Here we go again rolling on through another Mascot Monday. Oh and we are rolling alright. Some say we may be thundering. That’s right, this week we will take a look at Marshall University’s mascot, Marco the Buffalo. Now I’ve covered live buffalo mascots before (Ralphie anybody?) but this is the first time we’ll see it represented in costume format. How does Marco stack up against his live counterpart? More importantly, does Marco live up to the school’s nickname, The Thundering Herd? We’ll find out about that as well as how mascot are marketed to kids so let’s rumble on through.

Hey hey hey! Some mascots practice in the off season to get their moves right. Some study film tapes hard to make sure they are entertaining to the highest degree. Then there are some mascots, like the University of Dayton’s Rudy Flyer, who just chill out and surf the web. Cruising around the internet hitting up social media sites is what he does and when he has to bust a move, he’ll drop it like it’s not. This week we are cruising on autopilot with Rudy Flyer. You are now free to move about the blog.
