Stupidest Names For Universities
If there is a smack talk area, might as well.

Clemson - Sounds like a name for the school geek.

Auburn - Their name is a color of reddish brown and their school colors are blue and orange.

Northwestern - And I thought Big East and Atlantic Coast names aren't accurate anymore. Their name hasn't been geographically accurate since the Louisiana Purchase.

Rutgers - At least Clemson's in Clemson and Auburn's in Auburn. There's no Rutgers, NJ, Rutgers is in Piscataway. Clemson can't called themselves South Carolina since there is one. Auburn can't call themselves Alabama. There's no University of New Jersey or New Jersey University. So why call yourselves some name so no one would know where you are and no one knows or cares who Rutgers is?

Any others?

Northwestern dates back to that time. Wisconsin and Iowa were new states and Minnesota was still a territory.
