SUNY Mascot Madness – Championship

Mascot Madness - vote in the final!

Welcome to the First Annual GenerationSUNY Mascot Madness – the Championship! This is a competition where YOU can decide who is the BEST SUNY mascot. We are excited to announce that this year’s contest includes 30 SUNY campuses representing 472 athletic teams and over 220,000 students!SUNY Mascot Madness - championship bracket

Over our 64 campuses, SUNY has 80 NCAA Division I, 290 NCAA Division III, and 385 NJCAA athletics teams, not to mention teams in other athletics associations and club teams! Our mascots work so hard cheering on every SUNY student athlete – why not cheer them on?

We’ve interviewed each competing mascot to learn a little more about them… Where they are from, what their favorite school event is, even what their favorite foods are. You’ll learn what it is that make these dedicated supporters of SUNY athletic teams, students and alumni tick.

Finals:

It’s the Championship Game!

This is it.  In 28 games over 4 rounds, the SUNY mascots have racked up over 278,000 votes! Of that, Hugo the Hawk from New Paltz and Wolfie the Seawolf of Stony Brook took in a combined 44,000 votes.

Over the last month, we have grown to know and cheer for these mascots as much as you do.  We are so excited to see how this match-up unfolds in the coming week.

What more can we say that hasn’t been said about these dynamic characters already? We have learned that both of them are friendly with other mascots, love meeting new people and are highly competitive.  But who has what it takes to become the winner? Only you can decide that.

We know how hard it is getting to pick one winner – but, we remind everyone that since we’re down to the final two, these mascots are great characters with unique personalities and fan support that continue to entertain and inspire us event after event. Help us pick the winner.

The finals begin today and end Thursday, April 4 at 12:00pm. The votes will then be counted and verified and the winner will be announced after the final tally is complete.

Good luck to the remaining competitors. May the most creative/fun/energetic/crowd-energizing mascot win.

      What is taking so long for the “official” results?

    • Mike Wilson says:

      Let’s Go Hugo!!!!!

    • Chris says:

      Right you are K! New Paltz was founded in 1828, and is one of the oldest colleges in the country. Stony Brook was founded as State University College of Long Island at Oyster Bay in 1957-they got a real campus in ’62 when Ward Melville of Tom McAn shoe fame donated a swath of Pine Barrens to the state.

    • David C. says:

      Go Wolfie

    • Geoff B. says:

      SHENNANIGANS. Stony Brook deserved this. I say we do a recount, or better yet, have the mascots do a showdown with different acts and be judged by 3 independent unbiased judges!

    • Bill says:

      Well who won? Are there more uncounted votes out there?

    • NP says:

      It wen’t down for both schools. Not just Stony Brook.

    • julieana says:

      idk why new paltz is so hyped about a mascot named juice. ima need all ya to calm down.

      • Christine says:

        Our mascot is not named Juice, but good try.

      • Kim says:

        “The name is derived from Hugo Freer, who was one of the 12 original “Dusine” French Huguenots who founded New Paltz in 1677. The Freer house still stands just minutes from campus on the oldest street in America, Huguenot Street. Others made the connection of the Huguenots for the justification of the name, which also evoked the spirit of New Paltz history.”

    • Perry says:

      The site went down for the last 10 minutes..

    • Jimmay says:

      Good game, Stony Brook. It was close.

      • Kayne East says:

        NOT EVEN CLOSE, BABY!!!!!

        • Kenny says:

          Since when was 50 votes not considered close? Then again, you can’t even spell Kanye…

          • David says:

            You should take into account the total number of votes when making a comparison. In this case, it’s less than 2/10th of 1%, so I certainly think that qualifies. However, if it was the US Senate we were talking about, a difference of 50 votes is pretty much a landslide. (ie. NOT close)

            • E says:

              Yes but there are 100 people in the US senate. So if there is a difference of 50 votes than that difference is big because there are only 100 votes total. In this case there were 34,660 votes so a difference of 50 votes is very small.

            • David says:

              Right, E, like I said, less than 2/10ths of 1%…

          • Susan says:

            You wouldn’t get the reference if you aren’t a gamer. In gaming, you usually say “good game” at the end to show sportsmanship.

            “NOT EVEN CLOSE, BABY” is a phrase that a pro-gamer/streamer says when he gets away with a sliver of life. When in actuality, it was sooo close.

            There’s no need to be negative and pick on someone, especially when it has nothing to do with SUNY Mascots.

      Lets Go HUGO!

    • Andrew says:

      A seawolf is actually a fish! Wolfie is a walking contradiction! LETS GO HUGO!

