Subject: whole nuther ballgame

What is the source/background/history of a phrase like

whole nuther xxx? Someone asked me about his phrase today.

I've heard it all my life. I hear it in the English Department

here. I think that I have read some discussion of this, but

evidently I didn't pay attention.
