When nicknames go bad

It started with this post over at The Joe Cribbs Car Wash about Auburn’s “Spread Eagle” (ugh) vs. Tennessee’s “Clawfense” (which sounds clever only if you’re a UT fan):  dueling offensive nicknames!

Well, they’ve upped the ante considerably over at Third Saturday in Blogtober, with this post christening several of the offenses in the SEC with nicknames.  It’s funny.  It’s funny enough that I laughed at the reference to Georgia’s offense being run out of the “DU-I formation”.  Take a look and offer your own suggestions.

    South Carolina – “Cockless” (No QB)

    Vanderbilt – The “Commode Attack”

    Auburn will be “Spread Eagle” if they can’t find a Quarterback. That’s all I got.

    this article is worth reading if for no other reason than it bestows the best nickname I’ve ever seen for a coach: henceforth, so long as he remains at Arkansas (which might be until Labor Day), Bobby Petrino will be known as “Pignocchio.” Genius.
