What can beat a giant gator, a husky, a bear, and a man with a musket in a fight to the death?  Sparty can.  Now can Izzo and the boys bring back the “other” title to East Lansing?

Michigan State Spartan vs. Tennessee Volunteer

Tale of the Tape: Well after a bunch of fights between giant animals and mythical creatures, it all comes down to a fight between two humans with weapons.  Can the Spartan use his sword, shield, and rage to take down the Volunteer, or does the musket trumpet all?

We keep on rolling along, with the Final Four of the mascot tournament moving to Cowboys Stadium AKA Jerry’s World.




UCLA Bruin vs. Michigan State Spartan

Tale of the Tape: That big bastard of a bear comes marching in after trouncing the Dayton Flyer, while Sparty dismantled the UConn Husky with a shutout.  The Spartan is fierce with his sword, but the bruin is a giant walking bear.  Who wins the first battle in the Final Four?


Baylor Bear vs. Tennessee Volunteer

Tale of the Tape: The Baylor Bear absolutely squeaked out a win against the Aztec Warrior.  In the meantime, the Tennessee Vol made quick work of the Kentucky Wildcat.  Will the Volunteer be able to hunt down this North American Big Game animal?


Just like that, we move along to the Elite Eight of our tournament, with some pretty convincing victories by all of the winners.  We will see if Round 2 brings us any nail biters or Cinderellas.

With the NCAA Tournament in full swing, I figured what better time to go to the well and use the mascot deathmatch card.  This tournament will feature the mascots from the Sweet Sixteen teams, with each matchup mirroring the NCAA bracket.  There are a wide array of different mascot types in the tourney, so it should lead to some interesting results.


  1. Each matchup is a fight to the death.
  2. Competitors are allowed to bring any item that is generally associated with them.  Example: Batman would have all his gadgets, Link would have his sword, Indiana Jones would have a whip, etc.  The items the fighters have will be noted in the blog.
  3. Voting takes place from time the blog is posted until midnight ET that night.
  4. Tiebreaker goes to a coin flip.
  5. If you have any theories on how you think the results of a match would go, please add them in the comments section.  Bantering is half the fun.
