I guess that's a "soft" nickname? I haven't seen them as soft at least since last year. Unfortunate, not very good, underprepared occasionally but not soft. There's nothing soft about that song, there's nothing soft about this team and specifically this D and there's nothing soft about taking a high caliber offense and making them scramble everywhere to pull out a handful of first downs and 10 points.

The name, whether it sticks or not it's actually quite appropriate and the song works, it's a total get up and get hyped song. Wolf aside, I've never heard of anyone who didn't like this song. It's just sad to see so many people begging for an identity and when one comes along it's not good enough. Because of the word parade or something.

I tell you this much, if they continue to call themselves the Bulls on Parade, continue shutting teams down and lead us to some playoff action I bet you a million bajillion diggity dillion dollars that about half the people in this and countless other threads will come out of the woodwork acting like they came up with the name before it was cool.

I know there isn't much we can do about the nickname anymore. It's spreading like a STD at a ZTA mixer. However, I noticed that the classic nicknames rely on alliteration as well as some type of description of the home city. These may sound dumb or have already been suggested, but again its a moot point. I was just laying in bed and thought

Bayou Bull Rush
Space City Stampede

Corny i know

You should know using the term "gay" can lead to neg rep from some posters.
Not I, but a couple of posters get offended.
See the problems with Grams is she has grandchildren that use the word "ghey" all the time to describe stuff. She was attempting to be cool and use a teenage term, but being old caused her to misuse it.

My kids tell me all the time that I don't use emo correctly.

I don't know if the name is soft or gay or whatever, but it does sound awful friendly...

Bulls on Parade sounds like a children's book or maybe a tv show from nickelodeon or disney channel

Elephants on parade is a classic scene from disney's dumbo. Bulls on parade would fit nicely as the sequel

Bad nickname for a defense
