    Yeah, I just can't do it. I just can't take these disgusting Gators seriously.

    As such, I will not be giving them a proper LAL this season... unless we meet in March Madness. Then, who knows.

    What I have decided to do is highlight one thing that Butler and Florida does have uniquely in common, their mascots. That's right, according to my fuzzy memory, I seem to recall that the Florida Gator mascot and Hink are the only two college mascots that were created by Walt Disney. Now, I can't seem to find anything to support my assertion online, so it might just be another Mandela Effect for me. You know, like that Sinbad genie movie Shazaam!

    The only thing that I can find online is here: https://www.butler.edu/ButlerBlue/Hink

    Does anyone else remember this? I mean I know there was that whole handshake deal with Oregon to use Donald Duck, but I'm certain this is true. Anyone know? So, with that said, and Gainesville's relative proximity to Disney World, I present Florida's Disney Doppelgangers!

    Sequels that outweigh the original....empire? Rocky II maybe? Young guns II?

    Ones that way missed the mark-airplane 2, Ghostbusters2, caddyshack 2, European vacation, another 48 hours.

    Actually it is the Oregon Duck and Hunk that were designed by Disney

    Sparky the Sun Devil was designed by a Disney illustrator and was maybe based on Walt.
