Ok, well I have to pipe in here. The Golden Gophers are a pretty good Minnesota Mascot. Farther up in the frozen north, my High school mascot was the Moorhead Spuds (yes, a potato--it was usually orange and black--the school colors).
Also in Moorhead, MN: Concordia College, home to the Cobbers (usually represented by a cob of corn).

What can we say, nothing much going on up there besides growing food in the summer and keeping warm in the winter.
