The University of North Dakota Nazis


I don't know - I think if they're going to go with the Nazi theme, it has to either be Panzer division in honor of Jeff Panzer or Luftwaffe in honor of Hermann/Karl Goe(h)ring and the UND aviaton program.

I'm with the no new nickname crowd. Put North Dakota on the front of the jerseys and leave it at that. There is nothing more hostile and abusive than requiring another to change their own name. So don't give in and change it, just stop wearing it and get by. It's still undignified, but not as bad as acquiescing by picking something new.

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

That's been taken

People just don't stay bribed like they used to. What spineless losers. We need to bring Uncle Ralphie back from the dead so he can bribe and/or intimidate these clowns back into submission (again). :mad:

Any of the ideas in this thread would be fantastic, but I'm sure they'll come up with something completely stupid. Fail.

Im not really loyal to any party . But I do respect the constitution and think the government our forefathers set up was a model thats no longer followed and that saddens me .:mad: That being said I think I like Ralphies for a name :D

Turk, it was Thomas Paine, the father of the American Revolution who said that the words, documents and deeds of of past generations should never dictate how this country should govern itself in following generations. It sounds like a pretty good argument for a constitution that is flexible, changeable, and if necessary, one that can be thrown out entirely for a new beginning.

If you lead the revolution, I can only follow.....due to my advanced age and laziness.

Don't make it "Golden Eagles."

One time perrenial national basketball power, The Marquette Warriors (who also sported the really cool jerseys) were changed to the pc Golden Eagles.
Yergh.
A few first round tourney exits and one Dwayne Wayne powered final four trip since has left them a good but mostly irrelevant program.

Oops. I mean The Golden Eagles would be an excellent choice.

Or alternately, just the "Gold".

Still one of the most *** moments ever from Marquette.

Just go with "NoDaks", but make the logo really offensive!!

Or, as the Illini were able to successfully argue, you could just go with "Dakota"... named after the residents of the state, not the tribe.

Spirit Lake Sioux or Spirit Lakers and keep the logo to honor the Spirit Lake Sioux tribe who supported UND.

Hey maybe they should change the name of the state too. Didnt uncle Ralphie have it in his will that if they changed the name they couldnt play in his beautifull arena ?
