Not sure about the rest of you but I sure do appreciate a good nickname. Whats your favorite nickname from any Ohio State athlete?

I definitely liked the nickname, but (IMO), neither did great things.  Sounded good though.

Pretty basic, but the little animal was so perfect in so many ways, consider James family, style of play, talent. I think that is tough to beat

Freshman year of highs school playing tailback. Ran up the middle. Clothes lined, picked up and piled driven in to the turf WWE style by the biggest man I'd ever seen. It was Big Daddy. I immediately switched from tailback to safety. It was a business decision. I wanted no more parts of that.

I was looking to see if there was a true nickname for Bam Childress, aka Mr Spring Game, and found this gem
