Tired of the antics of many athletes in NCAA Division 1?
Looking for collegiate athletics that retain the letter as well as
the spirit of the term “student athlete“? You need look no fur-
ther than the so-called “lower” divisions of college sports. I’ll be
doing a list of some of these teams with what I consider cool
nicknames for NCAA Division 2, 3 and for starters the NAIA.
If you’ve never heard of the NAIA it’s the National Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics. The organization’s slogan is “Champ-
ions of Character” and they pretty much live up to it.
However, for this list the only “character” I’m concerned with
is how colorful a character their team’s mascot is. Here they are
in no particular order.
