The University of Florida is chomping mad. And Florida State is on the warpath. The focus of their aggression? High school athletic departments the universities believe are infringing upon their Gator and Seminole logos.
Last week, Florida sent letters to two schools in Palm Beach County – both nicknamed the Gators – informing them they must change their logos because of trademark violations.
In August, Florida State contacted Southeast High School in Bradenton – the Seminoles – for the same reason.
