I like happy Otto.

Crushing some poor team while having a mascot that’s an adorable, fuzzy ball of happiness that just wants to be friends and possibly cause minor mischief is more satisfying than having an angry mascot.

There’s something satisfying about winning without trying.
I'd rather have opposing fanbases say "What the #$&@! hell is that? It is draining the happiness from my soul." than "Your mascot is so cute!"

Anyway, glad that Otto is very unique amongst all of the mascots (happy or angry).

Fuzzy anthropomorphized oranges don’t fall into the “what the #$&@ hell is that” category?

I like the more traditional uniforms with the Block S. What shade of orange should we have? Dr. Gross wanted to standardize it across all sports (I agree) but then went with a Texas-like shade of orange. It's okay, but I prefer the previous shade. :confused:

If you touch the block S it comes up Stanford not Syracuse.
so in my opinion this mess up of their website if probably due to their lack of paying/hiring skilled people to manage the most basic of things. I would also guess it is a symptom of the overall culture at Nike. You posted your message 8 hours ago and their site is still broken. And it's not a web page buried that would take a while to find.

I haven't kept up, did SU sign another contract with Nike? Is it a done deal? I hope not. Not that any of the other uniform providers are any better I suspect
