As many of you know, the University of Massachusetts (Amherst) renamed themselves from the "Minutemen" to the "Grey Wolves." There should still be time to submit alternates.

Here is mine: The umASS P.C. Jackals. Go Jackals!!!

The Minuteman was good enough for their State quarter, but not good enough for their school.

This political correctness crap has to stop. I heard that some idiot wanted Las Cruces, NM to change the city name because it means "Three Crosses" and there should be a separation of church and State. Give me a break!!!

I missed something...is there a substantial population of gray wolves in Massachusetts? Where the heck did they get that?

Maybe it's not about the real Revolutionary Minuteman, maybe it's about an insecurity regarding a libidinal inference. How's Rosey Palm-ettos for a school name?

Maybe they can have a gun lock sculpted, thus ensuring, as they have the weapon in their house, that it's safe.

Then they can become the half hour people???

Really, though, it's hard to beat the PC Jackals

I can hear it now...

PC!
PC!
Gooooooo Jackals!

Can't miss!


On second thought, I took my Masters from zoomass, so maybe I'll submit that for real.

See you later; got a email to send.

The UMass ewes? Go ewes, get eaten!

The UMass Dukakasises? Go Mikes, drive that tank!

The UMass boozehounds? The Fighting Teddies? Great swim team and water polo team they would have.

The UMass Eloi? Go food! The track team would be "fast food."

The UMass French? Go Frogs, drop that rifle!

The UMass Speech Patterns? Go tones, give them that annoying, nasal accent!

The UMass Taxes? The symbol would be a hand reaching into your wallet.

The Weasels?

HAHAHAHA!

I go to UMASS. :p
I don't think the mascot has been changed yet. Gray Wolves haven't been in MA since the 19th century. If the mascot is changed then "UMASS drunks" would be very fitting. Then they could allow us to carry alcohol into the stadiums. Our mascot could be Senator Kennedy. :rolleyes:

How 'bout:

To borrow jrob's idea,

The (Dead) Kennedys

Um, I think you'll have to fight The Dead Kennedys (http://www.deadkennedys.com/) for the copyright on that one. ;)

But um....My turn to be in the dark. Where has UMass stated the reason for the mascot change?

Yes, I'm aware Jello Biafra might have some issues (and not just with UMass using the name).

"Simpering Girly-Men"
"Limp-Wristed Tofu Eaters"
"Oversensitive New Age Weenies"
"Clintonian Chatterboxes"
"Chomsky's Thumb-sucking Weasels"

And my personal favorite...

"Alan Alda"

Thanks for the link, CZ. :)

Next time, perhaps I should do my own search. :o

Maybe the Drunken Kennedys would be the best mascot.

The Redcoats.

Afterall, they run counter to the whole 'minuteman thing' anyhow.

I think it should just be shortened to the "Reds."
