Things To Love About Ohio: Dueling Mascots (A Reprise)

Earlier this year we noted that the Ohio University mascot (“Rufus Bobcat”) and Ohio State mascot (“Brutus the Buckeye”) had a tiff before the OU-OSU football game. In most states, one mascot controversy would be enough for the year.

But not Ohio!

Today Cincinnati police detained and cited the University of Cincinnati mascot (simply, “Bearcat”) for … wait for it … throwing snowballs. (Like so.)

Would law enforcement have been a bit more lax if not for the episode in Columbus earlier this season? Certainly there has been a chilling statewide effect on a mascot’s right to engage in typical mascot shenanigans and tomfoolery. But did anyone see this coming? For Ohio sports mascots, the bleak, slate-gray sky this time of year must resemble East Germany before the Wall came down.
