Deadspin recently released its annual bracket for Name of the Year, and because of the numbing boredom of the offseason, I decided it'd be fun to look at the best names on current Pac-12 football rosters. I picked the best name from each school and put them in a poll at the bottom of this article. Vote! Because it will probably be the only college football-related thing you'll get to do all week.
Sir Thomas Jackson: The only Pac-12 football player to have been knighted by the Queen of England (I'm too lazy to Google him and confirm this).
Scooby Wright III: "Why yes, I come from a long line of Scoobies."
Cayman Bundage: It's just just fun to say.
De'chavon "Gump" Hayes
Tyler McClure: "You might remember me from such football teams as..."
JoJo Wicker: I love anybody named JoJo.
James Looney: Just like James Loney, but crazier!
Bug Rivera: He's Riverboat Ron's nephew, which reminds me of this screencap:
Bryce Bobo: It's always fun to be reminded of Mystery Science Theater 3000 while watching a football game.
DeForest Buckner: This name wins by default, since no one else on the Ducks' roster has a good name. Be more fun, Oregon!
Larry Scott: Does any other conference's commissioner play football? Pac-12 > SEC.
Rommel Mageo: Maybe his parents should have picked a different WWII general to name him after.
Leon McQuay III
Beaver Ho Ching: You picked the wrong Pac-12 team, Beaver!
Bo Kimball: Go LMU!
Boobie Hobbs: This one is my favorite.
Drew Before: This name also doubles as a sentence fragment.
Psalm Wooching: He made it on to the Deadspin bracket, but how could they overlook the best name on Washington's roster?!
DJ Beavers: This also might be my favorite. I don't know what to choose!
Chris Dalrymple: He made it on here because he reminds me of the President of NBC on Seinfeld.
For me, the best two names by far are Boobie Hobbs and DJ Beavers, and after a night's sleep and meditation, I will choose which one is ultimately the best. In the meantime, vote for your favorite name! But don't just vote for someone on your favorite team, especially you, Oregon fans.
