DEROGATORY SPORTS NICKNAMES YOU GIVE OTHER TEAMS

Posted on: February 9, 2008 7:08 pm
 

All right, let's try to keep this PG-13 rated (or milder), or use subtle asterisks or other such number-shift symbols.  What do you like to call opposing teams that you don't have to necessarily hate, but have to give them goofy to downright rude nicknames nevertheless?

And don't anyone get too defensive about these nicknames when it's about your team.  It's all in fun, no harm intended.  I grin when someone mentions the "Jail Blazers", because, well, it was pretty much true at one point.  So let's just shake hands, and come out swinging.  And buy each other drinks afterwards.

Let the fur fly!

One conference that doesn't even need a derogatory nickname is the Sun Belt Conference.  They are the joke of all collegiate sports.  P.U.!

Foreskins and Butt Pirates?  Nice...

I'd love to see what their logo on the helmet would look like.  Pretty damn hilarious, I'd wager.

While what True Rebel says maybe true, I have to claim "Cow College" for Aubarn. Bear Bryant made the statement after the infamous 1972 game when Aubarn returned 2 blocked  punts for TD's in the 4th quarter to win 17 -16: "We will never lose to that cow college again as long as I'm here."  Bama won the next 9.

Besides Aubarn lives up to the name soooooo well. War buzzard yall!

Don't want to leave ya hangin:

Atlanta Felons (its funny cause its true!)

Dallas Plowboys

Washington Foreskins

Cleveland Clowns

Tampa Bay Butt Pirates

I'd go on but probably get warnings for the next ones.
