National signing day is over, and now we set in for the long haul awaiting the next College Football season.
So what do we do to occupy our time as football fans?
Other than the old standby of arguing how the BCS can be improved, and what a playoff would be like, what is there to do?
Making power rankings of course, for every single thing possible!
With that in mind, here is my ranking for the Pac-10 Mascots.
No one said you had to only rank the players and teams!
Each team’s mascot was graded in four categories worth five points each. They all will score better than the mascot pictured in this slide would have!
Creativity: How common is the Mascot?
Live: Does the school have a live mascot? This is an all or nothing category, but live mascots add to the atmosphere in my opinion. Discontinued use of live mascot doesn’t count.
Logical: Does the mascot/nickname make sense for the team? If the mascot is a real animal, does it exist in that state? If not, how does it tie into the Universities' name?
Notoriety: How recognizable is the mascot? If you see it, is the Pac-10 Team the first you think of?
