That logo won UND a football title in 2001. 

No logo has ever won a game, let alone scored a point.

Wow.  This issue has lived a long life. 

I cheer for UND.   I don't like the nickname or the logo, but it is what it is now.   I accept it because it will not go back.  

 

So, I cheer for UND.  If they are the Fighting Hawks, I say, "Go Hawks, Buck the Fison!"

 

Again, I cheer for the University of North Dakota.

The logo and name are the biggest disaster in UND history.  Now throw in a mascot and we are the laughing stock of college sports. It's too bad our administration has to cater to the politically correct world. Not sure who runs our asylum.

What do you mean you don't "accept it"? Like you just pretend reality isn't happening all around you and all the FH logos you see are part of some alternate world that you're dropping by in? You pretend that the settlement never happened, the FS nickname and logo was never retired and the items that they still sell with the FS logo don't have "Dacotah Legacy Collection" on them? I'm very curious on how one chooses not to accept reality.

It's pretty easy. Just throw on my Fighting Sioux sweater, go to the game and see thousands of other Fighting Sioux sweaters, and hear the crowd chanting "Let's go Sioux!"

Also, which nickname was it you voted for since your top choice wasn't an option but your second choice was....?

My wife and I agree that the new name should be just North Dakota. We both said we could live with Fighting Hawks.

What makes us the laughing stock of college sports is having a divided fanbase over a nickname.

100% correct. 

 

Its truly absurd that people still care so much about the nickname change. It’s embarassing.

You think most schools give a damn about our logo situation? I bet most fan bases couldn't even tell you what our old logo was! I wore an interlocking ND hat years ago in the south. Anyone that talked to be while wearing it said Go Irish, dont think one person thought Sioux.

The MOTHER of all NICKNAME/LOGO WARS!

Our Spirit takes a lickin', but keeps on tickin'.

 

The GF Herald has and continues to use barrels of ink on this hostility.

Thousands of our students/alumni hurt from this Fighting, and even a larger number of students/alumni from rivalry campuses - LOL.

The battle in Lost Wages on May 30th between two heavy weights, Kris Engelstad McGarry and president Mark Kennedy, could be a turning point, and finally start to bring some closure to this bloodshed?

I was all on board with just North Dakota.  But that could.not be an option. Now everywhere we go, we see the fighting hawks on the sides of U.S. postal service trucks. That was the best we could do!

If making fun of our logo makes you feel better more power to you.

Thus you do not know truth, as truth is conformity (alignment) of mind and reality. 

The path to true enlightenment is accepting the Hawks name.

Settle down. Our school is in North Dakota, a flyover state and our best sport is a niche sport. Relax. It'll make life easier.... and this is coming from a guy who still wants us to be Sioux lol.

Again, settle down. To think we are the laughing stock of college sports is so silly.

He's not totally wrong.  Outside people are laughing at the "angst" this causes for our hockey fans.  Like zero non-UND people I know understand it.
