My Quest for the Perfect GameDay Sign

ESPN College GameDay is coming to Eugene on Saturday. Because we can’t all wave the Washington State flag, it is my personal mission to make a really funny/creative/smart sign to wave in the background; if I’m lucky, I’ll be shown on TV or my mom will mention me in her Facebook status.

Right now, I don’t have a ton of great ideas. I’ve considered the typical “spell ESPN vertically with a word for each letter” thing, but I can’t think of anything for the “N.” (And all I’ve got for E, S and P is “every Stanford player” or “each Stanford player.” Not exactly national television material.)

Of course, Stanford’s quarterback, Andrew Luck, has a last name that rhymes with “Duck” which could open up a lot of possibilities for me. I’ve thought about

Duck > Luck

or some variation thereof, but I’m not totally settled on it.

If all else fails, I’m just taking a sign that reads “A Tree is Not a Mascot,” because a tree and a singular noun (Cardinal) simply do not make a good mascot combo.

I’ve already heard of one idea that is utterly hilarious but slightly inappropriate. I’m keeping it G-rated here, but I will say that it has something to do with the nickname students and fans have recently given to our head coach, Chip Kelly (you can see it in this Twitter status that I found by Googling the phrase).

So with that, my search continues. Any (appropriate) suggestions?
