How new North Carolina athletics director Bubba Cunningham - given name Lawrence Richard Cunningham - adopted his childhood nickname as his official, professional name:
"My first name is Lawrence or Larry, same first name as my dad. Bubba kept us apart. I was a short, fat little kid; my sisters couldn't say brother, and it kept us apart. So I went to college and I had an opportunity to maybe go by my middle name. Well, my middle name is Richard, so I would have been Richie Cunningham. And I said that's not going to do it either. So I ended up taking the lesser of my evils and stayed with Bubba."
