Greeson: Another obtuse miss by PETA, more words to be banished, Saturday star

One of the intensely discussed issues of the bowl season was Bevo vs. Uga.

Yes, the 1,600-pound Longhorn from Texas against the 60-pound bulldog from Georgia. It was a video clip that thankfully did not produce blood or a bulldog pelt. Let's face it, as one-sided as Texas' upset win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl was, Bevo over Uga is a textbook definition of a mismatch. One of Bevo's horns likely weighs as much as Uga.

Everything ended peacefully. Well, until PETA poked its beak into things.

PETA is now calling for colleges to do away with live animal mascots. Why, you may ask?

Not for increased safety on the sideline. After all, Bevo almost impaled a photographer on the sideline as it was swinging at Uga.
