This is in response to William & Mary possibly changing its nickname. I have always said that you should take these things on a case-by-case basis. I have not seen anything to suggest that William & Mary's nickname of the Tribe should be changed. If there were some hostile images that it used to represent that nickname, then it should probably be changed. I have not seen that. That was probably the reason that Stanford had to change its nickname from the Indians. There was just a little too much controversy surrounding it. That being said, they should not re-name their team asparagus. They should maybe nickname themselves the Patriots since they are one of the oldest schools in the country.
