    That is the fighting illini logo right?

    You're saying all indian logos will be banned?
    The Indian tribes have been trying for years to get all use of Indians as team mascots banned. The UND "Fighting Sioux" have fought tooth and nail to keep their tradition alive as have the Atlanta Braves. But lesser teams have caved in. MANY of them!

    I'm glad the Redskins won't fold for a long time. Thats a good one. Canada tries to suck up to our natives by giving them a '15% off everything in the province card' and using the word 'native'

    Hey, I have a lot of respect for the AD of the Gophers.
    He took the hard stance of saying they will not be playing the Fighting Sioux because of their nicknamae except for hockey....Read....except for MONEY

    And lets not forget, they wont be carrying that stance in Big 10 games where they play the Illini.

    Hmm...wonder what would happen if the Seminoles want to schedule a football game with a big payout.

    Or, wonder what would happen if the basketball or football teams end up playing a team with an Indian mascot in the post season.

    Yes, I am a Sioux fan, and proud of it.
    I support the nickname, but I do not support the Gophers for coming up with a weak argument as to why they won't play the Sioux.
    If they want to make a stand, don't play any schools with an Indian mascot.
    Take the forfeit.
    Bet that will turn some heads.

    And as long as I am at it.....screw the NCAA for coming up with such a rediculous ruling.
    They wont even enforce it on all schools.


    OK....rant done......sorry
