This is really getting ridiculous - UND will resume using the Fighting Sioux nickname. I like the Fighting Sioux nickname, and view it as used out of respect. I just wish they'd commit to either changing it, or keeping it. Obviously I have no influence on what they do. I'm sure there are many alumni with a very strong opinion to keep it, and likely some with a good deal of influence and money decided to pressure UND to keep it. We can just add this to another leaf in the controversy of the UND nickname.

Awesome video responses from the Big Sky Conference. They're not to happy with Sue. Just drop the name and move your programs forward.

Great find. It really baffles me that they moved back to using the nickname, and even more so after hearing the Big Sky's take on everything. I don't envy the administration at that school - they're in a really tight spot between the NCAA and their supporters.

Yep. It's pretty amazing what the nickname supporters are willing to risk. This is what happens when principle and pride gets in the way of common sense.

UND to make an anouncement tomorrow morning at 8am on http://undsports.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. I'm hearing that they'll be announcing the re-instatement of a Native American nickname.

Are you confusing Halloween with April Fools' Day?
It's almost like it's something bigger than yourself.

lol. Apparently. It was just a UND v MN rivalry renewal announcement. I've been hearing hints that nickname progress is being made though. Just jumping the gun.
