NCAA to warn then penalize schools for academic failures

Who died and left the NCAA in charge? The NCAA is meaningless for football since they do not control the $$$ from the Bowls and someday the schools will wise up and start their own post season basketball tournament. The tournament is the onlyl reason the NCAA exists and generates all their revenue.

Barry is 2 legit 2 quit

Shoeless Joe was found not guilty in the criminal case and was banned from baseball for life. Joe is long dead, the ban should be lifted and he should be in the hall of fame. Barry Bonds should be banned for life and once he is dead and gone then we can put him in the hall of fame too.

U. of Ill. Appeals to Keep Indian Mascot

Hey the Seminoles have a LICENSING AGREEMENT with Florida State. If they are not representing the Seminlole's accurately then they have legal recourse and do not need the NCAA. Have any of you PC folk seen the Chief at a Uof I game? Who gave the NCAA the authority to issue PC utimatums to public universities? The U of I is governed by trustees elected by the citizens of Illinois. From a legal viewpoint the U of I is the State of Illinois. Can the NCAA tell the State of Illinois how to run the state's business?

How do you make reparations for stealing an entire country? Of course the Chief is offensive to some (heck, Illini football is offensive to many) but some one is offended by everything. Through out the centuries one of the perks of conquering another people (and this includes the French taking Canada) is that the winner gets the spoils, including the right to name states and/or provinces, towns, rivers, and college sports teams after the vanquished.

I have not heard any of the PC complainers offer to give their homes back to the native americans and bug out to Europe. Unless you are native american or descendent of slaves, your family came here voluntarily and you are living on land stolen form the natives.

Hey I have an idea lets rename the state of Illinois in case some one is offended by a bunch of white folk naming the state after a dead tribe.

Florida State won its appeal with the NCAA for using Seminoles because they have a licensing agreement with the tribe. Its not the Uof I's fault that there are no Illini left to work out a licensing deal with.

The Illilni were not exterminated by the white man, they had been wiped out by other native Americans long before the white man showed up. But that misses the point. We stole their country, killed their men, raped their women and now somebody is complaining about The Chief? Get a life. Unless you want to get on the boat and go back to Europe and give the USA back to the natives,these complaints ring hollow.
