Get your hostile and abusive souvenirs here!

The Baltimore Sun reported that the NCAA's online souvenir shop, shopNCAAsports.com, is selling hostile and abusive souvenirs. Among the items you can find there, but not bring or wear to a championship event are:

  • Chief Illini (sic) Pendant
  • North Dakota Hockey Jersey
  • Utah Utes Hat
  • Central Michigan Chippewas Clock
  • Arkansas St Indians Beanbag Chair

    However, if you're looking for SE Oklahoma St Savages gear, you're out of luck.

    The NCAA says it will stop selling such items on its site by the same February 1, 2006 date that the "hostile and abusive" mascot policy goes into effect.

    The NCAA has always been a load of hypocrites. They bitch about a playoff and yet they approve a 12th game. They complain about "student athletes" not getting study time yet they love March Madness. They nail tiny schools for small violations and ignore the big ones. I oculd go on and on...
