NCAA Cracks Down On College Nicknames/Mascots

The NCAA announced today that mascots making Native American or Indian references will not be tolerated in postseason play. Schools will be asked to cover up any logo on uniforms or clothing that suggests such references.

One one level I agree with this. But as far as I know, the FSU Seminoles have the permissions from the Seminole Nation to use their name and the Indian mascot. So I do not think this sanctions by the NCAA should affect FSU.

This is beyond ridiculous. You don't name your team the Indians or Seminoles to look weak. You do it to look proud and strong. Over sensitive people suck.
