The NCAA considers three of the following four collegiate nicknames hostile and abusive:

Fighting Illini
Fighting Sioux
Fighting Irish

Which is the odd man in?

Special credit if you can also name the one that the NCAA does consider hostile and abusive but is unwilling to substitute its judgment for the judgment of the named tribe, or, in other words, the NCAA will allow them to continue to be abused, but only because they survived the genocide of the 19th century and now suffer from a variant of the Stockholm Syndrome.

Of course, not everyone agrees.
