    I could tell from reading that article that there may be a push to bring back Cayenne.

    God help us.

    What makes a mascot work is time. Mascots are usually the first thing kids notice at games. They're funny, and they're usually what they remember the most. As they grow up, they carry those fond memories with them. For me, it was Bud Man/Cajun Chicken.

    Done right, Cayenne could be a great mascot. Think of Brutus at Ohio State, or Bucky at Wisconsin. They're silly, but people grew up with them, so they're beloved. Whatever we come up with needs to be done right, and we need to stick with it.

    I vote for Cayenne back by next football season! It's unique like us Cajuns.

    Cayenne had a tremendously long leash and failed miserably.

    Dogs return to their vomit, UL should not get stuck on stupid.

    I don't know who it is. Someone on a shaving forum had it and I thought it was kind of "matter of fact " and liked it for that reason.

    I don't think the big issue with Cayenne is the fact that it is a pepper, the problem is that it looks more like a dildo than a pepper!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A round head without a beak, snout or protruding jaw make for terrible mascots because change of direction movements go unnoticed and thus they come across as boring.

    Schexnayder (in advance) called Cayenne "our penance on earth."

    He still succumbed to internal pressure.

    bring back the Cajun man we could have the most politically incorrect mascot in the nation again, or let the two guys on the lawnmower sub for our spirit mascot

They could wistfully drive Cajun fans and assorted stragglers from the tail gates into the stadium prior to kick off. Should our Cajun football squad lose momentum, General Mouton and his vigilantes could arrive to playfully berate and lash at them. Win or lose this would get us noticed. To appease Turb the student selected to portray General Mouton should have a strong jaw line.
    You are one goofy mfer.

    Does Pichouette have a Dung Beetle to push her around?

    Heck, I don't care if we have a Dung Beetle mascot wearing a red and white thong. Just win!
