Utah’s Dixie State University, now known as the Trailblazers, has found themselves in Twitter tiff with the Portland Trail Blazers.

The school changed its mascot to Brooks the Bison with the Trailblazers update Monday.

Administrators removed the long-time Rebel mascot in 2005 amid controversy surrounding its Confederate ties.

At the time, they replaced it with Red Storm, which didn’t resonate with students.

Here’s what happened when the school tweeted out the news.

Don’t know about you but we think Dixie State got the last laugh.
