My SEC nicknames? (Marty, you can save this in the FAQ)
First of all, I’m largely incapable of calling anyone or anything by its actual name. My cat is sitting next to me as I type this. Her real name is Suzie. But to me she’s Worm. I won’t bother explaining why, but there is a reason.
Now to the SEC:
Alligator hide is sometimes made into (very expensive) wallets. Thus Florida is the Wallets, or Future Wallets.
Mississippi is full of rednecks. Except at Ole Miss, where they’re Rebnecks. They got rid of that alleged Black Bear mascot, so that’s the ex-Bears.
Jawja is just the Southern pronunciation of Georgia. We’ll get to the SEC’s other bulldogs later.
KY Jelly is a brand of, uh, personal lubricant. Kentucky is abbreviated KY. Thus the Jellycats.
I stole Allbarn from Alabama fans, who use that word to deride their state’s cow college. Same reason I call Mississippi State “Moo U”. I could probably come up with something better given their propensity to ignore NCAA rules regarding extra benefits, but this will do. Something better would require more thought than I want to spend on the current home of Saint Gus of Hypocrisy.
Lack of thought is also why I haven’t come up with anything better for Vandy, except for occasionally Anchor Boys (their catchphrase is Anchor Down).
I have some other less family-friendly names for Texas A&M, but for this purpose Gaggies will do.
Misery is my corruption of the state located to our north.
Red tide is a form of algae found in the ocean. Algae is otherwise known as scum. Thus, the team located in Tuscaloosa is the Ocean Scum.
Gamecocks are chickens. Or poultry. Either will do. The rest of the league calls us pigs, so I can call them poultry.
Some Auburn fan once wrote a hilarious treatise on why LSU fans smell like corndogs, and how you should act when you catch a whiff of that corndog aroma. It’s rumored that he stole it from a description of Nebraska fans, but no matter. So now the purple and gold types are Corndogs.
Creamsicles? Look at this and tell me he doesn’t look like a giant creamsicle. Viles or Vomiteers also work. Of course, the home school of the Creamsicles is the Evil Orange Empire-Knoxville, or just EOE in SEC settings (the true Evil Orange Empire is located in Travis County, Texas).
Now we get to the other bulldogs. Male dogs are occasionally known to hump human legs. Thus, the inhabitants of Stankville, Mississippi, are Leghumpers.
