To begin with, birds don’t have tooth! Louie the Cardinal is the real-life incarnation of Indignant Birds, besides he’s the one who holds the slingshot, most likely firing people right into a bunch of random objects in hopes of breaking his private excessive rating.

11. Sparty, Michigan State

Sparty by no means misses a day on the health club and is the descendant of a Spartan warrior. Keep in mind the film 300? It was all primarily based on Sparty; from the chiseled abs to the insane combat sequences to yelling, “THIS IS SPARTA!” All of it.


10. Huge Purple, Arkansas

Clearly a science experiment gone mistaken, Willie the Wildcat has the pinnacle of a cat and the physique of a human. Take into consideration that for a second — all of the evil schemes your cat is clearly plotting in opposition to now you can come true due to opposable thumbs.


8. Demon Deacon, Wake Forest

Aren’t Deacons purported to be the great guys? The Demon Deacon has been identified to go cruising on his Harley late at night time and put hexes on random strangers. This man is clearly on the darkish aspect and practices voodoo magic.

First, I’m compelled to level out Pistol Pete’s eerie resemblance to Burt Reynolds. That’s scary sufficient, however while you look carefully at that shiny plastic face, it’s clear that this dude is certifiably bizarre.


6. Webstur, Richmond

You don’t must have arachnophobia to be afraid of this creepy-crawler. Webstur is the kind of spider that received’t be squished by a shoe or bug repellent. In truth, he most likely inhales Raid when he wakes up within the morning. It’s going to take a workforce of exterminators to even try to eliminate him.


5. Purdue Pete, Purdue

These large, soulless eyes most likely flip you into stone if you happen to stare into them for too lengthy. Unsure what Purdue Pete wants that enormous hammer for, however it’s clearly not for something good.


4. Sparky the Solar Satan, Arizona State

Sparky the Solar Satan carries a trident and is clearly scheming on the low. I imply, he’s an precise satan. Devils are unhealthy. These are details.


3. Stanford Tree, Stanford

Severely, what is Huge Purple? This purple blob bears no resemblance to something actual. And who is aware of — might it really be pleasant? However proper now it seems like Huge Purple goes round city and swallows individuals entire.


1. Mike VII, LSU

Mike VII takes the cake as our weirdest mascot as a result of he’s an precise dwelling, respiration tiger! Not a dressing up, however an actual predator that’s on the high of the meals chain and guidelines the jungle. LSU has had actual tiger mascots since 1936 (enter Mike I) as a part of their College of Veterinary Drugs.
