The Poynette Pumas

Recommended Posts

From Wisconsin, the latest name change away from Indians:

The Poynette Pumas (no logo or mascot yet)

It won over Bison, Mustangs, Pride and Panthers.

I like the alliteration, and the fact that it's not "Wildcats" is a bonus. Easily the best of the field.

Not a single unique or original name in the group - it's like choosing a logo from clip art.

I really have to imagine that there is some interesting or historic thing about a town or school that could be used to choose a logo/mascot.

I agree, but it's still not a bad name, considering the possibilities they were actually looking at. It is a shame that it is so rare at any level to look for locally meaningful team names, though it's hard to fault a little school in Wisconsin for making the same mistake made by almost every professional team in the last twenty years.

Locally appropriate alternatives: Trappers, Traders, Pelts, Miners, Farmers, Plows, Devils, Kettles.
