Still raining

They're promising a long wait before postponing this one. If there hadn't been a rainout last night, I'm sure this one would already have been canceled.

I'm going to haul out an old rain-delay question from many years ago. It's been long enough that I'm not even sure of the full answer anymore. Take your best shot.

Name the NCAA Division I schools (football or basketball) whose nickname does not end in an 'S'?

(The last time I remember looking there were like 29, of which you should definitely know 14. Those numbers may have changed.)

When we threw that question around, Penn's official nickname was the "Red and Blue," though everyone knew them as the Quakers.

I see the nickname is now Quakers.

Oh, and you'd be surprised how many people in the state of Alabama would leave out Alabama.

Also, let us mourn the passing of the Hofstra Flying Dutchmen.
