    The only legit answer (and I'm serious) is to bring back a real live "Cajun Man" mascot like Wv does with "mountain man"! It would be very unique and great. Don't understand where the idea of a menacing Pepper came from, first one looked like an evil fruit of the loom character.

    I agree...either this or the Fabulous Cajun Chicken. Everything else is for the birds.

    its crazy and terrible because it is new.

    if standford were to introduce their cardinal mascot today, they would get laughed out of fbs. if western kentucky introduced the blob today it would get voted down with the quickness. those are two of the most recognizable mascots out there in todays world. im okay with cayenne as long as they get it right (stay away from the dildo look)

    Apparently there's zero consensus about the mascot on this board. Will it be any better in the general public? Whatever is chosen will probably require a very strong marketing push by UL.

    Unlike all other mascots, there's no single thing that denotes the Cajun WILL. The will to keep ones religion, language, and choose ones allegiance. Even to the point of being a refugee by choice. No gator, dog, chicken, or buffoonish characters.

    IDK, the Gator has been able to maintain all of that since 1898 at The Swamp. LOL.

    Well they did fence in the (30 feet away from the field) Gators in 1901 so they could play football.

    Do we have anything that rivals that 116 year tradition?

    Any animal choice only serves to further muddy the waters as to our identity. My first choice is just don't have one. Follow maybe by Cajun man or something absurd like the chicken, which is just a parody character not a mascot.

    Only this. 1901 when it was reported the town "was ablaze with vermilion the institute color."

    Agree with this. This whole idea that we need a mascot is archaic.

    Having said that, how many major universities have athletics with no sanctioned mascot?

    I'm cool with the "Cajun Man".

    West Virginia, Notre Dame, and Florida State have three of the most recognizable human mascots out there.

    The question is will he look more like the early 90's Cajun Man or more like a Troy Landry with rubber boots.

    Just imagine a Troy Landry type mascot in a miniature airboat running around the stadium. LOL!

    We live in such a "P.C." climate, I don't think either of those would fly today.

    IMO Turbine the Red Bull Gator is the way we should go, BUT he needs to be Kid Friendly! So a little less intimidating, Cajun/Creole type HAT , maybe some hip waders with his clawed feet popping out the boots, Louisiana across his chest, fleur-de-lis's patterned a cross his waders, Ragin Cajun's on his Tail Armor bumps, etc. what say you?
