Go Orange Blossoms!

The New Orleans Times-Pacayune had a nice article over the weekend about the source of many college nicknames.
One that stood out was Miami’s original name of the Orange Blossoms. Think they would have won as many titles with that name?
Another one I’d heard as a derisive nickname, but didn’t realize it really was their name at one point is the Nebraska Bugeaters. Anyone have an explanation as to why that was their name?
Thanks to FanBlogs.com for the find.
