Florida State will be able to use
their nickname, the Seminoles in
post-season tournaments.

F-S-U officials had threatened to
sue the NC- Double-A over its new
policy of that restricts Native
American nicknames.

The N-C- A-A backed off, saying
that allowing Florida State to use the
Seminoles actually recognizes the
relationship the school has enjoyed

with the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

For Florida State and its massive
fan base, it's just the latest in an
off-season riddled with distractions
and controversy.
