    I'll be rooting hard for Boise against UGA but I think they'll get worked.

    Nevada can't even afford their own nickname, Wolfpack has already been taken by NCS

    Nevada 2011 schedule - the horror!
    Sept. 3 vs. New Mexico
    Sept. 10 at Oregon
    Sept. 24 at Texas Tech
    Oct. 1 at Boise State
    Oct. 8 vs. UNLV
    Conference Home Games: Fresno State, Hawai`i, Idaho, Louisiana Tech
    Conference Road Games: New Mexico State, San Jose State, Utah State

    thats one tough schedule. You should make that Nevada is the 2011 NCAA champion thread already.

    Wolfpack sounds cool though.

    Not like many people are lining up wanting the name "Volunteers" haha.

    The name actually has significant meaning behind it. I take that over something generic any day of the week.

    I'm sure they got lazy socialist dogs in Nevada. OK I'm not sure but I believe them if they want to claim it.

    and yes the Volunteer nickname is unique, like the optic orange they wear, and historical. Fairly certain there is little history behind the Tennessee orange, but would love to learn otherwise.

    The colors of the American daisies growing on "The Hill"

    The name and colors are one of the greatest traditions in the country. Love it.

    I heard it's because Knoxville is full of the Volunteers of America thrift stores.

    No, there are a couple of Big Lots.

    Knoxville is actually a really nice town. The hipster asshat population has grown in recent years but it is still a good place to live. Knoxville and East Tennessee as a whole has an undeserved sense of self importance but I still like it.

    There's a lot more people in America shopping at thrift stores today than ever before. Columbus, Ohio included.
    That's a change you can see...

    BTW, your mid-western grade school attempt at humor FAILED...
