    In this part of LA the Catahoula is a well known breed of dog. Of course any breed can have "mutts", if they crossbreed. In this case we are talking pure bred.

    The Catahoula is an old breed of dog, one that is used for working cattle, hogs, and wild animals. They are brave, intelligent, and spirited. They adapt to obedience training, and require exercise or work to lower their level of energy. One of the biggest faults of the breed is that some are born deaf, which really makes them useless.

    108 years too late. Making a guy in a Bobby Jindal costume look viable. "T- minou" the red and white striped Cajun Tiger makes as much sense. Give it up Turb.

Here is my rendition of what it could look like, I liked Fideaux (pronounced Fy-Doe), just because I heard it somewhere and it made me laugh, but I also like Rage as a name too. I wasn't really sure about the cut off blue jeans but I figured why not, just wanted to get some opinons on it. Because from what I understand there are alot of people like me, that just don't like Cayenne so maybe if some influencial people see my idea and like it, they can pass it on to the governing bodies who make these decisions. Gimmie your opinions, like, what I can change, or if you just don't like it at all. I did it with a simple paint program so its not gonna be perfect. Also I started with just a plain Gator I found on the internet, and added the Jersey, and pants. I don't know what kind of copy right there is on that Gator but I'm sure we could use a similar one. Lemme know what yall think.
    I'll say what know one else will. Looks like a gaytor. Just saying, can't be the only one out there thinking this. Please don't take as a personal attack even though I do disagree with the mascot idea of a gator.

    The gator is featured in more UL yearbooks,than any other animal or mascot.

    Still trails live oak, spanish moss and in separate poll- former Governor Bobby Jindal. Maintains narrow lead over "T-Minou" the red and white striped Cajun Tiger.

    Revisit your yearbooks, live oaks and Spanish moss appear more than alligators. It's not even close. I'm personally fond of alligators, have even owned a pair of Catahoula curs years ago but acknowledge they too are a poor choice for a UL mascot. Take this from someone with the foresight to have never voted for Jindal. Next time you can't sleep try counting sheep instead of gators.

    The oak trees have been on campus almost as long as the gators, so yes they appear in a lot of pictures as backdrops.

    The gators are the focus in their appearances.

    Cypress trees are the oldest trees on campus, like the gators they predate the school.

    A cypress tree would be a better choice of mascot than a gator.

    I'd be more in favor of a cypress tree (like the Stanford Cardinal mascot) over any of these.

    Sorry Turb. I'm probably just north of half your age. I still know what's cool.

    I wonder how close that bull gator is to the Florida gator. In a similar case, Mickey neese had to change their mascot configuration because it was too similar to the Wyoming Cowboy mascot and they lost and had to change the bucking position of the bronc buster. Jmo

    You said nothing is cool.

    I don't mind time based opinions, mine was formed by the perception of my cousins in Nebraska, California and Colorado in the 1960's.

    They associated Louisiana with gators and I don't think we should run from it.

    Zero explanation needed. Trees dogs, peppers, boudin all have learning curves that no one will appreciate.

    Also New Mexico State was sued due to the fact that their mascot was too similar to Oklahoma State's Pistol Pete.

    Another couple of months and you'll be up late scraping off your MAGA bumper sticker in the dark of night. (If you haven't already) We have nearly as much of a chance of seeing a red and white striped Cajun Tiger as UL mascot as we do a Gator. Not happening.

    Opinion is very different from an imaginary poll.

    I concede your Bull Gator received twice as many votes as "T-minou" and a cypress tree was not even nominated. Perhaps pollsters should have checked IDs. I suspect you may have voted twice.
