    "Woke" Lady Bears

    The Baylor snowflakes have decided to stop calling the Lady Bears and just go with "Bears".

    Pathetic!

    No. Next you will see someone like Marcus Garrett or Will Richardson on their team.
    I don't mind being called far right.
    I have been right so far.

    They are called the 'Lady Bears' to DISTINGUISH them from the MEN'S basketball team, which is called the 'Bears'.
    This is to help separate the two teams. "Did you go to the Bears game last night?" "Which Bears?"...

    Live as if you were living a second time, and as though you had acted wrongly the first time.

    I'm with you, but we're not talking 'bout Baylor Deer, we're talking 'bout Baylor Bear so, boar and sow is more appropriate.

    Most people associate 'sow' with 'female pig'...NOT A GOOD NAME for a womens' sport team...just sayin'.

    Sure, no one would want to refer to the Lady Bears as the Sows.

    Since it appears that there is a need to differentiate the teams by their sex then it would seem to me to be appropriate to have them referred to as Sow Bears and Boar Bears. Unless, of course, you get away from the Bears altogether.
