    The Fighting Okra.
    “For just in proportion as a people are ignorant, stupid, debased, corrupt, exposed to violence within and dangers from without, the power necessary for government to possess in order to preserve society against anarchy and destruction becomes greater and greater and individual liberty less and less, until the lowest condition is reached, when absolute and despotic power becomes necessary on the part of the government and individual liberty extinct." Jabez L. M. Curry

    The Tree isn't the school's mascot, the Tree is the *band's* mascot. Stanford doesn't have an official mascot.

    From the Stanford athletics site:

    There is no official mascot at Stanford University. The "Tree," which is a member of the Stanford Band, is representative of El Palo Alto, the Redwood tree which is the logo of the city of Palo Alto. Since Stanford University and Palo Alto are almost inextricably intertwined in interests and location, it is a natural outgrowth of this relationship. The tree still exists and stands by the railroad bridge beside San Francisquito Creek – it is the site where early explorers first camped when settling the area.

    Stanford teams had been known as the "Indians" before dropping that mascot in 1972.

    It's a typo. They're definitely the Terapins or Terps

    Most likely a typo that just left off the S. Terrapin is used without the S in some instances by Maryland, such as the "Terrapin Booster Club", but the word is pluralized as well.

    My past job had me covering Lamar county, including Millport, and I drove by a sign recognizing the Jr. Tide many times.

    I used to see that sign all the time -- my grandparents lived between Millport and Vernon.
