Tiger Trouble (Part 1 of a 2-part series)

This is a 2-part series involving Tiger mascots because Syracuse conveniently plays two schools with the nicknamed "Tigers" in a 7-day span and because I like to run certain EDSBS memes to the ground.

As Otto the Orange arrives in Columbia, Missouri, he runs into one of his mascot friends, Truman the Tiger.
