BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: Nicknames Needed

There have been some great nicknames given to former and current UK players over the years.  All of the great teams have nicknames and many of the players currently in the rafters at Rupp Arena and some that aren’t have great ones too.  For instance:

Jamal Mashburn: Monster Mash
Jamaal Magliore: Big Cat
Demarcus Cousins: Boogie
Derek Anderson: DA
Antoine Walker: ‘Toine
Tony Delk: Double Zero
Rex Chapman: King
Kenny Walker: Sky
Mel Turpin: Dinner Bell Mel

And there are many more I haven’t included.  But, there are many guys who have played at Kentucky who I either can’t remember ever having a nickname or never were actually given one.  So, I am going to give you a list of 10 former players who NEED a nickname.  You can either put your best answer in the comments section or shoot me a message on Twitter.  The 10 best answers will win an infamous KSR Prize, which if you don’t know what that means, then ask somebody who has been here longer.  OK, here are the 10 guys:

Eric Bledsoe
Jodie Meeks (I think Mr. 54 is the obvious answer, but want to hear if there is something better)
Chuck Hayes
Gerald Fitch
Erik Daniels
Keith Bogans
Tayshaun Prince
Wayne Turner
Ron Mercer
Travis Ford

Ok, fire away KSR nation.
