SC has a rooster for a mascot; they are known as the Gamecocks and their cheer is "Go Cocks!"
NC is the Tarheel state, so named because they produced a lot of tar, terpentine and other wood products for the naval industry. The workers often went barefoot and would get the tar on their feet.
The football mascot is Ramses the Ram. They had had a running back back in the 1920's who was described as a battering ram so the students got the school to pony up 24 dollars so they could buy a suitable ram mascot.
Michigan State's mascot is "Sparty the Spartan"
University of Pittsburgh has "Roc the Panther"
Tennessee has the Volunteer as a mascot but also Smokey the Bluetick Coonhound.
