    Cayenne was never alive.

    It was DOA despite the fine efforts of the various people inside.

    Rumor has it Cayenne was diced up and fed to the gators in Cypress Lake.

    New mascot is something exciting to talk about and go with in the future. I'd love to see one for opening day

    It would be an appropriate ending for that "thing"!

    Even though, I am not sure what our mascot should be, it would be cool to have a live mascot on campus in Cypress Lake.

    As a mascot, the Bullgator makes the most sense as it ties in with the history and tradition of the university. And, it makes for a wonderful on-field, costumed mascot. To my knowledge, only Florida and Louisiana would have a gator mascot, putting us in pretty good company.

    I'm wondering if we could have an animal representative that is not a "mascot". I can't think of anything that directly represents "Ragin' Cajuns". Ragin' Cajun's is unique and can't be duplicated by anyone else. i love that we're back to using the Fleur de Lis again and that needs to be on everything in my mind. I don't want the pepper, I don't want the hot wheels logo, and I don't think I want a mascot. The saints have gumbo that has nothing to do with Saints and I don't think it would be bad to have something similar but I don't want a character. If you had a catahoula hound or other pet I wouldn't mind as much but I don't want that as an official mascot. JMO

    Here is one example of a mascot outfit. A real Cajun, not a rubber outfit. Something like the Fighting Irish, a Leprechaun, someone dressed as one, not some rubber crap. No how much would that cost? Some of us older gents have that in our closet now...

    Beausoleil Broussard? That's what it should be.

    I think just Beausolei for the whatever mascot we use would be a perfect name.

    Lets just go with the FDL always and not have some hokey mascot. I dont think we need a pepper or a gator running around.

    I agree. But what do you think of my post #13?....nothing hokey about that. And if we are to continue to be called the "Cajuns", what's more appropriate than the picture presented in the link?
