With the colleges and universities I cover all pretty much on summer break right now I figured I’d temporarily replace my Cool-Named Team feature with Cool-Named (but non-existent) Sports Teams based on bad movies. These could become the new mascots for teams that currently have one of the four most overused nicknames in college sports – namely Eagles, Tigers, Bulldogs and Wildcats.

Division: Black and White
