Chattanooga ‘Mocs’ At Wyoming: 10 Other Mascot Meanings
I saw the headline, “Chattanooga Mocs at Wyoming Cowboys,” and took half a minute to figure out I was reading it wrong. I saw it as “mocks” with a k. Like why would any team make fun of Wyoming and our 7220? For some, an away game at Arena-Auditorium is the toughest game all year, so not smart to mock. If you happen to have an embarrassing brain freeze too, here's what a Moc is.
The University Of Tennessee at Chattanooga changed from a Native American name back in the 1990s. Now maybe some people mock the Mocs.
10 More college mascots I’ve always thought deserved a little mocking:
Virginia Tech Hokies … Hokies are a fictional bird that gobbles up all their food. So yeah, the hokies are basically supposed to represent the students chowing down something fierce...hmmm.
Wake Forrest Demon Deacons … Isn’t that a Baptist College? Well, yes it is.
U.C Irvine Anteaters … Now that’s intimidating – NOT.
N.C. Tarheels … That was about tobacco workers, but the mascot is a ram, so we Cowboy fans hate 'em.
Cal State University, Long Beach Dirt Bags ... Shouldn't Dirt Bags be on the list of cool mascots?
Game Cocks … If you ever lived in South Carolina, you just got used to it.
Delaware Blue Hens … Is it open season? This mascot is great at dinner time.
South Dakota School of Mines HardRockers … Another for the coolest list?
And some high school mascots are really funny.
