    Maybe this student(s) should do some research.
    Dr. Charles Coates Jr. chose the name "Tigers" in 1896, continuing the trend of southern teams at that time to name their mascots after ferocious animals, like the northeastern teams, and in particular, Ivy League schools were doing. e.g. Yale Bulldogs (UGA,MSU), Harvard Crimson (Alabama - though not an animal), Princeton Tigers (LSU, Auburn). Coates, himself from the Northeast, related this fact at an anniversary reunion in 1937, as well as his thoughts that the complementary colors he chose in 1893 (Royal Purple and Old Gold) would 'aesthetically fit' a growling tiger face. In addition, Dan Hardesty, a Louisiana journalist, author, and sports historian, related much later in the 1960s that, not only did Coates NOT name the team "Tigers" after any war outfit, but anyone that subsequently somehow claimed this later was preposterous, because the so-called "fighting band of Louisiana tigers" existed 30 years before the LSU team started playing football, and the soldiers who fought in Manassas Va. were not even from Louisiana, but from all over. It was an erroneous myth to begin with.
    In addition, the word "Fighting" did not even become part of the LSU mascot name until after the 1955 season - when LSU's team was noted for "fighting deep into the game til the end" and was known as "The 4th quarter ball club."

    That is a bug that has plagued this forum for years.

    You'll need an admin to approve them. Message Herchel or Dawg in Dallas.
