I think the solution is obvious. In the face of this travesty by the NCAA the University of North Dakota should show their outrage by withdrawing from the NCAA and shutting down the program. That'll teach 'em! :mad:

LOL that wouldnt happen! IF UND got so upset about this and left the NCAA how bout the WHL? ;)

I think it's the perfect fit and the obvious next step.

I think we need a pole to decide this.

I'm not sure the UND Fighting Polacks is the right solution here.

North Dakota Fighting Cavalry, to honor the people who slaughtered the Native Americans. Would that be considered hostile and abusive?:eek:

Guess not with the DU Pioneers- the reason Native Americans got pushed off their land anyway was the Pioneers and settlers moving west! :-P

on a positive note I can only imagine how many fighting Sioux Jersey's and things UND is going to sell over the next few months!

Oh Watch out other UND! with the Sioux off the list it's a matter of time til the NCAA locks on Notre Dame Fighting Irish!

Why? Because the mascot isn't drunk enough?

But no one really complainst about the Fighting Irish.

But what do you expect? The Irish are used to degradation. It probably feels complimentary to them. Freakin' Irish.

I'm pretty sure Miami still has an independent bookstore that still sells Miami Redskins apparel even though the name was discontinued for more than a decade.

In honor of TJ v. Mike Radja

The North Dakota Fighting (in an elevator) Oshie's.

Just stick his old number on the Native American's cheek and you're good to go.

That would never work since the Crusades were fought against and probably killed thousands of:
"Muslims, although campaigns were also waged against pagan Slavs, pagan Balts, Jews, Russian and Greek Orthodox Christians, Mongols, Cathars, Hussites, Waldensians, Old Prussians, and political enemies of the popes." (wikipedia)

I've never heard of some of those, but if there's any left they might call the NCAA...:p

UND could have a floating nickname. When they play the Gophers: UND Holy Cross Crusaders. When they play DU: UND RIT Tigers, and so on. :p

Here's an easy fix...change name to "Fighting Sue's," in honor to the only winners in this exercise in silliness and PC extremeism--the lawyers who put on this inane production for the State of ND, the NCAA, and the anti-nickname zealots associated with the tribe. Name sounds the same, and the new mascot can be a slick looking barrister in an Armani suit.

So, as someone on the outside that's often heard the rumor, does the Englestad (sp.?) family truly have the ability to take the wrecking ball to the beautiful arena if the politicians and lawyers force a binding name change? Now THAT could keep a lot more attorneys occupied for awhile should this be the case!

According to Wikipedia: North Nickname(s): Peace Garden State,
Roughrider State, Flickertail State, Norse Dakota, The 701

So I say we go with the North Dakota Roughriders
