    Was there every any doubt? :cool:

    1) Ralphie the Buffalo, Colorado. Her (yes, Ralphie is a female) size (1,300) and speed (25 mph) combination would have Ralphie soaring up Mel Kiper's draft board. Unfortunately for CU fans, many home games in recent seasons have peaked with her entrance.
    From the panel: "Nothing says, 'Look out!' like a Buffalo on the run, dragging four or five guys with him." — Mike DeArmond, The Kansas City Star.

    (They couldn't resist getting the dig in, though.)

    The Stanford tree was suspended from official mascotdom from being a bad, bad boy.

    Just sayin'

    Let's be clear. There's only one cool mascot. The others are just mascots.

    No doubt about it. They should name the best mascot award "The Ralphie" and not even require Ralphie to compete anymore. :lol: "And the winner of this years Ralphie award and recipient of "The Ralphie" is Uga! Congratulations Uga."

    Love it! My BF went to Georgia and the only thing we argue about is our mascots. I still don't understand how anyone can argue that having a dog on the sidelines is as cool as a live Buffalo charging through the stadium. And Bevo? A drugged out cow? WTF?

    There really has never been any compitition. DBT is right, they should call it the Ralphie award.

    Stupid auto-censor. I have no idea what Ralphie does to Uga for breakfast at this point.

    Well, we can eliminate: Eats, invites, has, asks, takes. Those are all I can come up with that don't get censored and go with "Ralphie ______s Uga for breakfast." I don't think Ralphie would be performing sexual acts with Uga for breakfast, though. So, we can probably eliminate "****s."

    Wait I'm confused... Isn't UGA a boy? Probably had his balls cut off or did I miss something?

    Good point. With that consideration, I certainly hope that ****s wasn't the censored word.

    The Stanford tree? Huh? Besides Ralphie getting her proper credit, who made this list?

    After Ralphie, they did make a few good observations. Any list of mascots begins and ends with Ralphie. But in the spirit of the thing, here's my list:


    #2 Uga - a bit of an institution down in Georgia. Plus, he bit an Auburn player. Props for that.
    #3 - The Trojan dude is kind of cool. I think he should probably be on there, especially if Chief Osceola and that dorky Leprechaun made the list.
    #4 - Chief Osceola - yes, this is cool. A flaming spear? Yeah. Very cool.
    #5 - Mike the Tiger. Any live mascot is always going to be better than some douche in a fuzzy costume. I don't think anybody else has a live Tiger, even though there must be about 100 other "Tigers" for mascots.
    #6 - Bevo. Reluctantly, I have to admit that having a big cow on the sidelines, even if drugged and in a stupor, is kind of cool.
    #7 - The Air Force Falcon. Hey, their mascot does tricks. That's cool.
    #8 - The Sooner Schooner. As much as we like to laugh about how it tipped over that one year against CU, it's sorta neat. They usually have some kind of good looking chick riding on there, too.
    #9 - The Baylor Bear. Seriously. They really have a bear. Remember, live mascots > stupid douches wearing fuzzy costumes (or regular costumes with oversized bulbous heads).
    #10 (tie) - the Tennessee guy and the WVU Mountaineer. They're basically the same person. I can't tell the difference.

    I have to say that if Florida had an actual alligator, they'd be on this list. That would be awesome. They should work on it.

    I could have sworn they had a live gator. Oh well.

    The Baylor Bear would be an easy number two if it rode a unicycle. Other than that...meh.

    My high school, The San Angelo Central High School Bobcats, had a real live bobcat. But, for obvious reasons, they didn't let it run around the field.

    If they had a gator, they'd be on everybody's list. Instead, they have a couple preppie fuzzy gators in sweaters. ghey.
