Chattanooga ‘Mocs’ At Wyoming: 10 Other Mascot Meanings

I saw the headline, “Chattanooga Mocs at Wyoming Cowboys,” and took half a minute to figure out I was reading it wrong. I saw it as “mocks” with a k. Like why would any team make fun of Wyoming and our 7220? For some, an away game at Arena-Auditorium is the toughest game all year, so not smart to mock. If you happen to have an embarrassing brain freeze too, here’s what a Moc is.

Chattanooga’s team moniker is from Tennessee’s state bird, the mockingbird. These mocs also earned a spot in the 2016 NCAA Tournament, so they must be good.

The University Of Tennessee at Chattanooga changed from a Native American name back in the 1990s. Now maybe some people mock the Mocs.

10 More college mascots I’ve always thought deserved a little mocking:

Virginia Tech HokiesHokies are a fictional bird that gobbles up all their food. So yeah, the hokies are basically supposed to represent the students chowing down something fierce…hmmm.

Georgetown Hoyas … From the Greek language, Hoyas have to do with rocks, though their mascot is a bulldog.

Wake Forrest Demon Deacons … Isn’t that a Baptist College? Well, yes it is.

U.C Irvine AnteatersNow that’s intimidating – NOT.

N.C. Tarheels … That was about tobacco workers, but the mascot is a ram, so we Cowboy fans hate ’em.

Concordia University Cobbers … Careful now, we have corn culture that spills over from east of Wyoming. But their mascot’s name is Kernel Cobb.

Cal State University, Long Beach Dirt Bags … Shouldn’t Dirt Bags be on the list of cool mascots?

Game Cocks … If you ever lived in South Carolina, you just got used to it.

Delaware Blue Hens … Is it open season? This mascot is great at dinner time.

South Dakota School of Mines HardRockersAnother for the coolest list?

And some high school mascots are really funny.
