    Iowa NBDL Team Name down to 5 choices (Vote)

    DesMoinesRegister.com

    The team has been narrowed down to 5 potential names:
    - Des Moines River Rats
    - Iowa Thoroughbreds
    - Iowa Scarecrows
    - Iowa Corncobs
    - Iowa Maize

    Voting will begin today at NBA Development League: Iowa and the fan reaction will play a role in determining the team name selected.

    Personally, I think all 5 are horrible. Why not the Iowa Slack-Jawed Yokels? Or Iowa Hillbillies?

    If I had to choose between the 5, it would be between the Scarecrows and Corncobs just because they are so stupid it's funny.

    These range from embarrassing to tasteless. I'm voting for tasteless with "Thoroughbreds."


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    I agree that they all stink, but if forced to choose it'd be close between the River Rats and the Maize...I think Maize actually sounds cooler, but will lead to uber lame uniforms.

    THESE ARE FREAKIN TERRIBLE.

    How about the Iowa "No one cares" or Iowa "Gone in a year or two's"

    Corncobs? Are they freaking serious? That automatically makes us the laughing stock of the league.

    Scarecrows & Throroughbreds? Ehhh.... Is Iowa known for it's horses?

    River Rats would be good, for a little league baseball team.

    Actually, I kind of like Maize - at least best of the five. Although people are so dumb they be asking why we named our team after a month of the year....

    Those are the top choices that they could come up with? What did they do, hire a New York ad agency who probably thinks Iowa produces potatoes? Sad.

    I submitted the following...

    Iowa E-85's
    Iowa Corn Stalkers
    Iowa Red Bulls
    Iowa Green Machine
    Iowa Pioneers
    Iowa Aerial Assault

    Guess I won't be winning the prize.

    We could, as a collective CF group - decide the fate of the team name. We took on the likes of MSU, Ariziona, etc - and were victorious.

    This is a walk in the park.

    Methinks we should take the worst one and vote repeatedly for it. If they're going to select the worst options for fan voting - give them the worst of the five I say.

    Maybe those guys who developed the university of iowa arena league unis in the late 90's could work something up. You remember, the ones that had the feathers or wings (or whatever the hell they were supposed to be) on the shoulders

    John Deere green colored shorts and warmup pants, and maize colored tops and warmup jackets, divided up to look like corn kernels. Then we could have headbands that look like corn tassle.

    The Scarecrows?? oh please, can I wear the mascot outfit???

    Somebody during a KXNO call in last week mentioned Redhawks (kind of a play on ISU red and iowa hawks). That I liked.

    Personally, I think Des Moines Cyclonic Cardinals has a nice ring to it. Keep the colors Red and Navy, and I don't have to buy any new fan gear....
