“We are the notorious Block N’s.”

USA Today has a story about the three NCAA programs that currently don’t have official nicknames.  One of the three, Hollins College, is a women’s school that has never had a nickname.  (Now there’s a great trivia question for you.)  The other two were among several schools that were directed by the NCAA to drop references that were deemed hostile or abusive to Native Americans.

They’ve taken their time finding a replacement.  And judging from this list, they’ve been wise to do so.

    Shouldn’t Stanford be on that list also? They dropped the name Indians back in 1972. They’re referred to as the Cardinal, but that is just a reference to their school color similar to calling UGA the Red and Black.
