Mascot Madness 2015: The Finals

2015 Mascot Madness finals

Here we are. After 4 rounds. the finals to the the 3rd Annual Mascot Madness competition are here. This is the chance for YOU, the students, alumni, and fans to decide who SUNY’s favorite campus mascot is! We started with a total of 40 mascots from across New York State in the running to win the coveted title. They were each randomly placed into 4 SUNY regions and ranked by the number of athletic teams each mascot represents, which determined which mascots competed against each other in each round. Now we are down to two: Red the Dragon from SUNY Oneonta and Baxter Bearcat from Binghamton University.

The contests in the final four were extremely close, as they were in the other rounds. All votes were thoroughly reviewed and verified, in which the initial results were made more clear by removing excess repeat votes from the logs. The results show us how the fans of these mascots gathered in support for their favorite.

So now that we are at the end, who will emerge as the victor? Can Baxter reclaim the title? Can Red become the latest newcomer to the winners group? Only you can decide. Vote below!

  1. How would winning Mascot Madness impact your campus?
    Winning the Mascot Madness competition in 2014 was an incredible moment for Binghamton. We were so excited, we had a Trophy Tour where different offices on campus got to showcase it for a week! Wining again would prove that we’re a campus with unparalleled school spirit!
  1. What’s one thing you want voters to know about you before the final round?
    I don’t take days off! Spreading school spirit at Binghamton is a year-round job, and I take it seriously! A vote for me is a vote for a Bearcat with serious devotion. Oh, and did I mention I have razor-sharp fangs!
  1. If you won the title, how would you celebrate?
    I’d pour Gatorade over myself, run around the Events Center a dozen times and do a backflip! But seriously, I’d let everyone hold the trophy, because I couldn’t do what I do without the support of the Binghamton community!

    SUNY Oneonta has many groups and organizations that are passionate about their individual goals. Winning Mascot Madness would unite all current and former Oneonta Red Dragons in a common point of pride!
  1. What’s one thing you want voters to know about you before the final round?
    I symbolize all things Oneonta: I’m friendly and fun, but also strong and determined. I can be fierce when I need to be! ROARRRRR!
  1. If you won the title, how would you celebrate?|
    First, I’d hold a big celebration on the campus quad with all my friends and fans! Then, I’d head to the spa for some much-needed R&R and a makeover.
