In honor of the College of Engineering and Mines, and the popularity of the Internet in the state of North Dakota, the University of North Dakota is proud to announce their new sports moniker.

That makes sense. Now that the oil boom is crashing, North Dakota is basically a black hole.

I heard they were going to honor the oil boom and their love of ice fishing by calling the team the Bakken Iceholes.

I heard they were going to honor the oil boom and be the North Dakota Frackers.

As a statistician I find this an affront to my heritage and I should note that they have neither sought permission from my tribe nor the computer science tribe with whom we share this sacred name. We feel the permission granted by the business management tribe is neither appropriate nor binding as they do not represent the spirit of our peoples.

You forgot to throw in 'hostile and abusive'. Other than that, well done!

Waste of time. My good bud and UND insider tells me they've all but decided. Just waiting for the formal announcement.

Always worth messing with their data.

Because I'm sure that whatever has been submitted is a tiny amount compared to the amount of Sioux submissions.

There was a Forum article recently (out of Fargo, of course) saying the name might and could well be the Green Meadowlarks. Barf me out with Treflan! If they do that, I might turn into a Gopher fan.

Is it even more offensive to any American minority group?

Along with those south of the Headwaters of the Mississippi. Thus my submission of Breakdancing Hippos will unfortunately not be considered.
