So I Guess Fighting Hawks It Is

Recommended Posts

I wonder how much UND paid for the extra, needless round of voting.. 

My guess, about 20 K. 

Follow the rules next time UND....

Yes.  The round of 5 was all that was needed.  Would have been the same result too. 

Any ballot that contains only 2 choices and no write-ins is ridiculous.

Can we please not have a muscle-bound hawk logo?

Come on, that is a pretty bad-a$$ hawk. Hear him... SQUAWK?

The new mascot could be "Mike".  Mike the Hawk.  Mike Hawk.

I think you just officially SOLD me on this nickname!!!

Hey guys, I just thought of a heck of a spin off the old Sioux Yeah Yeah cheer with an abbreviation of the new name...

Let me say it out loud to hear how it sounds......

F'Hawk Yeah Yeah!!

Yeah F'Hawk F'Hawk!

Well we've already seen how unique we became with the monitor pegging us as RedHawks per Brad's blog.

because it is..that guy ripped off pretty much every other ______ hawk school with the hawk head (very subtle rip off of bb logo with the yellow and red...nice), oregon ducks with the winds flayed out, the philly eagles with the helmet, and miami with the "u" concept..that guy should be embarrassed instead of "i hope they choose my designs"...total joke

He's back and he is bitter, imagine that!

i'm thinking if the RR would have won he could have posted this pic as a potential helmet design he came up with....

You sure freak out anytime Roughriders is brought up and get extremely defensive about any perceived slight against the F'hawking nickname. 

But heaven forbid other people have opinions & feelings about the nickname ordeal.

"The university will soon issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) inviting professional marketing firms to submit proposals for development of a graphic identity, including a logo and style guidelines, to accompany the new nickname.

UND is not soliciting or accepting graphic identity suggestions from other parties. The selected vendor will work with UND stakeholders to develop potential identities."

There is no way that the agency that gets this proposal submits anything close to what was going around on the Internet as a hawk logo. I do hope they get the message that a Fighting Hawk doesn't have to be a bird ie: it could tie in with the school and regions aviation history.

Gee, I wonder why? This is what happened to me and others when.....no nickname was available, was voted off by 7 people, was brought back, when Nodaks was our next choice, when Nodaks lost the vote but brought back, when Nodaks was defeated!

And all the bs was written over and over and over and over from.......yep you guessed it, the RR diehards on here. It's all fine until someone does it back to you?

That's bull$%!#. If they want this thing to work they should allow anyone to submit. A local artist could get way more support (Ben Brein) and would actually understand what was so special about fighting sioux and what the standard is for UND.
