So this is all because the Standing Rock tribe won't have a stinkin' meeting??? Talk about being hopped up on power.

How about the Smashers? Big boulder, lots of rubble...

You gotta wonder what the SBoHE ISN'T taking care of while they're holding meetings about this non-issue.

NCAA said tribe-based college mascots needed support from the tribe for, like, 30 years. Probably to make sure no one was being offended. I get not wanting to offend anyone. I don't get what the Standing Rock tribe has against UND Fighting Sioux. I mean, if a college mascot is affecting your life, don't you have bigger problems? This isn't Family Guy, here...

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!

If they could, there's no way they would. The family no longer owns the Casinos, the Ralph is a huge source of income for the family. Why take it down?

While talking to a friend who went to UND we came up with one suggestion and one problem. They could be called the PS's for Politically correct but they could not use just the name of the State. The name of the State and the one to it's south both contain the name of a Native American tribe so they should be changed at once, immediately or whatever,.

Actually my condolences to the hockey fans from Grand Forks.

How about "Fighting Irish" or "Seminoles"?
If anyone complains in the NCAA, make them look at Notre Dame and Florida State. If they can have mascot names based on race, why not UND?
Oh yeah, MONEY!




I beat you to it on this one. :p

You forgot to mention the Fighting Illini

Some ideas:
-The University of North Dakota Tree
-The University of North Dakota Yearly Flood Damage
-The University of North Dakota Fighting Nuclear Missiles
-The University of North Dakota Soy Products
-The University of North Dakota Barren Wasteland

Or, if enough students signed a petition:
-The University of Sioux North Dakotans

the new name should be the old name.

Didn't the Sioux come out in favor of the name recently? I seem to recall a NYT article about that.

How about the UND Fighting Grand Forks? The one liners here are obvious.

I know I know...this is no joke. UND has always been the "Fightin Sioux".

How about the "Fighting Sue" and just pick a random hick chick as a mascot?

I am sure that is more fitting of a team from Michigan. I am sure you have plenty of crack whores you can pick up at any corner in Detroit.;)

I vote for either the aforementioned "Fighting Soo", or just UND with no nickname. Either way we could get a corporate tie-in from the railroad or No-Name Steaks.:D

But then they'd have to be named the University of North Dakota Fighting (Soo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soo_Line_Railroad) d/b/a) Canadian Pacifics. Which, considering where most of their players come from, this might be even more accurate. :D

You're ignoring the main point! How long until the UND Flickertails ditch the Canandians for {100% Minnesotans]?
