I know I'm completely biased but I think Elon has a pretty interesting name(s). Formerly Elon College Fighting Christians (and yes, it's completely a rip off of Notre Dame). Currently Elon University Phoenix.

You'd think that would be a local rivalry, but it's actually a 14hr drive.

RE: Rank the Top Nicknames in College Sports
Crimson Tide is one of the best

I'm an LSU alum, but cmon, how many teams have the name "Tigers"

Hurricanes is good, especially the Golden Hurricane

The Green Wave

Wolverines is good

Army Black Knights is better than Midshipmen (Sorry Navy). Why not Navy Destroyers?
