What do you guys think about Newberry College's new mascot ?

I have no problem with the WOLVES mascot...the problem I have is having to change it in the first place....mainly over a few Indian tribes in places far far away from SC.....here in Oklahoma....we have numerous tribes....and 100's of the school's have Indian nicknames....and the tribes here are "honored" and supportive of each and every one of them.....the individual and tribe out of North Dakota that started these lawsuits against the NCAA several years ago should be ashamed.............now I'm not saying that in their personal and local situation it was wrong....if the majority in their location thought it should be changed...then thats fine....they shouldnt however be allowed to dictate what the rest of the nation does..just to satisfy a small minority...just seems that too many times it's the "publibity seekers" that get their will imposed in situations that have no bearing on them

As an '85 Newberry College graduate, I have been and will always be an "Indian". Personally, I think it's a crock of bullsh*t to change the name in the first place.

As a current Newberry student, I am a Indian, I will never be a Wolf. I remember a few years ago, right after the Indian was dropped, the football team still wore their Indians shirts under their pads. Some still do. The band still plays the tomahawk chop, and as far as I am concerned, we are still the Indians. A group of people sitting in some office in Indianapolis Indiana will never make me not be an Indian.

I understand why they had to drop the "Indians" mascot, but I wish they would've never gotten an official new one.
If they just stayed "Newberry College" people would still refer to them as the Indians, and it wouldn't be their fault.
