The NCAA has notified its participants that 18 of its colleges and universities, which have Native American named teams/mascots are no longer eligible for playoffs unless they cover the name/illustrations on their uniforms or change their nicknames altogether. In 2008 no teams will be allowed to be named after Native Americans. With one exception, I think the NCAA's PC stand is bullshit. Can high schools and pro sports teams be far behind? Are they ignoring the fact that several American States are based on Native American names? (Iowa, Illinois, Utah, the Dakotas, etc.) Here's the NCAA list of endangered 'species': Alcorn State University Braves Arkansas State University (main campus) Indians Bradley University Braves Carthage College Redmen Catawba College Indians Central Michigan University Chippewas Chowan College Braves Florida State University Seminoles Indiana University of Pennsylvania Indians McMurry University Indians Midwestern State University Indians Mississippi College Choctaws Newberry College Indians Southeastern Oklahoma State University Savages <--- change this one! University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Illini University of Louisiana at Monroe Indians University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux University of Utah Utes So, if they get their way and the team names change, what do you think they should be changed to? Tongue-in-cheek examples: Arkansas State University Rednecks Alcorn State University Honkies University of North Dakota Frozen Gonads Whadaya think?
