The NCAA has shown again that it will STEAMROLL anyone who opposes its agenda.  If you have any doubt how serious they were about scrubbing "Fighting Sioux" from the history books, you only need to lo

Hey Darrell maybe it's time to for you to move on as well with these comments. Most of us who follow North Dakota sports whether we're hockey only or all  UND Sports fans have moved on. Now it's time

No, but for future reference you can learn to read faster.  Too bad all those "Sioux Forever" chants at Scheels Arena today couldn't prevent the choke job.

After a couple of years with the new nickname, I still cannot refer to the teams as Fighting Hawks. First, if it had to be an animal, why a bird? If it had to be a bird, why the 321st rendition of a hawk? Heck there are Red Hawks playing baseball in Fargo and Blue Hawks playing NAIA in Dickinson. And then, if it had to be a hawk, why the modifier "fighting"? Hawks don't fight, in real life hawks are often chased and harassed by little birds. They try to get away.

I did buy a Fighting Hawks headcover for 1 of my golf clubs to go with the old interlocking ND ones. Still not particularly fond of the name. 

Also have a set of Brien logo headcovers, bought at the end of the Fighting Sioux era, that may make an appearance one of these days.

Yup. It could've had teeth and biceps*. 

 

*The logo. Yes, the mascot roving the rink has "biceps".

Well, they get chased because they ate their babies, so that’s kind of badass.

So, with that avatar, you've got a thing against birds? :huh:

Busted. Good one, Sica. However, I didn't call for the UND teams to be called the roadrunners. Had a coyote avatar (also the Warner Bros cartoon character) first, but got confused as being a South Dakota Coyote on this board. Just a tip of the cap to the local wildlife where we now live.

Not sure eating babies is badass

You are correct. It could have ... been... The Fighting Dave K's or the Firing Darells. :D

File this in the “missed logo opportunities” folder.

Halifax Thunderbirds (Lacrosse).  I would love this look for UND (minus the lightning bolt of course).

The feathers are a great addition and the stern look is reminiscent of the ‘disappointed dad’ from the St. Louis Football Cardinals.

It’s so funny to read the comments on social media about the reason UND hasn’t been in the tourney for the last two years. The little birdy on the uniform is the whole difference. People are calling it a curse. I guess those folks think that little logo will be the death of the program because I don’t see it being removed.

You don't hear Bison supporters yell,  "let's go Aggies" at their events nor Stsnford fans holler 'Go Indians go".... Maybe the hockey team has an 'identity crisis' when they hear those who like  to live in the past yell "Let's go Sioux"...when they're  not...that anymore...Time to live in the real world....that name 'was, but ain't ever going to be'....look around it's 2019....Deal with what is.....get out of your hole and breathe the fresh air....

How many people at the high school hockey tournament yelled “Let’s go Redskins”. If people want to yell Go Sioux, whatever, but to blame the season on the Hawks logo is sad and pathetic.
