Original SEC mascots

Yes, it’s still the off season.

Alabama had a dog, bulldog, actress (in the 1938 Rose Bowl - Dixie Dunbar), before settling on an Elephant.

I think we should have kept the actress theme going.

They had a couple of dogs and a donkey, as well. A regular Aggie Friday night.

She fits all the criteria for actress, elephant and crimson tide. Hire her.

UGA was originally "The Red and Black" similar to Crimson Tide or Tulane's Green Wave. But in the early 20th century a reporter referred to UGA's players as bulldogs, and it stuck and eventually became official.

LSU has always been the Tigers but the school colors were originally blue and white, albeit those were never used for sports as they used purple and gold for their first football game in 1893

There was also a brief time in the early 20s when we went by the wildcats.

Pretty incredible how the elephant on her outfit is actually life-size.

Amazing how she's still half the size of your average Louisiana woman.

Dixie Dunbar wasn't the first successful actress/ actor to come through Tuscaloosa and get noticed at the Rose Bowl. In 1925 Bama went to the rose Bowl and halfback Johnny Mack Brown, the game's mvp, was convinced to take some head shots by a Hollywood agent while he was in California. Brown would go on to star in over 60 westerns in a long acting career.

Pretty sure the first LDU mascot was a New Orleans “he/she” of mixed French and African descent.

Little known fact that we originally used the Jaguars moniker.

quote:

But sports soon followed and the first football game between the two schools was played Nov. 12, 1896 — a Thursday — at the Elmwood Fairgrounds. About 2,000 spectators paid 25 cents to watch the then South Carolina College Jaguars defeat Clemson 12-6.
