For The Love of God, Not Fighting Hawks

Recommended Posts

 Agree with you 100%... But I think It will be the "Fighting Hawks" because there to many NoDak voters against Roughrider name.

Should be a great hockey series this weekend, Hawks vs Hawks. Go Hawks. Sad so sad!

Not what I wanted either, but it's 1000 times better than Roughriders.   I'll be voting Fighting Hawks when it resumes.

Wow that logo is sick. So dope. It's like super fierce.

And, of course,  not UND's.  Who knows what the logo will be?

Looks like Kelley and his hired consultants will win.  Hope I'm wrong.

This thread will only steer people towards Fighting Hawks.

very true.  you are about the only Roughrider supporter who posts that doesn't call people who have voted for other options uninformed morons.

Completely agree with this thread steering people towards Fighting Hawks.  I'm fine with either, but the more people act like their opinion is more important than others and those that are voting for the Fighting Hawks are the "uninformed" you are digging your own grave.  The arrogance of people on this forum is sad since we are all going for one team when this is all over.

OK. @ Siouxphan27 and snooty89, Why would you choose Hawks, something common, over Roughriders, something unique? I think roughrider fans struggle to express their incredulity with this question, and it comes across insulting and condescending.

This has been brought up numerous times, but:  don't want to copy Red River, Roughriders isn't really a ND name,  doesn't fit the women's teams, not unique in that other teams besides RR use it (I know FH isn't either so it doesn't apply to either), and most importantly, I TOTALLY DISLIKE THE NAME!!!   Probably a few more I could name if I wasn't so sick of this subject.

Until it's resurrected again tomorrow morning?

Will it come back as "Zombie Nodaks".?

That might get the college kids to vote for it...

Roughriders less ND-related than Hawks? Lady Riders doesn't work for the womens teams?

Roughriders is about as masculine as Sioux.

There exists one other DI school with the Fighting Hawks name, beside the 40 odd adjective-Hawk schools:

Maryland-Eastern Shore Fighting Hawks

Even with the adjective, it not unique.

Even with the LOGO-that-won't-BE-the-logo floating around...at least there is an avenue of creativity there with Fighting Hawks that could result in something like the LOGO-that-won't-BE-the-logo but even cooler...that could be the REAL contest!!  But also probably result in 4-5 internet votes too...sorry

Everyone has an opinion.  Everyone's opinion is valid from their point of view...there is a reason why a few guys named Franklin, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, etc painstakingly avoided a straight democracy and rather created a democratic representative republic.  A simple majority should never be able to invoke their will over a large minority.

Higher Ed, however, is a business.  Businesses are definitely NOT republics and even further from a democracy.

This is an exercise in manufactured outcome with an orchestrated democratic process as its artificial justification.

I happen to personally like RoughRiders better than Hawks.  I actually liked a number of names better than either option, but none of those names made the original voting list.  I really kinda liked the "roosters"- pheasant reference with ties back to old Foghorn Leghorn, but hey, what can you do : )
