Ohio State fan names lamb after running back Mike Weber

Now it’s your turn to pick an Ohio State-inspired name for a pet.

NCAA Football: Cotton Bowl-Ohio State vs Southern California Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

After winning the Big Ten’s Thompson-Randle El Freshman of the Year Award in 2016, Ohio State running back Mike Weber dealt with injuries and a crowded backfield during his sophomore campaign.

So, as he enters his third season on the field for the Buckeyes, he has more than a little pressure on his shoulders to get back to the bulldozing, power running that made him a breakout star as a freshman.

Now, not to add even more stress to his load, a lamb has been named after the Detroit native. Talk about responsibility!

Now, not to nitpick the young man’s fandom, but in my opinion, the best pet names are of the ironic variety; like Bark Twain, Chewbarka, Mr. Meowgi, or Neil Patrick Hamster. So, I probably would have gone with something like “Parris Lambell,” but I’m allergic to everything with fur or feathers, so what do I know?

Anyway, since we are still a few weeks away from the Buckeyes opening up fall camp, what better way to waste some time on a Monday than to pick the “best”— and I use that term very loosely— Ohio State-inspired pet names?

Vote on your favorite below, and feel free to suggest other potential names in the comments below.
