tree suck but I hate that ****ing Leprechaun. Playing NCAA on playstation, that ****er starts dancing and its pretty damn annoying. I always have Notre Dame on my schedule, I hate them with a passion. What was it the Stanford Tree did a few years ago? Was he acting like he was hittin that cheerleader from the back or did he get in a fight with another mascot or what? I remember something happening but not sure what.

    I think the tree was chowing some cheerleader from behind and the Oregon Duck got in a fight and sexually dominated some mascot's head. Maybe the Cougar?

    This can be construed to mean many, many things.

    Really makes me proud to be entering the Pac-12. :lol:

    We'll fit right in. Before Chip won back-to-back national championships, he had the incident when he tried to make Lynn Katoa feel at home in Boulder:

    I've always thought the ND leprechaun guy was a dweeb. And as for that WKU "blob" or whatever it is, how the hell did they come up that?? They have a pretty cool nickname yet somehow have one of the lamest mascots around.

    Most Stanford fans realize how ridiculous the tree is, but feel it's so stupid that it's actually cool. I would give honorable mention to the U of Delaware Blue Hens...I can't think of a mascot in existence that is more puss than the Blue Hens.

    Don't know that any mascot can be more puss than a Beaver.

    It's probably the best to stuff, too.

    Oregon State made the list of stupid mascots, and for good reason:

    Maybe tougher, but in the parlance of the post I quoted, the Beaver is definitely more puss. Nice on the stuffing.
