  1. I think President Kelley still has a chance to do the right thing (since the rules are always changing anyways)! Let the people vote to get to the top two nicknames, most likely Roughriders and Fighting Hawks. Then have a runoff vote that includes North Dakota (no nickname) as an option. I think this would bring back some credibility and more people would be happier with whatever the outcome was.
  2. I finally had to speak up to this nonsense! Mr. Kelley and Mr. Johnson - I am a graduate of the University of North Dakota and I've been very disappointed in how the nickname process has been handled. My two biggest concerns are changing the rules as we go, and also not including the option of staying North Dakota, which I feel the majority of the people wanted as an option to vote on. The committee voted 7-4 to eliminate the possibility of continuing to play as UND/North Dakota. That is only 2 votes shy of having North Dakota as an option! Since the voting rules were changed to include the option for the Nodak nickname because it was a close vote, why wasn't North Dakota added to the list of nicknames to vote on? I imagine this isn't the first letter you've received regarding the North Dakota option. Truthfully, everyone that I've talked to about the nickname also feels that North Dakota should have been an option and believes this whole process was unfair. It's never too late to do the right thing! Best Regards,
  3. The committee voted 7-4 to eliminate the possibility of continuing to play as UND/North Dakota. It's kind of funny that 36% of the committee wanted to have the option of just leaving it North Dakota, but Nodaks gets put back in the running with only 20.49% of the vote.
