    Jeremy Adams on twitter is suggesting that Dinwiddie now be nicknamed "The General" instead of "The Mayor".

    Thoughts?

    If he leads us to another Pac-12 title, he can be the General.

    It doesn't make sense to go from Mayor to General. I think it needs to stay with the political positions.

    Did not think this would be a contest. I get the floor general thing, but the Mayor has a larger meaning.

    I don't know what language that is, but I don't like it. Let's keep it to English.

    It's bad enough being French, but to be Canadian on top of it? Man, that's brutal.

    Goose and I thought The Prez (for President) sounded good when we realized how much he has grown since March at the practice we went to.

    Here. I want to say it was 'Nik who pointed out that the kid knows EVERYONE from his AAU days. So he was "The Mayor" because he had a rolodex of people he could call on.

    City Councilman is a demotion.

    And it wouldn't be "Governor". It would be "Gov'na"

    It is bad mojo to mess with the nickname gods. When you have one that works, you stick with it.

    Fwiw, it looks like The Mayor has agreed with his nickname.
