This team has definitely earned nickname status. Any suggestions?
I like .......... "THE IMMORTALS"
“People who live in the past are afraid to compete in the present. There's no future in it.” -- Sparky Anderson
Or maybe ........ "Awesome Adolescents" ... maybe "The Adolescent Assassins" ... "Cal's Kids".
"The Immortals" is still the best I can come up with.
I could live with "The Young Guns ".
Only thing that didn't happen was Duke vs Kentucky in elite eight game.
Other than that,
Indiana, Louisville, and Kansas.
The creating one and done class, going against "you can't win with one-and-done."
That's funny, my Dad sent me a text at the end of the UofL game that said, "It is our destiny, Luke" - A play on the Darth Vador quote
How 'bout 'Cats?
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
One reason I like "The Immortals" is because it's a 2011 movie title. "The Untouchables" was so catchy and memorable mainly because of the Sean Connery movie and Elliot Ness and his group of federal law enforcement agents. That's why I also like "Young Guns", it's an already well known movie title.
I think it was Pitino who coined "The Unforgettables and Untouchables names, and Tubby who referred to his team as the "Comeback Cats". So maybe Cal and the boys will come up with their own name to use during the banner hanging ceremony.
I've seen "The Undeniables" already thrown around which I like.
What about "Kiddie Cats"?
You're an ***, relax and enjoy it. Quit telling people what to do and how to celebrate. Someone WILL come up with a nickname for this team and it will be remembered. This is a legitimate topic/thread.
I overheard someone call them "Dream Teens" at the grocery tonight.
Not a big fan of team nicknames because they're all forced these days. A nickname should come because some characteristic was evoked, not just because we feel obligated to name them. That's why we always end up with these Un- names.
I heard someone offer up "Magnificent Seven." That may get lost on some of our younger fans, but it's good for the type of team/rotation they had.

Since they brought us back to the promise land I say they are the redemption cats
I like the Undeniables because this team has a resilient nature and even when they got down they fought back so hard! I am really going to missing seeing this team play together.
Or how about the Relentless Runts?
How about Kamikaze Cats? They bombed you from every which way this season, and you still couldn't stop 'em.
By what scale are they runts?
The Giant Scale? haha.
Its a relevent current topic almost overshadowing this teams accomplishments. Therefore why not give it a screaming middle finger:
Team Won and Done.
Clever stuff here.
I LOVE that. Excellent Nickname!!
How about Team Digger and RMK lick deez nuts.
Sorry mods. I will keep it clean. I just had to.
Gr8tness seems to be the best, IMO. You see it all over the place the search for gr8tness, etc... Why not let that be their nickname?. I'm not a fan of forced nicknames either but I'm sure someone will come up with something.
I was thinking about the age but I realize my error. How about The Young & Relentless (kind of a play on words)
