Seminoles will be Seminoles

August 23, 2005 @ 5:56am

The NCAA removed Florida State's "Seminoles" from the list of team nicknames that was banned from post-season use. Originally, they had deemed the nickname hostile and abusive, but upon reviewing Florida State's unique relationship with the Seminole Tribe of Florida, they decided that it was not offensive. Wahoo! I mean, Osceola!

Ticket scalping, however, is still forbidden. Nice.

I'm glad this NCAA thing was reversed. First, I've been to a bunch of FSU games and it wouldn't be the same without Renegade, the tomahawk chop or the flaming spear. Second, this p.c. movement might have spread to other non-American Indian nicknames which are equally hostile and a few years from now I'd have to watch the FSU Debutants play the Florida Bunnies and the Miami Sprinkles. Where's the fun in that?
