Nicholls State University in Louisiana are the Colonels. They are named after a Confederate soldier (and former governor) Louis T. Nicholls. The Colonels previous mascot was a genteel looking white bearded man in a vaguely Confederate gray uniform. Strangely, the NAACP took issue with that. They finally dropped the look in 2004. Now, they have a new logo. It's a different direction, that's for sure. I wonder what Stalin thought of the cover 2? Maybe they could be the commisars now?
