no competition between those two. The AFA Falcon should be included and would get some consideration, but Ralphie still wins.
I'm pretty sure the list goes like this:
2. Mach 1 (AFA - gyrefalcon)
3. Blaster the Burro (Mines)
4. Rowdy the Roadrunner (Metro State)
5. Wolfie the Thunderwolf (CSU Pueblo)
6. Boomer the Mountain Lion (UCCS)
7. Milo the Lynx (CU Denver)
8. Klawz the Bear (UNC)
9. Skyler the Skyhawk (Fort Lewis)
11. Maverick (Mesa State - it's a bull)
12. Grizzlies (Adams State)
13. Cam the ewe
Who the hell named the Mountain Lion Boomer?
It is UCCS btw.
Did they finally, fully, 100% embrace UCCS? (What it should be, IMO - the CU - Colorado Springs bit always felt wrong.)
And "Boomer" is a silly name, but most mascot names are a little silly.
Yes, definitely UCCS now. It does make it easier to say, but it just doesn't match the other campuses. The campus is growing like crazy though so who am I to judge.
I just don't like the Boomer thing because it just brings up memories of the land thieves in our previous conference. The name Boomer really has no place in this state, but again, who am I to judge.
Buffy is 100% correct. Boomer needs a new name. The mountain lions new name is hereby Bob.
Edited the original post to UCCS.
Tried to find out if there was a reasonable story for the name "Boomer" - google is worthless sometimes, even for things as recent as 2003 when "Boomer" was first introduced to the regents.
who gives a **** about other mascots... just go vote!!!
Sad news from LSU where Mike the Tiger will be euthanized due to cancer.
As of last week, CMU (Colorado Mesa) has a live, non-drugged, bull at their games. And Blaster is pathetic.
Not even freakn close. Ralphie is the best damn mascot in the country.
The thread title doesn't need an ending to the sentence. It doesn't matter what comes after the ellipsis; the answer is "Ralphie".
Who gives a ****?
Even as a fan of another team I have to say that it's Ralphie and it's not a particularly close call. And no, this has nothing to do with the fact that Oskie looks vaguely like a pedophile.
Separate names with a comma.
