None of these I'm afraid fall into that catagory.

IF the defense continues on it's current path, I'd like to see the return of The House of Pain.

How about "The Wrecking Crew"? It's not like the Aggies will be using it in the next 10 years...

Let's just leave it alone. I want to see more long-term success than 10 games of one season before thinking about names and bragging rites. This D gave up 40 points to Brees not too long ago, even if they are getting better with time. I prefer the way this whole team is taking care a bidness and NOT sayin' $^!+.

because they are contrived. Good nicknames come after someone does something noteworthy or epic. Epic in a bad way or good way. We called this team all kinds of derogatory names once they were an epic fail on defense...it's just a matter of time before this team starts to get a National identify as a tough defensive unit. If we continue to play well someone will say something at the right time and that something will stick. I don't think the Orange Crush, the Steel Curtain or the Monsters of the Midway were named 10 games into the very first season they had a dominant unit (as a general example).

I'm still trying to get used to calling them things like "consistent" and "dependable".
