Favorite Team Mascots
Mine is the Fighting Camels of Campbell University
The Bayou Bengals, I've always wished that was our official nickname as there are so many Tigers.
The Scottsdale Community College Fighting Artichokes.
Santa Clara JC Fighting Banana Slugs
I spoke to some Auburn fans, and they said they like the South Carolina Cocks the best!
Western Carolina "Catamounts"
VMI "Keydets" (they don't know what it means)
Pittsburg State (Kansas) "Gorillas"
Mississippi College "Fighting Choctaws"
My alltime favorite
1. UCSB Banana SLugs
2. Williams College Purple Cows
3. Haverford College Black Squirrels
4. Richmond Spiders
5. Southern Arkansas Mule Riders
Here is a great site if anyone wants to see the different mascots/nicknames.
This is not college, but if you want to see some great team nicknames, go to www.texasmascots.com and you will see a complete listing of all the high school nicknames in Texas. And there are some beauties:
Amarillo Golden Sandstorm
Port Lavaca Sand Crabs
Itasca Wampus Cats
I did not know Williams had changed its nickname. They had always been the "Ephmen" (pronounced eef-men), but within the last few years had changed their name simply to the "Ephs" because the women made a fuss. I guess they couldn't be the Ephwomen. So a century of tradition went down the drain.
Williams big rival is Amherst College who are, of course, the Lord Jeffs.
I know the purple cows are a mascot, but it might be the unoffical mascot, like the war eagle or whatever AU is calling themselves these days.
