Warriors, Eagles, Vikings, we get it, UCSC was looking outside the box when it came to naming their athletic teams. With that said, we find it hard to imagine that calling yourselves the slugs is the best way to instill fear in opponent's hearts. Slow, lethargic, yeah, that's the qualities you want in your starting PG. Kids on campus love it though, they recently celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Slugs. "Slime 'em!"
