The University of Tennessee has a problem. Despite having two main mascots, both of them are affiliated with the same political party- a political party now in the minority in the Volunteer state. Davy Crockett was a Democrat who served in Congress before liberalizing Texas away from Mexico in an effort to give voice to the immigrant Anglo minority group living there. Smokey is the original Blue Dog Democrat, given the political landscape in the state at the time of his inauguration, and the changes since then. If UT were to add a third mascot that would better represent the Republican students and alumni, what would it be? Yes, this is a horseshit thread.