      • Jill says:

        A seawolf is not a fish. It’s an urban legend from Alaska that if hunters ever saw it they would have luck during the hunting season. Make sure you know what you’re talking about before you insult an entire university.

    • Tina says:

      HAWKS FOREVER, GO NEW PALTZ!

    • Katie H. says:

      ok I understand that hawks aren’t baby blue…however at least Hugo looks like a hawk. Why does wolfie look like a regular wolf if it is supposed to be a sea wolf? He looks nothing like either sea wolves that are recognized as animals.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_American_sea_lion

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seawolf_(fish)

    • Oscar Icochea says:

      I dont see any videos of Hugo but what i do find are videos of wolfie breaking it down here a two more, maybe hugo can learn a few dance moves from wolfie

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfpxJgO3ogE

      • K says:

        Hugo doesn’t need to dance to make everyone love him.

        • Kal Kapone says:

          Hugo should deff follow in Wolfies foot steps and maybe he can one day reach the pinnacle that wolfie is already on with all the activities on campus that wolfie is involved in. I’m sure Hugo is at every basketball game but wolfie is everywhere in every event and even in random areas meeting and greeting and joking with the students on campus. Wolfie does 100 times more admirable work then Hugo hands down. So the fact that wolfie dances doesn’t make Hugo any less of a mascot, but it deff makes Hugo a less spirited mascot. Which is the main idea of this poll. VOTE WOLFIE VOTE FOR SPIRIT VOTE FOR WOLFIE!!!

        • Wolfie!!!! says:

          last time i checked we’re talking about who’s the better mascot

    • dmack89 says:

      Hawks are awesome – as in this one taking down a deer

      • Montana says:

        That’s not a hawk… It’s a fully grown golden eagle. Whilst larger hawks can take down young deer, that is definitely not a young deer. The bird in that video is twice the size of a hawk, and does not have a white underbelly.

    • Diana Harris says:

      I’m all for New Paltz, but I wish Hugo was not “baby blue!” It makes him look like a nursery stuffed animal, almost. I wish he was a bit more realistically represented, chromatically. New Paltz (the town) DOES have a variety of hawks–very cool, impressive, raptors–to be reckoned with among the bird population, (and hopefully in “the sports arena!”). Maybe there’s a good reason, however, so don’t condemn me if there is, I’m an old person who graduated from NP a while ago and was old when I attended, therefore never got to get “into” the whole rah-rah scene.

    • Tim says:

      Woah, everyone chill. Let’s talk about how our 2 schools are significantly better than every other SUNY. Stop with the hostility. Hugo’s chill, so is Wolfie. No need to be bashing on other schools. LOOK WHAT THIS WAR HAS DONE TO US!

        1) New Paltz beat out Maritime. Going by your logic, that wasn’t a fair fight either, but I don’t see you complaining about that.
        2) Binghamton beat out Buffalo, who is twice their size.

        So just vote and stop complaining. It is not the presidential election. Both mascots are fine examples of school spirit. if you had any school spirit, you wouldn’t be so pessimistic about New Paltz winning over measly statistics that don’t hold any weight.

      Hugo the majestic hawk!

    • Jen says:

      Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Hawk
      He is flying though the doorway cause he never ever walks
      He is flying through the rafters like a loyal loyal Hawk
      The Hawk will never Die!

    • Amy says:

      So let’s make this a little more clear.

      This is not a seawolf, it is. But it’s not the one that Stony Brook represents:

      The seawolves that Stony Brook represent are “mythical sea creatures and according to the legend of the Seawolf, anyone fortunate enough to view it was subject to good luck.” unless

      And more importantly,

      Also, New Paltz may have less students, but the Stony Brook internet network forbids some students to vote on campus. I personally had to go to the library to vote because I couldn’t vote in my dormroom. So stop with the: “Oh woe is me…” act.

      • Katrina says:

        I’m from Farmingdale and was originally going to vote Stony Brook but the amount of malicious Stony brook commenters makes me want to vote otherwise. There’s a way to say things without being rude.

        Good luck New Paltz!

      • Brittany says:

        Yeah, but keep in mind that 90something% of students are instate and most commute, so..

    • Dan says:

      LET’S GO SEAWOLVES!!!

    • S says:

      WOLFIE IS A GENTLEMAN AND A SCHOLAR. GO SEAWOLVES!!

    • what’s a Seawolf?I’m a Seawolf The Wolf will howl aarrroooo

    • New Paltz Alumni says:

      We might be 1/4 the size of Stonybrook but we have the friendliest group of students and alumni with a lot of school spirit. Go New Paltz Hawks!!!! :)

    • STONY BROOK!!!!!!!!!! GO SEAWOLVES <3

    • Michele says:

      Go seawolf!

