Lets see just how many thin skinned whiners I can offend today

I came on this NCAA PC gag order and wondered how many colleges might be affected, so I "yahoo'ed" about (lots of dead-ends) unil I found this site with a pretty comrehensive list.

Where to start? Hmmmm, , , well this time it's "The NCAA banned the use of American Indian mascots by sports teams during its postseason tournaments, but will not prohibit them otherwise."
-snip-
"Nicknames or mascots deemed "hostile or abusive" would not be allowed on team uniforms or other clothing beginning with any NCAA tournament after Feb. 1,, , "


Since the NCAA is being so picky about Amerinds, lets look at some of the schools mascots, shall we?
Braves ---
Chieftains ---
Chippewas ---
Choctaws ---
Moccasins ---
Mohawks ---
Redmen ---
Red Raiders --- (?)
Runnin' Utes ---

Warriors ---


What will be under the P/C tommihawk next?
religion?

I could go on filling this space with names that could, will, might be banned because "someone' is offended by it. When will enough be enough?
When all teams have the awe inspiring mascot like:
