Daily Dirt for Saturday, Aug. 12, 2023

They may never make the hall of fame, but they’re a sure-fire bet for the hall of names … Welcome to today’s three thoughts that make up Vol. 694 of The Daily Dirt.

1. Yourhighness Morgan? Boogie Knight?

Yep, those are actual names of actual people. And, yes, I assume your first thought is, “What were their parents thinking?”

The “College Football Only” website has put together a marvelous list of players on what it calls its all-time name team. Here is a sampling:

  • Bumper Pool, Arkansas linebacker (2018-22).
  • Pig Cage, defensive back for UTSA (2021-present).
  • Fudge Van Hooser, wide receiver for Tulane (2012-13).
  • Jim Bob Cooter, quarterback at Tennessee (2002-06).
  • Dude Person, defensive back at Arkansas (2023-present)
  • Wonderful Terrific Monds III (FIU, 2011-13). The third? There were two more of him in preceding years?
  • Godspower Offor, defensive lineman at Howard (2011-15).
  • Silverberry Mouhon, defensive lineman at Cincinnati (2011-15).
  • Lucious Pusey, Eastern Illinois linebacker (2006-08).
  • Decoldest Crawford, wide receiver at Louisiana Tech, 2022-present).

And in case you were wondering, Yourhighness Morgan was a linebacker at Florida A&M (2008-10) and Boogie Knight was a wide receiver at ULM (2018-22).

2. Words to live by.

3. It’s the weekend! Woo-hoo!
