    How many of you can come up with some ridiculous or questionable nicknames for colleges and universities around the country? I'm not trying to make fun of any college.....well, maybe a few, but we were tossing this around this morning before classes started and we really thought some were funny/dumb/ what is it/ or strange. If you can explain why the nickname, please do.

    I'll start......Minnesota Gophers. Now who would want to be a gopher, let alone a "Golden Gopher"? Mighty fiercesome creature, that there Gopher!

    Stanford Cardinal......IT'S A TREE FOR CRIPES SAKE!

    How about these:
    Toledo Mud Hens (a bunch of muchrakers)
    Chicago Cubs ( I'll get scared when they grow up)
    Wisconsin Badgers (not so much the team but "Bucky Badger"?)
    Milwaukee Wave (Hi there! Hey you...over here!! <<wave wave>>)


    By the way..does anyone know the difference between duh Bears and a pile of Bear Sh*t?


    Me neither :wink:

    trippster,

    The Toledo Mudhens were/are the minor league baseball team. The university of Toledo is called the Rockets. Both my Mom and Dad are graduates of Toledo U, and I was born in Mudhenville.

    I heard they were going to change their name to the "Chicago CHUBS!"
    Of course, that would have made their nickname "The Chubbies!"LOLOLOL!!! :lol:

    Can't agree on the Gophers. After trapping them as a kid you learn to fear the Gopher. I can only think of a hockey team the Albany River Rats!

    I guy I played football with plays at Whitier College and their mascot is, get ready for this, The Poets. I'm a duck, my instate rivals are beavers (the state of Oregon does have some lame nicknames, eventhough I guess nobody else has them, and the duck nickname has definetly grown on me) but "the Poets" top it all.

    That is funny coming from a state that gave us the Brewers (what?) and the Packers.
    Not only do the Packers have the worst name in the NFL but they sport those god awful John Deer uniforms to go along with it.

    Speaking of the Hawaii Rainbows, a few years ago Montana played at Hawaii and at the start of the game there was a beautiful rainbow that literally arched over the goal posts.

    And a funny story while on the plane over.....one of the booster club gals on board got up and alarmingly asked the flight attendant if they could turn the plane around. "I forgot my passport" she shouted!

    Hello!!!!!
