Shooting Fish in a NCAA Barrel

After this announcement, do you think the NCAA will be ending their relationship with Pontiac - one of 3 NCAA Corporate Champions? Currently, Chief Osceola is not ok, but Chief Pontiac is ok. I doubt that the NCAA has official permission from the Ottawa to use Pontiac.

Closer to home, I wonder if the Tennesse Volunteers (and Tennessee Tech, and MTSU, and UTC) are screwed as well. Might offend the Cherokee appropriating a team name from their old capital. Following Jay Mohr's lead and expanding the list of aggrieved classes, perhaps virgins (or the unmarried) take offense at Virginia Tech or UVA so we need to change those names as well.

Or perhaps the movement to ban all Indian references in sports is silly.
