The 10 'gayest' mascots in the men's NCAA basketball tournament

Wichita State's WuShock the Shocker: Have you seen the nose on that thing? - Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY

From a Dancing Tree to a guy with a phallic nose, 10 mascots stood out for their (highly stereotypical) gayness.

The NCAA basketball tournaments are upon us, and that means it's time for college mascots to get TV time! Which is the gayest mascot in this year's men's tournament? We have 10 nominees.

Warning! Warning! We have fun with some stereotypes and sexual innuendo here! If you prefer to talk "straight" about NCAA mascots, head over to SB Nation's Mascot Death Bracket. And if you just want to focus on the basketball, be sure to join our bracket pool.

If you're still reading, be sure to vote for your winner or tell us which mascot we missed.

In addition to Wichita State's WuShock (above), we're nominating...

Ohio State's Brutus the Buckeye
Who doesn't want a giant nut on his head?

Stanford's Dancing Tree
You are the Dancing Tree, young and sweet, only seventeen. Dancing Tree, feel the beat from the tambourine.

SF Austin's Lumberjack & Ladyjack
Big arms and a cut-off tee. Plus a cute little number by his side -- something for the boys and the girls! But shouldn't it be Lumberjill?

Wofford College's Terrier Blitz II
I challenge you to walk Eighth Avenue from 14th Street to 23rd Street without bumping into a gay man walking one of these pups.

Michigan State's Sparty the Spartan
Because no Trojans made it to the Big Dance this year. Besides, you've see 300.

UMass' Sam the Minuteman
"Break me off, show me what you got, 'cause I don't want just one Minuteman."

UL-Lafayette's Cayenne the Ragin' Cajun
Only in West Hollywood is anyone more flaming than this guy.

Nebraska's Herbie Husker & Lil' Red
A match made in heaven. Somebody has daddy issues...

Coastal Carolina's Chauncey the Chanticleer
At the end of the day, he's just a fancy cock.

We so wanted to nominate Oklahoma's My Little Ponies, but we just couldn't do it.
