Something I hate about Vanderbilt #1

Siena College will be playing Vanderbilt University in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Friday, and up until then I will post something new, each day, that I hate about Vanderbilt. Today, what I hate most about Vanderbilt is their mascot: From their webpage:

Vanderbilt's mascot, "Mr. C," is named for Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, who founded Vanderbilt University in 1873.

So their mascot is Cornelius Vanderbilt? Really? That's the best they could do? Their founder is their mascot. That's just really lazy. That's a mascot that will strike fear in who? 19th century railroad laborers? Oh no! It's Cornelius Vanderbilt! Run away! He's old and rich and dead for about 130 years! I'm scared, hold me! And it's not even like it is a good mascot for the kiddies. A 200 year old robber-baron isn't exactly cuddly and fun. In other words Vanderbilt's mascot is lame and I hate it, therefore they will lose to Siena on Friday night.
