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!
So my kid is such an Ohio State Fan he named his new show lamb Mike Weber @mikeweberjr pic.twitter.com/hQmOTiEMqP— Janessa Dutton (@dutton_janessa) July 9, 2018
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.
