College Football may be the pride of the nation, but there certainly are mascots that aren't. Common mascot names, The Tigers, The Lions, The Eagles and so forth, have been accepted throughout college football. Others have not. Here are the worst college football mascots you don't want to be playing for.
Is this supposed to some kind of Evel Knievel thing?
Why would your mascot be an old guy as a daredevil?
Their football team isn't that good either.
When your mascot is a giant bee, it strikes terror in the hearts of the other team.
Unless it's just a guy dressed up as one.
That's not a lion.
That's a bear.
Just throwing that out there in case anyone wants to change it.
Awwww...gophers are so cute!!!
Too bad mascots are supposed to intimidate opponents and not make them feel all warm and cuddly inside.
Oh well, maybe there will be a football champion QB who is afraid of gophers.
The only way you can have a terrible mascot is too have a really good team.
That's how Ohio State got away with it, winning all but one game last season.
Anybody know what a buckeye is by just looking at the photo?
Another rooster/chicken mascot that they gave an exotic name to.
Good thing they went 11-3 or no one would have come to their games.
Sometimes the mascot represents the team.
This orange looks like it has been beaten to it's puny little pulp one too many times.
That's what usually happens to the Syracuse Football team too.
It looks more like Foghorn Leghorn with a headband.
It's a good thing they did fairly well last season with a 9-5 record, to make up for this terrible mascot.
It's hard to intimidate other teams when your mascot looks like a bug from a children's show.
Not only would the players feel bad about playing for a school who's mascot is this bad, but think about the guy that has to wear the outfit.
Cardinals aren't that bad, the St.Louis Cardinals' mascot is pretty good.
It's a tree...with big lips.
