The Dubscast, Volume 5: “Offensive” Mascots Prove The Hypocrisy of the NCAA

jdub offensive mascots dubscast

Back in 2005, the NCAA declared that Native American mascots were “hostile and abusive” and outlawed them. Eight years later, the fact they are still around may be the perfect example of why the NCAA is the standard by which one measures ineffective and hypocritical organizations. The fact the debate spread beyond that is even more of a damning statement.

In today’s installment of the Dubscast, J-Dub takes a critical look at how the NCAA really isn’t interested in “hostile and abusive” because it clearly makes decision based on other criteria it won’t tell anybody.  It is important to understand this IS NOT a discussion as to whether these mascots are “offensive,” you will need to get past that debate in order to see the bigger picture in play in this issue.

In other words, after checking out this episode of the Dubscast, you will need to decide for yourself why the NCAA either cannot or will not enforce its own rules.

    Hostile and abusive aside, I’ll never forget sitting in the Orange Bowl watching the U beat up on Rutgers, when an actual fight broke out between the Miami mascot, Sebastian the Ibis and the Rutgers Scarlet Knight. Even with the Knight’s helmet and sword, Sebastian kicked his ass. John Routh, who was Sebastian the Ibis was also Billy the Marlin for the Florida Marlins baseball team. He was one tough mother. As for offensive team nicknames, they all can’t be UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs or Toledo Mud Hens. I don’t find it offensive but rather an honor to be called The FSU Seminoles, although the tomahawk chop isn’t really needed. The Cleveland Indians are okay with me but the cartoon logo should go. The Washington Redskins are as offensive as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Talk about stereotypes. Why not just go all the way and call them the Fighting, Drunk, Small-dicked Irish. This issue will never get resolved on either the NCAA level or the pros.

When the Raiders leave Oakland, there won't be a team left playing on the skinned baseball infield #EndOfAnEra Am I the only bothered by the fact Bruce Arians' Cardinal logos don't face the same way? Because I'm cheap, I will re-purpose just about anything. Because I can't read my own labels, I just tried to clean my stove top with Shout.
