Yeah, I could see a re-dedication to the stadium: Col. Harlan Sanders Field at Tyson Stadium

The Southern Miss Possums

They are indigenous to the area and right now our program is playing dead.

Or The Southern Miss Mosquitos because right now we suck.

That is really good. Unique, projects strength, flows with the university name. This should be your nickname.

Wow, I can't think of much that works for me at all. Someone said Copperheads for another school, I think that could work for us. Or Cottonmouths? Snakes aren't very marketable.

It came down to Blue Wave vs Owls for the school mascot years ago. With Atlantic in the name and the proximity to the beach I think this would of made more sense.

I thought your baseball team went by the blue wave years back? Was that just for a season?

Mean Green is so unique already, it would be hard to top. UNT is probably most famous for it's music programs, so something musical? The North Texas Resplendent Sound. Or the North Texas Ear Candy.

With player names today, someone should take the Fighten' Quans.

I think a few years ago we have 11 or 12 Quan variations on the team.

At least three snakes: Chattanooga Moccasins.

As for us, University At Birmingham Iron Dragons. That would work.

Personally, I like the sound of "Southern Miss Bearslayers." But that's just me.

Actually, not any longer. They succumbed to political pressure as did so many schools. They are the Mocs now. Short for Mockingbird.

I thought there was some law that said you could only change your name to "Eagles" when that happened.

Tech already has a great nickname, Bulldogs! It's simple, don't have to worry about the PC crowd...And, it's my understanding we had the nickname before Moo State and UGA adopted it. But, to play along...

Tech "Red Dirt" in honor of the bafoon from Penn State who got lost on the backroads and slid off the road in the rain. And then wrote an article about it in the Penn State school paper.

Tech "Pine Cones" in honor of our former rivals from Hawaii.
