All great Texas A&M quarterbacks need nicknames. Apparently. So what do we call sudden star Kenny Hill when we cannot bear calling him Kenny Hill?
KENNY FOOTBALL!!! #GigEm— Johnny Manziel (@JManziel2) August 29, 2014
No, Johnny, that's your nickname.
IF SHUT OUT: Kenny Nil
IF IMMOBILE: Kenny Still
IF SCRAMBLING FOR LIFE: Benny Hill
IF VOMITS: Kenny Spill OR Kenny Ill
No, Good Bull Hunting, those circumstantial nicknames are all very funny, but we need to assign one and stick with it.
Kenny Hill said of all the nicknames he might prefer Kenny Trill the most right now.— Brent Zwerneman (@BrentZwerneman) September 2, 2014
Hill hails from Southlake, Texas, just a few hours from Houston, where legendary rap group UGK popularized "trill," a term used to refer to one who keeps it real. We'll wait to see how UGK member Bun B feels about this, but it appears he was cool with the previous nicknamed Aggie QB.
Happy Birthday to a man that has been nothing but great every time we've crossed paths. @BunBTrillOG have a great one!— Johnny Manziel (@JManziel2) March 20, 2013
How does this work now? Do we vote on this? How many votes does "Kenny Trill" need in order to become official?
Update: Bun B has decreed:
Like the idea of "Kenny Trill" but I think @coachsumlin would agree one good game alone doesn't make you trill. He's on his way though!— Bun B (@BunBTrillOG) September 2, 2014
Update No. 2: However, Hill's associates say:
OC/QB coach Jake Spavital, when asked about Kenny Hill’s quick rise in popularity, just called him "Kenny Trill."— Sam Khan Jr. (@skhanjr) September 2, 2014
