    The Stanford Cardinal - and Other Mascot Names that don't end in "S"

    Louiville Cardinals
    St Louis Cardinals
    Stanford Cardinal?

    Where's the "S"?

    I noticed that Bama, Notre Dame, Tulane, Stanford and Syracuse are in a small fraternity of teams whose mascot name doesn't end in "S"

    Alabama Crimson Tide
    Notre Dame Fightin Irish
    Tulane Green Wave
    Stanford Cardinal
    Syracuse Orange

    How many more are there?
    Raj: Excuse me, I can't be drinking, I'm about to make an important scientific discovery here!
    Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    Two of them are colors and two are geological events. Notre Dame is the black sheep of the group.

    The more puzzling question is why their mascot is a tree. Sure hope they don't ever play Northern Arizona (Lumberjacks). Playing any dog named team probably makes them nervous.

    Georgia Tech can technically be put on the list since "The Rambling Wreck" is an official nickname of the school, but, as mentioned, it's a technicality.

    Pro-teams (Because this is always a good trivia question):

    NHL:
    Minnesota Wild
    Colorado Avalanche
    Tampa Bay Lightning

    Baseball:
    Chicago White Sox
    Boston Red Sox

    NBA:
    Orlando Magic
    Miami Heat
    Oklahoma City Thunder
