Hypothetical mascot and colors

[1]
Jun 3, 2021, 6:06 PM

Let’s assume that you were hired to start an athletics program at a college (say, Random Tech) from scratch. What mascot and color scheme would you choose? And it CAN’T be TIGERS or PURPLE, ORANGE and WHITE.

I always liked Kansas City’s gold and red scheme, so I would go with that, and maybe add in gray (my high school’s colors were gray/gold/red.

For a mascot, I’d probably go with some bird of prey, maybe eagle or hawk. I think in today’s woke world, you would have to stay pretty generic or end up in a PC fight.

I would chose the incredibly underrated animal, the Ocelot

Have a cool stylized logo of an Ocelot’s face straight on (think like the Pumas logo from Mexican soccer) and the colors to match their fur colors. Like an old gold (think notre dame gold, not a yellow) and black.

Hypothetically includes no current stigmas attached? I've always like PSU's simple black and white. And Alabama's simple numbers on the jerseys and helmets. I'd probably go simple with the mascot too, like a color, the RED, or the BLUE, or the GREEN.

That being said, I do enjoy the more colorful mascots, like the Stanford Tree or the UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs, etc. If forced away from a simple color I'd pick some uniquely local or regional thing, like Aztecs or Utes or Cajuns.

If we're going to be tree huggers, our very own Palmetto is tough and resilient. I guess our hypothetical students should vote on blue & white like the state flag or beige and green like the tree itself.

Would be a hologram of an enigma and colors would be a paisley mix of a crayola box of 64 crayons, emphasis on salmon

A helmet sort of like this, but with a faceguard?

I would use a palette of 2.2 Billion colors and the mascot would be known as "they and them"

Do you really want your teams to be spineless?!!! Might as well call them coots and be done with it.

Also assuming it's to be a school in SC, I'd choose the Carolina wren as a mascot and the colors of that bird are reddish-brown and buff - with black trim.

An unobjectionable choice. A small bird, but quite fierce when defending its territory or food source.

I'm going with my high school mascot, (Abbeville) Panthers.
For colors, I don't want any shade of red (UofSC, UGA, AL, FSU, etc) even though Abbeville is Garnet and Gold. So I'm going with blue and gray.

2022 white level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg flag link

I'd go with silver and black. Like the old Oakland Raiders.***

Everyone's trying to be PC so - Menaopausal Marauders


Jun 4, 2021, 6:10 AM

Yep, I put a lot of thought into this and we will be a true Transgender friendly organization! We guarantee pee-pee friendly facilities, women with beards, men with shaved legs and shims shave or not!!

Team Name: Menopausal Marauders

Macsot: "PAT" from SNL, you tell me?

Helmet: "Big Rainbow", but at 10pm angle. That way when bending over at the line, the Rainbow is still horizontal!

Everyone wears the same number "11" with "PRIDE" written on the nameplate. Everyone has to be equal! And we will follow UNC's philosophy of buying rings for everyone that signed their name one the roster. Only thing is you have to distinguish if you want a "Nose Ring", "Ear Ring", "Pinkie Ring", "Finger Ring", or "Other"? Others will be discussed in private!

Yay, let's Go Flamin' Bows! Yay!! WooHoo!

I would have a pirate themed name and mascot: Pirates, Buccaneers, Raiders, Invaders, Pillagers, Attackers.

It allows you to have cool imagery and props for the stadium, mascot and fans such as a pirate ship, scarves, daggers, eye patches, parrots, etc. Everybody loves to dress up as a pirate!! Women fans could rock the sexy pirate look. Kids love it.

Colors: some variations of black, silver, purple, gold.
