Good quiz but one or two mistakes. Seattle University is the Redhawks not Roadrrunners. Also I did not see Eastern Washington University of the Big Sky Conference listed. Their mascot is the Eagles.

Thank you. They have been corrected. Always thought it was weird that two teams from the same conference were both the roadrunners.

Creighton Blue Jays, if you are going to add Blackhawks and Jayhawks, Iowa Hawkeyes, North Florida Ospreys, Youngstown St. Penguins, Green Bay Phoenix, Illinois St. Redbirds, Tennessee Martin Skyhawks, those are just a few schools you missed that re as known or equally known as the ones you put on here.

At the time I made the quiz, Creighton was part of the Missouri Valley Conference, which I didn't include in this quiz. They since moved to the Big East, so I'll add them. As for the others, they are not in the major conferences listed.

Uhmmm, Iowa Hawkeyes are in the Big Ten which is a major conference last time I checked, far bigger cnoference than some you have on here. It isn't technically a bird but you included Blackhawks, Jayhawks, etc. so they should be included

Missouri valley is more relevant than the sun belt or WAC with teams like northern iowa, who makes it to the tournament regularly and upsets teams often, bradley who almost beat michigan st, loyoal chicago who made it to the final four, and evansville who beat number 1 kentucky this year.
