This Story is Why I Love College Sports
« on: August 25, 2022, 09:36:07 AM »
At the University of South Carolina, there is a disagreement between the former and current owners of their live Gamecock mascot for very important reasons.  The previous owner used to trim the rooster's comb because that's what true fighting cocks do. The new owners kept them on because combs help roosters to regulate their temperature.  (SMH...even fighting roosters are getting soft these days!)  And now they have to change the name because the previous owner has the rights to it but won't assign them to the new owner.

"Albertelli has had a contract with USC for the past five years, allowing USC exclusive rights to use the trademarked name “Sir Big Spur.” That contract ran out on Aug. 1 and Albertelli has no plans to renew it, or to let the Clarks use the name.

“A chicken is a chicken but a fighting gamecock is something different. This is dumbing down the Gamecocks,” Albertelli said. “Whenever a new coach goes to a school that’s been struggling, you always hear a statement similar to, ‘You’ve got to change the culture.’

“I don’t know what culture in our day and age means, but if it means making a gamecock look like a chicken, or not hurting him because it might make the chicken feel good, it’s not preserving what we’ve built. This is dumbing down our culture.”


So now the local paper is conducting a contest for the new name.

The leader?  "Cock Commander"


Really, college athletics is so damn awesome.
