Lay off the crack, Dave.

Think of what that could have done for the offense under Tressel and the Walrus, though.

I hate the offseason.

I love Brutus but this article is the pot calling the kettle black.

I can't agree.  Brutus the Buckeye is unique and imaginative.

Let's go anthropomorphic tree nuts with striped shirts!

I sort of like Sparky.  That tiger is pretty creepy- wife and daughter concur

At least Clemson isn't called the Tigers while having an eagle as a mascot.

Go tigers, war eagle. Quite possibly the most schizophrenic rally cry in college football.

It's like furry cosplay meets plantation owning slave holder. How much creepier can you get?

Those eyes look like pineapple slices out of a can. Yummy.

The most glaring issue is his jersey. Clemson so brilliantly decided David's jersey should be No. 1/2, which would actually be moderately clever if Dave were wearing No. 1 instead of 0. As it is, instead of a number that's adorably smaller than that of his older counterpart, David's number appears to be just an arbitrary fraction.

Ohio State and Clemson on the field, but "Dave" and Purdue Pete off it...the ultimate staring contest.

I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...

Just sent this to two of my Clemson friends. Can't wait to hear their thoughts.

It's no Black Serval, that's for sure.

Well.. I don't know what else you would expect from a school that also has a pet rock they keep at the team's entrance to their stadium

Moral of the story: Do not take small children to Clemson or Maryland games. The sight of the mascots will traumatize them for life.

The Western Michigan Horse looks like it sleeps behind a liquor store. Not because it's homeless; because it saves time in the morning.

Wait... We're mocking their ridiculous mascot when we, ourselves, have a whack mascot?  A nut with 1980's sweatpants?  Downvote me all you want but cmon folks...

The down vote is a mighty tool. Use it on idiots, not differing opinions.

...it is somehow objectively worse than Brutus, who is an anthropomorphic tree nut with a striped shirt.

emphasis added. Seems self-aware.

Yeah. A fluff-hit piece, all in good fun.

Plus, the other key takeaway from the title is "unimaginative." Sure, maybe a son of Ohio 'gets it,' but "buckeye" and "buckeye nut" come with plenty of imagination. Remember, you can go anywhere to be a Tiger or Eagle, but you can only go one place to be a Buckeye.

Could be worse. I had the dubious pleasure of rooming for a quarter with the actual "brown Buckeye blob" shell back in 69.  My roomy was an officer in Block O and long story short, they needed a place to keep Brutus. I still have nightmares about those eyebrows.

Too much time spent at the North Heidelberg rather than the classroom. SSD 68-72

There were far more awkward Brutus Buckeyes:
