Six new college sports teams will be joining the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics). Those teams, in descending order of nickname awesomeness, are:

Location: Pasadena, CA 

Comment: How can you not love a nickname as cool and unique as Sea Beggars? And when you combine that nickname with this terrific logo it’s a safe bet PCC’s teams will become nationwide favorites in no time.

Sierra nevada college eaglesSIERRA NEVADA COLLEGE EAGLES

Location: Incline Village, NV

Comment: Welcome to Sierra Nevada College! It’s odd that a college that shines in such exciting sports has the most overused nickname in the world for its teams. Something like “The Snowbirds” might fit the various winter sports they excel in or maybe even “The Lakers” since they’re near Lake Tahoe.
