I can't quite put my finger on why it irritates me, but I really dislike the thing Yale has done for a few years now of labeling each season's team by the number of years we've been playing. Don't know if it's elitist or a lame marketing idea or all of the above but I wish we'd stop.

I know that Yale doesn't give a damn what I think, but...

I think "Team 148" is stupid, too.

Tennessee got roasted on the internet last night for some dumb thing their (Bob Shoop-coordinated) defense is doing where someone holds a trash can on the sideline. The lettering on the trash can used the same "Team 1xx" nonsense. Guh.

Supposed to create a sense of belonging to a long, storied tradition.

When one of the main things you've got going for you is history, I guess you try to play it up as much as you can.

The kids seem to like it. Easy to hashtag on Twitter, distinct identity and campaign for each year.

Since Tennessee copied Yale's Down The Field (DTF) as their fight song, they might as well copy the "Team ***" thing.
