I get your passion. I was there with you. But when it came to a point where keeping the name was going to hurt UND athletics (not hosting playoff games, conference affiliation, non conference teams not scheduling us, etc) then I accepted reality and had no other choice but to get on board with UND dropping the Fighting Sioux name. Yes, the nickname process for selecting a new one was a gong show. But it is what it is. And I am glad it is over. The Fighting Hawks is our name and the logo is here to stay. If you don't like it, that's fine. You have the right to your opinion. But just be prepared to get used to it if you live in Grand Forks. The Fighting Hawks name and logo are the official name and symbol of UND. And they should not be afraid to use it. And you don't need to be afraid to accept it.
