Mascot Monday: The Aztec Warrior

You know it’s fun to dress up when you’re a mascot. Most of the time, all you have to do is zip up costume, toss on some shoulder pads, and drop a big ole furry head on your shoulders. That’s tons of fun, but to me, slapping on some warpaint and gigging up to look like a warrior is way better. That’s why I’m pumped to talk about The Aztec Warrior and San Diego State. It seems fluffy characters outweigh the human ones so when I get a chance to review one that sports weapons, I get super psyched.

GameDay: State of the Mascot

As some of you may know, I do a Mascot Monday post ever week in the offseason.  What I do is an introspective into the many mascots that parade the sidelines during the games.  Some of them are live animals.  Some of them are costumed.  And even some of them are real people.  There isn’t a massive ranking list like the football teams, but I do tell you if the mascot is worth watching and if the school really cares about its spirit.  Welp I saw something yesterday that made me think about the state of mascots.

Mascot Monday: Sebastian the Ibis

Another week of mascots and we cracked the top ten of Phil Steele’s Preseason Top  40 with the #9 Miami of Florida Hurricanes and their mascot Sebastian the Ibis.  Just what is an Ibis?  How the heck does it go with Hurricane?  We’ll answer those questions as well as blow through Sebastian’s somewhat fiery past.  Some say the Hurricanes are on the cusp of being back this year.  Mr. Steele believes that they are Top Ten worthy.  Now let’s find out if Sebastian is just as worthy.

Mascot Monday: Chief Osceola and Renegade


When coming up with this week’s mascot, we decided to go with a somewhat big time program.  How we settled on Florida State’s Chief Osceola and Renegade was much more of a journey.  Was it the recent news of sanctions the NCAA put on Florida State that would vacate some victories and take away from Bobby Bowden’s record?  Nope.  Was it former player and WWE wrestler Ron Simmons and news of his induction into college football hall of fame?  Nope.  Actually it was the pit stop we made on the way down to our annual float trip.  Yup.  Thank you Osceola Cheese for this week’s Mascot Monday.  DAMN!
