A candid, no holds barred look at those screwy college nicknames. You know the ones. Hoyas, Tar Heels. Yeah. Those ones.

Ragin Cajuns

Ok, forget about the fact this is a goofy name. Ragin Cajuns ? Simmer down now, boys. Let's examine their symbol. A fleur-de-lis surrounded by flames. In heraldry, the fleur-de-lis stands for purity and light (and also the symbol for France). This equates with ragin' cajuns? To me, it equates with gaudy wallpaper and the boy scouts. Where's the "ragin'" in that? They'd be better off with a small domestic cat as their symbol. At least with a kitten, there's the potential to inflict harm.

[I'm on a roll, that's why there are so many entries for today. Plus, I'm still miffed about that whole Kornheiser article.]
