Something tells me that if things go sideways, that chain around the bear's neck is pretty much ineffective.
The Bears

Baylor mascots also have interacted with members of rival schools at football games, where the bears haven't always been able to stay out of the action.

Joe College once stretched out his paw across the playing field and tripped a Longhorn runner. During the season opener with Wake Forest in 1952, Topsy brought the crowd to laughter when he ran out onto the field and made off with the flag that had been thrown by the head linesman.

At the 1954 Texas game in Waco, Longhorn students paraded a 30-foot banner with the words "Ruin the Bruin" in front of the Baylor student section. Mascots Nip and Tuck no doubt took offense. They proceeded to break loose from their trainers and tear the banner to shreds.

Paul Bryant was the 11th of 12 children who were born to Wilson Monroe and Ida Kilgore Bryant in Moro Bottom, Cleveland County, Arkansas. His nickname stemmed from his having agreed to wrestle a captive bear during a carnival promotion when he was 13 years old.
