where did the nickname O$U come from?
Mike Lantry, 1972
it came from douchebags
Who cares where it came from, let's just try to avoid using it. Makes us look like Spartans or Buckeyes.
Well, the Latin alphabet, emerged from the Old Italic alphabets, which in turn were derived from the Greek and Phoenician scripts.....
Discovered by the germans and named O$U, which of course means a whale's vagina. Just kidding, I was just trying to impress you guys. I don't think anybody knows what it means anymore. Michigan scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.
because they pay their players.
As lame as O$U is it is still not as lame is scUM.

I always wondered why they were going on about the University of Manitoba like that. I just figured they were narrow minded idiots from Columbus who hated Canadians.
I saw "U$C" first.
From the Freep, MLive, and all the other message boards where the mentally challenged go to post and engage in juvenile flame wars.

I am not sure of the origin of the nickname but I do know that it wasn't over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.
Would love to hear some of our finest explain why these jacktards named themselves after a nut.
How's about the Almonds?
Neh, too faggy.
Okey dokey, then. Buckeyes it is!
