    Illinois-Northwestern Retiring Trophy

    ESPN - Northwestern Wildcats, Illinois Fighting Illini to retire Sweet Sioux Tomahawk trophy

    This is kind of sad. I understand the need to be politically correct but it's a part of our history. Sad.

    I've always thought that we need to get rid of the telephone trophy with MIzzou. It's really disrespectful to phones everywhere. And don't get me started on Floyd of Rosedale........

    I love it when WASPS tell minorities what should and shouldn't offend them. Good stuff.

    And what about the folks that run telephone wire for a living? Why should we compete for something that celebrates their failure? Why should they have to be reminded about it, especially if they play College Football on their console at home (which is where they're most likely to hear about it)? Why take the taunting into their own homes?

    I'm an Irish-American, yet Notre Dame gets to tell me I'm not allowed to be offended by their stereotypical portrayal of a drunken, brawling Irishman.

    After all, if you're going to be PC about one thing, you should be PC about ALL things...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    I love when PC people such as yourself act offended on behalf of something (which I'm assuming) you're not. Are you an Illini Indian?

    Anyways, I thought this was interesting:

    Fighting Whites - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If I was a team with a minority nickname, I'd just change it to something a little more PC. Like the Fightin' Whites. Of course, if that became the case, minorities would cry because their names were under-represented.

    Yeah I remember studying about the Sweet Sioux Tomahawk trophy in 7th grade history. It will be greatly missed.

    Re: Illinois-Northwestern Retiring Trophy

    As we get more politically correct and want to avoid hurting wolves, dogs, mustangs, sooners, longhorns, we may soon see team names like:

    The Pasta Pastels
    The Weedeaters
    The Sunset
    The Fishworms
    The Fightin Roaches
    The Orange Peels
    The Redwoods
    The Love Whales
    The Asparagus Feel Goods
    The Viagara Reactions
    The French Fries
    The GMs (paid advertising)
    The Gay Machine


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.
