    What's more degrading?? Being called a "Redskin" or a Corn Husker

    ROOSEVELT - While the NCAA has declared that the University of Utah is in violation of its new policy banning Indian nicknames that are "hostile and abusive," many in the Ute tribe for whom the school is named are angry that the U. is under attack.
    Irene Cuch, a tribal leader at the Unitah and Ouray Indian Reservation located about four hours east of Salt Lake City, said the decision should be theirs.
    "A non-Indian organization should not be the one to make decision. This should come from tribal leaders," Cuch said.
    She said she is proud of the university naming itself after her tribe as
    long as the school uses the name in a respectful manner, which she said the school has done. Early in the relationship between the tribe and the university, Cuch said, Ute leaders were shown a school logo that depicted a caricature of an Indian. The tribe objected, and the university immediately withdrew the proposal.
    "As long as it's not abusive or disrespectful, I think it's a good thing," Cuch said.

    No doubt it is PC. Remember, NRG is a Nole before his is a liberal! So PC is off the table for this subject!

    Although I agree that what I might think is offensive is not a good standard, I don't think it should just be the standard of the tribal leaders considering not every native american lives on the reservation (and is not directly represented).

    As an agnostic, I demand the New Orleans Saints give up that name...

    on second thought, I don't really care.

    Well if that's the case, then the SF Giants should change their name because of those challenged by heights.

    Governor Bush chimes in on FSU Seminoles and PC

    'It's ridiculous'
    Gov. Bush criticizes NCAA ban on FSU's nickname
    Posted: Tuesday August 9, 2005 8:54PM; Updated: Tuesday August 9, 2005 8:54PM

    The NCAA has ruled that mascots such as FSU's Chief Osceola will not be allowed to perform at games.
    AP

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Gov. Jeb Bush criticized NCAA officials on Tuesday for their decision to penalize Florida State for using an American Indian nickname and symbols, saying they instead insulted the university and a proud Seminole Tribe of Florida.

    The NCAA's finding that the school's Seminoles nickname is "hostile and offensive," instead of honoring American Indians has the opposite effect, the governor said, because the tribe supports the school's use of its name.

    Love Bianchi! You know amongst his satire, I do think Ole Miss should drop the 'Rebels'. I grew up in the South, but a direct reference to slavery times is a bit inappropriate. Didn't Ole Miss finally get rid of their mascot Coloniel Rebel a couple of years ago?

    My brother went to a high school called the "Beet Diggers". If I were a beet, I would be offended.

    Yeah, I figured you and NRG and some of the other TC'ers from up in the middle of state may have already seen that, but every once in a while he makes a cameo in the Sun-Sentinel. I catch his act every once in a while on Sunshine's Sports Talk Live.

    He's right on about the Rebels thing, that's no joke. Why didn't the NCAA take a shot at them? The majority of their football players are probably black, but yet it was up until a couple of years ago that Colonel Reb was running around the stadium and it was an accepted practice to bring your rebel flags to the game. What's up with that?
    I'm back!
