Indian Slaughter Continues...

The University of West Gerogia killed it's old offensive mascot this week. Formerly named the Braves, the university has adopted the Wolves as it's mascot.

I'd rather they not have changed it but due to NCAA pressure, schools are being forced to move away from indian monikers.

I wish they'd have gone with something different. EVERYONE has a wolf, or a bulldog, or an eagle...

One semi-finalist was the fire-ants. I'd have liked that one.

There are a dearth of black mascots. But that'd be percieved as racist too I bet. Kind of like the Fighting Irish, or the Minutemen, or ... can we come up with positive black mascot?
