That list of suggestions the students voted on looked like they just picked their favorite professional sports teams. The Patriots and Eagles were choices! They couldn't have chosen something representative of the region? A little guidance might have helped here.

This mirrors how today's students are taught; pop culture, hip, but absolutely not history or tradition.

As far as Patriots, have you ever heard of Herkimer? It is a village named after General Nicholas Herkimer a heroic figure in the Revolutionary War who battled the British in patriotic defense of our young nation.

As far as Eagles, if you go down to the Mohawk River near the S Washington St bridge into Herkimer and sit quietly and don't look like too much of a dumbass a bald eagle may decide to reveal itself to you.

Ben Franklin wanted our national bird to be the
wild turkey, not the bald eagle. There are cer-
tainly a lot of turkeys in the valley, both wild
and otherwise. I think the mascot of the merged
school should be the "turkey." Your "nickname"
could then be the "gobblers" just like Virginia
Tech.

You can't throw a stone in NY State without hitting a spot where something happened in the Revolutionary War, that's true. However, since the name Patriots is so closely linked to New England now, using it for a CNY school feels out of place.

Thunder doesn't make much sense, either. OKC uses it because it reflects the weather in the Midwestern plains. Despite this past week, we're not a region known for its frequent thunderstorms. Snowstorms, flooding, sure. But calling us the Thunder says nothing about our area.
