    Are you kidding me?

    The most dominant mascot in the nation doesn't even place in the top 5 of the Big XII in this article? What are these guys smoking? The country spoke earlier this summer and Cy is the MAN! Give me a break.

    Re: Are you kidding me?

    This is the very reason why we, as a research school, need to find a way to harness a tornado and keep it for a gameday mascot. All love to Cy, but the tornado would be #1 on every list.

    Absolutely. It was an online poll that covered mascots from across the country. So, the country spoke. Enough said.

    Someday...I vow to deflate that thing via a BB gun.

    I am longing for that day...when that stupid mascot that dances around like it has a bad case of Parkinson's disease, deflates with a feeble squeak after being riddled with BBs.


    (apologies to all those with Parkinson's, being forced to watch such a despicable act each Saturday - seemingly mocking your disease)

    Re: Are you kidding me?

    This is why the CBS poll didn't make any sense. It was all about school MASCOTS - not our logo or "nickname." It was very confusing to me at the time at how everyone was rooting for Cy when the actual competition had to do with us as a tornado and nothing to do with our walking bird mascot. With that said, I think Cy rocks but come on, as a mascot he's not fierce as all :-)

    A tornado on the other hand is second only in power to the hurricane, so next year to make it clear, CBS should call their "Mascot Challenge" something else... like... "Nickname Challenge." lol

    I bet about 90% of the votes came from people here that were making the push to keep us in it. Let's be realistic now, we all know how it was won...
