"Braves" and "Warriors" seem to be a positive reference to Native American culture to me. "Redskins" could be deemed offensive, so in the sake of unity, I could see dropping that moniker.

But the decision should be made jointly by the college and the representative ruling body of tribe -- not by disgruntled individuals.

If you do not like Redskins how about Blueskins, Pinkskins, Purpleskins, Orangeskins or Greenskins. If those will not suffice just Skins should do. Can't use Reds, so I guess Cincinnati will have to use Blues just like St. Louis in another sport.
