    Since Ole Miss is not satisfied with Colonel Reb or the name Rebels any more I found a list of names to help them choose a new one. The full list of college team nicknames is at

    http://www.smargon.net/nicknames/

    Below is a list of some of the more unusual names. My favorite is the Fighting Banana Slugs (Santa Clara JC)
    Not found on the list were the Scottsdale, AZ Junior College Artichokes and the Delta State Fighting Okra.

    Banana Slugs ---
    University of California-Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz, California

    Black Flies ---
    College of the Atlantic (Bar Harbor, Maine)

    Chanticleers ---
    Coastal Carolina University (Conway, South Carolina)

    Dirtbags ---
    California State University-Long Beach (Long Beach, California) (men's baseball only)

    Dons ---
    University of San Francisco (San Francisco, California)
    By choosing the name Dons Ole Miss could become the official college football team of the Mafia and make their opponents "an offer they can't refuse"

    Fords ---
    Haverford College (Haverford, Pennsylvania) (all teams except for baseball)
    Before choosing this name they should put it up for bids with Chevy and Dodge.

    Hardrockers ---
    South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (Rapid City, South Dakota)
    They could save a lot of money by eliminating all band members except for a 3 piece HardRock band

    Humpback Whales ---
    University of Alaska-Southeast (Juneau, Alaska)

    Hustlin' Quakers ---
    Earlham College (Richmond, Indiana)

    Kingsmen ---
    California Lutheran University (Thousand Oaks, California) (men's team)
    They would have to change the Alma Mater to "Louie, Louie"

    Lamps ---
    American Baptist College Seminary (Nashville, Tennessee)

    Medics ---
    Thomas Jefferson University (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

    Mighty Macs ---
    Immaculata College (Immaculata, Pennsylvania)
    McDonalds would supply the pregame meals

    Nads ---
    Rhode Island School of Design (Providence, Rhode Island)
    Can't you here the roar from the Ole Miss fans as they chant "Go Nads"

    Poets ---
    Whittier College (Whittier, California)

    Praying Colonels ---
    Centre College (Danville, Kentucky)
    They could sneak Colonel Reb back in to pray for a win.

    The Rock ---
    Slippery Rock University (Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania)
    Maybe The Rock could take some time off from professional wrestling the make a few guest appearances at Ole Miss. Nah - The Rock played college football at Miami.

    Stormy Petrels ---
    Oglethorpe University (Atlanta, Georgia)
    What the hell is a Petrel?

    Sugar Bears ---
    University of Central Arkansas (Conway, Arkansas) (women's team)

    Tomcats ---
    Thiel College (Greenville, Pennsylvania)

    Tommies ---
    University of St. Thomas (Saint Paul, Minnesota)

    Vandals ---
    University of Idaho (Moscow, Idaho)
    They could send out a team of Vandals to spray paint graffitti on the campuses of their road opponents.

    White Mules ---
    Colby College (Waterville, Maine)
    No Way - Name discriminates against black and brown mules

    Zips ---
    University of Akron (Akron, Ohio)
    Zip - For the number of SEC titles they will win in the next 20 years.

    Chanticleers ---

    I love the Chanticleers, I remember once in College they made the Basketball Tournament my buddies and I became huge fans.
    I even have a Chanticleer hat.

    By the way a Chanticleer is a Chicken I believe.


    Go Chanticleers...

    Maybe Auburn can add another name to their growing list of Mascots...

    Thanks, tigerfanintampa, Now I have enough knowledge about Petrels to bore anybody who cares to listen to tears with my knowledge of Petrels.

    So why do they give me strange looks when I order the 3 piece Chanticleer dinner at Popeyes?
