Pac-12 mascots and cheerleaders shun Stanford Tree in photo.

What can we learn from this photo of Pac-12 mascots and cheerleaders taken in Las Vegas for the Pac-12 men's basketball tournament? One is cheerleaders like furries mascots. The other is that absolutely no one in this picture wanted to be near the Stanford Tree. And can you blame them?

Look at the Tree, standing awkwardly by itself to the right of the assembled mascots and cheerleaders. Meanwhile, the other mascots are all grouped together, with cheerleaders drooping all over them. It's like that awkward cousin at the family reunion with body odor problems that no one is sure how he's related to him. (Or will openly admit to it.)

Even the Stanford cheerleaders, sitting at the right underneath Puddles the Oregon Duck, shun the Tree. Worse, they avoid eye contact with it. If this isn't an indictment, I don't know what is.
