If they have the "Big Red" from WKU, and the "Orange" from Syracuse, how the heck did this guy leave off Xavier? They've got 2 mascots, 1 a big blue unidentifable thing called the Blue Blob that rivals that of Big Red from WKU. Tandem that up w/ their traditional Musketeer mascot named for another "elite" french fighting force and you've got the Tandom of suck when it comes to mascots.

I've heard of the Rhode Island "Go Nads" before, but just assumed the Nads was a shortened version of something else. How in the hell does that pass by the board of regents at Rhode Island school of Architecture and Interiors or whatever its called. I know Architects and Interior designers/artists can be a little out there sometimes, but you'd think somebody would have put the nix to this prior to inception (Pun intended :)

My Alma Matter (Dayton) has a real winner as well, in Rudy Flyer, basically he's mister potatoe head dressed as a World War era flying Ace. Seriously, he's Mr Potatoe Head w/ a body, kind of funny, but at least identifable.

There's a picture floating out there in cyberspace that I've seen before of an early version of Brutus Buckeye, which was essentiall the Syracuse Orange mascot painted to look like a Buckeye Nut. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to learn the Orange bought the outfit from OSU when they dropped the "men" part of their mascot name in the 90's, dropped in a barrel of Orange paint and called it a day. Talk about mailing it on your mascot.

Always like the Banana Slug mascot, at least the name anyways, and you've got to love Bevo & UGA no matter who you root for.

ragarding the above post, meet my wife's cousin for the first time while down in Florida, he's pretty big into the toy industry, working on the new Ironman 2 figure. Anyhoo, found out he's a proud "go nads" alum :)

Welcome killbatman, looks like I'm garunteed 1 more loss in conference play a season, though RPI was one of the schools I struggled with the most.
8/18/2009 3:42 PM
when you mentioned above post, i was like, what the hell do batman and "go nads" have to do with each other. then i remembered your post at the top of the page...

Btw, the Rhode Island "Go Nads" actually have a guy dressed up in a giant ***** suit as their mascot. i googled "go nads" to figure out what you were talking about. friggin hilarious. they've got a wanker running around at their sporting events ha.

Recall there is a link at the bottom of the previous page discussing the RISOD mascot as well as your's and mine 'polo!

Sticking with my preseason pick of Hamilton to take the north. I think they comfortably hold the lead for the entire second half of conference play. I think the #2 seed will be a 5-way dogfight down to the last day of conference play.

Hamilton (10-6)
Clarkson (8-8)
Skidmore (8-8)
Hobart (7-9)
RP (7-9)
St Larry (6-10)


The south will be also a one-pony race. Washington should be in first after game five and wont be looking back. I wrestled with who's ending up with the #2 seed in the south and landed on Brandeis solely from an experience standpoint. Four SRs at Brandeis versus only one at Chicago and the Judges should lock up the all-important first round bye.

Washington (11-5)
Brandeis (10-6)
Chicago (9-7)
Rochester (8-8)
Case Western (6-10)
NYU (6-10)

As for the Civil War, i think that although the north is as tough as i can recall, the south will jump out to an early lead and hold on to it all season long. South wins 20-16!

The north is going to be three 2-team battles. St Larry and Skidmore will be battling for the top spot. Hamilton and Hobart will butt heads for the third, and RennPoly and Clarkson will be fighting each other off to stay outta the cellar. . . .

St Larry (11-5)
Skidmore (10-6)
Hobart (8-8)
Hamilton (7-9)
RP (5-11)
Clarkson (4-12)

The South will be a Clash of the Titans. Chicago and Rochester will battle it out most of the season for the #1 seed. Then on Nov 8th, the two will square off at the Goergen Athletic Center with the winner all but claiming the division crown that evening. As for the rest of the division, Case Western is a season away from being back in the NT picture. The other three teams will be treading the bubble most of the season. All three could get in, all three could just miss the NT. Every single game is going to be crucial.


Chicago (12-4)
Rochester (11-5)
NYU (8-8)
Brandeis (8-8)
Washington (7-9)
Case Western (5-11)
