Trojans. Gators. Banana Slugs.
The success of a college sports team is represented by seemingly inconsequential things - an animal, or a meteorological event, or whatever a Gorlock is.

And mascots? Well, it’s no secret that a university's athletic performance hinges entirely on the ferocity of its brand. Look no further than the Quakers for proof.

But let’s be honest, here: How many wildcat variations do we really need? Why all the bulldogs? And in what way could a buckeye possibly be intimidating?

In the spirit of BTS Week, it's time to give these misguided mascots a fighting chance.

Yup, it’s a chop game.

Rebrand a college team by creating an awesome new nickname, mascot, logo, or any combo thereof. Something Woot-oriented would be nice, but not necessary.

I'm keeping the guidelines real loose with this one. Just get creative, try to be funny, and prolly don’t do anything with a university whose name rhymes with “Zen Fate.”

You have until Friday to guide your team to victory, Coach.

I went to high school in Fairfax, Va. Our mascot was the Fighting Cavilers. How bad is that? Worked though, we frequently, and still do, took state in a lot of sports.

I feel like the scent of laser-burned slug has to be something terrible.
