If they re-starts football? The school's marching band would play the Jaws theme in between plays when Long Beach State have the ball.

What the literal F was the point of this?


Long Beach’s mascot was iconic.

It would have been cool if they had extended Dirtbags to their entire athletic department.

With that said, they could do a lot worse than Sharks.

Between Snoop, Warren G and the surviving members of Sublime, you'd think they could get the best, most laid-back fight song in college sports.

Why was their former nickname controversial?

Per a statement from the school president in the story:

Quote:“The Prospector Pete image grew from our founding in 1949 and reflected our Founding President Pete Peterson’s common references to having struck the gold of education by establishing Long Beach State College,” Conoley said, noting the term “49er” will remain an informal nickname and an identifier for alumni, students and supporters, as well as the name of the student newspaper. “But we’ve come to know the 1849 California gold rush was a time in history when the indigenous peoples of California endured subjugation, violence and threats of genocide.”

It's weird that they will strike it from formal use for that reason but not try to quash it informally. Seems like a half-pregnant solution. Either it's offensive and get rid of it completely, or it's not.

But will they run afoul of Greg Norman?

At first I thought this was one of those satire threads that JR invited folks to write. 07-coffee3

It's appropriate for hoops, considering that Tark coached there...

God this PC movement is the worst.

You’re trying to satisfy people who can only have the power and fulfillment they crave by being offended and these dedicated folks can be offended by ANYTHING. No college mascot will be safe in the long run unless they become the Fightin’ Vote Democrat!’s nothing else will be safe

Why not something relating to Ancient Egypt if they make a name change? They play in a pyramid.
