10 Least Intimidating Mascots In Division I Sports

They're just not intimidating at all.

10 Least Intimidating Mascots In Division I Sports

Mascot choice matters -- a lot.

1. Austin Peay State University – Governors

A cross between KFC’s Colonel Sanders and the Planter’s peanut man, the Austin Peay State University’s mascot is by far one of the least intimidating. It isn’t likely that the monocle and mustache instill terror in any of their rivals.

2. University of California, Davis – Aggies

In case you didn’t know what the UC Davis mascot was, apparently it’s a blue horse with a creepy smile, and hands instead of hooves. Although this mascot’s genetic makeup is quite confusing, I still wouldn’t consider it intimidating.

3. University of California, Irvine – Anteaters

I’ll admit, UC Irvine’s mascot is pretty ripped. However, its face is just a little too awkward for me to take seriously.

4. Campbell University – Fighting Camels

It’s safe to say that I was pretty confused when I first saw the Campbell University mascot. Is this a dog, or a donkey wearing some sort of toupee? Try harder, Campbell.

5. University of Nebraska, Lincoln – Cornhuskers

I truly feel bad for this school’s mascot. The poor guy is wearing overalls, and his eyes just look really sad. Maybe it's because its school chose a wimpy mascot to represent them?

6. Stetson University – Hatters

Thankfully, the smart individuals over at Stetson realized how weird it was to just have a hat as their mascot. As a result, the present-day mascot is a much smaller hat that is worn by a man. That's still not intimidating, but a lot less creepy.

7. Youngstown State University – Penguins

Personally, I don’t find penguins intimidating.

8. University of Minnesota – Golden Gophers

With a kind face and even kinder hand gestures, it's safe to say that the University of Minnesota’s mascot is the furthest thing away from being intimidating. I can’t even hate on it. It’s just really cute.

9. Pepperdine University – Waves

Let’s be real, this mascot looks like the type of guy that everyone hated in high school. The Hawaiian shirt and flip-flops don’t intimidate me, but rather irritate me. The fact that he wears sunglasses indoors really doesn’t help his image either.

10. University of Delaware – Fightin’ Blue Hens

I think we need to start with this mascot’s choice of footwear. WHAT ARE THOSE? On a more serious note, a hen is a pretty odd choice for a mascot and not intimidating at all. Those shoes are pretty scary though.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
