When USF held a contest to name its mascot, students sent in a wide variety of names.  The list was compiled by the president’s office.  While administration preferred Brahman Bull, the students voted for Buccaneer.  President John Allen’s administration had the name thrown out on a technicality and made the students vote again until Allen had the mascot he wanted.  Note that the Braham bull’s name back then would have been “Beefy” rather than “Rocky.”
