Bear in mind this is the same uGA team that ran Ohio State's Justin Fields out of town. Fields was allowed to transfer without sitting out a year because a uGA baseball player was screaming racial epithets at him at a game.

Washington Redskins starting the process of potentially changing their name after FedEx and several other sponsors urged them to do so.

And here it is: the Redskins are undergoing a thorough review of the teamís name.

And letís be clear: Thereís no review if thereís no change coming.

Redskins on way out.

Folks online suggesting the name of Washington Red Tails in honor of the WWII Tuskegee Airmen, which is a pretty cool suggestion.

I think it would be smart to just stay away from renaming the team after any group of people.

I just realized Red Tails refers to their plane and not them. This works

It begs for a Windsor Spitfires kind of logo treatment.
