    Cy Mascot

    Does anyone else think that Cy wearing the cardinal and gold overalls looks very hick and needs to go? We were watching the game at a sports bar last night and a table of high school/college age kids were making fun of it. There is really nothing cool about it.

    Re: Cy Mascot

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of the bibs. IMO the best Cy attire is the white football/basketball jersey.

    He let Goldy Gopher and that Blue Devil walk out of those games intact. I find the lack of killer instinct that Cy is showing disturbing and unacceptable. I expect better, I've seen better, and I darn well demand better from the nation's "Most Dominant Mascot."

    Amen. The other mascot steps into the arena (or stadium), he is the enemy. The enemy deserves NO MERCY!!

    Two types of mascots: The quick and the dead.

    Re: Cy Mascot

    I thought that exact same thing last night when I first saw him (apologies to cyman1189.) In addition to the hick stereotype, the colors seem faded on tv.

    How about a top coat? Or a bus driver jacket and hat for football? Singlet (is that what they're still called?) is probably not a good idea for wrestling.

    I agree, the look needs to go. I don't mind the jersey though. But personally, my favorite look is Cy in his birthday suit.

    There is one mascot in particular that deserves a brutal death:

    Re: Cy Mascot

    I like the bib overalls but that's only because I feel really uncomfortable when he's hugging my 5-year old daughter when he's not wearing pants.

    I like Lil' Red a lot more than I like Herbie Husker. I hate Herbie. Lil' Red is kind of funny.
