Goldie is just the "ambassador" for Tulsa football -- they already have a mascot, "Captain Cane" -- but he still joins the ranks of Georgia's Uga and Texas A&M's Reveille as college football puppies. And yes, I'm partial to golden retrievers, but Goldie is way cuter than those other college football dogs. He is supposed to learn how to grab the tee on kickoffs, which AWWWW PLEASE LET THE PUPPY TAKE THE TEES ON KICKOFFS I DON'T EVEN CARE IF HE'S NOT VERY GOOD AT IT AWWW AWWWWWWWWWWWWW COME ON LET IT HAPPEN IT'S GONNA BE THE BEST.
