Vance Granville VanguardsVANCE-GRANVILLE COLLEGE VANGUARDS

Location: Henderson, NC

Comment: Kudos to the folks at this institution for showing some creativity with the name of their sports teams! The Vanguards definitely stand out and their logo is very, very eye-catching!

Quinsigamond College WyvernsQUINSIGAMOND COLLEGE WYVERNS

Location: Worcester, MA

Comment: Quinsigamond is a mouthful, no doubt about it, and when you combine that memorable school name with the memorable team name Wyverns you have got the kind of magic that Balladeer’s Blog loves!

Faulkner State Sun ChiefsFAULKNER STATE SUN CHIEFS

Location: Bay Minette, AL 

Comment: With a nickname as cool as Sun Chiefs and with a logo that is as eye-catching as this one I can only hope that this college adds football at some point in the future.

newlogo01.aiCHESAPEAKE COLLEGE SKIPJACKS

Location: Wye Mills, MD

Comment: Don’t call them the Flapjacks. Don’t call them the Blackjacks. They are the Skipjacks, one of the most strikingly unique team names in any division of college sports. The Chesapeake College teams take their name from the sloop-rigged sailboat, not the tuna. 

eastfield-harvesters1EASTFIELD COLLEGE HARVESTERS

Location: Mesquite, TX

Comment: The Eastfield Harvesters are so cool word is that Clint Eastwood is changing his last name to Eastfield. (I’m kidding – he’s changing his FIRST name to Eastfield)

Sumter Fire AntsUNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA AT SUMTER FIRE ANTS

Location: Sumter, SC

Comment: In a college sports world littered with far too many teams called Eagles, Tigers, Bulldogs and Wildcats it’s always a pleasure to find teams that have a certain flair and originality.

Yavapai College Roughriders BETTERYAVAPAI COLLEGE ROUGHRIDERS

Location: Prescott, AZ

Comment: The name Roughriders always conjures up images of Theodore Roosevelt’s Rough Riders from the Spanish-American War of 1898.

Hostos College Caimans squareHOSTOS COLLEGE CAIMANS

Location: Bronx, NY

Comment: The college sports teams so awesome they named islands after them! Just kidding. The Caiman Islands were – like the Hostos College sports teams – named after the amphibious carnivores.

Gillette College PronghornsGILLETTE COLLEGE PRONGHORNS

Location: Gillette, WY

Comment: I’ve always had a fondness for the oddly-named animals called Pronghorns. Those suckers can run at speeds over 53 miles per hour.

gateway geckosGATEWAY COLLEGE GECKOS

Location: Phoenix, AZ

Comment: They’re badder than Gordon Gecko! They’re cooler than the Geico Gecko! They’re more quintissentially American than the Gateway City! They are the one and only Gateway College Geckos!

Monroe Rochester College TribunesMONROE COMMUNITY COLLEGE TRIBUNES

Location: Rochester, NY

Comment: Obviously the Tribunes are named after the famous Roman Tribunes of long ago. What’s not obvious is why more schools don’t use such a cool name for their sports teams.

Bristol College BayhawksBRISTOL COLLEGE BAYHAWKS

Location: Fall River, MA

Comment: You almost can’t go wrong with any team name that adds the word “hawks” at the end.

Rainy River College VoyageursRAINY RIVER COLLEGE VOYAGEURS

Location: International Falls, MN

Comment: This institution’s motto should be “Don’t call your sports teams something boring like Eagles, Tigers, Bulldogs or Wildcats … call them something cool like Voyageurs!”

Waycross College Swamp FoxesWAYCROSS COLLEGE SWAMP FOXES

Location: Waycross, GA

Comment: This name takes the whole concept of cool-named sports teams to the next level! Everyone loves the Swamp Fox aka Francis Marion, a hero of the Revolutionary War.

Saint Clair College SkippersSAINT CLAIR COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE SKIPPERS

Location: Port Huron, MI

Comment: You can insert your own Gilligan’s Island comment if you like, but I find the nickname Skippers to be  very appealing and original.

galvestoncollegewhitecaps1GALVESTON COLLEGE WHITECAPS

Location: Galveston, TX

Comment: As always I’m a sucker for teams whose names reflect the character and history of their region and Whitecaps qualifies on multiple levels.

Northwest College TrappersNORTHWEST COLLEGE TRAPPERS

Location: Powell, WY

Comment: The Trappers sports teams often live up to the butt-kicking coolness of their name and are respected by all opponents.

Monroe College at Bronx ExpressMONROE COLLEGE AT THE BRONX EXPRESS

Location: Bronx, NY

Comment: Balladeer’s Blog loves team names that capture the feel of their locale in addition to being cool. The Express meets both sets of criteria. 

Bismarck State MysticsBISMARK STATE MYSTICS

Location: Bismarck, ND

Comment: Now THIS is what I’m talking about! With this institution’s teams you can tie in Otto Von Bismarck, Harry Potter or any other fictional magicians you prefer to use.

Corning College Red Barons 2CORNING COLLEGE RED BARONS

Location: Corning, NY

Comment: With their cool name and impressive athletic abilities, the Corning College teams leave many an opponent screaming “Curse you, Red Barons!” in vintage Snoopy style.
