SUNY Mascot Madness – Final Four

SUNY Mascot Madness - Vote in the Final Four

Welcome to the First Annual GenerationSUNY Mascot Madness – the Final Four! 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 - final four 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.

Round 4 / Semi-Finals:

It’s the Final Four!

In two of the tightest races we’ve seen yet, Rambo the Ram from Farmingdale beat out Roody the Kangaroo from Canton by less than 400 votes and Baxter the Bearcat of Binghamton squeaked past powerhouse, Victor E. Bull, by 75 votes.

This semifinal round should see some of the toughest competition yet.  Look for even narrower margins as the stakes are even higher this round. Some insight from our Mascot Madness analysts is below:

  • Be on the lookout for Hugo the Hawk from New Paltz.  We’ve seen a lot of New Paltz pride on the social media circuit cheering him on during the tournament.  Is he the Cinderella story of this year’s competition?
  • Rambo the Ram from Farmingdale is always ready to duke it out. He’s been pulling out wins by narrow margins throughout the tournament, which shows how his supporters can take the bull by the horns and make some noise at any point.
  • Wolfie the Seawolf from Stony Brook has been plenty busy supporting Stony Brook athletics during their winter tournament runs. A true professional no matter the event, Wolfie is sure to be a tough out.
  • Baxter Bearcat has had tough competition through the tournament to this point, narrowly escaping Victor E. Bull and Burghy. We can only predict another tough contest in the semi-final. He will be a formidable opponent in the battle of university centers semi-final against Stony Brook.

We know how hard it is getting to pick one winner – but, we remind everyone that even if your school is out of the competition, these mascots are great characters with unique personalities that continue to entertain and inspire us game after game.  Continue to vote and spread the SUNY spirit onto your campus!

Round 4, the semi-finals, begins today and ends Thursday, March 28 at 12:00pm. The votes will then be counted and the winners will move on to the Final – beginning Friday, March 29 at 12:00. The voting will be limited to one per visitor for the round.

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

  • Yi Wan Wu says:

    Wolfie is the best!!!

  • Chris Meek says:

    I’m a Seawolf! Started as a Patriot and when we made the move to D- I we changed our mascot. I was a writer and assistant sports editor for the Statesman. That was a fun time, and even more of a fun time as an Alumnus of the school. Proud to see my Seawolves in the College World Series last year!

    It’s a shame I can’t umpire their softball team when they come south to get their games in! The only downfall of being an alumnus.

    Go Wolves! Kick Tail Wolfie!

        Although SB is also a great school, many SB students get rejected from Bing. We are the elite SUNY. Get at our level.

        & About the mascot thing, Within 15 minutes, SB surpassed us and brought 400 votes out of no where.

        Something is fishy there, seawolves.

  • Jonathan says:

    The option to vote is not there! Can someone please look into this before its too late?

    • Susan says:

      The option to vote is not there because someone voted on that computer or wifi already. You need to chg your computer or wifi to vote. Some people tried to vote on their phone, but had to switch to 4G because they couldn’t vote using the school’s wifi.

      The vote button should be underneath the results.

      • Jonathan says:

        Didn’t vote yet and everyone uses the same school WiFi. This sucks because I know a lot of people are having the same problem. Definitely affected the votes.

  • Jared Reed says:

    What’s a Bearcat? Is it a Bear? Is it a cat? Is it some freaky hybrid?
    Seriously though, pick one. You can’t have both.
    What’s a Seawolf?
    I’M A SEAWOLF!!!!!

  • Kathy S says:

    I can’t find an option to click to vote!

  • Sarah says:

    Yeah Baxter!

  • Ken H says:

    Wolfie FTW

  • . says:

    BAXTER FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • wolfiefan1 says:

    Wolfie all the way! Have you seen the crazy things Wolfie can do?
    He has more spirit than the other 3 mascots combined!!!!!!
    And so now I must ask:

  • Alanna says:

    can someone tell me how to vote for my mascot WOLFIE 🙂

  • Louis B. says:

    During orientation, I fell down the stairs. Baxter helped me up and asked if I was OK.
    You go BAXTER!! Bearcats FTW!

    • Shane says:

      Not like a mascot to speak…that’s why Wolfie’s better

      • Louis B. says:

        Speaking isn’t the only form of communication. Signaling works too! Don’t jump to conclusions, wolf.

    • Lor says:

      I love Wolfie because he was so kind to my son! He must have seen something in my son that he needed a hug, and stayed with my son as he walked along campus, trying to hug him! He brought so much joy to our family, because we laugh hysterically whenever we talk about Wolfie!
