Kansas basketball beat Texas Southern in the first round of March Madness, but that wasn’t the case with the mascots. The Jayhawk was completely demolished in a dance battle against the Tiger.
Texas Southern is an HBCU in Houston, Texas with a staff of approximately 7,500. Kansas is a PWI in Lawrence, Kansas with a membership of just under 20,000.
Of the 7,500 and 20,000 students, only one has the honor of being the school mascot at any given time. This is often a highly coveted position.
Well, whoever it was in both costumes on Thursday night, they were able to perform at March Madness. But it might have been better if the Jayhawk had stayed home, because he or she got smoked.
When the two mascots met on center court for a dance battle, it was a blast. The Kansas Jayhawk went first and hit a wheelie with a very weak, nae nae whip.
Meanwhile, the Tiger pointed the Jayhawk as if to say “that fucking guy”. And then it was his turn.
The song went Swag Surfin’ and the Texas Southern Tiger went absolutely nuts. Looked:
Kansas takes its mascot very seriously and it even has a mascot trainer.
The responsibilities of the Kansas Head Mascot Coach are listed below:
Brian Carpenter has led the University of Kansas mascot team since April 2019, first as an assistant coach before being elevated to head coach in February 2020. His day-to-day responsibilities include the teaching the character to the mascot team. , walking, movements and traditions of Big and Baby Jay. It involves training and lots of costume walking! He makes sure the team maintains full-time academic status, gets good grades, and attends team practices at 5:30 a.m. twice a week.

It looks like Brian Carpenter should be working with his mascots on their dance moves. The Jayhawk was simply embarrassed.
