The Sugar Bowl Is Getting Crushed For What Happened Pregame

first_imgA generic picture of three footballs next to a pylonThe Sugar Bowl is facing some serious criticism for what happened before tonight’s Texas-Georgia matchup in New Orleans.We had one of the most-viral mascot moments in bowl game history, when Texas’ live mascot, Bevo, charged Georgia’s live mascot, Uga.It was scary.Bevo is not here for this mascot meeting. #HookEm— Danny Davis (@aasdanny) January 2, 2019Thankfully, no one appeared to get hurt. It clearly could have been much, much worse.The big question: Who’s idea was it to bring two live mascots together on the field, with one of them being pretty dangerous?Where was Jack Hanna to tell ‘em it wasn’t a good idea?!— Michael Castillo (@MichaelCastFS) January 2, 20191. Whose brilliant idea was it to have them in the same area?2. Will PETA complain about humans corralling Bevo? Or will FWAA complain about Bevo threatening the media?#SugarBowl— Chris Yandle (@ChrisYandle) January 2, 2019Live mascots meeting each other on the field before a game is something that probably shouldn’t happen again.Texas and Georgia, meanwhile, are set to kick off at 8:45 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.last_img read more
