Since the Top 10 College Mascots were such a hit, I dicided to go the other way with it.

Now, mascots are suppose to inspire us to root for our teams, but these ten (10) mascots make us hide from embarrassment.

10. Zippy


9. Cowboy Joe


8. Cayenne


7. Peter the Anteater


6. Speedy the Geoduck


5. WuShock


4. Fighting Artichokes


3. Banana Slugs


2. Stanford Tree


Last, but not least, the worst mascot of them all....

1. The Fighting Okra


10) Western Kentuky - The Hilltopper - wtf?




9) Trinity Christian College Trolls



8) University of Arkansas at Monticello "Boll Weevil"



7) GeoDucks - No arguing the weirdness of this thing....seriously man, what the hell?

6) Wushock - Absolutley belongs on this list....he is a creepy dude/thing

5) Sammy the Slug stays

4) The Okrah Stays

3) and the Freakin Artichoke stays


2) The Eutectic st louis college of pharmacy - Was voted most eccentric mascot by ESPN in '07....creepy looking isnt he?



1) Rhode Island School of Design "Scrotie"

I am not gonna post a picture, because I am sure it would get this TD removed....but seriously....google it and tell me this isnt ridiculous


Coulnt make as many changes as the last time, but I think I made enough to have a decent TD

GL man!


Zippy

1. When you google zips, two (2) things pop up.... zippers and shoes. Zippers was the orginal name before they changed it to Zips. For those that don't know what Zippers are, they are rubber shoes.

2. It's Akron, not Australia.

Cowboy Joe

I made a mistake on the picture above, this is actually Cowboy Joe:


The cowboy above is Pistol Pete, Wyomings' other mascot. A cowboy and a pony? That's pretty bad.

Cayenne v Boll Weevil

Boll Weevil looks like a P1MP! He's surrounded by University of Arkansas at Monticello cheerleaders. P-L-A-Y-E-R!! Cayenne on the other hand, is a vegetable. I wouldn't be to proud to have a red pepper as my mascot.

The Stanford Tree v The Eutectic

Here is the thing about the Stanford, they are one of the country's best universities, but they sure are confused when it comes to sports. First, they are called the Cardinals, so why is a tree their mascot?

The Fighting Okra v Scrotie

Ok, I'll agree that Scrotie is bad, but I would put him down as the weirdest. The Fighting Okra, on the other hand, is an okra with a unibrow. Even kids are scared!


First of, they are called the CARDINAL, Singular. It is the Stanford Cardinal! meaning they are named after......a COLOR! The tree still doesnt make sense I agree though.


I actually really like Cayenne man, he is intimidating and cultural to the area! Where as the Boll Weevil is just...welll....inexplicable....

Zippy vs. the Hill Topper

Zippy won Mascot of the year in 2007....and he is fast! Zips make me think of fast, and Kangaroos are fast....I can KIND OF see the logic in it....

where as the hilltoppers mascot is a Red version of Grimmace....

The Christian Troll Vs. Cowboy Joe
Christianity and Trolls don't seem like an ideal matchup to me....where as cowboy Joe actually fits his demographic.

And seriously man, how is a Okra with a unibrow going to scare more kids than a **** that is 2/3 times the size of their body length....imagine what that will do to a young boys psychie who doesnt know any better, he would think that was a normal size....and the poor little girls...dont even get me started!

He is by FAR the worst mascot!


Forfeited Turn


Since he didnt answer I will post more pictures:

Oski The Bear from Cal:



Billiken:



Xavier's secondary Mascot, Blue Bob:




Sebastian the Ibis:




That is not an Ibis....seriously. It is an angry Daffy Duck!

Google an Ibis, and then tell me you think this mascot works...

lmao, those are REALLY bad.

July 18, 2011  11:30 AM ET

I can't wait to see somebody try to "top" these. Well done, WuShock's expression looks like he's actually receiving a shocker.

July 18, 2011  11:52 AM ET

#6 is my favorite.

July 18, 2011  12:24 PM ET

Funny list.

banana slug? lmfao

UC Santa Cruz. The slugs are common in the forests in that area but yeah poor mascot choice

July 18, 2011  01:09 PM ET

Voting ---------> so far. I'm originally from Akron. Zippy isn't that bad. He actually won mascot of the year back in '07.

Yep.

July 18, 2011  01:36 PM ET

I'd join your throwdown, but no way I could top those! Fighting OKRA? REALLY? Whose idea was it to use a banana slug as a mascot? Some of these defy words. Too funny.

July 18, 2011  02:00 PM ET

Your missing one that I think trumps all the ones on your list. Its even from a school everyone has heard of. Its a person or group, not an animal. Probably the wimpiest mascot a school could have, since this group of people are about friendship.

ALSO, I missed the best mascot list, but I bet you missed this one. The Pittsburgh State Gorillas, by far the greatest mascot.

If you know anything about Santa Cruz the Banana Slug is a typical mascot. It used to be the sea lion (Santa Cruz is on the coast of Monterrey Bay) but the student body changed the mascot to make it reflect the non-competitive spirit of UCSC.
UCSC is a campus mainly of birkenstock wearing, granola eaters. They didn't want their school to be seen as a place for athletics because sports have winners and losers. Being a loser could harm someone's "self-esteem" (while apparently being identified with a slimy, yellow slug does not do so).

Now the real question is: what school has okra as its mascot? (I already knew about the Scottsdale Comm. College Fighting Artichokes)

July 18, 2011  04:21 PM ET

embarrasing, I seem to have lost the email explaining how to do pictures, can someone send it again?


SoRY!

July 18, 2011  04:34 PM ET

But they are all so cute!!! I wanna hug them all!! Specially the artichoke!

July 18, 2011  04:37 PM ET

I have a few changes!

There are a few that need to remain on the list, that's for sure!

July 18, 2011  05:01 PM ET

Oh my god. Rights pick for #1 is unbelievable. I can't believe that's an actual mascot!
