  • NCAA Takes The Florida State Seminoles

    FSU had threatened to sue.

    The NCAA says it did it after a review, and they recognize the unique relationship between FSU and The Seminole tribe.

            They can all petition, but I think they have to prove that the name isn't found offensive by the tribe they're named after.

              so what if it not named after a tribe and just "Indians" or something like that? Does the whole native group have to give an OK?

                I think SLU should seek permission from Eskimoes over the name 'Billikens'....

                    "It is our council that the name 'Redskins' is a revered and honored name in the eyes and hearts of the people...and that it signifies to them as to us the qualities of courage, self discipline, respect, kindness, honesty and love exemplified by generations of young athletes. We, the Redskins of Indian Blood, and our namesake...have a mutual and cherished heritage, may it be blessed...as long the winds shall blow." - Council of Chiefs of the Miami Tribes, 1972
