I heard that the NCAA called Mark Kennedy and apologized for the whole Fighting Sioux name change fiasco. UND will be allowed to use the Fighting Sioux name again starting in January 2017 (once Boeser leaves) with the NCAA's blessing and encouragement. The whole "Sioux Forever" chant at the Garden broke their backs and line of defense.
Geez you guys, talk about burying the lead.
Phil Jackson and the MSG group has offered UND ten years of $50 million per year cash and the NYR franchise in exchange for the UND Hockey program. Just an unconfirmed rumor ... for now.
I have tried to not use the old nickname, the five-letter "S" word, other than in reference to geographical places ever since Standing Rock didn't come to support UND in its time of need.
I do it not against UND; I do it to forget and ignore bad neighbors.
