Look on the bright side. MTD and his penguin friends had days of fun sliding on their bellies on the ice into the frigid waters of the bay. Then they all went out for raw herring afterwards.

I'm thinking that you must be talking about Youngstown State.

Yes, they are the Penguins. Way back in 1992 (or was it 1991) they came out to play Nevada-Reno in the 1-AA football playoffs. Nevada was undefeated and ranked #1, but fell way behind, then mounted a tremendous comeback which ended when the darn kicker missed a 28-yard field goal on the final play of the game. Youngstown won 30-28 and went on to win their first 1-AA national championship.

Ugly cheerleaders though.

You had to know that MTD would go to a school that had a black & white mascot -- why else would he wear the black & white stripes?

If my fading memory serves me right, Phil Simms is also an alumni [or should that be alumnus(Chuck?)].

Not Phil Simms, you are thinking of the Ron "Jaws" Jawarski.

And for all of you Maiza and Blue fans, it was Jim Tressel that guided YSU to those four national championships before he headed to The Ohio State University which also has TBDBITL.

It should also be noted that the late Dwight "Dike" Beede, YSU's first football coach was the inventor of the penalty flag and his wife made the first set ever used in a football game.

MTD, Sr.

Why doesn't a school called the Penguins have a hockey team?

If we're talking bad mascot names here, how'd you like to go to Davenport High School in Davenport, WA...they are the Gorillas. And Klamath-Union HS in Klamath Falls, OR is the Pelicans...I think I'd rather be a Penguin than either of those two!

They may be ugly but they're all wearing tuxedos.

For strange names, how about the Cobden (IL) Appleknockers or the Tillamook (OR) Cheesemakers?

For the love of Bob, but what was the name of the Michigan high school that ESPN used in some of its promos earlier this year. It had a real weird nickname too.

Also try out the Dexter (Mich.) H.S. Dreadnaughts for both its boys' and girls' teams.

Did you know that Rocky and Chuck made the cheerleading squad at their ol' alma mater? Here they are in action:
