I am pretty sure there is a minor league baseball team called the Louisville Biscuits. (Not 100% sure it is Lousiville, but definitely a team named the Biscuits. No idea where it came from but a great team name.)

My alma matta UIC (The University of Illinois at Chicago) had hockey and basketball teams called "The Chicago Flames."

You have no idea how many homophobic slurs that generated from fans of competing teams!

You mean the Montgomery Biscuits. It's a reference to Southern Cooking.

Thank you for the correction! I knew Biscuits was there, but couldn't remember the city. Love the isotopes as well. Great names.

Before 1900, Nebraska football teams were known by such names as the Old Gold Knights, Antelopes, Rattlesnake Boys and the Bugeaters. In its first two seasons (1890-91), Nebraska competed as the Old Gold Knights, but beginning in 1892, Nebraska adopted Scarlet and Cream as its colors and accepted the Bugeaters as its most popular nickname until the turn of the century. Named after the insect-devouring bull bats that hovered over the plains, the Bugeaters also found their prey in the Midwest, enjoying winning campaigns in every year of the 1890s until a disappointing season in 1899.

After its first losing season in a decade, it must have seemed only fitting that Nebraska move in a new direction, and Lincoln sportswriter Charles S.(Cy) Sherman, who was to gain national renown as the sports editor of the Lincoln Star and help originate The Associated Press Poll, provided the nickname that has gained fame for a century. Sherman tired of referring to the Nebraska teams with such an unglamorous term as Bugeaters. Iowa had, from time to time, been called the Cornhuskers, and the name appealed to Sherman.

Iowa partisans seemed to prefer Hawkeyes, so Sherman started referring to the Nebraska team as Cornhuskers, and the 1900 team was first to bear that label.

Of course, the name caught on and became a Nebraska byword, eventually becoming the official nickname for the state.
