SUNY Mascot Madness

Welcome to the First Annual GenerationSUNY Mascot Madness! 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!

Mascot Madness bracket

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.

Round 1 begins today and ends Sunday, March 10 at 11:00pm. The votes will then be counted and the winners will move on to round two beginning Tuesday. Vote for your favorite mascot in each match up and help us decide who winds up on top!

  1. Hey, When are we going to be able to vote in Round 2?

  2. Wow Canton’s mascot is the ugliest and dumbest I have ever seen or heard of. Just terrible. The same group must be voting for them over and over.

  3. Does the winning school receive anything?

  4. Mustang pride! As if there was any doubt. Didn’t you guys see the end of Revenge of the Nerds?

  5. Well, SUNY Potsdam’s Max C. Bear may have lost, but he scored more votes than any other mascot (excluding Morrisville) and most brackets combined! We may have lost, but we still did a pretty great job!

    On to the Kangaroo!

  6. Mustangs scorch the bears! Only match-up to reach 10,000 though,

  7. Enrollment: SUNY Maritime 1,661. SUNY Buffalo 19,334. Just saying. Go Privateers!!

  8. Stupmie Pride all day, every day. (Plus Oakie is the cutest mascot.)

  9. MUSTANGS! Obviously the haters are gonna hate- two or three want to eat us and one wants to ride us. Good thing we can’t be corralled!

  10. Our super creative logo is like the one without a mascot, not like the students here have seen it either… Smh

  11. It’s so awesome to see all the Stumpie support! Talk about school pride :) Go Mighty Oaks! … Stumpies4Life!

  12. Where is the UAlbany Great Danes mascot????!!! C’mon, your most successful (by Conference championships) Division 1 school doesn’t even get on the bracket?

    Post a Reply
    • I believe they chose not to participate so Capital District let’s jump on the SUNY Cobleskill Fighting Tiger and Adirondack Timberwolf Bandwagons!!!!!

      • Taras Kufel

        We reached out to Damian at UAlbany and the Fredonia Blue Devil, but they were not able to participate in this year’s competition. Fingers crossed for next year though!

        • Due to NCAA violations? Mascot fighting possibly? KIDDING!!

  13. What’s a Morrisville?

    Post a Reply
  14. ESF is indeed deeply rooted, and should leaf the competitors in the dust!!

    Post a Reply
  15. Also why isn’t SUNY Brockport listed???

    Post a Reply
    • If you look closer at the bracket, once the suny potsdam/morrisville vote comes in, Then the winner faces off against brockport. So basically brockport has already “won” round 1.

  16. Wow way to leave out Oswego but include CC’s. I mean we don’t have the best mascot but we have the best Logo. Some like Alfred State dont have a picture of a mascot either.

    Post a Reply
    • Heck yea. I mean, The ESF “Mighty Oaks” get represented but the “Lakers” don’t? At least we can move!

      Post a Reply
      • First of all- what the heck is a Laker? Second of all, acorns play a MUCH more important ecological role than a “Laker” (again, whatever the hell that is). And acorns can move! They have many dispersal agents. I mean Oakie came all the way from England! GO MIGHTY OAKS! GO OAKIE!

        Post a Reply
  17. I agree! Let’s see Wolfie!

  18. Jayhawks Rule! Go Jamestown!

  19. The Fighting Tiger Mascot Has Excellent Answers to the Profile Questions!!!!!!!

    Post a Reply
    • Oh no question – sounds like a highly intelligent predator!

      Post a Reply
      • He definitely is a very sophisticated cat who is excellent at articulating his thoughts.

        Post a Reply
  20. What about Great Danes of Albany?

    Post a Reply
    • I know, right? If this is a SUNY mascot bracket, and SUNY has 64 campuses… why not use all 64?

      Post a Reply
  21. Colleges should be matched up by size at this point to make it more fair (and would not favor my choice, Stony Brook) – but I prefer a fair fight!

    Post a Reply
    • I completely agree!!! schools with large populations in theory will beat a smaller school every time because they have more students

      Post a Reply
      • Look at UB vs Adirondack…. right now a dead heat. UB has 27000+ student, Adirondack around 4000. And ESF is has nearly doubled up on Delhi, with half the student population

        Post a Reply
        • Sadly, this is true, I am a total “wolf” head and we are in no way able to compete against a school the size of Buffalo…we gave it a good run though, proud of our pack!

          Post a Reply
  22. You should put up the Seawolves logo, not just the SB, to match all the other colleges.

  23. How long will voting last for Round 1?

  24. Sad to see SUNY Cortland not represented… =(

    Post a Reply
    • Guess I should have looked at the brackets first!

      Post a Reply
  25. NCCC are the Thunderwolves… not Trailblazers anymore.

    Post a Reply
    • Thank you for updating!

      Post a Reply
    • They never should have changed from the Trailblazers….heck they should still be the Frontiersmen!!!
