    Gary Dolphin and the nickname 'Whitey'

    I flipped over to the Iowa game to see how they were doing and I heard Dolphin describe Aaron White as Whitey. Anyone else think this is just odd? With the racial undertones of that reference I would think someone would suggest he stop, or is this just me?

    He nicknamed Gatens "Gater" and Woodbury "Woody", so I don't think Whitey is anything out of the ordinary.

    Wasn't Jeff Hornacek called "Horny" all the time?

    He really thinks out of the box, doesn't he? Is he a creative writing Professor Emeritus at the Iowa Writer's Workshop?

    At least he doesn't call Woodbury "Boner".

    And he could call white "Ginger" like a BTN announcer did last year.

    There's only ONE Woody :

    There is a difference in the Woodies though. One is long and hasn't quite learned to finish when he gets to the hole, the other has a knack for really pounding it in there and making the opponent sore the next day.

    Only if someone is stupid enough to make a simple name into a racist remark. I never would have took it that way
