What say Allbuffs about suggesting a new name that better suits the Utes of Utah?
the milk drinkers
Horse****. **** the PC crowd. Perhaps they should change the name of the entire ****ing state.
The beehivers! The Joshua Trees or the Utah Yuccas! The Utahraptors or the mountainbikers!
Or name them after the official state snack. The University of Utah Jell-Os!
Because they're just a bunch of crackers who live in a salty basin.
the fightin mormons?
the utah 3.2er's?
Scarlet Beehive...that has potential.
The muss can wear their Rally Do when overlooking Buffs.
In a similar situation the Fighting Sioux are having to change their name. Interestingly the Sioux tribes are fine with it the way it is. Most of this **** is drummed up by big city, far left, wet farty white folk.
I dont think it's either far left or far right. Mainly just white women.
This is why it thrills me to no end that the team in the capitol is the Redskins.
Someone needs to find these women and kick them squarely in the term of endearment.
they needed unanimous approval from all the Sioux tribes... they didnt get it
This is the chance of a lifetime for utah. They have a reason to change that name which is stupid as ****.
So ****ing what. Then that tribe doesn't acknowledge the name.
They should change their name to the Utah Alcoholic Casino Moguls. Then it would only be racist to racists.
it was the damn ncaa's ruling what are you yelling at me about :lol:
I know, it just pisses me off to no end. Screw the NCAA; how is the Fighting Sioux any more racist than the Fighting Irish?
It's a big pile of bull**** and always has been. The large majority of Native Americans in North America have no problem with Native American nicknames and mascots. They are either supportive of these mascots and nicknames or are indifferent. The only people who are against such things are the self-righteous sensitivity police in the pc crowd and a few Native American activists who like to draw attention to themselves by attempting to erase themselves. We might as well change half the names of states, cities, towns, rivers, lakes, mountains, forests and whatever else has a Native American name. It's bad enough what was done to those great, proud people without erasing things that actually do honor them and provide mnemonics to their history.
If the Seminoles can keep their name and logo, there is no reason the Utes shouldn't (as long as they permission from the Ute tribes.
So do all the farmers in texas have to approve of the Aggies keeping their name?
Man, did you ever get that right! When someone explains to me that Fighting Sioux is racist and Fighting Irish isn't, then I might listen.
What about the Lime Jell-O's...it's apparently pretty popular there...
They could even get a pretty good deal on uniforms for that color scheme wearing Oregon's cast-offs...:rofl:
Right, we can be PC for african americans, mexicans, chinese, japanese, muslims but **** the native americans. :rolling_eyes:
Since they're pretty much the same as BYU Cougars but are the younger sister, it only makes sense that they call themselves the Pumas.
Historically Notre Dame was a school full of Irish Catholics so they were choosing to call themselves that. You can't say the same about Sioux at North Dakota.
the "Team to the West"
not really, that is dumb
FSU has a very good relationship with the seminole tribe. The NCAA tried to strip their nickname and mascot and the tribe stood up and basically said **** off. The chief actually comes to homecoming to declare the homecoming chief and princess every year and donates traditional seminole attire. Its really a cool thing they have down there.
Separate names with a comma.
