SCHOOL CHANGES, MASCOT STAYS THE SAME
THERE'S ONLY ONE There are some 1,200 member-schools in the National Collegiate Athletic Association and each one has a nickname, with birds and cats dominating the list of teams. There are no fewer than 176 genera of cats, from Lions and Tigers and Wildcats to Tomcats. And, there are
152 birds represented,
including the 44 variants of Eagles, the most popular name in the NCAA. However, there is but 1 school that can boast of Thunderbirds as its nickname. IN VIEW
