    Yeah, I'm very curious as to what this will mean for my Seminoles. No word yet if they're on "the list".

    Sure about that?

    “What each institution decides to do is really its own business” outside NCAA championship events, Harrison said.

    “What we are trying to say is that we find these mascots to be unacceptable for NCAA championship competition,” he added.

    At least 18 schools have mascots the NCAA deem “hostile or abusive,” including Florida State’s Seminole and Illinois’ Illini. The full list of schools was not immediately released.

    My alma mater, as well as NRG's. Probably the only thing NRG and myself can agree on.

    The Miami University Redskins became the Redhawks several years ago
















    No, University of Miami is in Florida. Miami University is in OHIO!

    I've learned to look past NRG's liberal slant and only see him for his garnet and gold.

    I haven't figured out yet how a proper name can be considered "abusive or hostile", especially when you have the explicit approval of the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

    It will be interesting to see if FSU truly is on that list, and what will happen this year when they get turned down as an NCAA baseball regional host for the first time in a zillion years.
    I'm back!

    They musta liked "red" better then "skins". If you were from Idaho, I guess you could be the Patato Skins without offending to many peeps.

    This is the stupidest crap I've ever heard? I can't imagine how angry the Noles must be about thsi PC crap. The NCAA needs to go worry about somethign else like how corupted and hypocritical they are about student athletes etc...

    It doesnt look like it. It appears that the NCAA is considering how other Seminole tribes (not in FL) perceive the mascot and name.

    I don't know if it's completely ridiculous but...this part threw me for a loop:
    One school, North Carolina-Pembroke — which uses the nickname Braves — will also be exempted because Brand said the school has historically had a high percentage of students, more than 20 percent, who are American Indians.
    What does it matter if the school has a minority of students who are American Indians? Does that mean that if the school has at least 20% American Indians that they can keep a nickname or logo considered racially or ethnically “hostile” or “abusive” by the NCAA? If in fact it is hostile or abusive, then it should be all or nothing. Having more or less minority students doesnt seem germane to the argument?

    Or that damn BCS system!!! Imagine playoffs, UF vs. Miami, UCF (going out on a limb here) vs. FSU, Miami vs. FSU or any order you prefer. It would be florida universities 90% of the time. Sorry OU and USC fans your time in the sun is coming to a close, our talent pool is just too large. The title will be back where it belongs, Florida.
