Right and you feel free to research boxing history. You will see that there were two Black Mamba's before Kobe and one before DeAnthony Thomas. So no you can't make the one and only claim.

Walk down any street in LA and 99/100 people will tell you that the Black Mamba is Kobe. I don't care what Snoop says. When this kid gets a movie directed by Robert Rodriguez about him and it is called "The Black Mamba" we will talk. Until then Kobe will be know as The Black Mamba.

Who the h*** cares anyways? It's a nickname for a 19 year old kid who plays college football. We're talking college footbal on this forum, not Laker basketball. A lot of people in LA who follow college recruiting could tell you all about Thomas as the kid was an SC lock since Pop Warner.

But seriously, feel free to call Kobe whatever you want. Don't let me stand in your way.

You know, It would be nice if some of those teams in the top 5 would get eliminated. Boise needs to play someone and get eliminated. My Ducks did get beat by a better team LSU , but I think if we beat Stanford, we deserve another shot at the NC.

Also lets not forget his Nike clothing line named the same...
Nike Basketball - The Black Mamba - US

But who cares...

So, not really surprising to see OU axe murder Texas today. But, how in the heck was Texas ranked even close to the Top 10? Only Texas could rise so high and so fast beating creampuffs. Okie State will brutalize them even more next week.

Please fire Fisher and try and get Peterson. Our team is way too predictable. No wonder a team like Wake Forest beats us. What a joke.

Well...Boise is #5 wooping up on tough teams like Nevada, Toledo, that powder puff from last night...while my Ducks lose to #1 and are stuck at 9th

Didn't Oregon woop on that same tough team from Nevada? And at the moment Boise State deserve to be ranked ahead of the Ducks as much as it pains me to say.

Yeah, Boise probably deserves it, but they wont keep it. As soon as Standford goes down (or wins) to the Ducks, its going to shake up the top 10 big time.
