    See, you ought to be proud enough of your school/team to proudly display them right out in the open instead of hiding away on your profile page.

    Is that Pitt? I'm not real familiar with a lot of the schools outside our conference and I'm not a huge basketball fan, so if it isn't an SEC school, I don't always recognize the logo.

    Come on people, it's college football season, let's get some school spirit going here!

    Pitt? PITT?? Don't you know a Nittany Lion when you see one??

    No, apparantly not. I told you, that if it's not in the South (or Southeastern Conference) or a rival like Ohio, then I probably don't recognize the mascot.
    And really, some mascots are more high profile than others!

    I apologize and thanks for the education Newf. I now know a Nittany Lion. But was I in at least the same geographical region?

    That would be The Ohio State University. Ohio (OU) is a small school located in Athens, Ohio.

    Oh, this season is shaping up already! Unk's got the gloves off!

    I beg your pardon, "a rival like Ohio STATE". It's just so easy to be a FLORIDA fan. We don't have to add more words to clarify who we are.
    (and its not that we are not CAPABLE of adding more words, or spelling them either, we just choose NOT too. )

    Re: How/Why did you choose your avatar?

    The finale of Big Brother UK was yesterday, and the girls in my old avatar got second! They were counted as one housemate by the way. I would have preferred they had gotten first, but what can I do?

    So since the show is over, I decided to change my avatar to my pre-show favorite of the new season of Survivor.
    Survivor - Christina | The Amazing Race - Dave/Rachel | American Idol - Hollie, DeAndre | Celebrity Apprentice - Aubrey | The Voice - Chris, Juliet
