Warhawks land at ULM

MONROE, La. – On Wednesday, ULM Mascot Committee endorsed Warhawks, the mascot
suggestion that garnered the most votes in a recent online public poll.

While ULM?s new mascot design has yet to be finalized, the committee has
suggested the Warhawk mascot could assume a variety of identities that draw
upon different strengths. One Warhawk identity could relate to the area?s
aviation history. Warhawk has local historical connections to the P-40
Warhawk Airplane, flown by Northeast Louisiana?s General Claire Chennault
and the Flying Tigers during WWII. The P-40 Warhawk was the first American
plane to break the 300 MPH mark, was rugged, and could withstand heavy
punishment.

The Warhawk identity might also include hawks, a fierce bird of prey,
indigenous to this area and often seen on ULM?s campus. The hawk symbolizes
courage, speed, power and vision.

Rickabaugh Graphics representative Eric Rickabaugh will tour the ULM campus
and northeast Louisiana to gain a feel for local flavor and will then
incorporate that into prospective mascot designs. ULM staff is busy planning
an unveiling of the mascot designs, with a goal of June 1.

ULM President James E. Cofer, Sr., who participated in Wednesday?s decision,
is grateful for the committee?s extensive work over the past five months. ?I
want to thank the committee for all their hard work and their continued
commitment to the university,? he said. ?The work is not done. We?ve
outlined the next steps here today and all of us are counting on you to
continue to do great work as we begin new traditions at ULM.?

You get the "A" for the class CanadianOwl..


Foghorn: Well I say, I say son you are a chicken!

Chicken: No I'm not! I'm A Chicken Hawk!!


That is going to be a mess during their cheers! I know we don't have a lot of room to laugh but Chicken Hawk will probably get more laughs than our Owls mascot.

There's nothing wrong with FAU's mascot, especially when you consider:

  1. Hokies (turkey) (Virginia Tech)
  2. Corn Huskers (Nebraska)
  3. Ducks (Oregon)
  4. Ant Eater ( UC Irvine)
  5. Bannana Slugs (UC Santa Cruz)(only in California!) ???
  6. Horned Frogs (TCU)
  7. Kangaroos (UM Kansas City)
  8. Tar Heels (UNC)
  9. Terriers (Boston U)
  10. Violets (NYU) huh?
  11. Vixens (Sweet Briar College) (what does that mascot look like?)
  12. Gophers (Minnesota)
  13. Cardinal ( several colleges) (not your most frightening bird)

This is only a tip of the iceberg.

Some of the best programs in the country don't have ferocious names.
