    Leave it to a person (Grady) to turn this into an issue of race and negativity. If you actually knew anything about Chief Osceola and Renegade you would know that the Seminole tribe supports FSU and the tradition. But I guess it would be typical that an ignorant person of your caliber would post such a pointless comment. Why don't you post your opinions and comments on a message board where you wont seem like such a joke.

    [Florida native, resident] Grady! You have no quality whatsoever! You are of no use. You are filled with hate, and I do not know if your parents had any children that survived! You need to stop smokin' whatever it is that you smoke! You need a drug treatment program, that's for sure, and for certain...But you will still be useless, and you will still be stupid. My Paternal Great Great Granmother, was a Seminole! My Maternal Great Great Granmother was 1/2 Cherokee! You are a bubble off the plumb, Mr. Grady. Chief Osceola died in prison from malaria. Go get yourself some help, put-on your big boy pants, pull-up your boots, and go see a doctor! Word!

    Is there a way to vote if you don't use facebook? I have no interest in a facebook account, but when I looked last week I couldn't find another way to vote.
