Saw Varsity's horns off...

Bevo XIII is dead. Long live 13Ev0. (For those who don't know...link):

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.

Hey at least it's better than our mascot. We're the Augsburg auggies... yep, baby eagles. That's why I usually pretend I go to the U, I'd much rather be a gopher than a baby eagle when it comes to football on saturdays.

I dunno... baby eagles are still carnivors, right? :)

I'm not saying the longhorn isn't a cool mascot. Its a good representation of the state, and its history and stuff. But seriously, lust of combat?

very true... it's carnivorous, it's a symbol of freedom, plus the baby factor adds a touch of cuteness.
