Oski is also another name for the god Odin from Norse mythology (see List of names of Odin) and was Argentine caricaturist Oscar Conti's nickname, as well.Oski or Oski the Bear (named after the "Oski Wow-Wow" yell) is the official mascot of the University of California, Berkeley and has been a tradition at the school since making his debut on September 27, 1941 during the football season-opener against St. Mary's College. Up until 1941, live bears were used as mascots. Nowadays, the bear's activities are overseen by the Oski Committee, which also appoints a new Oski whenever a replacement is required. Oski chugs beer-like liquids through a hole in his right eye, stands at 5-foot-7-inches, and wears a size 15 shoe.Oski's identity is protected by the Committee and wearers of the suit generally do not disclose their having worn the suit. There may be multiple members of the Committee who wear the suit depending on their schedules.
