    Who would name a BB team the Matadors?

    The Cyclones will get a much needed break before their next game against Cal State Northridge on Dec. 20. The Matadors are 0-10 on the season with a date against South Dakota State on Dec. 18 before traveling to Ames.

    I bet they play great defense.

    Re: Who would name a BB team the Matadors?

    well considering that Matadors go up against a bull that is many times larger than they are, wear it down, and eventually kill the bull in traditional bullfighting, I'd say they aren't as bad of a mascot as cartoons would lead one to believe they are.

    Wow, our SOS will be fantastic heading into conference. Nothing like a parade of patsies to get some early wins. Lets hope we don't get pummelled once we start playing real basketball teams.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    University of San Diego, the Torreros

    They changed their mascot, but this is what it was as of a couple of years ago:



    The students called it the "gay bullfighter"

    While I'm not sold on the name being used for a basketball team, I have to admit it would make a very fitting name for a dodgebull team.
