Fran Fraschilla came up with nicknames for the White Platoon

Matt Jones look-alike Dave Flemming and Fran Fraschilla called last night’s game, and clearly did their homework on John Calipari’s platoon system. In fact, Fraschilla came up with an entire list of nicknames for the White Platoon, the graphic of which you can see above. The list is pretty ridiculous, as is the thought of an esteemed broadcaster like Fraschilla sitting in his office at ESPN trying to come up with it. Actually, that sounds like an excellent “SportsCenter” commercial.

I am a fan of “More Guys,” though.

    Why don’t they just leave it as it is, since that is the school colors? Blue and White platoon is fine.

    1 TBN & 2 TBN. 1st Tank Battalion & 2nd Tank Battalion. Could be 1st & 2nd Tank Platoon. Let’s stick with Cal’s moniker.

    We didn’t come up with a name for last years team, so I hope there will be for this years team.
