Go Seahawks!

  • I had no idea there was another "Seahawks" out there...The UNC WIllmingham Seahawks. Right now they are up by 3 against Duke at halftime. Charles Barkley made a joke before the game saying the only way the Seahawks could beat Duke is if Russell Wilson, Kam Chancellor and company show up :lol:

  • I looked it up a few months ago, there are actually 7 or 8 colleges/universities called the Seahawks.

    Wow! Might be a dumb question, but were they already named that before the Seattle Seahawks? I was under the impression that we created the name....

    And I bet most people didn't know this. There are also the Seawolves....The Stonybrook Seawolves. Go Seawolves!

    I dont know the answer to that, but here's the list:

    Broward College in Davey, Florida
    Northwood College in West Palm Beach, Florida
    St Marys in St Marys, Maryland
    Salve Regina College, in Rhode Island
    UNC Wilmington, in North Carolina
    Wagner College, Staten Island, New York
    Briarcliffe College in Sioux Falls, Iowa
    Los Angeles Harbor College

    All the Seahawks.

    There are also 3 school mascots named after our cousin the River Hawk.

    My personal favorite are the Campbell University Fighting Camels. And in Pehawks honor we have the Evergreen State College Geoducks.

    We aren't even the first professional team by that name. The Miami Seahawks were in 1946.

  • I was a BE Tiger, and we used to beat the crap out of the Seahawks. In my four years I think Anacortes beat Burlington-Edison once.
