The purdue mascot (purdue pete)is getting a change and will be unvailed at their season opener. Hanger-up! (Isn't that how their chant goes?) Also does michigan need a physical mascot?
was jealous of all the press time Ole Miss is getting with Admiral Ackbar.
And no, Michigan doesn't, hence that MGoShirt that depicts why.
should make that old dude from Poltergeist their mascot.
They're hiring Colt McCoy who will announce this week his arm is officially dead forever.
Purdue should really have a douche bag be their mascot.
"Look kids, it's the Purdouche Bag!"
infinitely more entertaining than another Michigan Band medley featuring the Backstreet Boys!
But I'd also like to see the live wolverine mount the badger at the 50 and give us a show we'd never forget.
(By "mount" I mean of the taxidermy variety. What, did you think I'm a pervert?)
Didn't we have a live Wolverine on the sidelines for a while... like a long time ago?
Yes, someone posted this awhile ago.
We should get two more and name them Chuck and Des.
A live one, and have it run out with the team like Colorado or Texas does. Then set it loose in the visitor seating area.
Michigan used to have Biff the wolverine in the 30's
called a boilermaker?
A shot of whiskey in a beer is a boilermaker, I believe.
It's similar to a carbomb, except lame as all balls.
Best comment of the day!!!
I rarely +1 someone twice in one thread but he's on fire today with this one and his Purdouche Bag comment.
Boilermaker = 폭탄주 = bomb alcohol
I think that speaks to Purdue's illustrious football traditions. I would drink heavily too if I lived in West Lafayette for 4 years
Hitler, is that you?
Will the new one look like less of a creeper?
looks like Tom Hammond, as an undergrad.
Wait, is that Joe Tiller lurking over PP's left shoulder? Ha!
Maybe they could put train tracks around the field and have a train going around the whole game. Purdue might get a game not on the Big Ten Network if they did that. I'm sure ABC would give them a 3:30 kickoff or two just so people could see the train mascot.
We think we can we think we can we think we can we think we can
then when the team derails, so too does the mascot
the unfortunate deaths of 5-10 blue hairs a game would be worth consideration for the epicness of such a display
they could thin the buffalo population
As long as their new mascot looks depressed when we beat them next year I don't care.
To answer your question about a wolverine as a mascot...
This is a great quote in the article:
"It was obvious that the Michigan mascots had designs on the Michigan men toting them, and those designs were by no means friendly."
When I was in school there were a couple of tools trying to sell the athletic department on "Willy the Wolverine." Some information here:
Don't mess with tradition anymore. No Mascot.
Have you seen the "Why there's no mascot in Ann Arbor" shirt? Why ruin a good thing?
Also, is it just me or does Matt Painter look like the Purdue mascot? Maybe they molded the mascot from his likeness?
He kinda looks like a badger. A buddy of mine was in the Izzone and he said they had lots of chants about this.
