Potential name change: University of Missouri - Columbia "Mammoths"

The University of Missouri "Tigers" have a long and damn proud history that for their college mascot. Unfortunately that doesn't change the fact that "Tigers" is one of the most common and thus, mediocre, mascots in college sports.

Columbia isn't even home to a real life Tiger like some of our SEC brethren:

Let's see Dorial Green-Beckham's reaction to that:

Well, you can't take down a mammoth easily.

There is even some precedent given the creature's habitat:

"The Columbian mammoth (Mammuthus columbi) is an extinct species of elephant of the Quaternary period that appeared in North America (in the present United States and to as far south as Nicaragua and Honduras) during the late Pleistocene."

Based on the mediocre results of the "Tiger" mascot, I'm proposing a radical change to Mizzou athletics.

  1. First, we shall nickname Dorial Green-Beckham "Mammoth" in much the same way that Detroit Lion wide-receiver Calvin Johnson goes by "Megatron".
  2. And Second, Dorial "Mammoth" Green-Beckham shall henceforth be the mascot of the University of Missouri, supplanting the "Tiger" moniker and imbuing the athletic program with new life to overcome a history of mediocrity.
