Comment: There is absolutely no truth to the stories that Alverno’s teams used to be called The Disco Inferno and had a character in a Saturday Night Fever outfit as a mascot. Seriously, though, this nickname is so cool it just barely missed the cut in my D3 20 Coolest List.  And you can insert your own Dante’s Inferno joke here. I like this approach of having your sports teams rhyme with your institution’s name. If we apply it to other schools we’d have the Embry-Riddle Fiddles, the Sioux Falls Screwballs and the Mid-Continent Incontinents.

  1. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
