Genoa, Illinois athletes are known as the Cogs. Their mascot is a cog wheel but 'Cogs' originally stood for Community Of Genoa Schools.

Florence AZ high school mascot are the Gophers. In a city where the main industry is prison, the mascot is an animal that digs tunnels.

There was this private school in Memphis that merged or reorganized or something and was "First Assembly of God School" for a while. I had a friend who recounted that it wasn't the most intimidating initials (they didn't highlight the O).

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

University of California Santa Cruz Slugs. I kid you not. http://www.goslugs.com/

You know how sportscasters condense names of some teams, like the Devil Rays are the D-Rays, and that sort of thing? Why don't they do that with the Blue Jays?

My school mascot was a 'raider', a Confederate soldier, some idiot decided that the colors should be blue and gold.
