Mascots...we've all had one at some level of schooling.

Some of the schools in college sports have great school names and great mascots. Some schools leave a little more to be desired.

I thought some schools could use an updated mascot (with a little humor) that was a little more in line with the current state of the school (or just made me chuckle), so I compiled the following top 20 list of new college mascots.

Feel free to leave comments about your favorite new mascot or any idea you may have to rename a school.

20: The Toledo “Ortofollow”

19: The Rice “Uncle Bens”

18: The American University “Recession”

17: The Sacred Heart “Breakers”
