He is from Nebraska, and the original name for the Huskers was the bugeaters. I have been using that as my fantasy football team name for years now.

What were the Nebraska Cornhuskers called before they became the Cornhuskers?
"The Nebraska football teams of the 1890's were called the Bugeaters in honor of the insect eating bullbat, a wide mouthed nocturnal bird which fed off the grasshoppers infesting the Nebraska plains"
