Maybe the Capital, which has four Virginia schools (including CNU) and Salisbury.

Do they have a mascot yet? I'm guessing it'll be something Christian-themed, like Crusaders or Lions.

A mascot is coming soon. Hoping they stay away from Lions. Theres only room for one Big Blue Beast in town. Then again, if we start having to worry about Regent, ODU is in trouble. Then again part 2, I never thought Id see the day we'd have Liberty nipping at our heels either.

Looks like it's coming Friday; the school has a pressed at 6 pm to announce a logo and nickname.

They are now the Regent Royals. Wonder what the long game for them is? D3? Scholarship sports? Do they eventually make the move to D1 (knowing it's a long way off)?

Not bad, figured they would play off Regent, though I was hoping for something more unique. UCSC are the Banana Slugs. Sounds sorta lame, but IMO it's pretty bad ass, AND it sure is one of a kind.

Getting a cameo in "Pulp Fiction" didn't hurt. Several years ago I visited the Seaside amusement park in Santa Cruz. I drove to campus hoping to buy a T-shirt, but the store was closed.

The name is good, but a little too close to "Monarchs" for My taste. They were trying to Get the "go blue" thing started too. They should go w green. I'd be shocked if they were D2 in the next 20 years. They don't have the money LU has and Regent is trying to position itself as the smaller, more academically focused, close knit Christian college in Va. Think Hampden Sydney vs VT.
