Politically Corrected Team Names

There ought to be more techno-related teams since it's now "wrong" to be an Indian, Warrior or whatever. Teams names of the future will be of this ilk: the Danville Datastreams, the Burlington Binaries, and the Atlanta ATMs.

It couldn't be worse than the Flames or the Wahoos and it's way better than the "Fighting Christians." (An actual former team name of Elon College, now Elon University and also now the . . . Phoenix? How is that in any way germane to their location or histor . . . Whatever!)

The Salisbury Safety Deposit Boxes? The Jacksonville Jump Drives!

What will the mascots look like?

Since the un-official mascots of NC are the traffic cone and the traffic barrel, why limit new teams to just techno-related?

And the cheers we could come up with!
The Tarheel Traffic Cones gonna poke you in the eye!

The Barton College Barrels - barreling through!

Hey, how much lamer can you get than "Jaybirds peck the Bulldogs" OK, that wasn't official, but I do believe it was a Chai original ...

When in danger,
When in doubt,
Run in circles,
Scream and shout!
