In a discussion with a friend of mine, who happens to be a Gator fan, he was saying that FSU pays the tribe for the use of the name for bribary purposes. How do I respond to that?
I attended FSU and graduated in 2001, and I know that the university did everything in its power to educate folks about the Seminoles and the tribe.

Thanks, Emily. Glad to have input from a double Seminole (graduate & tribal). Are you a descendant of Osceola, by the way? Those of us who are native Floridians and history buffs, tend to have great respect for the Seminole Indians. I cannot imagine Florida State being any thing other than Seminoles and proud of it.

I certainly can't speak for Emily, but I'd tell him that he's a stupid a@@hole.
