How sad.....the nation's historical center and we have to come up with a mythical monster. This is rocket-science at work.

I don't believe that it should have been changed at all. I don't even believe they named it because of a mythical creature...it was named after a roller coaster in Williamsburg that was named after a mythical creature...The NCAA has nothing else to bitch about...

They still do call them 'the tribe' which is odd to me...it's like what are they now..a tribe of griffins? lol...

I don't see it as an insult to native americans...there are nothing wrong with native american tribes...or being named after them...
