College Football Nicknames ...

How many can you name in 10 minutes:

It is a couple of years old. I noticed, UAB is not on there, and they are using 128 teams; whereas there are currently 130 in the FBS.

The Average score is apparently 72%

Who, here, can best this score?

Good Luck :!:

I got 100% with 1 minute and 5 seconds remaining.

Dang it, now my fingers hurt :lol:

Up at the top it will tell you your score, the average score, and give you a one-liner on your proficiency.

It told me: Sensational! Your parents must be so darn proud of you.

\

I found out that you do not need to space between names, such as: Scarlet Knights can be typed scarletknights.

You do not have to shift capitalize names. And once you've typed a name in, it auto sends it, so you do not have to hit enter.

Also, when you type in a team's nickname, such as; bulldogs, it will auto fill every team whose nickname is Bulldogs.

Take heed --- typos will work against you; as my fingers skipped the O during my frantic key tapping of the word Cowboys, which cost me some seconds --- you do not have to space or capitalize, but you do have to type the names precisely {however, Utah is listed as the Utes, and not the Running Utes}

Coastal Carolina is the other team not on the list. So no UAB [Blazers] & no Coastal Carolina [Chanticleers].

Okay, that's all the more help I'll give you ... It's up to you lot to do the rest.

Again, Good Luck!

Andy, Barney, Aunt Bea, Helen, Ellie, Peggy, or Thelma Lou, Gomer, Goober, Howard and even Ernest T. Bass were all single. Only Otis was married and he stayed drunk all the time.

I should probably have mentioned that, since this is a few years old, Idaho is on this list [they are presently no longer in the FBS], and Liberty is not on this list.

So no ~ UAB Blazers, Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, or Liberty Flames.

And yes, to the Idaho [.......]

So I put down Idaho and not you want to give me minus points. You remind me Cane of Mrs. Mooberry, (real name) in the second grade. She was a toughie, she was...

They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.

I know what you mean.

When I was doing the schools by conference, I kept drawing a blank when staring at the empty columns, and going; "uh-oh shoot! Why can't I think clearly" ...

It's the pressure of the clock, I tell you.
