    Maybe when Mercer has been playing football for a few more years we'll remember what their mascot actually is

    Beavers? Bruins? whatever... we're playing that team from Georgia

    HA! I had forgotten that one.

    Now I will re-tell my favorite Furman Citadel Story. Someone (can't remember his name) used to call me the Sunday before every Furman/Citadel game and call me every purple tinted curse word he could think of (and there were lots of them). I waited until he was done and said "If I ever want to be cursed out by a The Citadel man, I will get in my car, drive to Charleston, check in to the Francis Marion Hotel...............and for get to tip someone"
    Ah Horse Feathers!

    "Tough as a bearkat" was apparently a popular expression in Texas in the 1800s.

    Re: The origins of some FCS teams' nicknames

    There are also schools with football related nicknames that no longer sponsor football. Just about every four-year school that admitted men prior to WWII had a football team. You can see some of the football remnants in today's mascots.



    St. Mary's Gaels...name given to fb team by a sportswriter
    Detroit Mercy Titans...see St. Mary's.
    St. Louis Billikens...fb coach resembled a Billiken doll.
    Loyola-Chicago Ramblers...fb team traveled a lot.
    Wichita Wheat Shockers...fb players had summer jobs cutting and shocking wheat.
