Loser has to post a video of their mascot rooting for the opposing team, so let’s not let Norm (& Sir Purr) down! #KeepPounding #OneCarolina



CU Denver

I like how we’re matched up against a team without an athletic program.

Sometimes I feel like that is not much different than us.

At least we “try”.

Sounds like the 6 o’clock news must have called us “UNC” when discussing this challenge:

Vincent Bill @vinnyniner39 @wcnc It's UNC Charlotte doing mascot challenge, not UNC-CH. Horrible job. UNCC is local and 2nd largest university in state. No excuses.

I saw the broadcast. Anchor was like, “So go on over to UNC’s website…” Probably not the anchor’s fault as the text below him had UNC and he is simply reading the prompter.

Well I’m sure UC Denver gets confused with Boulder… And U Denver… Prob not Metro state…

…your point?

I didn’t realize this. What is the point of this again?

So UC Denver isn’t U of Denver with an Ice Hockey program?

The AD should be trying to reach out to every single one of these about football tickets but yet they are too busy trying to decide if they want to try the new Angry Ale’s for the next 2 hour lunch.

UC-Denver is a public school that is in the same complex as Metro State and Community College of Denver. The University of Denver is a private school with an outstanding hockey program and a Division I Men’s BB team.

My mother is an alum of DU. As noted, quite a few Pioneers have made their way to the NHL (DU’s wiki page claims 70).
