Nicknames and ribbing all part of the 'Duel in the Desert'.

Little brother ASU treks down to Tucson this Thursday to face big brother Arizona for the Territorial Cup. While thinking of the rivalry, and the history and legendary plays associated with it, my mind wandered. I began to think of the nicknames. The different ways the schools poke fun at one another. As with any big brother / little brother situation, nicknames and ribbing are all part of the deal.

So, in preparation of the arrival of our rivals in the nacho-cheese yellow helmets, I'm wondering what your favorites are. Vote for your favorite nickname for the Sun Devils, and leave any I missed in the comments. Also, recount any funny stories of Arizona getting one in on little brother. Like the web-site prank.
