Re: Your UsernameI got part of my name back around 1976, well before the gentleman from Stanford U's golf team took the PGA Tour by storm.
I was a Mizzou Tiger as an undergraduate. When I got in the Marine Corps, a lieutenant from Nebraska got on my case, taunted me as a "Tigger" and promised that his Cornhuskers would give my Tigers a sound thrashing on the football field. Two years in a row, Mizzou upset the 'Huskers in grand style. The Tiger name stuck.
Later, I was Siberian Tiger because I went on a teaching exchange to Russia.
Finally, I became WUTiger, as WU are the initials of the private university where I teach full-time.
