College Football Mascots – The Real Truth Behind the Titles

Chanticleers

Let’s hypothetically say that you rose from your peaceful slumber back in the year 1954.

Not a terrible start to the day in my book. But then (here’s the real hero move), sober as a bird (you’ll also get this pun in a few sentences), your following thought was, “I want our mascot to be a chanticleer.”

(Pause).

According to Dictionary.com (because even Wikipedia laughed in my face), a chanticleer? Well, it’s a rooster. No, it’s not this medieval warrior that drapes its back in spikes and holsters a silver-plated automatic pistol, because in my eyes, the name “chanticleer” isn’t some sissy bird. Grow up.
