    Mike, LSU mascot is racist

    You can't make this stuff up. A LSU student has started a petition to change the mascot, claiming it was chosen to honor a Confederate fighting group called the Tigers.
    One of my ancestors fought with the Blue Ridge Tigers, 4th Ga Cavalry.

    Newsflash, the slave masters were indeed racist. No working class person should feel kinship with privileged slave masters from the past. That is pure idiocy.

    Hopefully LSU is officially renamed the corn dogs.

    I thought that was their name already. I must have missed something.

    If my memory serves me correctly, it was General Lee who gave them the name when he said that they fought like tigers...

    Well. if it came from discredited General Robert E. Lee, a man who's statue was unfit to stand in New Orleans, then you know the name simply must be changed, but nothing associated with our Native Americans, that would be politically incorrect too. "Mud Bugs," yes, that has a nice ring to it: The LSU Mud Bugs.

    If it makes everyone feel more comfortable I could get on board with it...

    Still better than being named after a menstruating woman's discharge I guess...
