Why does the n.c. state mascot where a sailor's hat?
u.n.c.'s mascot also wears a sailor's hat.
I think that they wear a sailor's hat because they appear very neat and smart in the sailor's hat compared to other hats. It could also be something related to their past. You can contact them for details.
i think because north carolina has beaches... but im not sure... im not a UNC fan
