Things to check out
The Southern Miss mascot has been a golden eagle since 1972. However, Seymour did not get his name until 1984. The name is inspired by the 1984 World’s Fair mascot Seymore D. Fair and is a pun sounding like “see more of the campus.” During games you can see Seymour entertaining the fans on the sideline and pumping up the crowd at critical times, so keep your eyes peeled for him.Watch video
