Bully is the official mascot of the Mississippi State University Bulldogs in Starkville, Mississippi, and the name is given to both the costumed mascot and the live bulldog that appears at State games. The live mascot Bully is an American Kennel Club registered English Bulldog, and each dog is given the inherited title of "Bully". The name "Bully" is traditionally considered a title and not the official name of the specific dog that holds it. In 1935, Mississippi State head football coach Major Ralph Sasse acquired an English Bulldog in an effort to inspire his team. Mississippi State defeated both Army (a college football powerhouse during that era) and Alabama. After the team posted an 8-3 record, State fans agreed that bringing on a mascot had been a good move, and soon an alumnus gifted a bulldog named "Bully.” In 1939, Bully was struck and killed by a campus bus. The students held a funeral for Bully that was so elaborate it was covered by LIFE magazine. Bully I was buried under the bench at the Scott Field 50-yard line.
