Bevo XIII, the longest-tenured mascot in Texas Longhorns history, has gone to the big ranch in the sky.Whoop.
PS - what the heck?
According to the Silver Spurs, the Longhorns mascot "represents courage, fighting ability, nerve, lust of combat, efficiency in deadly encounters and the holy spirit of 'Never Say Die.'"Its a steer people. That means it has no testicles. Steers represent animals that eat a lot, poo a lot, run as little as possible, sleep quite frequently, and are sexually frustrated/ inactive.
"Efficiency in deadly encounters"...sheesh. Efficiency of feeding predators, maybe.
