    If we want to throw caution to the wind we could go with an "anti-mascot" mascot (sort of like a heel in the pro wrestling world). Picture with me a living statue General Mouton accompanied by a colorful and comical crew of vigilantes. 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.

    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!

    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)

    Pichouette, the Ragin Cajun Dancin' Boudin Ball, would have shapely legs shod in white majorette boots. She could wear red, white, or black stockings to complement the game day uniform. She would sport a rustic straw hat and have a tart little fleur de lis singed on her lower right posterior. Should she topple performing her lively antics part of the game day excitement would be watching her roll around as she attempts to get her legs under her to rise. She would be the "little boudin ball who could". No dung beetle required.

    If we're determined to go this route I suggest "Vieux Nègre", a wise old créole sage who speaks in riddles and rhymes.

    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.

    I might add they survived with a sense of humor intact and they invented boudin...

    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?
