W&M denied of NCAA appeal

Posted by thetribehasspoken on August 4, 2006

The College of William and Mary was denied in their appeal of the NCAA logo decision.

“We strongly disagree with the decision by the Executive Committee and find it absurd that the NCAA continues to target William and Mary—a College that sets the standard for the scholar athlete—because of two feathers on our athletic logo,” said William and Mary Athletics Director Terry Driscoll. “We do know that William and Mary will forever be the ‘Tribe’ and that was the most important victory in this entire process. We’ll review the decision about our athletic logo over the next few weeks as we evaluate what’s in the best interest of our student athletes.”

I consider this a good time to bring this post out of the bottom of the archive. It is absolutely ridiculous that FSU gets off based on the fact that the local Tribes support it, but when WM is supported by the local Tribes it is suddenly forgotten. 

Another reason to hate the NCAA.
