Frontier Airlines is known for, among other things probably, putting animals on the vertical stabilizers of their airplanes (see image above). They've decided to join in on the fray of March Madness by having an online mascot competition, which will decide an animal that goes on their next plane or something. What the contest is isn't the point, it's the schools that are representing Wildcats all across the nation. Those two schools? Kansas State and Northwestern. No Arizona. No Kentucky. You know, schools that are actually good at basketball. Dear Frontier Airlines, you have made us mad
