Salukis vs. Jayhawks: A Deathmatch

Yesterday I got an acceptance from the University of Kansas. I think I'm going to make decisions based on imagined wrestling matches between university mascots. So, who do you think would win: a weird, permed-eared dog, or a jaunty, mythical shoe-shod bird?

Me too!! The Jayhawk would totally win out!

Better make sure the match is on a neutral court, cuz the Salukis are tough at home, and so are the Jayhawks.

The dog would dominate

I think I'd have to go with the dog.

Hmmm. That's a tough call. I think it would depend on which version of the Jayhawk was bringin' it.

If it was the spindly-legged version, the dog would probably stand a pretty good chance. But the current version has those spurs, and he's pretty big. Not quite pteradactyl big, but still pretty big. I'm not so sure a greyhound-sized dog would stand much of a chance.
