I generally agree with this sentiment, but this isn't a private enterprise--it's the official team name of a state university.

Fighting Tigers comes from the 141 F.A. from the Civil war. The Louisiana Brigade who's motto was "TRY US" Nothing generic about that.

I know I'm biased, but for historical reasons, I love 'Volunteers' as a mascot.

I always liked Idaho because their mascot is a crime.

re: Best college nicknames
Most of these mentioned in the thread aren't even nicknames? They're just the athletic team names.

Nicknames would be like "Bayou Bengals". Or like in UVA's case, "Wahoos" instead of the athletic team name "Cavaliers"
