    Potential NBDL Team Names

    http://blogs.dmregister.com/?p=6240

    Nick Nurse mentions the following as being talked about for the team name... Iowa Thundering Herd, Iowa Corncobs, Iowa Invasion, Iowa Scarecrows, Iowa Diesel, Iowa Energy, Iowa Steel Sharks, Iowa Skywalkers, Iowa Pride, Iowa Green Wave.

    Personally I think they are all pretty dumb...except for the Iowa Corncobs which is just funny (and not a good funny).

    The Iowa Steel Sharks? WTF is a steel shark? Do we have a lot of those in Iowa??

    Green Wave?? Why are we trying to rip off a mediocre college mid-major's mascot name?

    Some of the other names being thrown out there are pretty bad too. Anyone have any DECENT ideas?

    Iowa Pride?
    This could be their team colors.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    There was a thread about them on here a month ago or so, and once I read something I usually remember it.

    Re: Potential NBDL Team Names

    I agree, none of those names sound even remotely good. However, all of the names do sound better than the Hawkeyes (what kind of name is that?)...maybe our neighbors to the east should change their name to the Iowa Pride and adopt chadm's new color scheme.

    Re: Potential NBDL Team Names

    Corncobs is just awful. If they're gonna go there with the nicknames, why not the Toothless, Drunken Hillbillies? The Des Moines Distillery? The Iowa Intoxicated?

    If I had a gun held to my head, I'd choose Invasion... just because it's unique and has a cool sound to it. (Not sure if Iowa has ever invaded anything except Native American lands though)

    Re: Potential NBDL Team Names

    gun to head : Iowa Energy

    Iowa is leading the ethonal and bio diesel charges, but is also the #3 state in wind production (Wind Powering America: Installed U.S. Wind Capacity)

    and per capita or square footage we are leading the nation.

    Re: Potential NBDL Team Names

    USS Iowa BB-61- Stockton, California - Recent News

    The Iowa "Big Sticks" after the USS Iowa.

    It's fitting for me, how about the rest of you guys? LOL

    One of the blog responders claims to have heard that the name Steel Sharks is in reference to the USS Iowa, but I couldn't find anything on that.


    Some people wear Superman pajamas. Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas.
