Join me. This is a pressing issue, which came to a head yesterday at the University of Georgia:

Two 18-year-old men have been barred from University of Georgia property for two years after they were charged in a drunken attack on UGA mascots Hairy Dawg and Spike during a basketball game...

Georgia was giving the Jacksonville Dolphins a 93-77 pounding before a crowd of thousands Tuesday night at Stegeman Coliseum when the teens ran from their seats to the court floor and, according to a UGA police report, attacked two UGA mascots.

UGA students Tyler Martin, dressed as Spike, and William ``Trey'' Dunn, dressed as Hairy Dawg, were knocked to the hardwood floor. In the process, the tangle of teens and mascots took down three young girls who had just finished performing in the halftime show.

Ahh, to be back in school. Thanks to commenters tdau97 and Dkshideler for the tip.
