Reader Sam Kegley recently sent me a question that I really don’t have an answer for and thought maybe you could help.
Kegley asked what the 2011-12 national championship team would be “officially known” as? He had seen 8th Wonders and The Undeniables. I’ve seen One and Doneables, Clutch Cats, Cal’s Pals, Unstoppables and even this clever one, Brow Beaters.
Kegley noted that even Kentucky’s Wikipedia entry has changed a few times with different nicknames for this sensational team.
So is there a consensus among fans for the team nickname? Is there one you like — or really dislike? What are your favorites?
Again, on a summer day in June as we await the draft, take a few minutes to think back on the championship season and relive the memories as you think about the nicknames.
So is the ’11-’12 team officially known as the 8th Wonders or The Undeniables or something else? Will one name become dominant? Kentucky’s Wikipedia entry has changed a few times since the title. I think I remember reading an article about all of the possible names for this team. If I’m not mistaken, the ’96 team was termed The Untouchables by Pitino–at least that’s what I remember. Anyone able to offer some clarification on this?
