SI.com - NCAA Basketball - NCAA will allow FSU to use Seminoles nickname - Tuesday August 23, 2005 7:37PM
Looks like Warner's satirical piece worked! seriously, I'm glad they came to their senses on this. Beins a longtime FSU fan, I'm very happy to see this happen.
The NCAA will allow Florida State to use its Seminoles nickname in postseason play, removing the school from a list of colleges with American Indian nicknames that were restricted by an NCAA decision earlier this month.
The NCAA said it was recognizing the relationship Florida State has long enjoyed with the Seminole Tribe of Florida, which assists the university with its pageantry and celebration of its culture and supports the school's use of its name.
