Weird. Why would any college administration allow that?

And? It's still the school mascot.

Are you policing this thread for correct/incorrect posts? What have you added besides discord?

Gorillas are racist? That's a stretch only made by an actual racist.

Because the OP was asking specifically about college football teams and their mascots

Here is part of the OP

It would be hard for the OP to claim them as their team, if the team doesn't exist

Not college but I thought I'd share. My kids go to a Catholic HS. Their mascot is the "Padre" or Father. Pretty common for a Catholic school. But the girls hate it because they are the Lady Padres. Or, the Lady Fathers.

Default Old Mascot - Somewhat forgotten Football Team

We were the Bugeaters before the Cornhuskers (and we have become kind of forgotten of late - so I don't know if we qualify) Bugeaters is an unusual name though .

Sometimes I wonder why Gorillas aren't used more often as a mascot...
