We’re inching closer and closer to a new college football season and we are counting down the mascots that have yet to be profiled on Mascot Monday, using Phil Steele’s Pre-Season Top 40 Rankings for 2010. This week we are looking at #32’s Middle Tennessee State’s Blue Raiders and their mascot, Lightning. He’s kind of this Pegasus looking thing that came from a line of mascots wrapped in some controversy. The other interesting note from this week’s entrant is just how high a Sun Belt Conference team made it in the rankings. We’ll get to that and Lighting rocking the stage so let us strike right through this.
