    ... and I ain’t talking about the 1974 B movie.

    It is time. Gator band needs to remove it from their repertoire.

    Care to elucidate? I know "Gator Bait" is a common label given to opponents. Is it also a song that the band plays? I don't remember it. (The last game I attended I think was in 1976.)

    If the Seminoles give up their racist mascot of a white dude dressed in "indian attire" with his head cocked back, mouth open like hes receiving, then sure.

    I'd be curious what the reason would be to do away with it.

    Why? Share your views. I am curious why the term “Gator Bait” is ok. I am open minded.

    Tell me why you don’t like it first.

    Then I’ll play your silly game.

    Good grief. You started the thread. You really need to give a reason why you think it needs to be eliminated. Otherwise, your thread just looks like trolling and there's no reason to keep it here.

    I assumed this thread had a very short life span.

    Wasn’t meant to be a game. I have a real question, and it has been something that has bothered me for decades. The term “Gator Bait” has a long a deep rooted history as to the usage. I find it odd that we still use the term.

    This is your last chance to explain or the thread will be axed.

    Sorry, I will articulate with more clarity. The term Gator Bait has a long history of reference to using black babies as bait for catching gators.

    Can you give us some evidence that it's actually true?
