Time for a little fun. There's a ton of crazy names out there in our favorite sport. Some guys are named James. Other guys are called Equanimeous. Who has the most unique, funny or craziest name in college football? I don't know very many so I am interested to see what you guys can come up with. If you are able please include the team for which they play. One of my favorites is Munchie Legeaux from Cincinnati. Who ya got?

Indeed. At least go with something like "Better Than Average Hooker."

I was always fond of the name Storm Klein. Just sounded like someone born to be a linebacker.

I hope he makes it big, just so I can hear Brent Musburger say his name. No doubt this kid is SEC bound.

This used to be my avatar for fantasy football until a few years ago when Yahoo decided it violated their terms of service.

My all time favorite is Craphonso Thorpe, who played WR at Free Shoes U, then with the Colts.  Some lady actually named her kid 'Crap'.  His middle name must have been terrible,  or he doesn't have one.

This year is Equanimeous St. Brown (as alluded to in the opening post).  that's an all around awful name.  The fact that it stranger than most of the Key & Peele names is telling.  Go by 'Eric', or something,  Chief.

Not football, but in the 90s the Reds had an outfield of Young, Frank and Stynes  -- Dmitri Young in left, Mike Frank in center and Chris Stynes in right.

It was definitely referred to as the Mel Brooks outfield on occasion . . . and we Cincinnati sports fans know suffering nearly as well as our brethren from Cleveland.

This is not really related to the original post.

But I was on my way to the Horseshoe for a game and had left the GPS on so my 6 year old nephew could play navigator.

The GPS unit actually told us to make a left onto "Old and Tangy" Boulevard.

Not football, but many years back GWU had a basketball player named SirValiant Brown. About two years ago a guy I worked with turned out to have grown up with "Val" and told me his brother was "Lance", real name....SirLancelot Brown.

Not a football player, but God Shammgod, a PG on the basketball team from LaSalle University is pretty interesting.

Also liked Dick Trickle, the race car driver.

But, if we are limiting it to college football, I'll go with Jake Butt, Tight End, UofM. Too much hilarity in the name and position.

Sosa Jamabo is a recruit for class of 2015. Messiah DeWeaver also is pretty good. That's pretty good. I was always partial to Chubb Small.

Dee Liner, who plays D Line for Bama is too perfect. How about Robert Godhigh from GTech?

How about this one - Wonderful Terrific Monds. Seriously. How about Xavier Archangel just for a bonus. He's pretty conflicted.
