The Red Blob

I just wanted to say that I think the red blob mascot is awesome, even though I am an owl fan.  The thing is hilarious.  Mascots are all about marketing, and there isn't a single mascot in the sunbelt that gets more attention then the red blob, love or hate him.  What we need is a big ass barn owl (I know we are burrowing owls, but barn owls are bigger and cooler)that swoops into the stadium before every game and hangs out on a perch throughout the game.  Then it needs to be trained to fly a lap around the stadium everytime we score.  That would be awesome, and that would get attention.

If that were its excersize, it would be one fat owl this season.

Re: The Red Blob

Last season Ted Hutton tried to get Digger (the owl from his prediction posts) to a game and asked for some donations even $5 from everyone who read his blog to get Digger to a game but it was unsuccessful and fell just short. I asked him again if it was possible to do again for the home coming game

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Re: The Red Blob

Can owls be trained to do that like Hawks? I thought that was always the issue

It is. Owls are notoriously untrainable. I just remember hearing something about the problems they had on the Harry Potter set trying to get those owls to do anything.

I guess Owls are uncoachable…pun intended.

Re: The Red Blob

If the owl doesn't work, we could just create the blue blob. We would create a huge rivalry with Western Kentucky which would be referred to as the "Blob Bowl," and would gain attention throughout the nation!
