    What Shall We Call Them?

    DG, JVB, Jake, Ejim, Godfrey, Scotty, Railey, Bubu, Eric, Drew, and Austin.

    Does anyone have a good nickname for this hard working group?

    Football had the Dirty Thirty. This may be the start of good bball times.

    Here are some possibilities:
    The Gritty Eleven?
    Hardluck Kids? (12 on the roster)
    Short Bench Wonders?
    Eight Schollie Scholars? (8 schollies)
    Fred's Fantastic Five?
    Great Eight?
    Eight Plus Three?
    Hilton Hustlers?
    Diante's Crew?


    DeMarcus - you missed out.

    Re: What Shall We Call Them?

    Is this really a team that we look back at ten years from now and know them by some sort of nickname?

    Re: What Shall We Call Them?

    Seriously though, let's not force a nickname. Some individual players had some, but it's a thing that should come naturally and organically. I know most fans loved that this team played hard, and the ones who do will remember this team...

    Does Johnny's first team at ISU have a nickname? I doubt it. How 'bout, simply, Fred's Firsts.
