I've always liked the Grambling State Tigers. A good friend of mine went there on a tennis scholarship. Their marching band is fantastic. Love the Bayou Classic. go GSU!

Back in high school....I had a friend of Middle Eastern (mother from Iran) decent. When we played NCAA Football.....he'd always pick the Fighting Camels (yes...he thought the slur was funny) to play with in dynasty mode.

I dont see how the Fighting Camels would be a slur just a different type of animal mascot. I can see how some people would be upset with the term Redskins. but not Chiefs. Have you ever heard of the 2 year Tec school in California that only plays 1 or 2 sports. The students voted and decided to have the mascot name as the Banana Slugs. Go, Slugs, Go!

The HBCUs take more pride in their Battle of their Bands then they do in their football teams.

So what was the scoop? Perhaps you need to invite the English teacher over for dinner!
I'd ask you to do that, but you would probably bed her. If she was mad with you, she would disagree with you then you'd tell me a lye & if you gave her what she needed, she would agree with you even if you were wrong. NO WIN FOR ME! :cool: I guess you would win either way!

Grambling State University likes just to be called Grambling and their Fans are called G-Men.

Georgia State University was a University before Georgia Southern University, but never cared about Georgia Southern using GSU until they got a football team.. Ga. State fans are called any derogatory term you choose & they will answer to it. Ga. State did care about Southern using GSU until they got a football team. Georgia State actually took us to court over the use of GSU as part of our logo.

Just to clear things up, Georgia Southern University is "THE REAL GSU"!!! :cool: :cool::cool:

Fighting camels is not the derogatory term. A derogatory term for people from the Middle East, is camel jockey.

When your Middle Eastern friend played you on a computer Football game did you or your fiends call them a "The Fighting Camel Jockey? If not I don't know why he would think the Fighting Camels would be a slur.

No I wouldn't do that. I love my wife so no need to put my life in the gutter.
