It's standard practice in university fundraising to name something—buildings, streets, water fountains—after your most generous benefactors. But what you could possibly name after someone whose last name is Fail? Alabama has one idea....

The University of Alabama is set to honor Mobile native James M. Fail by placing his name on a prominent fixture at Bryant-Denny Stadium. A donation by Mr. Fail to the Crimson Tide Foundation will result in the visitors' locker room being officially named "The Fail Room."

Believe me, no one wants to tip their hat to Nick Saban less than I do ... but that's freakin' brilliant. Mind games: Ur doin it right.
