South Carolina Gamecocks.

My middle school was the Bates Bantams. I don't think there are very many other teams or schools that us chickens for their name and logo.

Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Columbus Blue Jackets (we've seen American Revolution-themed nicknames and WW1-themed nicknames, but Blue Jackets has to be the only Civil War-themed nickname)

Tulsa Golden Hurricane

and of course, Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters. (Yes, I know, it's "Fighters", not "Ham Fighters", let's quash that joke right away)

You're (possibly) wrong.

I'm surprised you didn't think of Ole Miss.

But, you're right, yours will do far better.

You might add UNC to that list as well, depending on which origin of the term "Tar Heel" you choose to believe.

And isn't "Missouri Tigers" a Civil War reference as well?

Some teams in Arkansas (just because they come to mind) that I'm not familiar with anybody else having the same name.

Arkansas Tech Wonderboys (DII school. Girls teams formerly known as Wonderettes, now Golden Suns)

Henderson State Reddies (DII school)

Arkansas Travelers (AA team. Named after some song called the Arkansas Traveler. Lived here my whole life and never heard it)

Northwest Arkansas Naturals (AA team. Named in part after the movie and also for the state's nickname, the Natural State)

Southern Arkansas Muleriders (DII school)

Conway Wampus Cats (High school. Basically a panther with six legs)