    • New Paltz Alum says:

      Please support New Paltz/Hugo!!!!!!!!! Thank you :-).

    • HOOTYHOOOOO says:

      OO OO AH AHH OO OO BRRRRR. HUGO THE HAWK ROLLS DEEP WITH MOS DEF.

    • HOOTYHOOOOO says:

      listen for the call. CAW CAW! Hawks till you or I die.

    • Werdna says:

      How is this a fair competition…new paltz has way less students…even if the entire school voted we still can be beaten…

      • bender bending rodriguez says:

        Thats the way life is. Harvard has more reviews because its been around longer, so should the ratings be skewed based on years the college has existed?

      • Jared Reed says:

        1) That makes Wolfie a better mascot. Bigger = Better (at least in this case)
        2) New Paltz beat out Maritime. Going by your logic, that wasn’t a fair fight either, but I don’t see you complaining about that.
        3) Binghamton beat out Buffalo, who is twice their size.
        4) Stop complaining, and get a better mascot.

        • HOOTYHOOOOO says:

          it’s all in good fun Jared. Our mascot is big blue and full of hope and laughter. I’m sad that you are so mad :(. are you mad? why are you so mad Jared?

        • Nick S. says:

          I agree with Werdna to some degree. We did beat out bigger schools but that’s because it wasn’t the final round so voters weren’t taking it as serious. SB is obviously now going to go hard on votes since it’s the FINAL, rendering it unfair to an extent since NP is drastically smaller.
          Regardless of the outcome NP has held it down since the start of this contest, and being the size that it is just proves the amount of school spirit we have. I mean we aren’t called and revered as the “hottest small state school” in the nation for nothing.
          Hugo, like NP, is a champion. SB and Wolfie (because that’s SUCH a creative name) the Seawolf (not even a real animal) are forgettable. So, even if they win this (which because of their size they most likely will) they will remain…forgettable.

          • Jam says:

            Anyone can vote in this, so school population has nothing to do with this. I can go to SB and vote for NP or vice versa.

            If you strongly believe that Hugo is the best regardless of the result of this contest, good for you – it shows that you have school spirit and nothing can take that away from you.

            If you would like to create excuses for a defeat while trashing the other school, it only proves how low of a standard you live your life by.

            • deejayetee says:

              “Jam” I completely agree! Personally, I don’t go to either school, I just know the mascot for SB and believe in them as a person to give it their all and that they are someone who never gives up and works towards being better everyday.

        • Kevin says:

          Because, since we’re more spirited and have a better mascot, we could vote multiple times. In this round we can only vote once.

        • Jay Dizzle says:

          get a better mascot? we’re winning with our handicap! ha!

      • Jam says:

        Also, the vote is public. Any one can vote. It’s not limited to the students that attend both school.

      • Jess says:

        You would have a valid argument about student population if voting was only open to students, but in fact, everyone can vote. So go tell your parents to vote for your inferior hawk and stop complaining

    • Chris Shea says:

      As someone who went to Stony Brook and then transferred to New Paltz, I speak with firsthand experience. SBU has absolutely 0 school spirit, and commuters go home on the weekends. GO HUGO!

      • SBU says:

        I’m sorry when did you graduate ???? because there is clearly numerous amount of events in this school both on the weekends and during the week coming from campus recreation, weekend life council, student groups, greek organizations, and instate/out of state clubs. No school spirit? are you kidding me ? lol have you seen the student zone on football games? I bet you’ve never seen a student wear red on a friday either. Maybe you should recheck your percentage of school spirit SBU has based on actual data because if it was 0% we wouldn’t be competing for the final. Commuters go home on the weekends, maybe because they were like you! people who clearly do not get involved or step foot outside their room or the library have no right to say this school is boring. There is only so much students and staff on this campus can do for others to come out and enjoy. Sucks you had a bad time at Stony Brook, and sucks even more that your lovely school and Hugo will be losing to a “absolutely 0 school spirit”.

      • Hugo says:

        well…if they commute, you’ll expect them to go home, right?

        • alif says:

          LMAO
          good one!
          SBU commuters actually go home everyday . . . that’s why they are called commuters

        • Chris Shea says:

          Well besides the large body of actual commuters, a sizable percentage of those who live on campus are from LI and the city and jump home on the train/their car on the weekends.

      • Chelsea S. says:

        You obviously havent been going to the right events. Have you even been to a football game?

    • Jess says:

      Im a seawolf!!

    • Kevin says:
