Leading up to the 2015-16 season, we launched the 2nd Annual College Court Report Mascot Mayhem Challenge in search of the top mascot in college basketball. After over 12,000 votes were cast, Sam the Minuteman took home the title.
Shortly after the completion of the challenge, we were approached by a group from ATTInternetService.com who used social media to determine the best college football mascot in the NCAA. While they used a slightly different selection method and ranking system than we did, it has led to some unique comparisons.
Their list was entitled the College Football Power Poll: Social Media Swagger.
Before the college football season kicked off, they selected 10 mascots from teams that they thought would contend for a national championship. After doing so, they used various criteria to analyze their presence on Twitter to determine their list of rankings.
Below, you can find the Top 10 lists for the top mascots in college basketball, as determined by College Court Report, and the top mascots, as determined by ATT Internet Service.
At the bottom, you can VOTE on which group of mascots you prefer: college basketball or college football?!
