    Well, according to the Wikipedia map of Division 1 college football teams I'm looking at, Mizzou is the closest. Then you have Illinois, Arkansas st., and Vandy all relativley (just eyeballing it) the same distance away. But Mizzou by far is the closest.

          NCAA gets serious about school -- and some will pay

          Might as well beat the NCAA to publicly outing these major-college football programs.

          Minnesota. Houston. Texas. Utah.

          The Association would have us believe all of the above are about to be put on double-secret probation. Or something close to it. The NCAA basically said so this week when it got to the heart of the matter of academic performance. Fall below a 50 percent graduation rate, and programs could lose scholarships, postseason berths and, worst case, NCAA membership.

          How's that feel, Flubbed Four? Embarrassed enough? All four of those programs graduated no more than 40 percent of their players -- oops, sorry, student-athletes -- according the latest grad rates. The NCAA already has said 30 percent of I-A falls below its new Academic Performance Rate (APR) standard that approximates those current NCAA grad rates.

          Those four might or might not be in that group when warnings are issued sometime soon, but their recent track record isn't good. And there will be more.

          Later this month or early February, the NCAA will start sending out letters to schools that fall below the APR cut line of 925 (approximately 50 percent). By 2006, offenders could start losing scholarships (up to 10 percent in each sport).

          Then a postseason ban. Imagine Texas being told it can't go bowling.

          The next punishment stage is essentially a new version of the NCAA's death penalty -- loss of membership.

          "We're talking about rather strong penalties here," NCAA president Myles Brand said, adding, "We're talking about the level of major infraction penalties."

          And it might just work. For once, the NCAA has some legislation with teeth -- or at least the red-cheek factor. If nothing else, the "offenders" will be chagrined. The NCAA plans a very public process in notifying and penalizing schools that fall below 925.

          The idea being: Imagine Texas letting things slip to a postseason ban. Supposedly, it won't.

          Schools' grad rates will be tracked term-by-term, year-by-year instead of the antiquated federally mandated six-year window, which was akin to looking at a distant star. Sometimes many coaches, presidents and athletic directors ago.

          The APR is more accurate in that it takes into account transfers going in and out of the program who leave in good academic standing.

          But for now, the old antiquated system is all we have to go on, which is why the four schools were selected for this mini-public flogging. According to the NCAA, 27 percent of the Texas freshman football players entering school in 1997-98...

          NCAA bans Indian mascots, 'abusive' nicknames from postseason
          by DJRamFan
          Aug. 5, 2005
          CBS wire reports

          INDIANAPOLIS -- Fed up with what it considers "hostile" and "abusive" American Indian nicknames, the NCAA announced Friday it would shut those words and images out of postseason tournaments, a move that left some school officials angry and threatening legal action.

          NCAA takes a stand that isn't much of one

          Starting in February, any school with a nickname or logo considered racially or ethnically "hostile" or "abusive" by the NCAA would be prohibited from using them in postseason events. Mascots will not be allowed to perform at tournament games, and band members and cheerleaders will also be barred from using American Indians on their uniforms beginning in 2008.

          Major college football teams are not subject to the ban because there is no official NCAA tournament.

          Affected schools were quick to complain, and Florida State -- home of the Seminoles -- threatened legal action.

          Has any driver in your household had 2 or more accidents or moving violations in the last 3 years? Yes No

          "That the NCAA would now label our close bond with the Seminole people as culturally 'hostile and abusive' is both outrageous and insulting," Florida State president T.K. Wetherell said in a statement.

          "I intend to pursue all legal avenues to ensure that this unacceptable decision is overturned, and that this university will forever be associated with the 'unconquered' spirit of the Seminole Tribe of Florida," he added.

          The committee also recommended that schools follow the examples of Wisconsin and Iowa by refusing to schedule contests against schools that use American Indian nicknames.

          While NCAA officials admit they still can't force schools to change nicknames or logos, they are making a statement they believe is long overdue. Eighteen mascots, including Florida State's Seminole and Illinois' Illini, were on the list of offenders.

          Those schools will not be permitted to host future NCAA tournament games, and if events have already been awarded to those sites, the school must cover any logos or nicknames that appear.

          "Certainly some things remain to be answered from today, and one of those things is the definition of what is 'hostile or abusive,"' said Tom Hardy, a spokesman at Illinois....

          Utes, along with Florida State's Seminoles and Central Michigan's Chippewas removed from list of 18 banned nicknames.

          Sept. 2, 2005

          SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The NCAA gave Utah permission to continue using its Utes nickname Friday, just hours before the school's nationally televised football game against Arizona.

          The university sent a seven-page appeal to the college sports governing body Wednesday, asking that it be removed from a list of 18 schools subject to restrictions because they have American Indian nicknames, mascots or images.

          The NCAA approved the removal of Utah and the Central Michigan University Chippewas from the list.

          ``The NCAA Executive Committee continues to believe the stereotyping of Native Americans is wrong,'' the organization said in a statement. ``In its review of the particular circumstances regarding Central Michigan University and the University of Utah, the NCAA staff review committee noted the relationship between the universities and the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan and the Northern Ute Indian Tribe, respectively, as a significant factor.''

          In its appeal, Utah included two letters in support of the university, one from Maxine Natchees, chairwoman of the Uintah and Ouray Tribal Business Committee, and one from Craig Thompson, commissioner of the Mountain West Conference.

          Utah's mascot dresses as a red-tailed hawk and is unrelated to the state's Indian heritage. Along with the nickname, the other Indian reference the school uses is two feathers on the ``U'' emblem.

          ``I think it's just something we heard clearly from our fans, that we were very respectful of the Ute tribe and we decided to appeal,'' said Chris Hill, Utah athletic director. ``The university has always been close to the Ute tribe. I think it's standard operating procedure to be in touch with the Ute tribe to do the right thing.''

          On Aug. 4, the NCAA said it would ban American Indian images and nicknames by school representatives at postseason tournaments starting in February. Mascots will not be allowed to perform at tournament games, and band members and cheerleaders will be barred from using Indian images on their uniforms beginning in 2008.

          The decision prohibits schools with American Indian mascots from hosting future NCAA postseason events. Schools that have already been awarded postseason tournaments would have to cover any Indian depiction in their sports venues.

          The NCAA also has granted an exception to the Florida State Seminoles.
