    I'm down with Oregon as part of the team name. It's so diverse when you think of ecoregions.

    The question is... do you care if you replicate a college name?

    Despite my opposition to abstract names, the "Portland Underground" occurred to me this morning, and I kind of liked the idea. Except, I'd hate to be abbreviated the "P.U.", so never mind.

    This is not one of my own suggestions. A texter sent in the name The Portland Yeti(Oregon), with a call out to Sasquatch on Dusty and Cam yesterday morning. They both seemed to like that, Cam especially.

    What does everyone else think? Like it or hate it?

    i think as long as it not another pro team it is fine.
    There are numerous Pro Teams that have college team names. If Blazers is used.

    It isn't really. Just work on a different stadium. Timbers are playing this weekend for a championship.
    You can have it removed if you like.
