However, as to the second topic, we at LITG believe we are uniquely situated to offer thoughtful suggestions for how SEC teams ought to be re-named. After all, we all live in the city with the most politically correct, popular and food-based sports team name in the country: Why that would be our very own Montgomery Biscuits. Sure, some thought it was a dumb name that really came out of left field. But it has proven to be a marketing home run. The name flows off the tongue like soft butter off a hot flaky biscuit.

So there you have it. Problem solved. On any given Saturday in the not too distant future the Auburn Skies will battle the Georgia Silver Peaches or the LSU Gumbeauxs will take on the Arkansas First Cousins in contests that will not raise the hackles of Marlowe Thomas or anyone connected with PETA. No one will be offended except maybe those expecting to see some hard-nosed SEC wankerball. As my old coach would say: "Pin your ears back! Bow your neck and get in there and kick those Cuties in the navel!"
