What if teams followed Louisville’s lead with the “The Ville” Jerseys?

Whether you are a Cards fan or not, I would hope that you absolutely despised the “The Ville” jerseys that they wore on the field Friday Night. Having “The Ville” on your scoreboard is enough, do you really need it on your jerseys, too?


The only thing I can think of that is remotely close to this fiasco is Missouri having Mizzou on their jerseys. And I’m so used to seeing Mizzou that it isn’t even that bad.

Anyways, can you imagine if other college teams followed suit with this strategy and just decided they could put whatever they wanted on their jersey?

Here is straitpinkie.com’s Top Ten list of the best “The Ville” style jerseys in college football.

10. Vandy – Vanderbilt (might be a good idea for them, it’s less nerdy)
9. War Eagle – Auburn
8. Testicle Tech – Ball State
7. The Noise – Illinois
6. The Dame – Notre Dame (sweet place in Lex. for music, bad for a jersey)
5. The Forest – Wake Forest
4. Bama – Alabama (no “The” needed)
3. The Cuse – Syracuse
2. Puke – Duke (just because nobody likes them)
1. The Nati – Cincinnati

Also, whilst watching the Miami(FL)/Oklahoma game at a local watering hole I found myself once again contemplating, “How is a Hurricane a Duck?” As well as what even IS Oklahoma’s mascot? Well, here are some similar questions, and this time they come with answers! Click here to read more…

Autumn Reeser…UH YUMP!!!

Lindley, Warford out this weekend, how can UK win without them?

    Unnecessary dig at Vandy, low blow.
    The closest equivalent I can come up with would be if Miami put “The U” on the front of their jerseys. Also, Minnesota could save some money if they put “‘Sota” on theirs.

    I’d like to point out, for Cincinnati, it would have to say “Nasty ‘Nati”.

    Also, unfortuantely, The Dame WAS a sweet place… it has now closed for the second time…. *tear*

    @Guy, if you listen to Michael Irvin, among others, it’s rarely “The U.” It’s “Da U,” where, apparently, an English class is not available.

    What’s wrong with it? Cool nickname….I like it

    Purdue = “The Due” (or how they’re playing lately, “The Doo.”)

    Fan apparel usually just goes for “CUSE” without the “the”. I’m surprised they haven’t done it on a basketball jersey yet. If Nike can convince them to do this: http://bit.ly/3xsrKL then CUSE isn’t too far away.
