Reveille VII, the collie that has served as a mascot for Texas A&M University for seven years, is retiring. Purely as a protest for the firing of Dennis Franchione, we’re sure. A&M has appointed a committee to determine whether the next Reveille should be a collie too, or whether it’s time to go with a different type of dog. We’re here to help.

Fifi: She may look like pampered, soft, decadent Eurotrash, but put the A&M banner on her and she’s fearsome. Also, please change the A&M colors to pink and puce.

Reveille Toujours: Ditch that hayseed image in an instant with the elegant, cultured look a poodle provides. John Mackovic reportedly tried to replace Bevo with one of these back in his UT days.

Wrinkles: Just like the A&M football program, this Shar-Pei is saggy, baggy and bored. He also has the sad countenance that comes with hiring a retread like Mike Sherman as your head coach.

Da Dogg: Blinged out, pissed, probably full of steroids: The face of the future at Kyle Field. We’re sure he’ll get his degree, too.

Ol’ Baldy: College football is all about speed, and this guy here is all about aerodynamics. Not to mention showing off his doggie penis.

Triumph: The traditions of Kyle Field, College Station and the 12th Man are all very good…for me to (come on, you know the rest).

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
