Animal-rights Group Moves to Stop JSU from Using 'Gamecocks' Nickname
For the second time in four years, the animal-rights group People for the
Ethical Treatment of Animals has asked the National Collegiate Athletic
Association to stop Jacksonville State University and the University of South
Carolina from using the nickname “Gamecocks” because it supposedly promotes the
sport of cockfighting.
