Worst Mascots in Ohio

I know it is not pc ...but I am pretty sure Akron East...had the only nickname as the Orientals, before they changed it to be pc
Wildcat
Oh the PC police didn't do their due diligence on this one. Akron East Orientals were not a slang name for Asians. Rather they were named ORIENTALS after the near East. You know the pyramids, shphix, oasis and such. My dad's 1935 ring from Akron East shows all those. Too bad the PC police had their way and did away with a traditional name
I never realized "orientals" was used as a slur.
 
Not sure if it’s been said but the Medina buckeye bucks with a deer on the helmet is about as hillbilly as it gets add in the orange hunting garb colors and it’s even worse.
 
Saw this one from a Florida high school Bartow. The nickname is the Yellow Jackets but the school colors are University of Florida orange and blue. Real smart.
 
I know this is off of the Ohio Mascots theme but I thought to point this one out. Richland HS in Washington state. They are near the Hanford area that supported the atomic bomb development in the 1940s. The HS name is the Bombers but their logo is a mushroom cloud with a R at the base of it and which also adorn their letterman's jackets. The high school pays tribute to the B-29 bombers that dropped the bombs in Japan and they have several murals throughout the school of the Enola Gay and Boxcar. But what other mascot, logo, has a freak'n mushroom cloud as their mascot?
 
This is not in Ohio but in Florida in Port Charlotte

Don't think I've seen the Anthony Wayne Generals on here yet

Don't love their jerseys but I like how their helmets play into their name

Their band uniforms play up on the name well too

*EDIT* - I don't think this belongs on the "Worst" list at all - I think it's great. Fits well with the school name and the school's uniforms and branding constantly reflect the name

IIRC they did get "better" jerseys. Wasn't a fan of that black and blue scheme. Band unis are top notch though.
 
Man-O-War was Chesnut not red. However, certain flags of European navy Man-O-War ships flew a pink flag. Should we say Roll Pinky Roll or interject Chesnut? Just being a smart arse
Folks can call us whatever they like. After all, it’s hard to be humble when you are The Big Red!! Red or chestnut, Man-O-War was the inspiration for our mascot. After all, all Man-O-War did was….. WIN. ROLL RED ROLL

Tangentially related, a candidate for “worst mascot in Ohio” could be the Morgan(‘s) Raiders.

Similar to Benjamin Logan Raiders. Congrats on naming your school after a dude from Kentucky who burned Indian villages full of women and children for like a week and a half which reignited a war that led to several more deaths. Way to go, Benjamin Logan!

Oh, so that’s who Benjamin Logan (county’s namesake) was. Here I was thinking all along he was just some dude who had the first farm in Valley Hi 250 years ago.

Here’s Morgan’s uniforms.

The colors 🧐, when you think about what the mascot’s genesis was… kinda questionable! Especially for a Union state!
 
Not Ohio, but saw this yesterday: Lakeview OR. Honkers.
Never seen nothing like that. :banana::banana::banana:
But I do like the home grandstand :love:

Buckeye Central HS in New Washington is the same way but oddly try to look like Ohio State at the same time. Their girls basketball is also nicknamed the "Buckettes" instead of the Bucks.
