I am suggesting a new name. it is the "Spirit Hawks." It can also be combined together as "SpiritHawks" or Spirithawks. The rationale is that one nearby Sioux nation which didn't want the name to disappear is close by Spirit Lake (i.e., Devils Lake, a corruption that took hold from caucasians). Another reason for the word spirit is that it is about the same as energy, even more, in sports. How many universities, colleges, or any teams of any sort have a name which includes the word spirit?

Not very many at all. A google search led me to find close to nothing .....

Hawks is a normal word, but not all that common for team names. It is politically correct, at least until hawks are able to speak. A nice name, respectable, kinda aggressive-sounding. There are lots of hawks in and around North Dakota. There is one who, for the past four years or so, decided to dine on mourning doves in my own back yard. My wife saw a pile of little feathers, after noticing a BIG hawk sitting on our fence ....

Any comments are welcome.

Just what I needed, after not posting for about 8 months.

I thought they already changed it to the Flickertails?

Surely North Dakota wouldn't want to be confused with another hockey team with the word "hawks" in their name.

The Riverhawks? That'd make sense, though!

Chickenhawks has a nice ring to it. Dude, you teed this one up and we are hitting long.

sure, they could just call themselves "the second team in the conference that changed their name to hawks from one that offended the tribes."
it's a bit long, but it gets easier with practice.

Whioux has grown comfortable, and it at least has meaning.

And our fans can finish the anthem with a question.

I was referring to the Blackhawks. Stole their logo, then stole their goal song. Why not just go all the way?

Shouldn't they wait until marriage?

Well, that does capture the essence of the North Dakota fan. But that's the wrong target.

Additionally, now that UND has undertaken its laughable Look At How Sensative We Are Road Show, some will undoubtably point out that it's not inclusive to love seats, females or the educated.

Perhaps they should make it less offensive by changing to Fracking Sioux.

You would think that if one was going to call another uneducated they would spell check what they wrote. *sensative

It's not my Contrition Tour, Sweet Pea. It's UND's.


Even for a fan base as surly as UND's, certainly even they can see the humor in a goodwill effort fronted by a guy with the last name that sounds like Hitlers right hand man to replace a nickname that was extorted with the considerable wallet of a noted Nazi sympathizer.
