And then there were 2....

Recommended Posts

Well now I have a good reason to not donate when the alumni center calls.  Truly embarrassing that we will be Hawks.  Flickertails would be better.  Rough riders pairs well with Fighting Sioux.  Screw the local yokels opposed to Rough riders because of the high school.

I am with you on your last sentence, but I find your first sentence disturbing and abhorrent. You would be targeting the establishment figures that screwed this whole thing up, but would be hurting the students and student-athletes instead. It's like Kirk said to Khan in Star Trek II.

I fly to away games to support them SiouxFan97.  Don't tell me I don't support them.  I am entitled to my opinion.

But you are NOT entitled to universal acceptance and agreement with your opinion.

They seem to represent the entitled population who want "this or nothing". 

I for one have changed by mind according to the beliefs of THE VOTERS. The majority has spoken; thus, I will get on board and move on. 

Go UND!

let's not lump everyone together that voted a certain way.     I voted Nodaks, but will move on and will now be voting Fighting Hawks.   Go Hawks!

So disgusted that the whole process has come down to this. I almost wish the consultants/committee had just come out and said, "There will be a nickname.  Which bird should we pick?"

If that's the threshold for your support of the University, good riddance.

It is actually very entertaining to read all the threads about vote this or vote that.  Voted FH in first vote, RR in second, and could vote either way as the only two I can stand are remaining.  Funny thing is the whole pushing of your favorite or athlete's favorite can push people away instead of bringing them into your corner.  How about someone just makes a single thread of the positives and negatives of each possible winner.  At the end of the day all the name calling will stop and we will need to rally around this change together.

How many of you hockey folks thought "Wild" was the dumbest nickname choice ever...and now have 17 different Minnesota jerseys hanging in your closet because that logo is just so damn cool?  

Show of hands, please, by +1's or -1's.

But remember, some people care ONLY about Men's Hockey and that's it.

Roughriders is just too old school for kids.  Would Buckeyes, or Badgers, or Hoosiers, or Cornhuskers actually win in their states if they weren't the name now?

So how long until UND drops the "Fighting" and goes with just Hawks or a different adjective?

exactly.  I made this same point a couple weeks ago.  both nodaks and roughriders sounded ancient to the students.   and no-   buckeyes, hoosiers, etc. would never garner student support if they were to vote today.
