NCAA backs down on banning "Seminoles:"
Florida State, the top athletic school of the 18 listed, threatened a lawsuit after the list was released, citing that the Seminole Tribe of Florida announced in June it supported the school's use of its tribal name.

The staff review committee found the relationship between the university and the Seminole Tribe to be a “significant factor,” the NCAA said in a news release.

Silly issue. On the one hand, the easily offendable among us object to nearly everything. On the other hand, why would you want a mascot that offends lots of people? There are no winners here.
