   Tiger coaches and players have, in some cases, colorful nicknames.  What makes nicknames even more interesting is if you know the story behind the granting of a nickname.  Some stories are obvious, such as a person with red hair being nicknamed "Red",  Some stories are not so obvious.  One example would be what happened regarding James Johnson (1970) who always seemed to be in a good mood and laughed at seemingly everything.  One day a group of players were gathered together in the presence of James and the conversation turned to the topic of his continual good mood.  The statement was made that James would probably even laugh if you said the word, "Shoehorn".  In response to that statement, James promptly laughed.  Thus was born the nickname James "Shoehorn" Johnson.
