SUNY Mascot Madness – Round 3

SUNY Mascot Madness round 3

Welcome to the First Annual GenerationSUNY Mascot Madness – Round 3! 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 - round 3 (Quarter-finals)

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.

Round 3:

The tournament is moving on to round 3 and the quarter-finals. As round one and two showed us, voting has been plentiful and close. The most narrowly decided match-up to date gave us a winner of less than 50 votes in the Cortland – New Paltz contest. In fact, nearly all of the previous round’s contests brought us a mascot that advanced by a margin of less than 5%

As “analysts” here at Generation SUNY, we have a hard time coming to a conclusion other than all of our mascots are top-notch at what they do. We’ve recently seen some SUNY athletic programs make great efforts in national competitions here during March tournament time. Morrisville, Oswego, Brockport and UAlbany all made strong national appearances in tournaments. Many other programs had their own success in their tournament appearances.

What does this mean? The real winners here are the SUNY family, fans and communities. We learn about the spirit of our athletic teams and representatives and can have fun watching them do what they do.

Round 3, the quarter-finals, begins today and ends Friday, March 22 at 12:00pm. The votes will then be counted and the winners will move on to the final four – the Semi-final round – beginning Monday, March 25 at 12:00. The voting will be limited to one per visitor for the round.

We remind everyone, even if your school is out, there’s still a lot of mascots that

have great characters and profiles to compare against. Read on to find the mascots you feel deserve to move on. Vote for your favorite mascot in each match up and help us decide who winds up on top!

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

  7. Why is voting closed early? The site says very clearly (above) that “Round 3, the quarter-finals, begins today and ends Friday, March 22 at 12:00pm.” Well, it’s still Thursday, March 21, and I can’t vote. What’s up with that?

  14. Interesting… the competitions very first sentence is flawed.

    There is no “First Annual” anything… just “First”…, then 2nd annual, and so-on.

    • I think they mean that this will become an annual event – as opposed to a one-time thing.

  18. I love New Paltz. I really do – the school, the town, etc.

    But the Hawk mascot (at least the person that dresses up in the suit) is the lamest mascot ever. Keep the mascot, get someone in the suit who has some spirit!

    • So why don’t you vote for Privateer Pete from Maritime

    • Hawks, due to Dr. Mengs, outstanding, work on Peregrine falcons.

        • At a John McLaughlan concert in the Gym in the early 70′s — we were asked to take down the Hawks banner because of the whole Vietnam war – Hawks versus Doves thing. We couldn’t convince him that the banner referred to the real birds.

  23. Maritime has the best mascot story! If they don’t win it’s because the school has only 1200 students.

    Post a Reply
    • If they don’t win it’s because we pride ourselves with honesty and integrity and aren’t willing to stoop to taking advantage of a glitch on Internet Eplorer…
