Pretty sure that is a reused head from the Purdue Boilermakers.

Friars actually have a 2nd mascot, a dog, since the early 90's because kids were too afraid of the Friar

Well, the Big East Conference is pretty a cult so he fits right in.

That's begging for a "SOON" caption.

The single worst mascot ever is a close race between Roboduck and Hawaii's short-lived monstrosity the students nicknamed "Bows-O"

Oh Dear God, I would pay to see a documentary on that thing.  I lived in Hawaii when that thing was introduced and even the haole population was going "who asked for THAT"?  It had to leave after one quarter because people kept pelting him with trash.

30 for 30 does short docs as well, usually about 15 minutes long.

 I would contact them and see if they know anyone on the island who would be interested in doing a short piece.

While they're at it they can ask why they got rid of Vili.

So...upgrade, really.

*There was a short period where the main mascot was a costumed dalmatian from '95 to '02 when the current two Friar mascots came along. (The dalmatian is also now a secondary mascot.)

\that original head was farking horrid looking
\\I did not submit this headline

I like, btw, that the current Friar FINALLY gets to wear an actual habit, with a real (albeit huge) cowl that he wears sometimes.

I'll take the creepy friar any day over this unholy abomination of nut hair and copyright infringement.

Patrick Thistle and King Cake baby are much scarier than some friar.

Ah, the Partick Thistle mascot.  Obviously created by and for people who, like Thistle fans, who have never actually seen the sun.

I'm pretty sure the head coach of Navy would probably be a good guy to talk to about that.  Ken Niumatalolo was a Hawaii quarterback and assistant coach at the time.

That's not a mascot, that's just New England Patriots legend Teddy Bruschi cosplaying a jedi on the sidelines.
