5 Of The Strangest College Mascots

Mascots are the direct representation of the spirit and values of any sports team. A mascot not only encourages the players to do better but also rallies a crowd to chant harder for their team. Mascots were even amidst a controversy lately because NFL teams pay their mascots several times more than the cheerleaders. Although this can be highly offensive to cheerleaders who work just as hard to maintain team spirit, it only goes to show how important mascots are in the grand scheme of things. There are so many college teams participating in various sports these days, that creating the right mascot has actually become quite difficult. This is why you are likely to run into these funny mascots that are featured on this list while touring the country with your favorite college sports team.


5. Geoducks
This has got to be one of the most poorly designed costumes for a mascot I have ever seen. It is pronounced ‘gooey duck’ and spelt ‘Geo duck’, and is a mascot that is based on a mollusk found in the Pacific Northwest region. How could a sporting team ever find a mollusk inspiring?


4. Boll Weevils
I just don’t understand how a mascot that doesn’t look even the slightest bit inspirational is supposed to inspire a sports team. Either ways, this is the Bolls Weevils, a pest that is supposed to be extremely destructive to cotton. It is the official mascot of the University of Arkansas.


3. The Fighting Okra
Delta State University apparently wanted to choose a mascot that was green as it was also the color of their uniforms, and the only thing they could clearly think of was an Okra. Hence the fighting okra as the official mascot.


2. Brutus The Buckeye
This mascot is actually 50 years old now and is the official athletics mascot of The Ohio State University. It has a headpiece that is supposed to represent the famous Ohio Buckeye nut and apart from that, nearly all of its wardrobe and elements have been updated periodically to create this horrific modern version.


1. Super Frog
This is perhaps the only mascot on this list that is strange and yet slightly sensible on some level. The Texas Christian University has been using the Super Frog as their mascot based on the fact that it is also the official state reptile of Texas.
