Fighting Illini

I know some people get offended over sports teams names and mascots that concern Native Americans.  And I want to show proper concern, which is difficult for a white American who grew up in Illinois, lived in the city of Pontiac, played on a Jr. High team named the "Warriors," went to a High School where the team was named the "Indians" and had a school newspaper called "The Chief," and rooted all my life for the UofI "Fighting Illini."

As someone named "McCoy," I hope the "Fighting Irish" will change their name.
