In the event that a bomb cyclone comes through in July and obliterates all the Big 12 schools south of Iowa as well as Nebraska (#WeWillRebuild) and the Big 10 asks ISU to sub in in their place, how do you foresee us doing in sports in the B10 west this year?

So to shamelessly steal from the other thread would you take a shot in the thigh for a national championship and for which sports?

One of the most intriguing prospects (to me) in this years NBA draft is Jalen Lecque. His nickname is affectionately "Baby Westbrook" because of his style of play. It brought me to thinking...

Q) Is being called "Baby (someone else)" the worst type of nickname in sports? What is the worst nickname you have ever heard for an athlete? What is the best nickname you can remember?


for example:
My favorite - is Aquille Carr's "CrimeStopper" because his neighboorhood in Baltimore legitimately saw drops in gang related crimes during the hours of Carr's games.
The Worst - Craig "Eggs" Ehlo because he lost so often in 1-v-1 games (which they bet breakfasts) vs John Lucas

(BONUS) Most Creative - Corey "Bad Porn" Maggette. Hilariously given to him because: "As an overpaid member of the Warriors he was dubbed "Bad Porn" with the justification that there was a lot of penetration and scoring, but whoever was watching still wasn't happy with what they were seeing."
My favorite - The Padres once had a player named Doug Gwosdz. His nickname was eyechart.

Based on CCL performances from Sunday, it is clear to me that we have a team full of lottery picks for next year and will win the national championship easily without anyone needing to shoot themselves in the thigh. Once I come down from my unrealistic high I am currently riding, who is the best NBA prospect on next years team not named Tyrese?

Out of all of our former players who have never seen time in the NBA or g league, who do you think was most deserving at a shot in the league?

Hot take: The venn diagram of serial killers and people who eat their food in order one item at a time until it is gone without mixing bites is actually just a circle.

Once knew someone who ordered a rib lunch platter at Smokey D's who ate his food in this exact order: 1. Texas Toast 2. Cole Slaw 3. Fries 4. Ribs. HE ATE THE TOAST FIRST AND RIBS LAST!
