Since Dan ginned up some controversy with his use of the word "Nits" to describe the Nittany Lions, we ought to have a poll to decide whether this term shall be included in the BSD Stylebook.
Oh, I suppose it could be an acceptable usage, just like we commonly see the Steels, the Eags, the Flys, the Sevs, the Pirs, etc. in print usage. Other teams will no doubt fear the egg of a common human louse.
Is it acceptable to refer to any Penn State athletic team as "The Nits"?
