      I graduated from SDSU in San Diego. There was a movement years ago to change the Aztecs, their mascot, to something less 'offensive'. How does having the name Aztec offend people? They were a pre-Columbian Mexican tribe that was wiped out by Cortez' army. How does that offend people? If anything, I would think it would want to be preserved since their tribe is no longer in existence.
