NCAA REVERSES COURSE ON SEMINOLE BAN (AS YOU ALREADY KNOW BECAUSE ORSON SCOOPED STRANKO A MILLISECOND AGO)

New, 1 comment

Citing the fact that the sovereign Seminole nation has approved of the use of their name by Florida State, the NCAA has reversed course and removed the 'Noles from the banned list of names. The NCAA will review other schools with Native American inspired names on a case by case basis so the jury is still out on the Utes and the Illini.... but I'm pretty sure the Savages will still be on the banned list. It is nice to see that a little common sense can win the day from time to time. Now, can we talk about a playoff?

FSU is free to continue honoring the legacy of Chief Osceola through the sale of items like this.
