The power of Utropolis couldn’t overcome bad play

The power of Utropolis couldn’t overcome bad play

The Oklahoma State Cowboys have adopted a toy dinosaur named “Utropolis” as a secondary mascot and rallying point. This dinosaur has made cameo appearances in interviews, on twitter and everyone in the dugout. Utropolis has been a spark to the team in the postseason, but its power seems to have run out.

In the College World Series, the Cowboys won its first two games but pitching and hitting went cold when Arizona took the field against OSU the second and third time. Jensen Elliot pitched game 2 vs. Arizona and gave up three runs in two innings. The OSU bats stayed cold as they only scored three runs in the 9-3 loss. Big 12 Pitcher of the Year Thomas Hatch took the hill in game 3 and exited after two innings and giving up four runs. The Cowboy offense could not string together enough hits and only scored one run.

The Cowboys will likely retire Utropolis, considering the team found it in a parking lot after the regionals at Clemson.
