Now, I'm sure that you all know that I am just about the last person on earth who will defend Florida State - but I really think that this ruling is ridiculous and, yes, insensitive. I know that many school such as FSU and Central Michigan have taken measures to communicate with the tribes and communities so that their mascot is an accurate and positive symbol.

I understand that there are individuals who are offended and the history behind the mascots is not squeaky clean - but schools have taken real strides to be more sensitive to the native American cultures.

The ruling would not affect College Football, incidentally, in that Division 1 football does not have a post season tournament.
