WEBSTER UNIVERSITY GORLOKS
Location: St Louis, MO
Division: NCAA Division 3
Conference Affiliation: St Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference
Comment: Like the Banana Slugs, the Gorloks have gotten so much exposure for their unique nickname I didn’t include them in my original D3 20 Coolest list. Here they are at last, and if you haven’t heard, the Gorlok is a mythical creature invented in a contest at Webster U. It has the paws of a speeding cheetah, the horns of a fierce buffalo and the face of a dependable St Bernard. I would have thought the Webster mascot would have the height of Emmanuel Lewis, the stocky shoulders of Alex Karras and the wall-eyes of Susan Clark, but I’m kind of weird.
