2008 NOTY First Round: No. 3 Knowshon Moreno v. No. 14 Urban Couch

Welcome to Day Three of the 2008 NOTY Tournament. One note: First-round voting will continue until (and after) all 32 matches have been posted. So if you miss a game, go back and be a good citizen. Today's first battle: creative naming versus a Couch with a better first name than Tim.

2008 NOTY First Round: Bulltron Regional

No. 3 Knowshon Moreno: Superstar Georgia tailback. Routed Ynot Bubba to win Name of the Week. First name combines that of mother Varashon—herself named for a short-story character—and the word ``know.’’ Surname honors Pittsburgh Pirates centerfielder we affectionately dubbed ``Omar the Out-Maker.’’

No. 14 Urban Couch: Cherokee-descended art professor at West Virginia University who died last year. Wonder if he became frightened whenever he saw a burning couch.
