Serious football

In Texas, they play serious football. Even the mascots are serious: a cougar in Houston, a longhorn steer at Texas State, a bear at Baylor. Actually, Baylor has had a bit of problem with their mascot, not because it is a Baptist university, but because the latest outfit had an unfortunate quirk: his right eye looked to the left, and his left eye looked to the right. But the budget was tight and in all other respects the bear was an exemplary creature, ao they decided to put up with it.

In fact, they even named him "Gladly": Gladly, the cross-eyed bear.
