Default Worst Mascot Ever

So my school had to ditch our native american mascot (and im glad we did), but heres our new choices
We rated them and then were allowed to post comments. I was bored waiting for class and let my opinions be known.




Bradley Braves Mascot Survey
We are interested in your perception of the Bradley Braves mascot concepts
Please indicate your level of acceptability for each of the mascot concepts
on a scale from "1" indicating "Not At All Acceptable" to "5" indicating "Highly Acceptable."

*Required

*1. Braveheart

1 2 3 4 5




Braveheart comments

what's a braveheart? will the movie be playing constantly during games?
Will Mel Gibson be our mascot?!?!?!?!?!? if so...awesome


*2. Clock

1 2 3 4 5




Clock comments

seriously, why the hell would we have a clock?
a watch, ok...but a clock?


*3. Firefighter

1 2 3 4 5




Firefighter comments

are we still on the firefighter bandwagon from 9/11?


*4. Gargoyle

1 2 3 4 5




Gargoyle comments

Gargoyles are stone and cannot move.
Pretty boring mascot, unless you have captured a live gargoyle.
in this case, i will give you $1 million dollars for this mystical creature.
He will fight my griffin, his name will be muffin.
He will wear a wig of golden locks, and i will parade him through the village
for the children to see. He will sing show tunes, enticing the children.
I will be the pied piper of gargoyles. he will be mine. all mine..
muwahhaaaaaha, muwahaaaahahaahahaa.

seriously, who do i make the check out to?


*5. Military person

1 2 3 4 5

Would he (or she) be able to kill the other mascot?
in the name of freedom, or course.

Squirrel comments

what the hell?


*7. Superhero

1 2 3 4 5

1800's widow, to help the bradley police give drinking tickets.


*8. No mascot

They changed my old university from the "eagles" to "the mean green." Mean Joe Green was an old *** NFL player...and not that ******* spectacular. I ******* hate that school...they do rediculous ****.

Bradley Braves Mascot Survey
I never did understand this. I think a Brave (Warrior) would be a compliment, not some discrimination thing. I could understand if they called them the drunken squaws or something like that. Braves kick ***.

There is a college down here (Newberry Indians) that is changing as well.

BTW, my high school was the South Parkersburg Patriots (mascot had one of those Paul Revere triangular hats). We were a newer school in an old town and if you were cool you called us the Rebels (as in south of the mason-dixon line) and sometimes waved the rebel flag. If you did that now, you would probably get sued (especially in Charleston, SC where I currently live). A lot has changed in the past 20 years.

Whereas I can see that the brave thing could be seen as a compliment its not my place to decide, a group of native americans find it offensive, i have no choice but to believe them.

Plus U of I is the fighting illini and I want nothing closely related to that poor excuse for a mascot.

actually stanford's mascot is the cardinal. not the bird. the color. stanford used to be the indians as well. I guess the 'bama's crimson tide is similar but meh.

my hs was also once the indians, and to copy stanford or something, we changed it to the color cardinal. and then the student body was like wtf? so we changed it to the cardinals (bird).

my college is going through similar crap. Our team is the Colonels, and our mascot was a colonel dressed in a grey uniform. Well, so many people complained that our mascot was a confederate military character, that they are trying without success to find a replacement. Nevermind how much that era in history had an impact on this part of the world. I can't comment on how right or wrong it was, but it happened.
