The Heidelberg Student Princes

via Newmark's Door, a wonderful exploration of strange college sports team nicknames.
I had a time as a college sports coach, at a University where the men's teams were the Warriors, and, back then, the women were the Athenas. (Surely some harmonization has set in since then.) SillyWife had the wonderful inspiration to hear "Warriors" as "Worriers", which is likely more descriptive of how players really feel. Somehow I think "Worriers" might be a tricky problem for cheerleaders.
