a little clarification (kind of)


The Origins of the "Saltine Warrior" according to Wikipedia: In 1931, a Native American warrior known as Nathan March aka: "Saltine Warrior" became the athletic mascot. The name derived from an article describing an archaeological dig on campus allegedly uncovering the artifacts of a Native American warrior. The warrior was called the "Saltine Warrior" because of the abundant salt deposits in the Syracuse, New York area. The article was later revealed to be a hoax, but the mascot remained for next four decades.

that's not much scarier than the fuzzy orange thing. but he does have a weapon so bonus points for that. I do like the hoax though.
