Seminoles, Illini, others face NCAA mascot ban
ADVERTISEMENT






By Eric Prisbell

THE WASHINGTON POST

Saturday, August 6, 2005

The NCAA will prohibit college athletic teams that use Native American images deemed "hostile or abusive" from hosting postseason events or displaying the symbols during championship competition.

The policy, announced Friday, will affect at least 18 schools the NCAA said use derogatory references, including the Florida State Seminoles, Illinois Fighting Illini and Utah Utes, three schools whose programs consistently have competed in NCAA championship events.

Walter Harrison, the NCAA Executive Committee chairman and president of the University of Hartford, said, "We're trying to send a message, very strongly, that we do not think these types of mascots are appropriate for NCAA championships, and to say to the institution that you have the autonomy to deal with it as you wish."

Native American activists hailed the action as a key step toward the elimination of Indian mascots at all levels of sports, from the MLB's Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians to the NFL's Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs to high schools.

But alumni of universities with Indian nicknames accused the NCAA of enforcing political correctness without consideration for their schools' traditions and the feelings of local Native American groups.

=======

Is the NCAA doing the right thing, or is this a case of P.C. running amuck
