Comment: It’s not a Halloween trick, there really is a Transylvania, KY and this is their university. With there being schools who’ve named their sports teams after made-up monsters (The Webster Gorloks) or use monsters as their mascot (The SLCOP Eutectics) I cannot believe the folks at Transylvania U haven’t named their teams something like the Zombies, or the Vampires, or the Werewolves, or the Ghosts, or the Jack-O-Lanterns, or the Scarecrows or at least The Torch-Bearing Mob Of Villagers. Heck, even a name like the Undertakers or the Tombstones would guarantee them all kinds of extra attention. Just ask the UC-Santa Cruz Banana Slugs.
