I wish this Afro Duck was the current logo! 😄 I'm surprised Oregon of all places had this.

Great find!

 

I'm more surprised that it wasn't an HBCU - but if it wasn't going to be an HBCU, I'm not particularly surprised that it's Oregon.

 

From the article:

Quote

Csakany said that after Afro Duck’s debut, other universities ordered Afro-ized versions of their own mascots, but he couldn’t recall any specific schools that did so.

 

I'd sure like to see who the other schools are!

Nebraska, Wake Forest, and most confusingly, Ole Miss

I think Nebraska might be the weirdest. Is there any black population even living in the state? Lol

Why Gladstone Gander look at scorer? He play defence? It must be Harden defence style.

BTW if Afro Duck suggests that white people can't run fast then.....it's so true, we can't. Anyway is a very nice logo.
