How about.... - 01-02-2012, 10:03 AM

..in homage to the Fighting Irish, they could call themselves the "Prosletizing Mormons."

I just cannot figure out why anyone wants to use a name that involves some cultural group regardless of tradition. And some of it is particularly heinous like the WA Redskins...that one is the absolute worst.



PS: Second worst...the Semenholes with that tomahawk chop garbage makes me want to puke up my gefilte fish!

On a more serious note.... - 01-02-2012, 10:07 AM

Here is a great article about animals in the Wasatch Mountains...if they cannot come up with something more appropriate they need their heads examined...what a treasure trove of ideas:

Quote:
Buffalo, elk, moose, big-horned sheep, deer, and antelope frolic about in their natural environments in northern Utah, as the Wasatch Mountain Range serves as a wildlife refuge. Take a spontaneous stroll into the mountains and you will guarantee yourself a sighting. A winter walk on the west side of the Oquirrh Mountains, near Erda, Lakepoint, and Tooele, will get you a glimpse of a mule deer or elk. Cruise around Bear Lake with your camera cocked and you'll probably catch sight of moose cooling themselves off in the glassy, aquamarine water. You can also head to Bald Mountain, near Strawberry Reservoir, to possibly see some mountain goats.

While you'll of course see antelope at Antelope Island State Park in Great Salt Lake, you'll also probably spot deer, bobcat, coyote, and elk. But Antelope Island State Park's real reputation banks on the over-600 bison (descended from 12 that were brought to the island in 1893). Head to the northern or southern shore and you are likely to get a glimpse of these imposing beasts, but keep your distance, as bison are not as friendly or as cute as they appear. If you head to Antelope Island in October you can take part in, or watch, the Buffalo Round-Up, at which the animals are herded to the island's northern end for counting and cataloguing.

Bursting with the vibrant, natural color, Flaming Gorge Reservoir in the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area is a proverbial paradise of pristine wildlife. Take a scenic spring drive along the Flaming Gorge-Uintas Scenic Byway (State Road 44 and U.S. Highway 191) and you will be able to get a roadside view of elk, mule deer, and bighorn sheep. You can also potentially catch a view of pronghorn antelope near the campground at Lucerne Peninsula.

The Florida Seminole Tribe officially approves the name and faithfully works with (trains) the mascot. They see the use as glorifying the tribe as well as their traditions and values.

I heard there is some controversy over that, since there are different factions of the Seminole Tribe that don't agree with official approval by the tribe.
