New Nicknames for Players to Spice Up Alabama's Football Season

Larry BurtonSenior Writer IAugust 1, 2009

When you write articles, sometimes your friends and relatives can be your harshest critics  as well as the source for your best ideas. 

My wife just saw one of my articles on Marquis Maze and said, "That's a cute play on his name, does he have a nickname?" and hence this article.

New nicknames all around!

Yes Marquis Maze does need a nickname.  How about "AMazing Grace"?

Julio Jones can now be the "Touchdown Toolio."

Greg McElroy can be "McTD."

Donta Hightower can now be "Donta Highpower."

Preston Dial could be "Preston Dialed up a Notch."

Darius Hanks could be "Hanks for the Memories."

Rolando McClain is now "Rolled over you McClain."

Mike McCoy is the "Real McCoy."

Colin Peek can be "Colin Streak."

Cory Reamer should be "Cory Reamed you a New One."

And Justin Woodall could be "Justin lays the Wood on Y'all."

The possibilities are endless. 

Or we could just just call them Crimson Tiders and play down the attention grabbing nicknames and let them be content with that title alone, but some of those are pretty catchy...
