I have to question on where you draw the line. So, what's next? Do we start changing the names of our cities and states? Some of them are named after native american tribes.

Yeah, I understand what you are saying. Good question, where do we draw the line?

But alot of the cities is where they were originally from. But, I'm not sure.

The Seminoles actually dont mind...they are involved with Florida St. and could care less....But if it offends the tribe get rid of it. Illinois made the right choice....GO HAWKS!

You need not worry about whether ND,s mascot (or what-ever) should offend you the NCAA PC police will decide for you

You got to be kidding. A hawk-eye. Is that an eye of some dead bird?
Or heaven for-bid could it be a character from Fennimore Coopers novel ?
Nah every Iowa fan must be a great Mash fan

I know what you mean! Thats like Swedish people getting offended by Swedish Fish candy and Irish people getting offended by Lucky Charms. People are too sensitive these days! I hope he dances again in the future...I heard they had a chance to appeal it.

Well, if it goes to the Supreme Court, they could act in favor of the students, because it affects their educations. The two guys who play Illiniwek get college music credit for the performances.

I agree with you Slammin--people are to sensitive and the world today is to concerned about offending people. It is a shame that the chief will no longer dance. It has been a great tradition at Illinois that was performed with class and respect.
