As a longhorn I am saddened by the loss of the coolest mascot in sports.. BEVO our bull was 22 years old and apparently died of old age. I wonder if they have one ready to replace him...RIP Bevo.. must say he was pretty studly standing on the sidelines at the football games.

Hardly... it's a big smelly cow on enough tranquilizers to sedate a rhinoceros

I believe that was Bevo XIII that retired in 2004 that past away. Bevo XIV is still on the job.

A bull that sits on the sideline is definitely NOT the coolest mascot in sports (and we'll just keep it to college for now). I believe it is CU Boulder that has a buffalo (or bison) that they bring to the games and they actually let run down the middle of the field (definitely cooler). Then there is USC, a pristine white horse with a mounted Trojan soldier armed in full armor. I'm sure there are other examples but those are the only ones I can think of right now. So it basically boils down to you guys having a single head of cattle with some big horns that sits in a little 10X10 cage at games as a mascot, not to impressive.

(this is of course all in good fun and sporting rivalry)

Sounds like somebody's still sore after Jan. 4th?  Wink (again, a good humored joke) But, Bevo definately does not sit in a 10x10 cage, nor any cage, for that matter. He is a wonderful mascot, and right up there with the best, although personally, I think he is the best. (but I'm not biased at all  Wink) Lady the Baylor Bear, the Auburn War Eagle, Ralphie the Colorado Buffalo (awesome name for a Buffalo, if you ask me!), and let's not forget about all the other 4 legged mascots, Smokey the Blue Tick Coon Hound (Tennesee Volunteers), UGA the Georgia Bulldog, and Reveille, the loyal Aggie collie. (Although it is a little retarded that a dog can be a 5 star general in the Corps, and refering to her as "Ms. Rev, ma'am").

Hook'em Horns!

Cheers,
Cameron

Thats what I saw him in when I was at the game in jan. So I was just talking in terms of how he appears at the games. Am I wrong about this? If so, how do you guys keep him under control at the games?
