Howdy, Richard. My name's Evan, pleased to meet you! The term "Cow Poly" is often used with a great deal of pride as a nickname for the school by people who remember their years there with great love. It's often drawn out into a school pride cry: "Cooooooooow Poly!". I'd say that the term "Cheeseheads" sounds worse, but is no less a term of pride in being from Wisconsin. See also Little Tomato (or Sacramento's more common nickname of Big Tomato), another term that may seem negative, but used with pride. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
