Cosmo the Cougar, the BYU football mascot, was performing a flip routine during a game on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018, when its head flew off.

After a college football mascot took a misfire to the groin , another mascot lost its head this weekend.

Cosmo the Cougar, the BYU football mascot, was performing a flip routine during a game on Saturday, when its head flew off. The man inside the costume – mascots aren’t real — landed, rolled and tried to hide his identity. Other members of the cheerleading crew quickly grabbed the head and huddled around the man under the costume.

User Kyle Marsden shared the video to the Twitter:

Katrina Marsden , credited with capturing the clip, joined Twitter this weekend and added: “This is worse than finding out Santa isn’t real…. my entire life is a lie.”

No. 20 BYU football team beat McNeese State 30-3 on Saturday.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
