While Pitt and Cincinnati are currently playing in the snow, it seems that someone got a bit too carried away playing with the snow.  The Cincinnati mascot was detained by police and ejected from the stadium on Saturday, and had to be replaced.  Why?

Because he was throwing snowballs into the crowd, and when police asked him to stop, he didn't.  Something that then causes this to happen.



If that's not the greatest picture from the 2010 college football season, then i don't know what is.

Now with video!  Though be forewarned, there are some naughty words, so it's NSFW.

I can tell your a cop, and this is why no one likes cops, because cops arrest guys for stupid things like this. So you need to grow up.

Ok I will detail for you all what was going on today, because I was there.  First off the Bearcat was at the top of the student section on a raised part and there were some Pitt fans throwing snowball at him.  He returned fire.  They tried to get him down and he pushed a security guard who went mall cop on him and he called for backup and along with the Cincinnati Police Department he was arrested.  People were having a good time some stupid people threw some on the field.  I mean we aren't from Cleveland.  We don't throw snowballs or batteries or milkbones on the field.  The crowd was sparse I mean there were three snowmen made at today's game I saw.

The mascot for any athletic program is supposed to represent the school.  I don't think UC teaches students to disregard the police.  The young man made a poor decision and he was held accountable for it.  End of story.

For everyone blasting the cops. You are part of the problem. I learned at a very young age when a cop says to do something you stop or you will end up in jail. As my mother said a long time ago if you get arrested you better hope that they keep you there because your will have it far worse when your father picks you up. He just got what he desevered. Kids today are too spoiled and think that there are no consequences for there actions.

Stupid the cops did this....but when they ask you to stop something, you stop. Mascots dont get special privelages with the law. Pretty funny though.

As ridiculous as this may be, the cops did what they were supposed to.  I know its as dumb as snowballs but when the police tell you to stop doing something disruptive and you don't listen, what do you expect to happen?  It's dumb he got arrested..but it's even more dumb he can't listen.

Rumor has it that the Cincy mascot will be censured.  He will have to face all the other mascots in D-1 football, and they will tell him how bad he is, and he will return a changed mascont, although never admitting his guilt.
