A recent ranking by the Quality Products Logo blog had Notre Dame’s leprechaun mascot as the fourth-most offensive mascot in all of college sports.

The leprechaun has been a part of the Fighting Irish’s heritage for decades now, and the school doesn’t seem to have any plans to change it.

In fact, in a statement to the Indy Star, the school defending its use of the Irish mascot:

“It is worth noting … that there is no comparison between Notre Dame’s nickname and mascot and the Indian and warrior names (and) mascots used by other institutions such as the NFL team formerly known as the Redskins,” the statement read. “None of these institutions were founded or named by Native Americans who sought to highlight their heritage by using names and symbols associated with their people.

“Our symbols stand as celebratory representations of a genuine Irish heritage at Notre Dame,” the university said, “a heritage that we regard with respect, loyalty and affection.”

The school seems to be content with its use of the leprechaun and the “Fighting Irish” nickname, so don’t expect any changes any time soon!

The 3 mascots ranked ahead of Notre Dame on the list were Florida State’s Osceola and Renegade, San Diego State’s Aztec Warrior and Hawaii’s Vili the Warrior.
